Two for the Road

Good day, Kitschies!  Yep.  You're reading this right.  Two posts in one day!  It's much less chaotic here at the clinic and I missed a post on Tuesday, so I'm making up for it today. 

I know nail bloggers don't post many pedicures.  Why is that?  I know...toes are (generally) gross, but if you take the time to give yourself a pedi, why not share the pics?  Saying that, I hope I don't repulse you with my post today.  If I do...get over it.  LOL  Everybody's got toes.  Let's move on, shall we?

This is Zoya Jacy.  Isn't she beautiful?  This is a medium magenta with a purple shimmer.  The shimmer is rather subtle, but it's gorgeous.  Very opaque, I could've gotten away with only one coat but I used two.  I got Jacy from the Facebook offer Zoya had a couple months ago (in January?).

Toes!  I couldn't just leave this a plain pedi, so I grabbed my silver striping polish and a purple-ish rhinestone.  I don't know what's with the design, but this is how it turned out.  The hubs asked if it was "wings".  I don't see wings.  Do you?

Now, the second pedi is a little more up my alley. 

I started with a base of Finger Paints Easel Come, Easel Go (silver metallic).  Then using the black and magenta striping polishes I picked up at Ross (I think they're Art Club...I can't remember).  I was really surprised at how opaque the magenta was.  I was going for a plaid design which I got to turn out ok on one of the toes.  The other one?  Yeah.  It's plaid...though not like the other one.  Oh, well.  Nobody sees my toes this time of year anyway.  Good thing, huh?

Here's my question to my fellow nail bloggers.  Why don't you post pics of your pedis?  Or do you just not do your toes?

Toesies! I love them. Yes, everyone thinks toes are gross and thats too freaking bad. I post mine too. Just 10 more places to put nail polish, Yay!

And that second pedi is so cute with the stripes. I also find that I do a lot of nail art on my toes.

Normally I don't like to look at toes... but yours are cute!

I don't have a problem with feet... but I've seen some REAL winners. I'll bet a lot of nail bloggers do some seriously nice pedis. I think April at does hers. The button is on my blog.

If for some reason I get a good pedi this summer I'll post ;) no one needs to see winter feet haha

I love pedicure picture! I've never understand people's aversion to feet and toes. However, I do understand their aversion to MY toes. Mine are really weird and people ALWAYS comment on them, especially my big toe. It is really big and I have tiny, tiny nails that can't grow or I'll get ingrown toenails. I literally have a tiny circle of nail in a giant sea of toe! And that is why I would never post pictures of my feet!

And I also see wings!

I can see how he thought they were wings. And with plaid on your toes, do you need to wear any plaid socks? Nope!!

I still don't get why so many folks think toes are gross. Glad you showed off your pedi, though. :)

I love the plaid! I never realized how many people freak out about feet; sure there are some gross ones out there, but that's true of any body part, I think. There are some fingernails I'd rather not look at, but no one puts warnings on those posts. :)

It cracks me up when people say they hate toes, everyone has toes how can you hate them??? I like the 2nd peddi A LOT, especially your big toe. LOVE that silver though too. Ohh & I agree with your hubs, I was thinking wings before you even said that. LOL
