Mom Blogs About Taking Her Son For Pedicures

I’m loving this post on Raising My Rainbow, a parenting blog hosted on Queerty written by the mother of “a slightly effeminiate, possibly gay, totally fabulous son.” In this latest post, she writes about taking her son for pedicures and how rudely everyone in the nail salon behaved. The woman doing the mom’s pedicure…

The Soapbox: Let’s Take The “Man” Out Of Mani/Pedi

I boldly venture into sexist territory. I move we take the “man” out of mani/pedi. Why? Because sitting next to someone of the opposite sex in my nail salon is different than sitting side-by-side with another woman. It just is.

I fully accept that some nice metrosexual may want his nails buffed or…

Tough Love For Rough Soles

You could never tell by the gleaming chip-free polish on my toes that there is a horror show happening on the soles below. Walking has been my main source of transportation for the last 10 years and I have the callouses to prove it. Trips to the salon soften things for a few days, but…

Do You Like Men With Painted Toenails?

Cristiano Ronaldo has been poolside during the NYC heat wave, which means his black toenail polish had been on display. Cristiano, who enjoys shopping at Gucci and Armani, probably knows how to treat himself well — pedicure and all. But is polishing his toes, like Dean McDermott does, a little too much? The men at…

30-Day Breakup Guide Challenge: Getting A Pink Pedicure On Day 12

In her second video blog, Maude Standish embarks upon a dangerous, uncharted mission for The Frisky — her first pedicure ever. When The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide instructed her to “buy something pink,” she decided to play footsie, getting some pink polish painted on her virgin toes. Of course, it wasn’t as easy as

How To Give Yourself A Great Pedicure

Beauty-wise, there are two really great things about winter: 1) you don’t really have to shave, and 2) the state of your toes is largely irrelevant because they’re so often encased in boots and other toe-hiding shoes. Come summer, both of these become weird and disgusting, so you have to start, you know, taking care…

How To Keep Your Feet Looking Nice This Summer

When I lived at home, my mom made us — and our confused friends — wash our feet in the sink before entering the house proper during the summer. In sandal weather, she could often be heard admonishing us not to “drag our street feet into the house!” As a result, I’m flexible and balanced…

Kate Gosselin Liked The Pedicure Slippers So Much She Wore Them Home

Kate Gosselin got a pedicure yesterday, and, not wanting to mess up her paint job, she wore the foam slippers home and carried her heeled sandals. Do you plan to wear certain shoes when you get your toes done so that you don’t encounter similar issues?

Minx Nails, You Saw Them Here First!

Everyone has been talking about Minx Nails lately. The nail art was featured in a recent issue of Vogue and on “Today” this morning, but I have to say these “news” outlets are a little behind. The Frisky gave you the dish on Minx back in October, and even interviewed manicurist, Lisa Logan, who wa…

Bootie Pies: Convenience I Don’t Understand

I was flipping through New York magazine at the gym last night and was absolutely puzzled when I came across a small ad for something called “Bootie Pies.” These boots are made for wearing during the winter after you get a pedicure. The company means well. They don’t want your newly painted nails to get…

My Feet No Longer Make Me Feel Ashamed: Why I Love The Ped-Egg

I have a bit of a foot problem. For whatever reason, despite fairly frequent pedicures, especially during the winter months (which I pay for less out of vanity and more because I friggin’ lovvvvve a salon massage chair [that does the kneeding NOT the vibrating, FYI]), my feet, while perfectly shaped (fact), are…
