How to do a mini spa pedicure

Pedicures at the salon are great and you should try to have them sometimes, but when it is not possible, the Lindisima version of a mini spa pedicure is ideal.  It will take about 25 minutes or less and your feet will look great and feel even better. 



You will need:
Great attitude - this is a time for you
25 minutes
A nail file of high quality
A feet file
A plastic or glass bowl big enough for a foot bath with warm water
Cotton balls

2 tablespoons of sugar
5 table spoon of oil, and optional 3 drops of essential oil or lemon juice.

A orange stick
Nail polish remover
2 fluffy towels and a 2 small towels
Optional: nail polish of your preferred color and color base if you are using a strong color (this will take additional time)
hand or body lotion and oil (it can be body oil or a light vegetable oil such as olive or sunflower)
A nail cutter

1- Identify a good place to get your pedicure; it has to have a a comfortable chair.  Place all the ingredients and tools next to it.  Place one of the towels on the floor
2- Mix 5 tablespoons of oil, essential oil or lemon juice and sugar
3- Prepare the foot bath with warm water, 4 tablespoons of oil.  Place on the towel (the one you have put on the floor)  
4- Wet the 2 small towels and put in the microwave so they get hot, then place them in a plastic bag for future use. 
5- Pedicure time. Eliminate any nail polish you may have  
4- Cut your nails and file them to your desire shape
5- Put your feet into the water and let them be there for 10  minutes (at least 5 minutes if you do not have time)
6- Now push your cuticles with the orange stick
7-  Apply the scrub on your feet.  Make sure every area is treated.   
Wash it out with the foot bath water, dry the feet and move the foot bath to the side. 
9- Gently apply some oil or cream to the nail and massage the cuticles
10-   Wrap the towel around your hands and leave it on for 3 to 5 minutes or until they are not warm any more.  
11- Get your feet file and pass it on the rough areas.  If you are not applying polish, you are done; if not
12- Apply the base coat (transparent nail polish) wait for a minute or 2 and apply one coat of you color, wait 3 minutes and apply second coat.
