The At-Home Pedicure Guide 2010

So, after posting the Spa giveaway and reading your wonderful comments, I thought I would share with you a few tricks that I use to get my spa visit at home. While we all know that getting a pedicure is something we could do until the moon merges with the sun, it surely can get expensive. Well, at least until you win the $125 spa giveaway here!! You still have time to ENTER

I use Fresh's Brown Sugar Body Polish to start off. After you you've soaked your feet, then lather it up with this yummy goodness before using a foot buffer.

My fave buffer is the Soap & Glory utterly fantastic foot buffer that comes with three different filing heads, including a portable file for in between the toes. Once I'm done scrubbing, "yes, really - I scrub" was my feet off.

Then, I use this awesome stuff from Bliss, its the Foot Patrol - OMG, can I say good. As you can see, they have a range of yumminess for the discerning woman who loves to feel good!
Once I get this stuff on my foot, I use the socks that comes with this package "see, its on her hand" and I sit there with my foot propped up for about 10-15 minutes. After which, I use a warmed towel and gently wipe the lotion off.
I select my favorite OPI color - depending on my mood, use a top coat and also a base coat and voila! I'm done!!! Smoochable toes...

so, what's your summertime pedi ritual?


  1. I LOVE Fresh's brown sugar polish! I want to eat it (not really, but you get the point)!!

  2. I love Bliss stuff...Such a great post:)....Kisses,sweetie

    Ps: I am having a really great GIVEAWAY today…hint?(something you can wear) so please join in !!!!

  3. i gave myself a pedi last night :o) .. going to the spa today but i hate paying $75 for a pedi when i can do myself - even tho it sure does feel nice when someone does it!

  4. Okay I'm going to have to order the brown sugar body polish! This is a great at home spa idea, thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Such a great post!! This is much like my at-home routine :)

  6. oh, I bet that brown sugar scrub smells sooo good!

  7. I might have to get me that sugar scrub!
    I was using one that was a milk sugar scrub, worked pretty good!
    Too bad it looks like a 5 year old painted my toes when I attempt too! I shake to much! hahaha

  8. Is it weird that I'm now dying for that foot buffer? My feet get so gross from wearing heels and sandals in the summer that buffing them is like a detox. (Sorry for the TMI!)

    P.S. The header for your blog is adorable. I love it!

  9. This is perfect since I'm at the beach right now :) So far it's sand and sea weed working me over! Love the pictures on your last post!!

  10. That brown sugar body polish sure looks edible! I have the bliss products at home that i currently use and they're awesome! Very informative post;-)

  11. All those OPI colors... ::drool:: !!!

  12. The brown sugar body polish is my FAVE...I could handle all these steps - except the polish. I suck at that part!!


  13. I really need the brown sugar polish on my heels! I agree with Carrie-I suck at the polish part. Sat morning I tried to get a pedi at my favorite place and they were so busy I left. I went to CVS and got an ok color and then did it myself. NOT doing that again!
    Love all the OPI colors :)

  14. Great post, the scrub looks amazing I can only imagine that it smells great too!

  15. Oooh, what a great idea!! I lovev that body scrub!

  16. I've heard only good things about Fresh-must try it.

  17. I've never attempted a DIY mani or pedi. I have to admit that when it comes time I just head to the salon, I just don't think I'd do a very good job!

  18. i love fresh scrub! wish it was a tad cheaper, though.

  19. Love this post! I used to go to a salon regularly, that was heaven! I must go again, I need some pampering in my life!

  20. Great tips and thank you for including the products you use. I'd like to include this post in my Cups of Tea tomorrow (Sunday). Such a great resource. By the way, congrats on keeping the fitness going for four days! It always amazes me how much more energy, better sleep and less moody I feel when I work out consistently. Keep up the great work!
