How to Achieve a Spa Pedicure at Home

How to Achieve a Spa Pedicure at Home  via

Do you like getting your toes done but hate paying nail salon prices?  Today, I am showing you how to achieve a spa pedicure at home.

Items You Need
  • Foot tub
  • Bath salts
  • Towels
  • Nail kit (cuticle oil, nail file, nail clipper, cuticle stick)
  • Pumice stone
  • Nail polish
  • Cotton Pads
  • Foot lotion
  • Nail polish remover
  • Foot scrub

Step One: If you have nail polish on your feet currently, remove it with the cotton pads and nail polish remover.
Step Two: Fill your foot tub with water that is comfortable for you and add in the bath salts. If you want the salon feel, you can invest in a foot spa

Step Three: After ten minutes or so get to work on your cuticles with the cuticle oil and cuticle stick. If you have never used a cuticle stick before, it can be helpful to watch a video on YouTube to ensure that you do not injury yourself accidently. 

Step Four: Rub the foot scrub all over your feet and go over the bottom of your feet with the pumice stone. If you have a lot of dead skin on your feet make sure that you go over the affected areas thoroughly. 

Step Five: Dry your feet off and rub in the foot lotion. While rubbing your lotion in you can give yourself a mini foot massage. 

Step Six: Trim your nails if needed and file them with the nail file to make them look pretty. (NOTE: Some prefer to do this ahead of step five, which is fine to do.)

Step Seven: Polish your toes and show off your new pedicure. (NOTE: Remember to use a base coat and a top coat so your pedicure can last for the maximum amount of time.)

Things to Keep in Mind
I have just discussed the basic way of achieving a spa pedicure at home. You can make changes to it as you see fit. Some prefer to wrap their feet in hot towels with a mud mask for additional time and others have to use electric shavers to take care of the hard spots on their feet. These directions are just here to show you that you can achieve a spa pedicure at home and do not have to let luxurious nail salon visits ruin your budget and bank account. 

Do you prefer to get your toes done at a nail salon or do them yourself at home?


  1. I don't go to a salon but this reminds me that need to treat myself to an at home pedicure!

    1. I stopped going to nail salons because it was becoming expensive and also they were damaging my nails, probably because their tools weren't clean.

  2. I need to do this :) I'm a little weird about people messing with my nails. I've never had my nails or toes done. I always paint them myself and it's usually in a very rushed manner. I need to make it more relaxing like this.

    1. You're better off doing your own nails Sonya.

  3. If I'm a 100% sure that I'm going to get a good deep cleaning job I will go to the salon with my fav lady, if is not the case I will do it my self as I like it!
