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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

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!! πŸ˜› 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.
