Easy At-Home Pedicure Shortcuts
Make your feet sandal-ready in 2, 5, or 35 minutes flat.
If You Have 2 Minutes...
0:00 to 1:30: Buff
Use a buffing block to smooth each nail surface and remove yellow stains. Start with the gritty side, then switch to the smooth
side, which gives a high shine―not as shiny as polish, but close enough in a pinch. You can also use the gritty side to soften
skin at the tips of your toes, says John Gerardo, a nail technician at Spoiled A Day Spa, in Studio City, California.

1:30 to 2:00: Moisturize
When feet are hydrated and free from dry patches, they automatically look well-groomed. Massage a rich foot cream into your skin, paying close attention to the driest areas, including the backs of the heels and around the cuticles.
