    Did I miss a much needed article in Cosmo or Teen growing up? I seriously dread cutting them. They never look nice, still bother me when I get in bed. Please, what are your secrets for this embarrassing avenue of my life? tee hee

    I dunno. I hate cutting mine too. Lol! If only someone could come give me weekly pedicures. Maybe after I win the powerball tonight? I'll pay for your weekly pedicures too and I'll even make them come to your house!

    Ugh...add me to the list, too. I more hate cutting my kids toenails. I just hate feet in general. :P

    Pedicure. I have mine done every few weeks or so ... more often during the summer. Pretty affordable at just $20 where I am, and they do such a great job. :)

    Pedicure for sure! I do my own in the winter and can hardly see what I'm doing anymore!

    This or I cut and file smooth. I hate when they catch. I'm not a huge fan of feet, lol! Don't ask about my kids... I "gently" remind DH to do it.

    I didn't either. But then I had one because of a gift. And it was bliss! I totally out for pedicures in the summer.
    Right now, I'm waiting for that dang broken nail to fall off or grow out and it's driving me crazy!

    My winter secret though is to cut my nails after a shower when they are clean and softer. And to buy new clippers yearly. It's amazing the difference in an old worn out pair and a new one.

    Pedicure. I don't really like anyone touching my feet either. The secret is to find someone you trust. I lurked by getting a manicure while I scoped how they handled feet. I can't do it myself anymore so now I go to the same nail place every three weeks or so. Makes my life much easier.

    Oh Anne, you come up with the most amusing topics. Me too hate cutting them. But I'm going to use Courtney's idea and buy a new pair of clippers. I usually try to do them after a shower as well.

    Seeing that I am a Cosmetologist, I actually love feet, and don't mind cutting toenails one bit (unless they are really bad...then I can think of things I like better). Anyway - pedis can be rather expensive, so I don't go and get them, but maybe that is because I can do my own. The key is a good toenail clippers - not the curved out kind either... I spotted one of those in my moms drawer and gasped...didn't know they even made them like that - those do a number on your toes...you need the kind that curves in slightly!

    I don't mind cutting mine after i shower and they're softer, but cutting the kids' nails is torture for both them and me! Im not a fan of dealing with others stinky feet! Mine of course don't stink.... lol

    My husband always has nice toenail clippers. I steal his when I need to clip my toenails. I gotta tell you though, I have ugly feet. Over 25 years as a dancer, I've been on my toes the majority of my life. I don't mind cutting my talons though. What I can't stand is having do redo my fingernail polish after I've put a lot of effort into it.

    I don't mind cutting my own toenails, but I hate cutting the kids'! I'm more afraid I'm going to cut their toe off than anything... but also? I think the "snip!" sound of toenails being cut is kinda disgusting! *gag*

    I have never put this much thought into toenails and I'm surprised by the strong feelings in this thread :giggle
    Srsly, I just cut them when they need cutting and then I'm done. (Do we not have a shrugging, indifferent smiley? :ballbounce)

    I found a wonderful place for manicures and pedicures nearby but it definitely is pricey. I'm lucky to have nice nails but I'll say it's a challenge to actually SEE well enough to paint my toenails with as much precision as I'd like. Living in the land of sun and sandals, mine are painted pretty much all the time.

    My son has the best nail clippers, we've never been able to find another pair like them. But I still look everywhere I go for a nice set. They can make all the difference in the world.
