Use a foot scrub or pumice stone to gently remove dead skin cells and calluses. Focus on areas like the heels and balls of your feet.
Trim your nails straight across and file them to your desired shape. Avoid cutting too short and gently push back the cuticles with a cuticle pusher.
Massage a nourishing foot cream or lotion onto your feet, paying attention to dry areas. You can also apply a hydrating mask for an extra boost of moisture.
Apply a base coat, then two thin layers of your nail polish color. Topcoat for gloss and durability. Dry each layer.
