• The first thing to do is to remove any old nail polish residue from the nails. Then wash your feet and take a foot bath , leaving them to soak for about a quarter of an hour in hot (not boiling) water with a baking soda or coarse salt. If times, you can also add 4-5 drops of lavender essential oil to the water, which has relaxing, deodorising, antiseptic and antifungal properties.

• Immediately after, gently dry your feet and eliminate calluses by rubbing them with pumice stone. Shorten your nails using the nail clipper and a cardboard file. Be careful to give them a straight and square shape, otherwise they will grow under the skin and become incarnate. Using a wooden stick, push the cuticles back and then feed them with a special oil or cream.

• After preparing the nails, it’s time to apply the nail polish . You can choose the color you like best and, if you are good enough, you can also create special nail art . Always start by applying a transparent base polish , preferably reinforcing and anti-yellow. Let the base dry and then go to the first coat of colored nail polish . Once dry, make a second coat of color, if necessary. Finally, seal everything with a transparent top coat , concentrating mainly on the tip of the nail.

• To complete the pedicure, apply a nourishing and deodorant cream , massaging the feet gently for a few minutes.
