i am too embarrassed to subject some poor little asian lady to the stinkbombcallousfactories that are my feet.

such a vicious cycle, though, i'm sure that's WHY my feet are so gross- i need a pedicure!

*wail!*

I'm stuck in the same boat ..... I can't bear the look of horror that will inevitably appear on her face! :eek:

I tried out a new place in College Park called studio Two. Its more of a small spa then a nails place. after watching that City Pulse new serial about dirty nail places I'd rather pay a little more...

40 bucks pedi... individual room, small personal foot soaker tub, (not the one wiht the jets), and nice and relaxing..

i like the ones where there's lots of girls in one room its interesting to hear their conversations!

yah a good 25 dollar place (that youve scoped out beforehand for hygiene and such) is my favourite. I go to tiffany nails in the annex and its a great start to an afternoon with a friend

as far as gross feet are concerned, they have seen it all and thats why they fill the bowl up with water and often a little soap and walk away to give you a moment to swish around and get the layer of city-sandal grime off before they go to work.

quick question about pedicure etiquette... pediquette if you will hehe.

i'm due for another pedicure as mine has started to chip / grow out.
am i supposed to remove the old nail polish myself or are they happy to do it as part of the new pedicure?

jesux, i feel the same way you do. altho my feet aren't stinky (most of the time), i just feel bad having some woman brush away at the dry skin on the heels of my feet.

i did however get a great pedi from a lady named cathy at lattitudes in the eaton center. she was a bit pricey but did a fantastic job. i also managed to fall on the escalator a mere 10 minutes after leaving the spa, cracking my big toe and ruining her beautiful work!

Has anyone been to a good place near King/John?

I've scoped out the neighbourhood a *bit*, but I haven't noticed ANYTHING.

A new place opened up called Beauty Bar at King and Portland. It was alright...a bit of a nicer chop shop. Not my favourite place, but it is in the hood.

There's a salon/spa on Wellington just west of John but I can't remember the name right now though. It's on the north side of Wellington right by Quesada. I haven't been for a pedicure but I did go there for waxing once.

i saw a ghetto ad on the subway this morning for a place called "space haircraft" - they're offering 10% off if you mention the ad, as well as a free manicure with a pedicure.

i think this is perfect for me to pop my pedicure cherry... i'm sure they have all kinds of gross-footed people that walk in there!

tella - my feet are only stinky when i wear my ballet flat shoes. but good lord, when that's the case, do they ever stink! :(

oh yeah... how *often* do you guys go for pedicures? is it like a once every couple weeks kinda thing, or what?

i usually go when my feet start looking gross again in the summer, usually every six-eight weeks. in the winter it is more of a treat and betweent sept and may i go twice maybe three times total and only when i am in dire need of some mood lifting pampering.

there is a new place called BeautyLine just east of bathurst on the south side of king (next to the banknote) that has a special on till september. 30 dollars for a mani/pedi combo which is pretty decent

hahaha then maybe pedicures arent for you :p

you can do everything yourself with various creams and files. I like to go mostly for the massage at the end

I went for my first pedicure a little while ago...I too was embarassed by the condition of my feet, and the woman did an amazing job, scuffing off all the dead skin. I haven't gotten pedis done at the Eaton Centre but I've been to both Natural Solutions and Lattitudes for other things, so I would definitely give them a shot. I may try something in my neighbourhood like the King/Bathurst place or Ritual, which is on the ground floor or my building at King/Niagara.
