The seriousness of proper summer TOE maintenance

Girls, if you can’t afford to get a pedicure, which is totally understandable in these tough economic times, then you can always do it yourself. I am by no means a professional, but I tend to do my toes quite often and have gotten compliments on them.

Step 1 – remove all traces of old polish, Sally Hansen nail polish removers work pretty good and they are cheap.

Step 2 – take nail clippers (not scissors) and remove all dead skin in and around all toes.

Step 3 – take the other part of the nail clippers (not sure what it’s called) and remove all grossness from under the toes.

Step 4 – cut/file the nails to your liking.

Step 5 – apply a moisturizer of some sort to the toes. Sally Hansen makes this cuticle and nail oil that I love. It say’s to remove it after letting it sit for a while, but I never do.

Step 6 – VERY IMPORTANT – apply a base coat before the polish. This will stop the nail from going yellow. Revlon has a two in one base/top coat which is really good.

Step 7 – apply polish – three coats for your big toes and two coats for all other toes. Then apply the top coat.

I know it seems like a lot, but if you’re just sitting around watching TV, you might as well get prepped for open toed shoes. Besides, I hear there are a lot of men out there with foot fetishes…and we can’t discount anyone for their weirdness’, cause everybody is weird.
