Happy Feet!



Now that summer is officially only a few days away, it's time to sport those cute toe-baring shoes if you haven't already! In order to wear your killer gladiator sandals or fabulous peep-toe pumps with confidence, having a nice pedicure is mandatory. Having chipped polish and ashy heels is not a good look and can take away from your overall BG chicness.

As always, awesome topic. I get a pedicure monthly at the nail shop in the summer time (if not more) I don't give myself full home pedicures, but special care is taken every night with a different treatment of sorts. The pig toe separators are TOO CUTE!

I'm thinking about getting a Ped Egg Pedicure Foot file for the in between times. You're right ashiness and crustiness will take away from your BG chicness and is unacceptable. :)

i keep forgetting about that ped egg. i think i prefer to go to the nail shop to get my feet done rather than do them myself at home, despite all the germs and what not. maybe i'll at least pick up that pedicure kit from sally's to take with me. as usual, good post!

Wes said...

Yep I do my mani's & pedi's both at home too... It takes me awhile but I do a much better job and mine last much longer than the salons.

Love the choices but i like to get mine done. its so relaxing and its great way to unwind at the end of the day.

Fun post. My at home pedis are a quick swipe of polish. Maybe I'll take a bit more time with them now. Thanks BG!

BGG! You're right what a good way to start the summer which starts Saturday June 21st with happy feet. I do my own pedicure, because I get nervous of getting cooties at a salon. I love the pink separators and looking forward to trying the new Olay thermal.
"this little piggy went to the marker: LOL!

Love the pink piggie toe spacers.

I do a home pedicure. I'd love to have 'em done professionally, but I'm too paranoid about catching something.

I do my own manis and pedis. My work looks better and lasts longer than the pros. I will say that I didn't really like the ped egg. I passed it on to my husband who LOVES it.

@Everyone - I've never heard of the Ped Egg, but thanks for the info. I must give it a try!

K-Bear said...

BGG, I used to go to the salon fairly often until I got a staph infection. Needless to say, my visits are few and far between now. I happen to LOVE my Ped Egg and I keep it in a very cute little basket behind the toilet so sometimes I take a few extra moments to smooth things over since I'm just sitting there! Ash, crust & crud are a NO NO! The Ped Egg takes care of all of that...then I just soak my feet and slather on some type of foot cream, apply nice red polish and I'm good to go. BTW, it's be sandal weather for months here in H-town!

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

i have almost all of that stuff, but i hardly ever use it. there's just no mimicking a professional pedicure in my book :-) but if there's an emergency, i'll whip out some stuff just to hold me over until i can get to the spa

MzTravelDiva said...

I really do want to start doing my own mani/pedis at home. Its so important to learn how to pamper yourself. I need to start doing more of that. Will definitely check out some of your suggestions soon!

Thanks for this post... in fact every day in the shower i give my feet some extra love... now an excuse to use all those free feet care thingy come in a gift basket...

Ashley-Nicole said...

great selection BGG! Sally Beauty Supply always makes the best nail care kits, especially for the toes.

that guy said...

nice post...but most of the brothers i know don't pay that much attention to the toes.

Tawanna said...

I live in FL and pedicures are a must! If im not at the office, you will catch me in my flip-flops. They are sooo comfortable! I haven't heard of the ped egg before, but I will check it out during my next visit at Target.

nywele said...

thank you for the review! I will check out the olay one...it sounds delish :)

AZ said...

Good tips but nothing does it for me like a professional - I need to find a friend to do these options for me - wink wink BGG!

juvenescent said...
