Hi! This is Susan from Treat Nail Lounge in Santa Barbara and we're going to do a pedicure right now. First, what you'd want to do is you want to clip the nail straight across. Then what we're going to do next is file and you want to file straight across and round off the corners so you won't have any sharp edges. Then what you might want to do is if you had a cuticle pusher or an orange wood stick, you might want to push the cuticle back and you're going to get ready now for your base coat which is applied first. And after that you're going to be ready for your polish and you want to do two coats because one coat will chip, two coats is longer wearing. Okay then after your second coat, you will be ready for your base, top coat and this is what seals your polish, keeps it on longer and makes it extra shiny. And there you have it, your regular pedicure.
