Plus-One Pedicure

0 Posted by - June 21, 2012 - Hair & Beauty

Last summer, I saw a pedicure in Glamour that I decided I must have.

Alright, yes, it’s a little weird to base a pedicure on a dalmation foot, but I am nothing if not progressive in my fashion taste. (That’s a bald-faced lie, right there. My fashion taste runs toward sweatpants and t-shirts with rude things written on them. Or anything with embarrassing amounts of cleavage.)

So I went for it.

And then I did what everyone does in the age of the internets. I posted it on Facebook and asked all my friends if they thought it was weird, even though it was too late to change it, and I didn’t really want their damn opinions anyway.

Comments included:

“Well that’s… different.”

“If you’re trying to do a piano keyboard pattern, you got it wrong.”

“Are you flipping me off with your toe?”

Lesson learned: Your friends don’t know shit about the newest, coolest trends. Rock it and ignore them.

    I kept thinking you would have an extra toe when you were done. Talk about disappointed 😉

    The symmetry is off with just the one white one. Now it would be cool if you painted every other one white. 😉

    I often paint one or two nails a different color. If you do every other I think it looks like a child’s manicure. I think it’s cute on your toes…plus I think you can get away with just about anything on your toes. 🙂

    Will you stop already? I’m supposed to be writing and you are distracting me.

    It’s only good if you’re walking around with the dog! Otherwise it looks like you just missed one.
    Love your writing! Made my weekend!

    I think it’s pretty damn awesome!

    I like it, and I think it looks cute with the red shoes.

  • Suzanne E. June 25, 2012 - 11:40 am Reply

    Would be much cuter with the right shoes. It is her shoes that make it look so good.

      yep, her shoes cover up much of her toes

    Who cares what I think? But since there’s this tempting little white box here asking for my reply… I like it. It beats my month-old no-pedicure. If it were me, I’d have taken it a step further and flipped the other foot, making only one toe black and the rest white; and screw the heels, go w/barefoot sandals. But that’s just me. And who cares anyway?

    you are too funny!!!

  • Renee June 26, 2012 - 5:13 am Reply

    …am I the only person who cares that it’s the opposite of the dogs nails, which are white with only one black one?

    • StephaniHaefner July 22, 2012 - 9:24 am Reply

      LOL!! I noticed that!!!

    This is one of my favorite pedicures. Its definitely not weird. I get some negative comments too sometimes, but I like it so much it doesn’t really bother me.

    You are totally flipping us off with your toe.

    Delightful beeyotch.

    If I step away from the laptop…your’s resembles a camel toe!!!

  • ksb June 27, 2012 - 10:16 pm Reply

    The model seems to have bent toes, but I think doing this to match your shoes would help a good deal.

    I just got this same pedicure done today.  I love it!  Beside who gives a fuck they’re just toes.  I mean as long as they’re not fungus infested – who cares?  

  • Morgielicious September 7, 2012 - 2:20 pm Reply

    I think it only looks good because the model has a dalmation foot next to her foot. Maybe if you had a dalmation you could take everywhere with you. That’s really the second part of this tutoiral. 1)paint your toes black and white 2) buy a dalmation.
