  • Question of the Day 5/21/20

    Good Thursday, pixies!

    Do you enjoy manicures and/or pedicures?

    I don’t spend money on either one, although I think getting a pedicure is a lovely indulgence. I had one once, and I will admit that I really enjoyed it. I won’t do acrylic nails, and I just think a manicure is not worth my time and money.

    I love my manicures and pedicures! I get them every other week as a treat to myself while sitting in the massage chair.
    That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

      I have never had either of the services. I hate my feet touched so never would even try getting a pedicure. And I agree, I think a manicure is not worth my time or money.

          I've never had either, but I think manicured nails look great. I just haven't been able to justify the cost.

            Ohmygosh I HATE pedicures! I’ve had a few since my back surgery and they are just awful I was so glad when I could finally manage to reach my own feet.

            i did acrylics for years in my 20s-30s, but it became an indulgence I couldn’t afford, so have done my own nails since. I used nail polish strips for awhile, but found my nails are happiest with a good polish, which, with 4 DDs, I mastered long ago.

              I had acrylics for years. I was wearing glue on nails for quite a while. In December I took them off and was able to let them grow out. I wouldn’t mind a manicure to get them looking better. Big no on pedicures... I don’t like others touching my feet. I even turned down a job working with a podiatrist. I couldn’t handle dealing with feet all day long...😂😂

                I have never had either. I do my own toenails in the summer. Other than that I don’t bother with either the rest of the year.

                  I've had them done a couple of times, but I'm not a fan. Now massages and facials... that's another story.

                    Forget a manicure.... and a pedicure sounds relaxing, but I too don't let people touch my feet, except my Foot Doctor. But yeah my sister says I should get a pedicure, but I would probably be laughing the whole time....

                        Until this pandemic/lockdown, I have gotten a manicure every other week for years. I have never done acrylics, but I love the shellac polishes that dry very quickly and hold up well for two weeks. In the summer, I get a pedicure usually in April and then just get a polish change once every other month after that. My nail tech will be seeing me a week from today, and I am so ready as my fingernails are a mess. She isn't doing pedicures/polish changes right now, so I'm not sure when I'll get one of those done again.

                          I love manicures! I got one every other week for over 15 years. Then about 6-7 years ago the nail tech I went to for all those years changed careers and wasn't doing nails anymore. I tried a few other techs but never "clicked" with one, so I haven't gotten a manicure in several years other than a few special occasions. I used to get a few pedicures during the summer months but my feet are very ticklish so it's not very relaxing for me but I love the way my feet look and feel when it's finished. I've only gotten pedicures from the nail tech I went to for all those years because she knew how ticklish I am and she handled my feet with a gentle firmness so that I wasn't jumping all over the place during the pedicure.

                            I have never had a manicure or pedicure. I don't see myself ever getting either.
