GOSH seriously? I just want to smack the people that get pedicures every week, or every other week. I try to get one, maybe, twice a year? And mostly I want to smack them because from their Michael Kors handbag to their Chanel Sunglasses, they can obviously afford it. Me, being the new frugal person that I am (especially with a baby on the way, baby stuff is freakin expensive!!) I do my own pedicure myself. Most of the time, I skip the whole, soak-the-feet-scrub-the-legs-scrub-the-feet-massage-until-hands-are-numb type deal, and just go right in with a buffer and my polish.
Well this girl went on a 4 mile walk, in flip flops, on a 90 degree day with a 4 1/2 month old baby and let me just tell you… 1) I felt awesome afterwards for about 15 minutes and 2) Since then? Worst foot and hip pain I’ve ever experienced. And obviously, my feet took a serious beating. I can’t even look at them. So off to Sally’s Beauty I went!
So the girl at Sally’s Beauty recommended the Heel & Toe brand, it also happened to be buy two, get one free. So I purchased one full size item, and two travel size items to test out, and got one of the travel size items for free. I also FINALLY!!! purchased a new bottle of Seche Vite because Essie’s Good to Go is the worst topcoat on the planet. And of course they got me at the counter and somehow, someway, she got me to spend $0.79 on a wide tooth comb. I’ve heard though, that you should be combing your hair, especially when you get right out of the shower, with a wide tooth comb to prevent breakage. So hey, maybe it’s a good thing.
I’ll have a separate review on the Heel & Toe products shown above in a later post. I can’t WAIT to try them out though. My feet are throbbing, and have been for 3 days now. Note to self: flip flops + 4 mile walk = death to feet.
