Now, before you go further, I have to tell you there are photos of my feet that are downright nasty. Ugly nasty. And the super Ninja Nancy with a razor blade-like tool was able to tune them up superbly. So are you ready for the pics? Brace yourself…
This cool beast of a chair is not only functional in the sense that it is a chair, it is also a MASSAGE chair. Yes, while I was sitting beside Lee-Anne chatting about blogging and our kids and having my feet made beautiful (more beautiful?) I was having my back massaged. Cool. So cool.
See how I am easing you into this? You ready for the nasty pics? Turn back now or…
See that nasty bit lurking on my big toe? Yeah. Ninja Nancy with her Credo Knife carved it into submission. From what I gather, the pedicure people typically use the Credo Knife once, maybe twice on a foot. (For those who don’t know, a Credo Knife is a two sided razor blade-like knife that scrapes off dead skin like a chef shaving parmesan cheese off a block).
Want to see what I mean? Yeah…
The wild thing is, Ninja Nancy, my pedicure artist went back to the Credo FIVE separate times. She admitted that my feet were pretty challenging to work with. But she never quit.
The end result of all this scraping and shaving and filing and buffing? Two beautiful feet.
Overall, it was a cool experience to have my feet “taken care of”. It felt great to soak them in warm bubbling water and have someone massage them with gritty pastey stuff that made me feel goose-bumpy.
It was fun to sit and and chat with a friend and not worry about anything else right there and then. It just felt good.
And the end result; my feet are now beautiful.
And the colour? That thing about choosing what colour to have my toes painted?
Really, you want to know what colour I had them done (much to the protestations of Ninja Nancy).
To see my painted toe nails, visit the Mom Paradigm and have a look!!
