    Soak Your Feet

    Fill a tub with hot water and allow your feet to soak for about ten minutes. By doing so, the water would soften tough calluses and remove dirt that might have built up. Also they can help soften your toe nails and cuticles, which is vital for when you are prepping to paint your toe nails.

    Cut And File Your Nails

    Use a pair of nail clippers to cut your toe nails down to a perfect size, just short enough to see a bit of white at the tips. After that, use a buffing pad to file down the ridges and rough edges on the top nails.

    Clean Up Your Skin

    Take the pumice stone to scrub down the calluses on the heel and ball of your foot. Once you are done, take a scrubbing brush and scrub your entire foot. And also, you can add a bit of soap when brushing between your toes and all over the bridge of your foot. Be sure to rinse off your feet with a bit of water after all the scrubbing.
