How can I speed up my pedicures?

Q.

How can I speed up my pedicures? I give full leg massages and apply polish at the end.

A.

An easy way to make your pedicures more efficient is to put base coat on all five toenails on one foot, and allow them to dry while you massage the other leg. Then when the base coat is dry, massage that leg, and when finished apply color and go back to massaging the other leg (which now has dry base coat ready for polish).
Explain to the client you are going to polish in between the massages so that each layer gets a chance to dry and reduce the chances of smudging.
