    I usually go for a pedicure at the beginning of summer and that’s about it!

    I generally go for a pedicure every 3 weeks once the weather is nice enough to allow open toe shoes or sandals.  I’m not a huge fan of manicures since they chip so quickly,but I’ve found the shellac manicures tend to last about 3 weeks. I’d only do that on a special occasion though.

    @S2013:  I usually go less than once a year.

    I never have great experiences. My feet are super ticklish and I usually end up coming back with some sort of cut/scrape (I guess my skin is just too delicate??). I also find that the polish takes FOREVER to dry and it’s a huge pain… especially in the winter… I can’t just go back home in flip flops.

    I have a system where I can do my feet and hands at the same time and they usually end up looking pretty good… less dry time etc. than at the salon. I usually do my own pedis every 2-3 weeks for the entire year so I am quite on top of things.

    I usually do a mani/pedi every 2 weeks like clockwork. I also still get my pedicure every 2 weeks over the winter too, because I have a thing where I can’t just get my hands or my feet done…have to have both at the same time. Sometimes over the summer, if I’ve gone to the beach a lot my toes get trashed and I may go after 10-12 days  instead of every 2 weeks. It’s usually a Friday afternoon detoxing from my workweek activity…I love it 🙂

    During sandal season, about May-September, I get a pedicure once or twice a month, as needed. I just did an at-home pedicure since I didn’t feel like shelling out the money for a pedi now that I’m starting to wear closed toe shoes more often.

    I never get manicures, they don’t last long enough! I do want to start looking for places that do good gel/shellac though, because I’ll want a gel mani for the wedding and don’t want the wedding mani to be the first time I try it.

    I am addicted to the gel polish. I love that it stays on for weeks, I don’t have to worry about chipping, and I’m lazy as heck when it comes to my nails. The hour it takes to get them done is well worth it.

    Every week like clockwork for a mani and massage (usually just 15 minute chair massage) and maybe twice a year for the pedi. I’m SO ticklish that it’s just miserable.

    I go about every 3 weeks. It’s the cheapest way to make myself feel shiny and new 🙂

    Twice a month minimum…everything starts to fade fast on me…& my sweetie loves the pedis too!
