Every woman enjoys a good pedicure. I know I do. It is just so relaxing to sit back in a chair and have a professional pamper your feet. However, it can be frustrating paying all that money only to have your nail polish chip the next day. There are several things that can ruin your pedicure including stubbing your toe and putting your shoes on right after your nail polish is applied. Wearing shoes that are too tight for your feet and swimming in a chlorinated pool can also ruin your pedicure. You paid good money to get your feet looking so nice, so you should learn how to get the most out of your pedicure.
Don't Be In a Rush To Leave the Nail Salon
Many women try to rush out of the nail salon as soon as their pedicure is done. It is a huge mistake. Putting your shoes on right after you get your nail polish applied will totally spoil your pedicure. Be patient and sit in the salon for at least 20 minutes. Ask the pedicurist if you can put your feet under a dryer so that they dry faster.
Moisturize Your Feet Every day
To keep your feet looking smooth, make sure to moisturize your feet every day after you take a shower. If you don't have a moisturizer that is specifically made for feet, at least use one that contains shea butter.
Buy Nail Polish That Matches Your Pedicure
Before you leave the nail salon, make sure to purchase the nail polish the pedicurist used on your nails. This way, you can touch up your nail polish at home.
Apply a Top Coat Every Other Day
A great way to prevent your nail polish from chipping is to apply a clear top coat every other day. The top coat will prevent your nail polish from coming off.
Following these simple tips can really make your pedicure last longer.
