How to DIY a Mani-Pedi for Under $20?

Rhianna's Studio Spa Mani-Pedi under $20
Hello Loves!
   I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Did you watch Orange is the New Black? It's back on Netfllix in case you weren't aware! I actually completed the series over the weekend. It had an interesting ending and I have to say I laughed because it was so shocking. I was caught off guard. Anyways today's post is about my trip to Dollar Tree and Sally Beauty Supply for products to do a manicure and a pedicure. 


I was able to get all the products for under $20! I actually spent about $15 bucks. $5 at Sally and the rest at the Dollar Tree!

Below are the items from Dollar Tree...
Rhianna's Studio - spa mani-pedi under $20
1. Pink Water Bottle - $1 
2. Bath Soak - $1
3. 4 Way Pedicure Stick - $1
4. 3 pack of small bottles (alcohol and manicure scrub) - $1
5. Apricot Scrub - $1
6. Manicure brush - $1
7. Caddy - $1
8. Moisturizing Gloves - $1/pair
9. Moisturizing Socks - $1/pair
There are other items that are needed to complete the pedicure and manicure like the cuticle stick (orange stick), nail clippers, finger nail files. I did not need to purchase these items as I have them at home already. However, Dollar Tree sells them in a pack for a $1 and it includes the toe spacers! Also if you need alcohol they sell that for $1 there as well! So even if you needed to purchase these items you can still get the full pedicure and manicure products for under $20 it would be like $17 to $18 depending on taxes and the price you pay for the foot and hand treatments from Sally. But still a good deal right? 

Now if you do not have a foot bath, you can always use your bath tub or if you have a large round bucket, or storage container (without holes in bottom) or you may be able to find a tub for a dollar at Dollar Tree then you will be at $18 or $19 for the mani-pedi but still under $20!

I take similar steps for my manicure also. Here I use the small manicure double sided brush to clean my hands and finger nails.  I use a glass bowl that I got a while back from Dollar Tree for my manicures. 
Step 1: Add Water and Bath Soak to glass bowl

Step 2: Soak hands for 15 minutes

Step 3: Scrub nails and hands with manicure brush

Step 4: Remove nail polish and spray with water
