Do you ever get pedicures? What about manicures? What about fake nails? Or do you paint your own nails?
I've never gotten a pedicure. I don't let anyone other than DH touch my feet. Big EW factor for me. I paint my own toenails. Usually year around because it's almost always warm enough to wear sandals.
I've never had a manicure either because I don't want fake nails or those nails painted. Then I feel like I'm overpaying for someone to neaten plan ol' nails which I can do on my own for free. I'm cheap like that.
pedicure, NO it grosses me out to have anyone touch them except DH as well. I paint my toenails only when it is warm out though they get neglected in the winter. I don't get manicures, but I have gotten fake gel nails. I really love the look of them, I am just too lazy to keep up with the maintenance of going every couple of weeks to get them redone. It takes a long time too. These are the only kind of fake nails I ever get.
I don't even get them that long. I hate the look of long fake nails.
ETA I can't wear nail polish on my hands, they look manish but for some reason gel nails look good.
I loooove pedicures but don't get them all that often due to $$ and time constraints. I'm not very good at doing them myself so they either get done by someone else or not at all. I haven't had a manicure in eons. I used to get fake nails in my teens and early 20s. It's what you do when you're from Jersey. Now I just keep them short and don't bother with polish.
ETA: When I say fake nails, I mean long, acrylic, air brushed in crazy colors, fake nails.
You need to find pictures Erin!
I do get pedicures/repolish usually every 2-3months. I never get manicures and never get fake nails. I always have my toes painted but rarely have my fingernails painted. I like to keep all of them short.
Funny you mention this because the other day I was bored and painted my hand nails.. Its been probably like 10 years! No joke, and the paint was from my dd.. It was purple and had grape scent infused in it but it started to peel like 10 minutes later, so I just peeled it off and my fingernails ended being stained pink!! LOL They are still pink and this was Saturday night!
I looooooove getting pedicures!! It's only warm here like 4-6 months of the year so I def take advantage of that; getting new polish like every two weeks... however; w my job being a tanning salon we are able to wear sandals through out the winter so once in awhile I will get a pedicure during that time and wear sandals for show...
I never get manicures, which is funny, cause you'd think ppl see my hands more often than my toes... However, I used to looooove super short fake nails, but hated how thick they were!! or that they had to be "fixed" every two weeks or so... they could get pricy. I don't like my nails painted cause they too look manish as I have like wide nails... so I always find that colours don't look 'cool' or cute like they do on the celebrities... I want to get fake nails again to be honest, butttttt I kinda feel like they would be waste cause I'm sure they'll get ruined between baby poop, baths, and dishes....
I like pedicures on occasion. I get the white tips though because I don't like colors on my toes. I havent' got a pedi in months though. I may go get one once I get too big to comfortably reach my feet. I HATE manicures/fake nails. I got my nails done for for my wedding only because I broke one of my natural nails real short 2 days before. I got gel nails put on and my fingers hurt for nearly a week. After about 2 weeks I spent nearly a day soaking them in acetone to get them off!! Never again! My natural nails are pretty, so I just leave them natural. They could use a little TLC now, makes me want to find a nail file. . .
I just paint my nails...I'd love to have a pedicure/mani...can't afford it...lol!
I love fake nails...lol, but they are too much $.
I dont do pedicures. Im insecure cuz i have ugly feet! i will occasionally get my nails done short with white tips but i havent done it in awhile. It can get expensive.
I love getting pedicures too, but I think they are a thing of the past for me. On Mother's Day I got a $75 pedicure and my toe ended up getting swollen and almost infected! I doused it in triple antibiotic and gave it peroxide baths every couple hours, and thank God it didn't get fully infected! That was the 2nd time it happened, so I am saying goodbye to nail salons.
I got pedicures about once per month before children and while pg with DS1, but never ever manicures. Totally not into that.
No to all of the above. I have never had a pedicure or manicure (also never had a facial or a massage or anything like that). For my year 12 formal I did have fake nails, but they were the ones you buy and stick on yourself, but my Mum had her nail technician apply them for me. I rarely wear nail polish now, I won't paint my finger nails because Ronin will often grab my fingers and chew and for my toenails I know he will grabbed the bottle and don't want him drinking it or spilling it.
I get a couple of pedicures every summer and change polish in between. My toes are always painted during sandal season, which here is really only from early May - late Sept.
I keep my fingernails short and unpainted. I just don't have time to keep them up and I hate chipped polish. I had acrylic nails a couple of times in my early 20's, for fun. However, the last time I had them, one finger nail, which really wasn't very long, got caught in my car door as I was slamming it shut, and ripped my real nail out of the nail bed and everything. :eek: Yes, it hurt, and I will never get them again. I'm cringing just typing this...
Jenny, that sounds awful!
Jenny---ouch!! Sounds very painful!
I love pedis, although I don't get them as much as I want to. Hmmm....maybe need to start doing that more. I've had fake nails once, for my wedding. I thought they were very pretty, just didn't look great when they came off. I also thought it was hard to keep them clean underneath where all the glue and everything makes that ridge. Oh well. My nails are usually short, and sometimes painted.
