APRIL FOOT'S DAY CONTEST

PLEASE SEE THE EDIT AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST


I know alot of you ladies neglect the feets. I too have a tendency to neglect my feet in the winter months myself. But really, why not go ahead and give some of the same treatment you are giving to your hands to your feet as well. You already have all your tools out doing your hands, why not spread the love downward to those poor, sad looking little toes?






Taking care of your feet at home is easy and you can save a bundle by not paying for salon pedicures. I like to get my toes done on occasion at the salon, because sometimes I just don't feel like doing it myself. For a step by step on giving yourself a pedicure, please refer to my earlier post here.


I found a couple of recipe's online for making your own cuticle oil, pedicure lotion and pedicure foot masks.


SUPER DUPER CUTICLE OIL
Maintain healthy nails and encourage growth by using this curicle oil on dry feet weekly.
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Vitamin E Oil
Store in a sealed container in a cool dry place.


BANANA FOOT LOTION
For heavy duty overnight moisturizing.
2 Banana's
1/4 C Lemon Juice
1/4 C Butter
Mix ingredients. Spread over feet, then cover feet with socks and go to sleep. Rinse the next morning.

AVOCADO MOISTURIZING PEDICURE FOOT MASK
This home spa foot mask is the bomb for heavy duty foot moisturizing.
1/2 Ripe Avocado
1 Tbl Sesame Oil
1 Tbl Plain Yogurt
Combine ingredients and blend until smooth. Massage onto tired toes and leave on for 7-10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

(All recipes found at FootCandy - Treats for Feet)




After I get my feet pampered, a great way to set off my freshly pedicured feet is to wear a cute toe ring. I found some really cute ones at FootCandy - Treats for Feet too! Below is some pics of the ones that really caught my eye. I don't believe any of the ones I picture below cost more than $10 each.







This is a bikini top, and probably one of my faves I saw.





They even sell some pretty expensive ones, like the one I'm showing below. This TOE ring is on SALE for $1,295.00!!! cough! cough! choke!







Another way to dress up your toes is to do a little nail art on them. I recently Konied (used the Konad) my toes, and they were totally cute! Even adding a few jewels or stickers can really set off that great pedicure :)
Steph, from Steph's Closet just did the cutest pedi on her toes by doing something so simple as dotting her nails with a nail art pen.







I really want you ladies to get your feets in order and get them nice and polished up! Stop ignoring your toes and give them a little of the love you lavish on your finger nails. It's spring now and summer is just right around the corner.

I'm sorry, but I am going to have to postpone this contest until a later date! I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
