Happy Feet

If you're like me not only do you not always have the time, but perhaps not always the budget for weekly pedicures. I often times have the task of DIY pedi's in between my times to the salon. I have an arsenal of products I like to use and here are some good ones I found at
Sephora Collection Professional Pedicure/Manicure Kit

Bliss Foot Patrol

Sephora by OPI Nail Treatment - Hydrator
Sephora by OPI polishes

Sephora by OPI Nail colour Drying Drops

Also a cool trick I learned is to take hot water in a bowl or basin big enough to fit one of your feet...add several squirts of lotion. I like Lubriderm.

Then add a few tablespoons of Olive Oil.

This mixture makes your feet super soft! I soak each for 5 minutes at a time, scrubbing one while the other soaks...and Voila! Happy Feet!! :)


  1. You are a goddess for this post, Jamie! Now that spring/summer has arrived, I have been wearing wedge sandals ALL the time, and I want my feet to look gorgeous. Of course, I don't have time (or extra cash) to get pedicures at a salon; so I've been trying to give them to myself at home. I will definitely be using these tips. Behold the power of Olive Oil! :)

  2. Great post! I have been doing my own mani and pedi's for a few months now. I need to try the Sephora foot scrub. I am excited because I'm actually getting better and better at it, but I do love the occasional pampering at the salon. Lubriderm lotion is my favorite too!

    Great post.

  3. oh yes! i've heard of the olive oil/lotion trick. i moisturize every day (i am a lotion addict) but have not tried mixing in the olive oil--will have to do this.

    i thought you already followed me too! i definitely follow you, luv.

    thanks for your suggestions in my giveaway entry. user reviews would be fun!

  4. Good post, Jamie!:D Nothing beats clean and soft feet.:D

    Happy Wednesday!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  5. lubriderm and olive oil, huh? i'll have to give it a try :) great tips!

  6. I've never heard of that trick!! (lotion in the water and then some oil) NICE! I'm gonna try it!

  7. OK f'realzzzz, the OPI/Sephora drops is the most miraculous nail product on the market! AMAZING post!


  8. I do love the idea of this! But I think my problem is I need someone to cut my cuticles - I just can't do it myself! xxSAS
