Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

Do you get manicures and/or pedicures?

I don't. I've had one pedicure and that was last summer. Someone gave me a gift card to go do it. I wasn't a fan b/c I have this thing against feet AND I'm super ticklish. As far as the manicures go-there's really no need since I stay home all day. Even when I worked I just did my nails myself.

Pin It!

I'm like you. I just can't justify the money spent on that kind of thing for myself. If someone gave me a gift card, though, that would be a different story!

Happy Aloha Friday! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Well, I have to admit that when I worked and our income situation was different...I was (looking back)....rather foot-loose and fancy free! Not only did I get manucures and pedicures but I went to a spa near us for them which meant it was $140 for the duo! EEEK. Now I didn't go evey week or anything but I did go several times a year with my friend!

Now that I am a stay-at-home mommy, mani/pedi's and cleaning ladies are a thing of the past. LOL. My whole outlook has changed from "having it done" to "doing it myself" which means cleaning, nails, baking bread, canning food...th whole works and I AM LOVING IT!

I do not get manicures or pedicures. I've had two pedicures in my life, and after the last one, two of my toenails fell off! Gross, I know. They just fell completely off and then after new ones grew, they were fine. Isn't that weird? So, needless to say, that made me never want to go have a pedicure again, LOL!

I use to. It's hard to find the time or justify the expense.

Have a great Friday!

I've only ever gotten one manicure, for my wedding and have never gotten a pedicure. But my mom gave me a half day spa package for Mother's Day which includes a pedicure so I can't wait to have one! Unfortunately I'm waiting for my sister to go with me and I might be waiting a while longer...

Mighty M said...

I never get manicures. I get pedicures maybe a few times a year. ;-)

shopannies said...

nope never do my own nails and have a cousin who has been trained but normally just paint my own

I LOVE manicures and pedicures, but I don't get to indulge often. This summer, I had 2 pedicures. I love going for one in the winter when it's cold and dreary....I feel like it gives me hope for warmer weather! As for manicures, I go about once a month to a small salon for their $10 manicure special and then I maintain them myself at home. It's the only thing that has helped me stop biting them!!!

Ave said...

I do my nails myself.

MOMMY-MOMO said...

not on a regular basis. I get pedi's much more often in the summer though. i need one now actually

Michelle said...

I love getting a pedicure! I usually get both together since they offer a big discount on the manicure with the pedicure.

That said it is about once a year or less that I get one.

Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

I used to get my nails done ALL the time. I would love to get a manicure. Maybe I'll get one in preparation for my upcoming anniversary in September.

Jennifer said...

I have never had either.

Abby said...

I love getting pedicures but it is a very rare occasion for me. Usually for someone's wedding or something. I never really do manicures.

Stefany said...

I used to get pedicures and loved it. Now, money is too tight. :(

Jennifer Leigh said...

BK - Before kids- I always had my nails taken care of...ok I was also a high school kid then too but haha

I've had a couple manicures. My feet look so much better to have them done and I'm ticklish too and can't stand feet. I aim for one at the beginning of summer then I try to maintain it.

wkiskizt said...

I had a manicure once, but I've never had a pedicure. I'd love to get one at least once, though!

{Kiki} said...

I give myself mani-pedis. If I have a few extra I will go get them done at the salon, but it is easier to do it myself. Aloha and take care.
Great song choice BTW. Aretha is awesome.

I used to get regular manicures but that's an easy expense to knock out during tough times so not anymore.

I'm gonna get a pedicure before the conference though!

Diane said...

i dont fuss with my fingernails too much because i'm an artist, so it's pretty much pointless.

toes, i do myself! honestly i can't stand the thought of a stranger messing with my feet! lol

have a great weekend!

Nina said...

About once or twice a year my girlfriend drags me off, and we get both. She usually does this as some type of gift. She is such a great friend.

Me, I am too cheap, would love to but hate spending the money.

Swoozie said...

Yeppers to both! Although it is getting tougher and tougher finding the time.......so my appts are more and more spread out! Which saves money so it all kind of works out!

Erin @ Closing Time said...

I don't get manicures or pedicures. I am incredibly ticklish too, and the thought of someone giving me a pedicure just sounds like torture! I do my nails myself!

Tena said...

I do, this is how I escape the house of all boys and try to find my sanity!

MommyBrain said...

I see this as a total luxury. Something I treat myself to every once in a while. I do love a pedicure though, especially when she spends lots of time rubbing my feet and calves ... I am such a sucker for that type of massage ... I like it better than a neck/back massage!

Becca said...

I am not a foot person so I have never had a pedicure but I used to love getting manicures when I had the money to spare.

AudreyO said...

I've never had a pedicure and I haven't had a manicure in probably 10 years.

Jenny said...

I haven't for years. It costs too much. I did enjoy it though.

~ Noelle said...

I used to get them!
I even had my husband go with me once! I love them...
but, then I got pregnant and didn't want to be around all those chemicals. Now, I just don't have the time, OR THE MONEY! :)

LADYHIGHTOWER said...

I used to between my 3 grown kids flying the nest and then adopting a newborn. Now I don't have the money! Stop by! http://psychicmamaindigochild.blogspot.com/2009/08/aloha-friday-3-squares.html

Pamela M. Kramer said...

Neither. :(

Can't afford it. Must feed the children. lol

Baba said...

It's been years since I had either.

JamericanSpice said...

I've only had it done twice in my life. Someone else paid.

Too expensive for my budget.

Rob said...

I actually have had a pedi once with my wife. LOL. and I would get one again.

**Nicole** said...

When I worked I would get them once or twice a year for our anniversary or my b-day as a gift to myself...I adore them! Since I had my baby though and am a stay at home mom, I don't get them anymore....they're just too expensive for a single income to support!
