As chilly weather descends upon Chicago, we extend a Wellness Wednesday tip from NoMI Spa. Today, we discuss the perfect pedicure for the upcoming wintry months!
At NoMI Spa, we recognize that nail color is an essential element of a beautiful pedicure. Pedicure polish can certainly go through phases, from dark cherry, to bright coral, to candy-colored purple and glitter, just to name just a few. Many individuals will go from pedicure to pedicure, without stopping to let their toes go natural between polishes. However, the most nourished feet are smooth, soft, well-moisturized- and polish free! Winter is an excellent time to rejuvenate and refresh to regain healthy and beautiful feet.
For buffing to be as head-turning as fire engine-red toes, your feet need to look their best. Here are some tips:
- Get in the habit of scrubbing your soles and heels every time you bathe and follow with body oil or moisturizer all over your feet (be sure to massage into your cuticles to keep them soft). At night, go for a thicker moisturizer.
- Keep your feet protected from the sun during the day so they stay wrinkle-free in the future.
- To top it off: buff. Look for a buffing block that is labeled with numbers or instructions on each side. You should start buffing (up and down or in circular motions) with the coarsest side of the buffing block and work your way to the finest side for the final buff.
- Use the soft ends of the buffing block to brush away debris as you go.Done correctly, buffing will rid your nails of ridges and create a natural shine that looks almost like clear polish.
Buff is beautiful this holiday season!
