The Perfect Pedicure—Sans Salon

Just because you're short on time doesn't mean your feet have to pay the price. Celebrity manicurist Jenna Hipp, of Orly—who has treated the tootsies of Fergie, Jessica Alba, Hilary Duff, Christina Ricci and Ashley Judd—recommends the following steps for getting a perfect do-it-yourself pedicure. First, remove all existing nail polish with a gentle nail polish remover, and use a glass file to gently shape the nails. Then, soak your feet for at least 10 minutes before using a scrub. Apply a rich moisturizer to the feet and calves. Then, use a cuticle-softening product and push them back—no cutting! Finally, wipe off any excess product with polish remover, and paint your nails with your favorite color.
