Superdrug Pedicure: A treat for my working mums feet! #cbias

Me and make-up, we are kind of like old friends that don’t see each other too often, but when we do, we get on really, really well; generally having a great time.

This is pretty much true of my feet too! We get on well, but I kind of ignore them. I walk on them, I kick with them, I stub my toes accidentally, but I don’t really pay too much attention to them. They are functional, and that’s about it.

However, I am turning 40 this year, and my feet are starting to whinge a bit. They get grumpy after a long day working, and chasing after the kids. They are, quite simply, a bit miffed.

So, I am treating them to a pedicure as requested by the Collective Bias social fabric community *rushes online to see what she needs* from Superdrug; because they deserve it. 40 years of holding me upright; not an easy task, particularly in my university days….

A quick check in my make-up drawer…well, you can see why its not really something I indulge in much – I haven’t really got a lot of it to indulge with – how far will a deodorant, a lipstick, some mascara, and a few pairs of ski goggles take me I ask you?

I know, the make-up draw is pathetic…!


And as for the pedicure set, its a tad dusty…..

Not been used in a while – have we?!?


However, I have researched my feet’s needs, and apparently, we need to:

  1. Soak
  2. Clip
  3. File
  4. Buff
  5. Push back (the cuticles of course)
  6. Exfoliate
  7. Brush
  8. Moisturise
  9. Paint.

Armed with this vital knowledge, my feet are ready to GO! And they took me rather well to the Superdrug shop to get the necessary products. Check out the Google Plus album to see how it went yourself.

My feet are go!


As I now have everything I need to give my feet a chillax, I start to file, moisturise, and then restrain myself from going downstairs and eating the Mint Vienetta that the lovely Peppermint smell after all my moisturising efforts make me think of.

I am not sure my feet know what hits them, and the kids’ cheetah was particularly confused by the filing – I was sure that we might need to take a sledgehammer to those heels, but after a bit of peppermint moisturiser, and the file from my trip to Superdrug, I was wrong! *Sledgehammer not included after all*

Cheetah looks on, in awe!

After the mositurising, the cuticle bashing, and the lovely peppermint smell, we were ready for the polish – and here we had to make sure we actually hit the nails – not something I am well known for.

However, we put three coats on, requiring much patience, and being a mum and taught me a lot about patience! Because the varnish I bought was a little subtle, the three coats seemed to look better than two, which is what I would normally have applied.

I suspect I was just trying to get my feet to look at glittery as I possibly could…!

And I think it looks rather funky…

Summer toes!


Personally for a set of 40-year peds, they don’t look too bad…now I just need a bit of that bronzing stuff I spotted on my shop, so they don’t look quite so washed out.

Disclosure: Marks out of ten please below :-) Perhaps not quite Tiger Feet – but the Cheetah was impressed anyway ;-)
