How to Fake a Salon Pedi

I was so excited about the warm weather this past weekend, I had grand plans to get my first pedicure in months. But I was too busy actually enjoying said warm weather to commit to an hour in the nail salon. Luckily, I have a few products in my arsenal that helped get my feet sandal-ready.

How to Fake a Salon Pedi

1. Farmhouse Fresh Honey Heel Glaze, $24 for 3oz.,

I brush a bit of this all over my feet, put on some socks and let this honey-infused mixture go to work. My feet emerge moisturized and soft. If your feet are super dry and crackly, you’ll want to go with a scrub. There are a ton of DIY scrub recipes on Pinterest — I’m a fan of this one from The Beauty Department.

2. Earth Therapeutics Foot Therapy Moisturizing Socks, $25,

These retail for $25, but I bought a pair of these on clearance at my local Target. They’re not exactly stylish, but they’re kind of like walking on (slippery) clouds. They are lined with a gel that moisturizes and soothes tired feet. I never sleep with socks on, but I wear these at night while I watch TV or read — even wearing them for an hour produces results!

3. Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream, $8.99,

In addition to moisturizing coconut oil, this well-reviewed foot cream boasts refreshing rosemary and peppermint extracts. Put it on in the morning to add some pep to your step, or slather it on before bed for a deeper treatment.

Now the only thing you need is a spring-friendly polish color. Make it bright and beautiful!

Stay beautiful,
