The Prettiest At-Home Pedicure

It's the first beach weekend of the summer and you're itching to show off your new sandals. But between wrapping up work and packing, you know you're not going to have time to get a salon pedicure. Never fear! Here's how to do a speedy home pedicure that will look just as good.

1) Exfoliate
In the shower, let your hair conditioner soak for an extra minute while you slough your feet with a foot scrub and rub your heels and any calluses with a pumice stone.

2) Moisturize
When you step out of the shower, slather your feet in a hydrating lotion.

3) Prep
Swipe each nail with a nonacetone polish remover pad and separate the toes with foam toe separators.

4) Polish
Paint a base coat on your nails from bed to tip, then follow with two coats of polish-see our picks for spring and summer here-and a fast drying top coat, waiting two minutes between each layer. And you're ready to roll!
