2. Fill the tub or a plastic tub of water up to your ankles. Add bath salts or Epson salt to your water. Add about a quarter to half a cup. This will loosen up the hard calluses on the bottoms of your feet. Let soak for 15 to 20 minutes depending on how rough your feet are. (You could also add oils in the water for extra softness.)
3. Exfoliate your feet. My favorite way to exfoliate my feet is by using a pumice. My all time favorite is by Mr. Pumice. I got mine from Sally's Beauty Supply. This pumice works wonders, seriously. Make sure to really focus exfoliating the heels and balls of your feet- this is where it tends to be the roughest.

5. Trim and Shape your nails. Be careful not to trim your nails too short but also don't keep them too long (that can look kind of weird, either way.) I would say keep them a little shorter than the tips of your toes. Use a straight pair of nail clippers- the rounded clippers can leave your with an uneven and jagged nail.
6. Moisturize your feet. This is key to having pretty feet. After soaking, exfoliating, and clipping, your feet will be dry and be dying for moisture. Use a thick cream and let it soak into your feet. Your feet will feel so much better.
7. Finally, paint your toes. During the warmer seasons is when I like to experiment with different toe colors. Bust out a bright neon color- it's totally on trend for summer anyways, so why not? Not feeling that bold? Stick with a classic color like a rich red- it always looks so fresh on toes. One final thing, if you mess up painting your toes, go back with nail polish remover to clean up the edges. We didn't go through all this work to wreck it at the end!
