Question of the Week: Be honest: How long do you go between pedicures?

Answer: You what?  Is this another thing that proves I’m failing at being a well-cared for woman?  I’ve had one pedicure in my life and it left me mentally, emotionally, and almost physically scarred.  I couldn’t wear shoes for three days afterward… well, I bloody had to because I was on holiday in London at the time.  I shudder even now as I think about my poor, bleeding cuticles… seriously, never again.

The closest you’ll get me to a pedicure nowadays is a pair of nail clippers and a pumice stone, I’m done with foot-pampering.

    Only ever had one and realised I can’t stand my feet being touched. It was so uncomfortable!

    Ugh, I’m totally with you on the pedicure thing. There’s no way in hell I’m going to expose myself to all kinds of infections and nasties just so a stranger can touch my feet. *shudder*
