It snowed in Minneapolis this week. I actually had to take out my winter coat so I'd be warm enough to walk the dog one morning. Sometimes even I wonder; “why should I bother having my toe nails polished this time of the year, who will ever know?”
As I ventured out at an ungodly hour on the frigid dog walk, it dawned on me why. Even in the darkest days of winter the promise of spring is still there dormant under the snow. And even if no one can see my vibrantly shaded toes beneath the layers of socks and boots, I know they are there.
It's a good thing too, since as I write this I am on a plane to Miami and soon every one will see my cobalt blue tootsies frolicking in the sand and surf.
So what does a good pedicure entail and can you get the same results at home as in a salon? Aside from the awesome foot massage of course.
Here are the steps to an expert pedicure:
Some of my favorite "of the moment" colors:
OPI: That's Hot Pink
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri: Split Lime
Sally Beauty Supply has these tiny nail colors called Sally Girl. They are great for travel, and the perfect size when you want to experiment with really fun colors. In fact, that's where I found the awesome cobalt blue (called "Epic") I am wearing in the photo. My daughter and her friend call it "blurple."
I hope to bring some of the Florida sunshine back with me, so get those toes ready for some serious exposure!
Have a question just ask me.....
