This summer is all about big bright bold colours, and Essie’s Spring Collection is perfect for creating a summertime pedicure. Check out our step-by-step guide to achieving flawless feet.
Step One: Prep!
Make sure your toenails are nice and clean, remove any old polish with a remover such as Cutex Strengthening or Moisture Guard Remover.
Step Two: Shape
They key to a perfect paint job is getting the nail nicely prepared, shape, file and buff the nail to create a smooth finish making painting easier.
Step Three: Moisturise!
We love the Elemis Spa at Home Soothing Foot Cream, this is rich in shea butter and jojoba oil which sink into the skin providing moisture to even the most driest areas. This lovely cream is also infused with a blend of aromatic patchouli, lemon and eucalyptus oils making it incredibly soothing for tired feet.
Step Four: Lacquer up!
A base coat helps to even out the nail bed and prolong the wear time of your chosen colour, we love the Sally Hansen Double Duty as this dries nice and fast. For our perfect pedicure shade we went for Essie’s Style Hunter, a gorgeous laser sharp crimson that is seriously traffic stopping. The Essie formulas are very long lasting and have a nice glossy finish to them. To finish off our pedicure we like to use the Seche Vite Top Coat, this dries super fast and gives a gel like appearance to the nails.
Now you are ready to hit the beach! Have you tried the Elemis Foot Cream yet?
