Do you get mani and pedi's? how often and how much do u pay?

I go every 3 weeks..especially for pedi's. Can't walk around with dracula feet lol
My pedicures are $17 but for both it's $25, spa pedicures are $30 i think...i usually just get the reg pedicure bc it's in my budget.

  • I do my own mani's, but I go to the salon for a pedi about every 4-5 weeks (used to be every other week, but my budget can't sustain that anymore ;-)) I like the spa pedi every once in a while and pay $30 (one of the ways I treat myself) - regular pedi's are $15.

  • I do my own at home. Sure it takes some money getting all the stuff you need to do them, but once you have it you can do them whenever you want and it's a heck of a lot cheaper!

  • What the difference between a spa pedi and a 'regular' one?

  • Well, you did ask... no, I don't like them (well, manicure at least- and I don't care for lotions or nail polishes) and don't see the point in spending money on it. Besides, I never really look at feet....to me they're for walking... up till recently I never know other people paid any attention. All feet look pretty much the same!

  • I'm with OP on this one! Ok, in the winter when my feet are constantly in socks or slippers ALWAYS..I do my own pedi's except maybe around holidays. In warm weather when it's time to get the flip-flops out ( rarely wear tennis shoes down here, too HOT)....I get pedicures once a month and pay for the leg massage and extra's when I do. In between during the month, I just maintain that pedi til next month.
    I have solar nail tips put on for a french mani once a month and have them touched up every 1.5-2 weeks.
    My husband loves for me to get my nails and toes done and loves to pay for it. He tells me....go treat yourself Honey. What a guy!!

  • I haven't had one in a long time my Sister treats me to one every once in a while manicures run about 35 and pedicures are about the same right now I can't afford to get them done so I do my nails at home when I have the stuff to do it. It is nice though to go and be pampered once in a while.
