The Benefits of a DIY Pedicure

Giving yourself a pedicure may seem like a bit of work, but if you take the time to enjoy it and think of it as pampering yourself, you'll not only be saving money, but also protecting yourself against any of the possible ickies that can sometimes be caught at nail salons. If proper sanitation procedures aren't followed there, you can end up with bacterial or fungal infections.

It's also a good idea to give yourself a "buff-only" pedicure every few times to let your nails breathe. Fungus grows in dark places, and constantly having your nails polished means they can't breathe and heal. A week of bare nails can help keep your toes healthy and even prettier for the next time you polish!
