@JennyC, I know right?! My grown-up check list includes getting a pedicure, wearing “real clothes” to work, and cooking meals with side dishes. I’m trying!! Haha 🙂
I’m also a bit confused about the milk advice! As far as I know, mani’s/pedi’s aren’t for the health of your nails… they’re to make them smooth and pretty-colored. But what does a pedi-virgin know anyways, right? 😛
Glad to hear not everyone goes regularly. We’ll see how much I love it and how often I’m willing to shell out the $!

I do my own nails. To me it is not something that I want to spend money on. I can keep my own nails looking nice. They don’t look model perfect, but they still look nice.

I would go every week if I could! I LOVE getting pedicures. But in reality I go two or three time a year – usually before special occasions. I got one in March before visiting home in Florida (yay sandals!), and I’m planning to get one next week before going to a friend’s wedding (also in Florida). I probably won’t go again after that until the wedding!
I do, however, work at a shoe store (DSW) and if I want to wear open toe shoes or any kind of sandals, I have to have well manicured toes. So I might use that as an excuse for another round before the wedding 😉

I get a fill atleast once a month and in the spring/summer a pedi at the same time.

pedicures about once a month, and manis the same unless I can afford more often – in between, I just do it myself – I love having painted nails 😉
I think the milk advice is for calcium which aids nail growth. I take a multi vitamin and it seems to do the trick

once a month from about April to Sept, and then maybe once or twice during the winter months… Unless of course we have a girls night — then a pedi is must!!

Definitely not often enough. The last mani-pedi I had was for my wedding back in September. I don’t know if this is true or not but I hear that having a pedi can stimulate labor so I am not taking any chances until June, lol when it is OK for my Dear Daughter to come out.

Hardly ever. Maybe a couple times a year. I’d just rather spend my money on something else, especially since I’m perfectly fine with doing my nails myself.

If I could afford it, I’d go all the time. However, I only go in for an actual mani a couple of times a year, for special events. I do my own manicures/pedicures at home all the time though. I’d say I do my mani once a week and my pedi every other week.

I feel like a brat. I go every other week for a manicure, and once a month for a pedicure. I love getting my nails done.
It’s funny because I could care less about my clothes, I make them, buy them at the thrift store or on clearance, but I am super-insanely high maintenence about my nails, my hair and my purses.
My boy totally understands my nail thing. And I think he spends more a month on his food tab at the country club than I spend on my nails, hair and clothes combined.

I haven’t had one done in years. I really don’t like getting pedicures because I have the tendency for ingrown toenails and the people always end up cutting the nails wrong so they go into the skin. So I’m not sure if I will ever get a pedi again. And for manicures, I usualyl keep my nails natural since they grow pretty well.

i didn’t have my first pedicure until 2007 when i was 24!! 😛 it was for my friend’s wedding toO…. i always had a phobia of strangers touching my feet and also the cleanliness of nail place foot spas…
anyway, i LVOED IT and i usually get a few during the year… i maintain myself and try to mani/pedi at least every few weeks.
