My last pedicure was 3 weeks ago last Saturday, i.e., the day before our house burned down. Normally I’ll go far too long between pedicures, for financial reasons. They’re comparatively inexpensive, but I’m on very tight funds for one more month.
But all things considered, I decided I needed one, and when I stopped to pick up the dry cleaning, I saw there was a nail shop there. The nail polish colour I picked out is indicative of my mood: black. The woman who did my pedicure did a fantastic job, and gave me a lovely foot & lower leg massage. And she went to town on my callouses–lathering on a lot of callous remover, scrubbing–at one point in frustration she wrapped my heels in plastic wrap to try to soften them up a bit. My feet look loads better, and they feel loads better.
So I’d rather take care of my callouses myself instead of paying $5 extra for someone else to do it. I need to get some callous cream and see if that will help. And the last time I got a pedicure, another woman there told me that she uses a cheese grater on her heels, along with the callous cream, and it works wonders. I’d never thought of using plastic wrap, though. I may have to give that a try. I confess that I’m embarrassed by my tough cracked nasty heels that even a pedegg doesn’t work too well on.
