Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, licensed nail technician, and today I'm going to talk to you about a salon pedicure versus a home pedicure. So I've got a few tools here that I'm going to talk about. First off I've got toe separators, cotton and I've got a nail brush and then I also have some Q-Tips. So when you go to the salon there is a lot of things that a salon professional will do to make sure that your pedicure looks absolutely perfect. So one of those things is the nail brush this is something that we would use, you would dip it in just a bit of nail polish remover and then go around each toe nail, if any polish has gotten on the skin to make it look absolutely flawless. If you don't have that and you're at home you can actually use something very simple, you can use a Q-Tip, dip that in a little bit of the nail polish remover and do the same thing, go around each toenail cleaning it up. Another thing that we use to make sure that nothing gets smudged and you know every toe nail looks just as perfect as when we first painted is a toe separator, they look like this or sometimes they come stuck together already. So it goes between the toes, holds them separate, so that you don't smudge while you're waiting for it to dry. If you don't have that at home you can actually take cotton, cotton or even rolled up tissue just go in between each toe and as you can see it separates them, okay keeping everything pedicure perfect. So just a couple things that you can do to make your home pedicure look just as good as if you went to a salon. So I hope this is helpful to you guys and I thank you for watching. My name is Joi, bye.
