Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, Licensed Nail Technician, and I'm going to show you all today how to do a pedicure at home. So, the basics that you're going to need for this are a nail clipper, a nail file, a buffer and a quick dry top coat. Okay. So, first of all, you want to make sure that your toenails are clipped down evenly and of course you're going to do that with your nail clipper here. Follow up with your filing and when you're filing, you want to make sure that you are making all of the toenails even. That's one thing that's going to make your home pedicure look as good as if you went to a salon. So, you're going to file. So, the next step is you want to use your buffer and this is actually a really important step because you want to make sure that the surface of the toenails are very very smooth and this is going to ensure that your polish goes on very nicely and has that salon finish. Okay. So, just buffing out until everything looks nice and smooth. Okay. And you will just gently wipe here, wipe the dust off 'cause the dust will actually cause your polish to not stick as well. You use your base coat, your two coats of color and then, very very important is your fast dry top coat. Top coat is going to make sure that you seal in the pedicure, seal in all your hard work and it's going to make sure that it shines; again, making it look very very professional but done at home. So, go out and try this; have fun with it. Thank you all for watching, and I'm Joi. Bye.
