How to Skip the Salon, Shelly Banjo features Home Salon Kits in the Wall Street Journal

Recently in the Wall Street Journal Shelly Banjo shared a fun article about how to skip the nail salon. The article shared a few of the latest manicure and pedicure home kits you can buy that are helpful when you are in need of clean tidy feet without the salon price tag.

Any aspiring shoe model or body part model, or hand model, might like this info-- especially since pedicures and manicures are essential.

The latest manicure and pedicure home kits that were suggested are:

Avon SpaFiner Manicure and Pedicure Center
Price: $20
(-Although-The instructions might be a little hard to follow and the hand held nail buffer might not get the job salon perfect,- the nail dryer element might just be worth it all together.)

Earth Therapeutics Pedicure Salon Professional Pedicure Set
Price: 19.99
(**the battery -operated buffer might be too gentle to remove all your calluses and dead skin if you have rough feet, and keep in mind it is a home kit and it is only $20 so if pieces of the sponge come off don't give up on the home kits because a pedicure can last 2 weeks if you take care of it and touch it up.)

I think these home kits are a good thing to touch up your nails, or to clean them even before the salon, or also if you have a last minute shoe modeling casting or hand modeling casting or you have a photo shoot and you don't have time to go to the salon.

If you are like me then at the end of the day you might want to try another option called: HoMedics Pedicure Spa Salon Footbath, mmmm a footbath sounds good everynight!
Available at:
It is $49.99

For a nice cheap trick at the end of the day I still love using my St. Ives scrub on my feet! And soaking them in lotion at night before I put on my socks! Ooh yes!
