The Perfect At-Home Summer Pedicure

by | Jun 28, 2014 | Love Others, recipes, This Lefe Family

This is such great treat for your feet, I’m stealing it from my Live Laugh Linger blog. Why not pamper your tootsies this weekend with this easy, at-home pedicure?! Enjoy!

The perfect at home summer pedicure!

Take a moment to glance down at your feet.

Summer is a perfect time to show off those tootsies! However, dry, dead skin and cracked heels aren’t so wonderful to show, are they?

If your feet are screaming that it’s time for a fresh pedicure, but you don’t care to pay the price or don’t like having someone else touch your feet, here’s a great at-home pedicure recipe!

It softens your skin and removes the dead, dry stuff. It also helps remove any yellowish stains on toenails from past nail polish.

And what I like the most?? It makes your feet feel “tingly” afterwards!

A perfect summer at-home pedicure!

At-Home Pedicure Recipe

What you’ll need:

  •  Basin or bowl
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups original Listerine or a generic brand (It’s an amber color. I’ve used the citrus one too. Stay away from purple or blue, as it can stain your skin and nails.)
  • 1/2 cup warm water (I like my water hot.)
  • Nail polish remover if needed
  • Towel
  • Pumice stone or brush
  • Nail polish, base coat, top coat, foot lotion (optional)


  • Remove any nail polish.
  • Pour and mix vinegar, Listerine and water into a basin or bowl.
  • Let your feet soak in solution for 15-20 minutes only. Relax.
  • Towel dry feet well. You’ll notice the dead skin coming off easily.
  • Use a pumice stone or scrub with towel on the rough spots.


  • Apply a base coat to toenails.
  • Apply color.
  • Apply top coat.
  • Apply lotion.

A perfect summer pedicure!
