Do you enjoy doing your own manicures or pedicures?

Or

Would you rather leave it up to the professionals?

And

Why did you answer the way you did?

Me - I like to do my own...

And Im REAL weird bout my hands and had them done once and did not liek the smell of the lotion they used. I have to use a NON SCENTED lotion as I cant STAND them to smell like ANYTHING! I had to wash and wash my hands after all that!!!!!

So I jus do them myself... *sigh*... I know... Im weird!

I enjoy doing my own manicures. I just like how I file my own nails plus, my nails bend easily. I've had manicures where the girl is so rough with the buffing, she's bent my nail and then later that same week, it breaks where she bent it. eeeek! Be gentle woman!

Now for pedicures, I'd much rather have a someone else do my feet. It's so relaxing and pampering for me. And it feels so good to have that ever so needed massage at the end!!

I would LOVE to leave it up to the professionals, but since I am one. I do my own most of the time. There are times when I do like to have a professional manicure or pedicure. It's har for me to justify spending the money when I have all the resources to do my nails and toenails myself.

Pedicure have got to be my favorite thing to have done. What a treat!

I do my own & yes, I enjoy it. I would never consider having someone else do it, why spend the $$? I know some people like having pedicures done but that would gross me out, letting some stranger mess with my feet, uggh.

I like doing my own nails. It's relaxing, forces me to take a time out (which based on the fact that my nails have been naked since last week should say something about my schedule again lately) and since I'm a perfectionist I have to take my time.

Pedicures... non-existent in my world though with the condition of my feet, they very well should exist. I think I'd rather do it myself however, I need to learn somewhere.

Hope that explains it :)

After having watching someone do my nail (acrilic) for years (about 15) I now do my own, I have a battery powered drill, as for my feet, my boyfriend does them (he's gotten pretty good too)

I have been doing my own fingers and toes for about three years. I enjoy doing it while watching the news. I used to wear acrylics until Nailtiques came out. Now I can grow my own and I love it. My best friend and I share polishes, between the two of us we have enough polish to paint the white house. LOL

I enjoy doing my own hands and feet as you know nailgoddess i dont have manicures or pedicures as they consist of two treatments, apply creams and removing nails cuticles and skin and i never do both at the same time.

I would rather tend to my own nails.

I answered the way i did because the nail routine i follow means that i only have to spend about 20 mins a month on nail maintenance, which leaves me with more time to enjoy my nails and no time worrying about them.
