Scrub your feet with a pumice stone or foot file while they are wet. A pumice stone is a light, porous volcanic rock often used to remove dead skin cells and calluses. You can also use a foot file to do this. To use, hold the tool up to your foot, and quickly move it back and forth. It is best to work in about 1 in (2.5 cm) areas at a time. Apply steady pressure, but be careful not to push too hard.[5]

All 3 options work great to soften your cuticles, so you can easily remove the dead skin. Apply the product where the toenail meets the nail bed. Then, massage each toe to distribute the product.[10]
“I love chatting with my clients, it’s one of my favorite parts of the job. But there’s a line of what you should and shouldn’t say. We’re not your therapist so don’t tell us all the messy details of your divorce or your last doctor’s checkup; just hold a pleasant and uplifting conversation.”—Heather Norton This is what your nail polish color says about your personality.

To achieve the look, each nail is first cleaned and shaped. Then a coat of black polish is applied, cured, and buffed. Next, top coat is applied and cured, before putting on a mirror powder.

Use 1-2 coats of nail polish to cover your nails. When your base coat dries, unscrew the applicator brush from your nail polish of choice, and apply the color from your cuticle to the end of your nail. Make 1-3 swipes to cover the nail. Apply a second coat after your first coat is dry if your nail color is still transparent. Your nails should dry in 2-3 minutes.[16]

Nail polish originated in China and dates back to 3000 BC.[1][2] Around 600 BC, during the Zhou dynasty, the royal house preferred the colors gold and silver.[1] However, red and black eventually replaced these metallic colors as royal favorites.[1] During the Ming dynasty, nail polish was often made from a mixture that included beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes, and gum arabic.[1][2]

Every woman knows how painful it is to accidentally smudge your eyeliner after finally perfecting your cat eye, spill droplets of coffee on a light t-shirt, and worst of them all, walk around with chipped nail polish. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars each month on gel manicures to avoid chipped nails but as a result, my love affair with gel manicures left me with cracked, fragile nails.
Matte polish is like regular polish, but has a purposely dull finish rather than a shine. It can be purchased as a regular base coat in ranges of different colors. Matte nail polish can also be found in a top coat. Matte top coat is most useful for painting over any dry base color, giving it a different appearance. The matte top coat polish will dull the shine from a regular base coat polish. Matte polish has become very popular through the years, particularly since it can be used in nail art applications, where designs can be created on the nail using the contrast of both shiny and matte surfaces.

You might think bare toenails are ugly, but nails need to breathe and have moisture, and polish acts as a barrier. So skip the nail polish for a week or longer each month and enjoy the low-maintenance look. It's a good idea to remove your nail polish if you can't fix it as soon as it chips. Your toenails are vulnerable to damage in the spots where polish is missing. If by some miracle your polish lasts two weeks, go ahead and change it anyway.
Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti, pioneers of all things opulent, popularized the manicure by rubbing their hands in rich oils and staining their nails using henna. They believed that this signified their wealth and status. The bolder the color, the more power you had. Cleopatra preferred a blood red hue, while Nefertiti opted for ruby. We're going to go ahead and call red the official shade of sovereignty la pyramids.
