What is sexy without being too sexy? I mean a subdued hot,thats
sexy,right? Of course you can go on full throttle with what that
I am about to discuss,and thats okay. Go ahead those are your
What am I talking about? Unless you skipped reading the title
you know I am talking about mani-pedis:manicures and pedicures.
This is a full guide that tells you how to get(and give)a perfect
ten. Oops I mean twenty!
Nail tool case
Start with fresh clean tools. Use an antibacterial soap
to clean them,pat them dry with a towel and let them finish
air drying for 15 minutes before using them. Do this after
and keep them in a chic storage case.
Trim your finger nails,and clean then using the cleaner.
Then buff your fingernails in a circular motion until your
nails become shiny. After all that use a nail file,and shape
your nails. Space out your fingers with a finger separator.
Start with a clear bottom coat and let dry. Paint to your
nailpolish starting with a small coat,once that dries add
a second coat. Once all coats of polish is dry add the top
coat to seal inthe color. After all that rub a lotion on
your hands and your mainicure is complete.
To do the pedicure soak your feet in a tub of warm water for
about 10 minutes(rose petals optional). Take them out and scrub
with a foot scrub and pumice stone then rinse your feet off.
Place your feet on a soft surface like a towel. Trim,clean,and
buff your nails. Trim your cuticles with a cuticle clipper and
shapedthem with a nail file. Use separators or tissue paper to
separate your toes,start again with a bottom coat and let dry.
Add a coat of polish to dry then add a second coat of nail polish.
After that dries,finish with a top coat and let dry.
Finish the pedicure with some foot lotion and you're good to go.
