Reasons to get a pedicure: one, two, three

By Aisling | July 24 2008 | 38 Comments


I’m shamelessly advocating this treatment today. Why? Because I realised that I need to take my trotters off to get poifected asap. Getting a pedicure is such a feel good treat – and here’s my reasons to book yourself in for that pedicure:

  1. Your feet will not only look gorgeous – they’ll feel fab too. Total transformation, I promise you.
  2. Your piggies will be painted a gorgeous chip proof colour and look fantastic in sandals.
  3. Trained hands will basically give you a foot rub for ages, scrub away dead skin, file any yellow bits, clip your toenails and rub footbalm into your heels.

If you’re like me you’ll never have the patience to file, pumice, scrub, rub and painstakingly paint to professional standards.

This is a fab indulgence and if you’ve never had a pedicure before treat yourself soon. Even if it’s not strictly sandal weather it’s the nicest treatment – and lasts for weeks and weeks.

    Ooooh I’d love a pedicure, must try and organise one. The last one I had done was absolutely brilliant, the polish was basically indestructible and looked as good the day I took it off (looooong afterwards) as the day I’d had it done.

    Pedicures are the only beauty treat I regularly have – try to have one a month. Can’t recommend Mink in Ballsbridge highly enough. But the best one I ever had was in Croatia in this random salon. My feet were so soft and lovely!

  • Aphrodite says:

    The first time I ever got one done I remember looking at my tootsies and thinking they looked gorgeous – for the first time ever!

  • Dobby says:

    I friggin LOVE pedicures. Had one amazing and one awful one in Thailand. Have yet to have one here – is there anywhere in the city centre that do pedicures. Nue Blue Eriu?

  • Townygirl says:

    i have really tickly feet . . . i’m honestly afraid i’ll kick the beautician. DOes it tickle?

  • Lynnie says:

    I didn’t think so Towny, they’re massaging and firmly rubbing your feet rather than just tickling them (for want of a better word but you know what I mean!) so I’d say you should be alright unless you really can’t take anyone even touching them.

    I have this image in my head now of you in a pedicure throne with the beautician sitting there doing the tootsies while kitted out like an ice hockey goalie to protect from flying feet :D

  • Aphrodite says:

    I’ve kicked the beautician! When they press a certain reflex in my foot I just can’t help it!

  • Jenknee says:

    essentials on baggot street are great for pedicures.

  • Clarence says:

    Love love Mink in Ballsbridge – and going on Friday.. cant wait!

  • Lynnie says:

    Oh Jenknee, have you ever been to that Nahm place? Or do you reckon that Essentials is the best place to go (generally) in the area?

  • Suzy says:

    Madness!!! I was just thinking for the last few days how i must get a pedicure and manicure. Never had one before so am a bit wary. Am getting married in November and am trying every beauty treatment/make up going ha ha!

  • Aphrodite says:

    I had my last pedicure done in Kameleon – it was only gorgeous!

  • Townygirl says:

    lol Lynnie, i’m not fond of anything even near my feet . . the pupster licked my toes once and it took every fibre of my being not to drop kick him across the room .. methinks i’d best skip the pedicure sigh

  • Lynnie says:

    Ah Towny stop it… now I have a slow-mo image in my head of the poor lickle pupster looking very surprised and going “wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” as he flies slooooowwly through the air…

    (Obviously to land uninjured on an enormous fluffy beanbag or similar.)

    Pedicures are the work of the Gods.

    I had a cranberry and white chocloate one(posh I know!) in Mink Donnybrook, it was amazing and the polish did not budge for about 3 weeks!

  • Townygirl says:

    3 weeks. that’s brilliant littlesis

  • Dobby says:

    Oh great Jenkee. I work in Pembroke so that is fab for me.

  • Bee says:

    Towny, when you said the pupster licked your feet I thought it was a pet name for your man. It made me go “Eugh” a litte bit. I just got it there when Lynnie replied that you actually mean a puppy. Doh.

    For me, I feel a bit weird having different coloured polish on my fingers and toes. Like them to match. Am I the only Beauty OCD person out there? I tut tut when I see celebs with mismatched fingies and toesies.

  • Flame says:

    That colour in the pic looks fab on toes! A pedicure sounds nice alright!

  • PinkPanther says:

    Just received my Sally Hansen prize so I’ll have fabulous tootsies. Thanks a million girls, endless fun playing with my goodies!
