    Before you begin the pedicure, you should remove any existing nail polish from your nails. Make sure there is no nail polish on any of your nails so you can properly clean and trim them using a nail cutter.

    Soak feet in warm water

    Add some warm water to a small tub and soak your feet in it for a good 15 minutes. Make sure the water is not too hot so that you don't burn your skin. Soaking your feet will soften the skin and make it easier to remove any dirt on them.

    Once you are done soaking your feet, use a cuticle pusher or an orange stick to push back the cuticles on your feet. You should also clean the nails with the help of the orange stick.
