Fab Feet: Get those toes ready for Summer!

While Summer is vastly approaching, your wardrobe, bodies and minds may be ready for it, but are your feet?

In the Winter many of us neglect our feet, not getting pedicures as often and sometimes not even throwing any polish on them due to that fact that they're covered up the majority of the time. And men: even you should be caring for those feet! Pedicures are your friend!

I know that the recession has taken a toll on many of the luxuries some of us were used to but I bet you can do an at home pedicure better than your local nail shop. Besides YOU know what YOU like best, right?

Sally Hansen has some amazing, bright, eye-catching colors for summer and best of all, they are a part of the Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color. This means you'll only have to apply one coat! When I first opened the bottle, I was shocked at the shape of the brush and it took some getting used to but by the time I was on the third toe, I mastered it. The color spreads on thick, so you dont have to continue applying and it's just a s bright as 2 or 3 coats! And even better it dries in 60 seconds! It's available in 24 shades and my fave are Blue Streak, Sonic Bloom and Lightening Creme.

A tip when using these bold colors: USE A BASE COAT....otherwise your nails may get stained, and who wants that?

While these colors are great, they won't look their best if you don't apply them to well manicured, moisturized feet. The scrubs, in any flavor from Bath & Body Works, Carol's Daughter and Sally Hansen work wonders for removing dead skin! I don't know about you but I love when my feet are soft and this is the best method to get them that way. The pumice stones scratch feet and damage skin, so a new thicker callous comes back to protect the feet. The scrubs are more gentle and aren't so harsh on them.
Carol's Daughter Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure in a Jar smells great and moisturizes like no other! Highly recommended!
The Footloose & Fancy Fizz Bubbly Foot Bath is amazing, as it soothes your tired feet and smells amazing!

And one of my favorite sets is the Salon Pedicure collection from Sally Hansen. Like I said, we probably all can't afford to go to the nail shop or the spa every week, so this will work wonders for your feet during those "in-between times."

The Mineral Foot Soak gets your feet ready for the Ultra Smoothing Foot Scrub which both moisturizes and removes dead skin leaving feet extremely soft. Finish it off with the hydrating Foot Creme, not too thick but enough to moisturize and leave feet felling baby smooth!
