The One Thing Pedicurists Want You To Know

When you sink into the pedicure chair, the goal is to sit back and relax. But one thing could be standing in the way of a total moment of zen: Those nagging self-conscious fears that your feet are too unsightly, your nails too long. Those thoughts couldn’t be further from your nail technician’s mind. Here’s what they’re really thinking about your feet, though…

Don’t: Bring Heels
“Nail polish takes hours to really harden, so trying to stuff your toes into a pointed heel or tight boot and then scoot out the door is not going to work. To get home smudge-free, your best bet is to bring flip flops in the summer or Ugg boots in the winter.” — Donna Perillo, founder, Sweet Lily Natural Nail Spa & Boutique, New York City

Don’t: Take Matters Into Your Own Hands
“Sometimes, it’s harder to clean up a messy DIY effort — especially gel removal! — than to just do the whole thing ourselves. And if you trim your own nails too short or strangely shaped, many times we can’t actually fix it.” — Alexandra Calle, pedicurist, Eve Salon, New York City

Don’t: Shave Calluses
“Even though cutting calluses with a razor blade has been prohibited by the Department of State (New York) Division of Licensing for quite some time, customers still request that we use a blade. One might think it is the ideal way to reduce callouses, but it can cause bleeding, and the areas where the razor is used tends to crack and dry out your sole more than a gentle foot file.” — Jin Soon Choi, founder, Jin Soon Hand & Foot Spa, New York City.

Don’t: Apologize for Your Feet
“I wish clients would stop saying they have the worst feet ever and that they feel badly about having us work on them. And it can come off as disrespectful to the pedicurist that you feel badly about her job. We have seen many feet — yours are probably far from awful!” — Frances Liang, lead manicurist, tenoverten, New York City
