Smooth Exfoliate:  Use your foot file to smooth away rough skin on the heels balls of the feet and outside of the pinkie toes.  Use the small brush to gently buff each foot.  Use the pumice stone to further eliminate any remaining rough spots.  Push the cuticles back with the orangewood/cuticle stick they will be nice and soft from soaking.  Apply the exfoliating scrub to your feet and rub them until they feel soft.  Dip your feet again for a rinse and then pat them dry again with a towel. Moisturize:  Now moisturize your feet and calves with a rich scented lotion.  Wash the lotion off your nails with soap and water to prep for polish and let them dry. Polish:  Separate your toes with the foam separator and apply one coat of base coat to fill in uneven areas two coats of colour allowing to dry in between and one clear top coat. Paint your nails carefully working from the bed of the nail to the tip with long even brush strokes.  Use a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to erase any mistakes.  Try to go barefoot now to avoid smearing.  Reapply the top coat every three days or so after your pedicure to keep the nails from chipping. Some top coats come with SPF in them to keep the colours from fading.
