As I've mentioned before, you can't make this stuff up!
"Yesterday, in the reception area of the salon, he grabbed a pair of toenail clippers, the big professional kind that look like small garden shears, and sat struggling to cut his fingernails with them. When he was done and his fingernail parings lay scattered all over the floor he took off his loafers and began trimming his toenails. A client walked in and he smiled and said hello pleasantly and went back to straining to clip a particularly recalcitrant nail. Oblivious." - from Confessions of a Bikini Waxer

Taking care of your feet is as important as brushing your teeth. Don't ignore them. A pedicure can be quick and easy or slow and relaxing. You set the tone.
- Begin by removing any polish from your toenails.
- Next, soak your feet in in a basin of warm water with epsom salts or an essential oil for at least 5 minutes.
- Dry your feet and massage them by walking your thumbs up and down the soles. Don't forget your toes!
- Clip toenails to just below the tip of your toes. We recommend using the Artemis Woman Nail Catcher to avoid nail clippings from flying around.
- Using an emery board, file any rough edges and round off the nails at the corners to prevent the nail from growing in.
- Slough off dead, dry skin and remove hard calluses with the Artemis Woman Heel Smoother. It is quick, safe and easy to use. Avoid razors or graters that can cut or over-exfoliate your feet.
- Now moisturize and protect that newly-revealed skin with an all-natural lotion.
- Your feet are now ready for buffing or polish -- as always, your choice! Enjoy!
