How often do you paint your toes or get a pedicure?

I prefer to do my own toes because it seems like they always do something I don't like at the salons. I like the way I do my own toes better than any "professional" pedi I have had. lol I usually do them every two weeks, depending on how long the polish lasts or if I mess them up somehow.

  • During the summer I change my polish once a week to keep it looking fresh and try different colors. It also gives me a chance to give myself a pedicure, since my feet are more exposed and tend to get rougher in the summer.

    I bought a few of those stick-on nail decals and rhinestones from the grocery store, and people are constantly asking me where I get my feet done. It's a small way to pamper myself without breaking the budget! lol

  • I like to get a pedi because I do not have the magic touch when it comes to painting my toe nails and I usually have it done every four months.

  • My feet are too ticklish. I can't stand for anyone to touch them, so my answer is. . . never. :-(

  • Every week. Like once. I read somewhere to make your nailpolish last longer is to put a coat of white vinegar over your paint when its dry.

  • I get a pedi almost every time I get my nails done - every 3 weeks or so. I've never been able to make my toenails look like the pros do, and I'm in barefeet/flipflops all summer. I get lots of compliments on my feet :) In the winter, I'll get them done about every other time because they look good longer in the winter.

  • I give myself a pedicure every 2 weeks and my toes look just as good as the pro. When I paint my toes I take my time painting them and If I mess up I just take a qtip and some nail polish revomer and go over where I messed up and after I use a clear coat based and my polish never chipps. It last until I need to do my feet again.
