Do something special for yourself today and give yourself a pedicure! Remove your old nail polish completely (make sure to get around the edges). Trim your toenails straight across with clean nail clippers, and file them the way you want them with an emery board. Soak your feet in warm water for 5-10 minutes, and then (if you like) push your cuticles back with an orangewood stick. Make sure to keep your toes separated when you apply your new polish, and use two coats followed by a clear topcoat. Make sure to let your nails dry completely before you put on shoes, socks, or stockings!
