My First Pedicure (But Not My Last!)



Many moons ago, when I was younger and had a credit card, I would get artificial nails with fancy designs at the salon.  Since then, I've not had a mani done and probably won't.  I don't like how my real nails get tore up in the process, and I have no doubt nail files were torture devices invented by the devil.

Because I have the best Small Group gals ever, we got together last week for a mani/pedi session.  I only went for the pedicure.  Again, manicures aren't my thing.  

But now that I've had my first pedicure ever (at the age of 40 no less!) I have no doubt those will become a regular thing.  How did I not know about how glorious pedicures are before now?!
For one thing, it's like getting a massage and pedi all in one.  With the touch of a few buttons, the chair massaged my entire back.  If I hadn't of been with friends, I would've fell asleep in a New York minute.

I've got some fugly feet but wasn't afraid to show them.  The heavens parted when the pedicurist massaged, trimmed, and exfoliated.  I chose a dark green shimmery nail polish for color.

When it came to filing, I had a bit of a problem.  I had a hold of Felicia's arm till it almost went numb.  After the first foot, he had to give up on the second.  I swear, nail files will make me want to crawl a wall in no time flat.  They're pure evil, I tell ya.

I left that place feeling like I'd done been spoiled.  And I made the girls pinky swear me we'd do it again in three weeks.

This place even had the cutest little puppy.  Alaina, lover of all things animal, smothered it with love.

Have you ever had a pedicure?  If no, go get one NOW!  You'll thank me.

I haven't had one. I have ugly feet, so I'm not sure how I feel about getting one.

Everyone has fugly feet! I have never met a pair of feet that I thought, wow those are nice. No. People with foot fetishes---I just don't get it.
Pedicures are nice as long as the water is not super flaming hot, but the whole time I think about "Eww, that poor woman/man has to touch feet ALL DAY LONG, and I wonder if mine are the most jacked up feet he/she has ever had to touch! hahaha but seriously, feet are nasty.

I was 30 years old when I had my first pedicure, it was so nice. Sure I can paint my own toes but I love to invite a girlfriend along and have a girl day moment and a treat. Great way to spend time with someone.
