And This Is Why I Call Myself SFB....


I'm asked all the time "how did you chose the name Sweet Feet Boutique?" The story isn't that interesting, really it's not even that clever...I just love feet. I love baby feet, other people's feet (within reason), and my own feet!


Yesterday I was lucky enough to squeeze in a pedicure while the girls took their afternoon nap. I thought I would share how I like to treat my feet right with all of you ~


Step 1: Make coffee


Step 2: Clean (who wants to touch dirty feet??) and soak

Step 3: Get out the goods, lotion, cuticle treatment, clippers, files, buffer (that's my favorite), polish remover to fix mistakes, and essential to a good pedicure is the toe separator.

Step 4: Drink some coffee


Step 5: Polish, not too thick but don't get streaky. It's best to use new nail polish, so I like to buy the cheap ones and toss them after a couple of months.


Step 6: Take a cotton ball and wrap a little bit around an Orange Glo Stick, use this to wipe away the little bits of extra polish that might have happened off the nail.


Step 7: Drink a bit more coffee while you let the coats of polish dry (amount of coats may vary).


Step 8: Rinse your coffee cup, I'm sure it's empty by now.


Step 9: Apply a GOOD top coat, this helps the polish last longer and look nice and shimmery.


Step 10: Sit back and read (or have another cup of coffee) while you let your toes dry!

Wishing you lots of chances to take care of those "Sweet Feet!"

And what an unusual day to actually sit and look through a magazine while my feet soak in warm bubbling water....even if I did have to do my own toes. :o)

Amelia!! Your post inspired me and I went for a much needed pedicure last week. I also splurged for a facial (my first ever!!) and it was Heaven.

I'm so happy to see that you pamper yourself, it's so important and something I need to do more of. Thanks for reminding me.

XO!
