Getting Those Toes Ready For Summer! Learn To Love Your Feet
Finally it’s May. It felt like a long, gloomy winter. Those first few sunny days, that warm breeze. You open the closet, take out the flip flops, and then realize in horror that you’ve done little to no maintenance on those feet in months!
A hack job here and there on the nails, the occasional inspired heel filing, but that’s about it. Is that polish left over from your last pedicure for the Christmas party? Oh my.
Over the next couple of weeks we’re going to explore the best ways to take care of and maintain beautiful feet, the esthetician way! We’ll talk about tips and tricks that being in the industry has taught us over the years and give you guides on how to do everything from how to properly file your feet to how to apply french polish on your own toes. The steps to a pro pedicure will be broken down.
There are at least three estheticians in this office on any given day. Between us we have 16 years combined experience and thousands of pedicures. We know feet. I asked around to find out what is the more important thing they’ve learned about foot care.
Leanne (Manager, Esthetician for 8 years): “Try filing the feet when they’re dry, you’ll get a smoother finish”
Majida (Book Keeper, Esthetician for 6 years): “Always moisturize. Always. Go do it right now”
Sheena (That’s me. Social Media/Merchandiser, Esthetician for 3 years): Use a nail file on your toe nails. You get rid of those jagged edges that catch on socks and sheets and it makes a huge difference to the tidiness and look of the foot.
I always loved doing pedicures the best. They were like mini, hour long art projects. It always broke my heart how insecure people could be, or how quickly others could grossed out. It was also consistently hilarious to hear from every client a variation of “Sorry my baby toe is so weird”.
We’ve seen everything from foot models, to the worst fungus and athlete’s foot. We’ve done pedicures on babies, to the elderly to paraplegics. Feet are amazing in their diversity and it’s the time of year to celebrate that!
So get out that foot file! Prep the nail file! Choose a saucy color that represents you as a person! We’ll help you establish an easy foot care routine that will have others noticing and coveting your look.
First things first. Go get a pedicure.
If it’s been awhile, leave the tough work for the professional. They have a better angle.
After that or if yours aren’t particularly bad, upkeep and maintenance are all you need.
