I've never been a great fan of my feet. I don't consider them pretty or dainty though I'd love to. I'm self conscious when wearing peep toes, I keep my feet covered. I'm a size six but I always think my feet look huge. I hate the rough skin and my squished toes and nails from wearing the heels that I love. I don't mind having a manicure, in fact I love it, it's so relaxing, and I love the result but pedicures are another thing entirely, until this week.
Girl's night out number 2 this year was a trip to the beauty salon. We could choose 2 treatments. A mani was an essential, I play bass, it wrecks my hands and nails, what more can I say! Waxing & epilating is something I do myself continually, no need there, facials are the last frontier for a girl who hates being out without her makeup. A pedicure was the only other option! Gulp.
I am now so converted. It was such an incredibly relaxing experience at the end of a long and tiring day. From the relaxing, fragrant, bubbling foot spa, having my nails filed and shaped, to the exfoliating foot scrub, moisturizing, gorgeous foot massage and hot booties, I enjoyed every deliciously stress relieving moment. I couldn't help smiling and going aahh! the whole time.
The bonus was my French nails. I can now see my nails and not cringe with embarassment. I can't help thinking that now I've done it once I'll be going back again....and again....and again :) if you've ever hesitated to have a pedicure done because you hate your feet, don't. Pick up the phone and make yourself an appointment, you really won't regret it.
Now I just have to psych myself up to having a facial...watch this space.
