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.
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 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.
