  1. I do them myself every two weeks in the summer (and winter). I’m too lazy to do them every week, but I get tired of the polish after a couple of weeks and feel like I have to apply something else. If it wasn’t for the polish I could probably wait 3-4 weeks, it’s not like toe nails grow that fast, lol.

    I do my pedi every week, seeing my toes ” nude ” is not acceptable lol, curiously enough I do much more pedis than manis ! My nails are very strong, quite white so I like nude fingers but toes, well that means at least 52 pedis a year !

    Never – I do a lot of long distance running so spend half of my life with damaged or missing toenails! Closed-toe shoes all the way here :)

  4. Never! Don’t touch my feet, I may kill you. :P

    I’m actually quite ticklish, so I have only had one pedicure done (and that was just a few weeks ago). I don’t usually think about my toes, though I am kind of changing that now.

  6. I usually give myself a peddy every Sunday :-)

  7. I put on new toe polish every week. I had a pedicure once, got an infection and had to go to the doctor and will never have another pedicure again :-P

    I usually wear Illamasqua polish on my toes because it lasts weeks without chipping. So I can leave my pedi’s for about 2 weeks without having to redo it.

  9. I give myself a pedicure about every 2 weeks or so. I only have professional pedicures every once in a while.

  10. i usually get a pedi every 2 weeks and i recently found a new place that dips my feet in hot wax. it was the first time i had that done, and i loved it!

    I do my own full-on pedicures monthly, but I change my polish bi-weekly.

  12. Ever since the day before I got married and got a pedicure at I. Magnin, I’ve never had a manicure or pedicure done. The woman had cut my nails so short that I had a raging infection by the time of my wedding. I was worried that I wouldn’t even be able to stand on my feet for the ceremony,

    I do my nails myself; they don’t look as good, but I feel safer.

    I’m too lazy for that :)) Just cutting them is so boring to me…Maybe I will do mine this summer, I have a lot of new polishes

    I said I’m too lazy to do mine but I wouldn’t let anyone do mine ever again. I think my mom did mine when I was little and ever since I started being conscious about it, I didn’t let her do it anymore. She cut them too short all the time. I cut mine short too but it’s uncomfortable when you cut them so short that you can’t see the white. ughhhhhhh

    I do daily “maintenance” on my feet in the shower, and file/clip the nails every couple of days, so a full pedicure really isn’t necessary. As for polish, unless my toes are exposed, I don’t really bother.

    Every two weeks, though I do my own. I splurge maybe twice a year on a pro pedi.

    I do my own pedicure when I start to get embarrassed showing my toes in public.

    I do my own pedicures monthly at home. I really dislike strangers handling my feet and prefer to save the money for other things (like feeding my eye shadow addiction). I highly recommend the Emjoi Micro Pedi for sloughing off the rough stuff.

    The mere thought of some random person touching my feet is horrifying so pedicure area huge no for me. I usually leave toenail polish on until it seriously grows out or really starts to chip because I’m lazy. I have really thin weak nails on both hands and feet so the extra layers of polish and top coat are the only things that keep them from breaking off.
