Best at-home pedi kits
It's starting to feel a lot like peak summer and with the mercury knocking 25 degrees on a regular basis, it means it's also time to expose The Feet. Worried yours are more like hooves? Worry no more.
Margaret Dabbs has secured her place as the leader of the pack when it comes to serious podiatry-level pedicures with a luxe feel. If you don’t live near one of her clinics, or still feel more comfortable keeping your distance, this is the next best thing. Consider it baby-soft feet in a bag.

Now, I don’t really know what to say about Footner Exfoliating Socks apart that my friend in the beauty business swears by them. But it doesn’t take away from the fact that once you’ve worn the socks for 60 minutes, your feet then shed all their dead skin over the next 7-10 days. Yes, it sounds vile but also strangely addictive. And, most importantly, highly effective. But don’t say we didn’t warn you.

O.P.I know a thing or two about nails so you could do a lot worse than have this nestled into your bathroom cabinet. Containing O.P.I ProSpa’s Nail & Cuticle Oil, Protective Nail & Cuticle Cream and one of those amazing glass files, it’s marketed at the professionals but what’s the harm in slathering your feet with salon-level products? None at all.
