Why spend $40 on a pedicure when achieve the same results in the comfort of your own home? True, there probably won’t be a massaging chair that makes you shake, but your feet will feel just as soft and your nails will look flawless. Follow the steps below to get a salon-like pedicure without leaving your home.

Step 1: Soak your feet in warm water. Splurge a little and buy yourself a footbath.

Step 2: After you’ve soaked your feet, remove dry skin or calluses with a foot file. I love using Amope’s Pedi Perfect Wet and Dry Electronic Foot File. It really gets the job done.

Step 3: To make yourself feel like you are at the spa, use a foot scrub that will exfoliate and soften your feet.

Step 4: Rinse your feet and pat dry with a super soft towel. To make the experience even more luxurious, toss it in the dryer for a few minutes so it’s warm when you’re ready to use it. Once your feet are dry, apply lotion to moisturize. Look for something with lavender, which is super soothing and relaxing.

Step 5: Cut and shape your toenails to your liking. Remember to file your nails in one direction!

Step 6: Apply a base coat to your toenails and when dry, paint your nails your desired color. I love Essie’s Bikini So Teeny for summer.

Step 7: Once your polish is dry, apply a top coat so the nail color stays in place.
