How to Feel Like You’re at a Spa With a DIY Home Pedicure

Are you overdo for a pedicure? Me too. Currently, that’s due to the coronavirus pandemic, but even under ordinary circumstances, it can sometimes be hard to find time to go to a spa. Sure, I could just paint my toenails at home, but that’s just not the same as going to a spa.

If you’ve been under Safer at Home orders for several weeks now, you might be looking for something fun, relaxing and different to do right about now. Creating a spa in your own home doesn’t take that long to do. It’s also a great way to relax, destress and feel pampered. Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Even under ordinary circumstances, creating a spa experience at home can save time and money, but you’ll still feel oh so pampered. 

If you have the time, you can do a few extras to make your home as similar to a spa experience as possible. For example, you could make your own bath salts and take some extra time to set up the perfect spa experience; however, it doesn’t have to take a lot of time or a lot of supplies for an at-home pedicure.

Watch the video below to see how easy it can be to transform a comfy chair in your home into an at-home spa. 


Don’t feel discouraged if you don’t have all the items mentioned in the video. You don’t need to run to a store to buy things you don’t have, especially during a pandemic when a pedicure is hardly essential. Simply use items you already have in your home. No essential oils? A scented candle definitely works. No bath salts? Just skip it. No magazines? Read your favorite ebook. No plastic tub to soak your feet? Use a large bowl.

Are you ready to sit back, relax and pamper yourself? If you’re quarantined with a loved one like a significant other, this at-home spa idea would be a great gift for a birthday or Mother’s Day. Can you picture your husband filing your toenails?

Even when spas reopen, we might stick to an at-home pedicure. One comment on this video reads, “Very very nice tutorial👍🏼 Your video has inspired me to do my own pedicures at home I like your whole set up it makes it “spa like” the added bonus is knowing that your products are exclusive to you. I have viewed several horror stories by nail techs on YouTube that had previously worked in salons, some very high-end where the hygiene practice was sub par, which has made me shy away from ever going to any salon for mani-pedis.”

Yikes, right? Are you going to try an at-home pedicure?
