The transition from spring to summer means transitioning your wardrobe from cardigans to crop tops, jeans to shorts, and sneakers to sandals. After hiding our feet all winter, our toes will finally be exposed to the light, meaning they'll need to undergo the royal treatment before sandal season hits its peak.
A ROYAL TREATMENT FOR YOUR FEET
Prep your toes for sandal season with Get The Look's 7-step royal treatment.
Start off by removing any remaining traces of nail polish with a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover.
Fill a large bucket or bowl with warm water, and add sea salt or essential oils for the ultimate royal treatment (your toes deserve it!). Soak your feet in the mixture for about 10 minutes to soften your skin and loosen up any traces of dirt that may be hiding underneath your toenails.
Using a pumice stone (or substitution), gently exfoliate your feet and heels to remove dead skin. Rinse your feet off and dry them with a towel.
Use nail clippers to trim your toe nails and polish the surface of your nails with a manicure block to give your nails a smooth and natural shine finish. If necessary, use a cuticle lotion and pusher to loosen up your cuticles, and push them back with care.
For especially smooth feet, opt for a moisturizing cream for dry skin and rub the formula into your feet. Before moving onto the next step, let the moisturizing cream penetrate into your skin.
Add the finishing touches to your royal treatment by applying a bright coloured polish on your nails. Start by applying a layer of base coat to protect your nails, then choose an adventurous spring shade and apply two coats on each nail. Wait several minutes for your pedicure to dry.
To finish off, apply a clear top coat to each of your nails to prolong its duration and provide extra shine!
You're now ready to put on sandals!
