Being able to do quick math calculations, without a calculator, is one of the joys of the boomer generation. If you were to sit down and do some quick calculations and come up with an amount of money you spent on pedicures alone, you might be amazed. The question that gets raised is, ”Is it worth it?” Well, probably not, even though they do feel good. With just a little know how and a steady hand with the polish, you too can put some money back in your pocket. Thirty dollars for a pedicure that doesn’t take 30 minutes! Outrageous! You shouldn’t begrudge anyone the right to make a living, but a dollar per minute puts a nail technician right up there with skilled trade’s people and that’s way above a teacher’s salary.

Probably if you have a really reliable salon, that’s well run and maintained and has no history of complaints, treating yourself once in a while makes some sense. But is it worth the possibility of contracting a nail fungus or suffering an injury? No, and you probably even agree. Remember, the difference between a toenail fungus and your new SUV—the toenail fungus lasts forever. Better to eliminate that unpleasant possibility and do your own, at home pedicure.

All you need is the following and you already have most of it:

  • A tub big enough for your two feet
  • Clippers
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Cotton
  • Emery board
  • Cuticle softener
  • Orange sticks ( available at all pharmacies)
  • Nail polish (if desired) base-coat and top-coat
  • Emollient rich lotion, not between the toes

Remember to trim nails straight across. Rounding them at the corners sets you up for ingrown toenails. The leg and foot massage is optional. You might be able to find a willing masseuse in the way of a spouse or significant other. Maybe you could work out some sort of a deal.
