Nails

Do you have your nails done? Is this something important for you to do? The ladies at work go all the time having their nails and toes done.
I don't get it. I've had my nails done twice in my life and my toes, never.

  • I would get them done all the time if I could but I don't have the money for that. I have had them done once in my life and plan to get my toes done before I have my baby.

  • I agree, I can't justify the cost. Ya, they look nice but then you have go back for fill ins and it just seems like a. Never ending money...

  • I've had mine done lots, but lately I just do them myself. I like having fun colors on my toenails, and complementary colors on my finger nails. Also, the coats of polish seem to keep them from breaking. I guess I just feel more put together with my nails done.   :-)

  • Oh...I don't have to worry about 'fills' -- I never have tips glued on. I just take zinc 3xweek, and extra B vitamins daily. My own nails stay healthy -- no need to add to them.

  • I love getting pedicures, but these days I they are more of a treat than a necessity. I enjoy manicures, too, but as a nurse I wash my hands so often that it doesn't take long for them to chip so I usually do it myself.

  • My nails are very important to me because they don't turn grey like hair does.  They don't get fat and they don't sag or wrinkle.  They defy aging!


    I get mine done in the summer and I do them myself in the winter but they are always done!

  • My nails, no. I don't like fake nails on myself and I can do my own manicure for free. Pedicures, yes! I love them, they're super relaxing, and my feet look great afterwards.

  • Well, i think even u dont regularly get a pedicure, we all need one once in awhile to take off the dead skin all around the foot, and it definately feels good to get the massage and get your circulation going! I have had one this year, and it is also nice to wear sandals and know ur feet look decent!!

  • It's important to me that my nails and toes are done, but I do it myself. I'm picky and always ended up having to reshape my nails when I got home, so it's just a waste of money and time.
