Don't hide your feet away. If you’re off on a holiday, it's time to ditch those skinny jeans and boots and reach for a skirt and some strappy shoes. Here is how to get perfectly pedicured feet from the comfort of your own home and get strappy-shoe-ready!
It's all about the prep:
Soft, beautiful feet make taking a good foot selfie much less daunting. You don't want any hard skin or less than perfect toenails ruining that shot. You don't have to run off to the nearest salon for an expensive pedicure.
You can get beautiful, smooth results at home by buffing those soles with Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals ™. It's a clever electronic device, with exfoliating micro-rollers, which you use on hard skin to make your feet soft and beautiful, all ready for summer.
Just gently roll the Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File across areas where there is a buildup of hard skin with a light to medium pressure, repeating regularly to avoid further build up. The device is intended for professional removal of hard skin at home.
Once you have gotten rid of any hard skin, give your feet some extra care. Treat tired, aching toes with a relaxing foot soak.
Just grab a bowl of warm water, sit back and chill! After five minutes, dry your feet thoroughly and then put on some moisturizer. If you’re looking to give your feet some extra attention, apply Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Daily Moisturizer Foot Cream which provides the feet with moisture for up to 24 hours.
Add some colour:
Before you take any pictures, refresh your nail polish. You don't want any eagle-eyed Instagrammer commenting on your chipped pedicure. Remove any old polish and spend some time painting your toenails to make your feet look ready for anything.
Coral lacquer always complements tanned glowing skin perfectly, or if you want to make your legs and feet look longer and more luscious, try a neutral shade of beige or shell pink – the neutral shade gives the illusion of longer, slimmer toes.
Get ready for your close up:
Now that you've prepped and preened those feet, it's time for their close-up. Grab your phone and experiment with different angles.
The best foot selfies are taken from above looking down at your feet, or try lying down on a sun lounger and prop your legs up to get a flattering 'shot from below' effect. Experiment with filters, tones and lighting before you upload so you’re ready to share your summer ready feet with everyone.
