Salon Step is a small, portable fold-up table that's been made to help users paint their toenails without having to bend over in an uncomfortable position. Each blue tabletop contains an angled footrest for one foot, two USB ports, three slots for nail polishes, and a small drawer for other pedicure supplies. The USB ports have been added so that you can use them to plug in the included light-up magnifying device and the drying fan that's also included with each table.
The cost of Salon Step is $29.99 plus $6.99 shipping for a total price of $36.98.
To get started with your Salon Step, fold it out on a flat surface in front of the chair or sofa that you're going to sit on while you paint your toenails.
If you'd like, you can plug the magnifying light and the drying fan into the table's USB ports before you start painting your nails. You can also set up some nail polish bottles in some or all of the round holes on the table's right-hand side that have been designed to hold them. Additionally, you may want to place other pedicure supplies you might need, such as a file or clippers, on the other side of the table or inside the pull-out drawer at the back.
Next, place one of your feet on the table's black footrest and begin painting your toenails. It doesn't matter which foot you start with first. As you paint, if you need to reach for a different bottle of nail polish or other supplies, you'll find that you can so do quickly if you've set them up beforehand.
When you're done working with the nails of one foot, let them dry for a few minutes (with the help of the fan or not), and then place that foot on the floor. Following that, place your other foot on the footrest and repeat the entire process.
After the toenails on both of your feet have been painted and have dried, remove all the accessories from your Salon Step, except perhaps the ones inside the drawer. If they're in there, they should be secure. Finally, fold up the device and store it away in a safe place, such as under your bed or in a closet.
If you have to paint your toenails while your feet are sitting flat, or while they're positioned at an awkward angle, you could end up feeling physically uncomfortable and make mistakes. You could even make a mess of your skin and the floor and pieces of furniture around you. However, when you use your Salon Step, you'll likely be able to complete an attractive painting job without getting nail polish all over surfaces that you don't want to paint. That's because the footrest on each Salon Step is angled in such a way that it will allow almost anyone to paint their nails quickly and efficiently, without experiencing great discomfort. The device will also help you keep your pedicure supplies organized so that you don't run the risk of knocking bottles over or having to hop across the room to retrieve a nail file.
Since the Salon Step isn't much more than a foot tall and has about the same width, it's highly portable. Even if you don't fold it up, you'll likely be able to move it from room to room in your home without experiencing problems. Plus, when it's folded up, it'll be almost as compact and flat as a tray that you'd eat your TV dinners off of. If you fold it up and put it in your trunk or backseat, you'll be able to freely transport it to almost any location outside your home, such as a friend's house.
At the back of your device's tabletop, closest to where the toes of each foot will go, you'll find two USB ports (one on each side). You'll be able to plug the magnifying light into one of these, to give yourself a brighter and larger view of your toes. The portable drying fan can be plugged into the other one if you're pressed for time and need to dry your toenails super-quickly. When you're not using the USB ports for these accessories, you may want to plug digital devices, such as your smartphone or tablet, into an available one.
You'll never have to plug the Salon Step into electricity in order to keep the USB-powered accessories functioning, as each one runs via four AA batteries. These aren't included with each step, so you'll have to obtain them (and any future replacements) yourself.
Aside from the standard version of this table-like device, there's a deluxe version that you might choose to obtain. The deluxe version is like the standard one, except that the footrest is anti-microbial and contains gel cushions for maximum comfort as you paint your toenails.
When you're using your Salon Step to paint your toenails, you'll be able to sit on almost any chair, regardless of whether that's a wooden chair, an easy chair, or a lawn chair outdoors. As long as the chair isn't much taller or shorter than a typical one, you should still be able to reach each foot comfortably.
If you want to paint someone else's toenails, such as a child's, you can do so while making use of the Salon Step. In fact, you may be able to do a better job than you otherwise would, since the step will keep the other person's toenails at a comfortable height for you to reach for. As they rest each foot on the device's footrest, you'll be able to make your strokes with nail polish from the top of the table or either side.
With each Salon Step, you'll also receive a compact bottle of tea tree soap. This soap has been made for use on the feet, but there's no reason you can't use it on your hands or other parts of your body (besides your face and genitals), too.
If you have trouble painting your nails at home, you might make frequent trips to a nail salon to have them painted by a professional. Even if you enjoy doing so, it could take up many hours in your week, especially when you account for your travel time and the time you spend in the salon's waiting room. As an alternative, once you obtain a Salon Step, you may find that you're able to paint your toenails nicely at home after all, and then make fewer trips to the salon (or none whatsoever).

Is the nail polish compartment able to lift out and move to the left side? Not everyone's right handed.
