Common Pedicure Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

With a bit of time and a little effort spent on a quick home pedicure, you'll have silky feet and perfectly polished tootsies that will leave everyone envious. However, if you’re not careful, you could cause more harm than good. From cuts, to the right time to use a file, we’ll take you through some of the most common pedicure mistakes and how to avoid them.

Cutting your Feet
Cuts can easily happen at a moment’s notice, especially if you aren’t paying attention. From catching the skin with a nail cutter to just a small graze from filing, you could end up with a bacterial or viral infection if the cut is deep enough. This can particularly happen if you trim the cuticle, which you should leave alone, or in the hands of professionals.

Not Letting your Feet Dry
Similar to above, once you’ve beautifully coloured your toe nails it’s important to keep them dry. Wear flip flops after lacquering up, and try to keep your toe nails dry until the gloss has set. They can take some time to dry completely so expose your feet to some fresh air to help.

Top Up Your Nails
It’s quite easy to forget that after all that work, you will also want to protect your toes and feet from the sun. UV blockers can turn your nail polish yellow, so if you apply a UV blocker, wipe your nails down afterwards with a towel. A topcoat will protect your nails from the sun, but it can break down over time, so remember to top up your nails every few days to keep you covered.
