What Tools Do You Need For A Pedicure?

What Tools Do You Need For A Pedicure?


If you are thinking about giving yourself a pedicure, but are not sure what tools you need, you have turned to the right place.  For a thorough pedicure there are several tools you will need to complete your mission:


*Warm Water

*Foot Salt


*Cotton balls

*Nail Polish Remover

*Nail Clipper

*Nail File

*Nail Brush

*Base Coat

*Top Coat


The first thing you should do is soak you feet in a tub of warm water.  You can add Epsom salt or foot salt to soothe your feet.   You should have a towel handy to dry your feet.  You should also have cotton balls and nailpolish remover to take off the old nailpolish.  Next you will use a nail clipper and file to trim and shape your nails.  You should also use a nailbrush to clean your feet and nails before you start to apply any polish.  Make sure to use a top coat and bottom coat with your polish to ensure that it lasts as long as possible.  These are the basic steps to a pedicure.  There are other steps you can add if you want to get fancy, but this is a great starting point!

Cheap Pedicure Equipment: Where to Look

Finding affordable pedicure equipment is an excellent way to keep overhead costs low in these tough economic times. But where should you look for the best prices on equipment for your nail salon?

The essentials that any nail salon offering pedicures needs include pedicure chairs (with or without attached foot baths), technician stools, storage cabinets, and chairs or sofas for the reception area. Whether you’re in need of just one piece or you’re looking to completely revamp your salon from top to bottom, here are a few ways to save money without sacrificing style and quality:

Shop online. There are a number of discounts to be found on the Internet. Just make sure that you buy from a reputable seller, and always examine the return and exchange policy ahead of time. When shopping online, it’s important to know that you’ll have the option of sending back a piece that is broken or does not quite meet your expectations.
Consider used equipment. Believe it or not, there are some high quality options available, many of them barely used. If you’re concerned about sanitation, the equipment can be thoroughly disinfected before being put into use at your salon.
Buy direct from manufacturers. If you cut out the middleman – the nail supply store – you could stand to save some serious cash. Look manufacturer direct offers, and if you need several pieces, ask if you can receive a lower cost pet item when you but in bulk.

Luxury Pedicure Equipment

Providing your clientele with a sense of luxury is one almost guaranteed way to get them to come back to your nail salon time and time again.   The kinds of pedicure equipment that you use, therefore, makes a major difference in repeat business.  Many pedicure chairs have automatic massages available now and many customers will not frequent a salon that doesn’t offer that kind of amenity.  With this in mind, why not offer even more to your customers?  When in a recession, the first budget cuts that savvy people make are to their luxury budgets – and pedicures are generally considered to be a luxury.  But one thing that remains is that people like to treat themselves now and again.  By having the right pedicure equipment, you can set yourself apart from the competition.  Offer free upgrades like a rose petal soak.  You can create an arrangement with a local florist for their daily petal clippings.  Perhaps offer a trade – rose petals for complimentary monthly pedicure.  Start to think outside of the box so that you can make your pedicure salon the place that people will want to work into their budget.  Pedicures are one of the simple pleasures in life and making the experience more pleasurable at your salon will go along way towards generating repeat business.
