    I spend more time on my feet than my hands.
    I paint my toe nails ever week and a half or so.
    I love to wear sandals and flip flops, so I have to
    make sure the toes are looking good ! : )

    I pay a fair amount of attention to both, but my hands more often than my feet – I use hand cream every day, sometimes I do the whole overnight thing… I have a foot scrub that I use about once a week, and do an overnight moisturizing session, but my feet still don’t look that great.

    I pay a lot of ttention to them. My nails and toesnailas are always polished. I use my foot scrub twice a week

    My feet are another obsession of mine. I do mini-pedicures every 3 days. I love adding designs and jewels and changing the color and look every few days. I LOVE showing off my feet.

    With my hands, thankfully I don’t have to pay too much attention to them. I get them professionally manicured every 2 1/2 weeks and moisturize everytime I wash my hands to keep them soft and supple.

    I’m bad :( I hardly pay any attention to my hands and feet. I mean it cut and file but I rarely paint them. I do try to keep hand and foot cream around in case they get TOO dry, but normally the after shower lotion I use works just fine.

    Now that it’s summer and the toes are all out, I do keep them painted, but that’s pretty much it. Between my daughter and all the housework, it’s pointless to get my nails done, so I just keep them trimmed and moisturized.

  6. Barely any at all, to be honest. I try to pamper them, but I just never think of it. Definitely something I’m working on.

    Can anyone give me a suggestion to get rid of that white chalky looking stuff on my toenails? I’ve been told it is from leaving dark nail polish on too long! Thanks

    I do a thermal pedicure foot treatment weekly.

    Paint them weekly.

    Nails.

    I try to paint them…they chip with in two days..so I mostly keep them w/ a clear coat of nail polish :)

    oh my gosh.. when it comes to my hands and feet i SERIOUSLY think i have a mild case of OCD.. they have to be clean at ALL times. i wash my hands probably 20 times a day and my feet 3 or 4 times (aside from shower).; they have to be manicured and pedicured RELIGIOUSLY. i cant walk barefoot cause then my feet get dirty and thats when the OCD kicks in.. in my hands i have acrylics so its not much maintenance, but if i have even the slightest polish chip on my toes i cannot pay attention to anything else until i fix it!! huff.. i think i need a specialist..

    My feet require the most maintenance…I use a lavender scrub for my feet every night when I get in the shower – I forget who it’s by, the tag came off! Anyway, I paint my toes regularly, and constantly keep my feet moisturized, because the get dry quickly. My hands, on the other hand, require alot less. I paint my nails maybe twice a week, and not because the paint chips (i’m extra careful about that), but because I really like variety :). I keep lotion on my hands often to, and thats just about it.

    Not a lot. Luckily I have really easy feet, as they are always soft and problem free without any effort.
    For my hands I always carry a hand cream with me. Because I work in a lab, big nails are a bother and nail polish cracks with the latex gloves, so I just trim my nails when needed and apply cream frequently.

    My hands get a moisturizing treat whenever I apply moisturizer on my always dry legs! So I guess they’re pretty fine :D My feet are hopeless though! I scrub them with Body Shop’s lemongrass foot scrub, but ar, they’re still hard and dry. But I don’t hate my feet! It just feels like my feet have been through more and they’re stronger, and that’s why I don’t mind the hard spots anymore :)

  14. I regularly care for my hands and feet. Yeah like Jenna I moisturize my legs like everyday so my hands just get covered in it anyways!

    regular nail maintenance on both hands and feet is a must for me! :)

    I ignore the mess out my hands. I use Olay lotion everywhere and I trim my nails every week or so, but as for professionally done, or even using professional products, no. Not at all. I get my feet done every 2 to 3 weeks now that it’s summer time, though, and I always make sure they’re moisturized.
