Gel on toes?

I was getting a manicure the other day and while drying I saw an ad for gel polish on toes. Anyone ever get this? Does it truly last just as long? If you've gotten it, do you wear sandals or sneakers/closed shoes more? I'd love to try it, but it's a bit expensive by me - $40 for the toes.

My daughter has done it, and it doesn't last as long when she does it, it did last a good 2 weeks without chipping. She works in a gym and is barefoot most of the time, so normal nail polish will only last 2-3 days at most without chipping. Not something I would personally do on a regular basis, cut for a special occasion, I could see doing it. I think the only drawback for me personally is you have to go back to the salon to have it taken off (at a price), or purchase the special remover at the beauty supply place.
