heheheh... some people have their regular manicure and pedicure like once or twice a month. Others also will just do it when it is needed. Well, now that I am not working outside home, I don't need to have a monthly pedicure or manicure, I just do it myself as needed unlike when I was yet in my country? I have somebody to do it for me home service regular every month. But here? oh my!!! too expensive. I can go for many months without having this.. hehehehe

Once in a week. Do you know someone who buys finger nails? becasue I have more than a kilo of them in my store room. LOL! Yes, once in a week does good for me. I don't like long nails as they are not good for your health becaue we use to eat with our hands so, if ew have long nails then we will have good chance of eating those dirty particles which are lying inside our nails, isn't it?

If I can no longer wait for a person to do it for me, I just do it myself. That happens rarely. Most of the time I have somebody to do it for me. There is someone who will do my manicure and pedicure twice a month. Usually it happened on a Saturday. It will only cost me a hundred pesos to do that. That is exactly 2 US dollars.

Whenever they get too long! I just take a nail cutter and cut them off. It barely takes me a couple of minutes. I don't take professional help for it. :) Cheers and happy Mylotting

hahaha that' right!! it;s not that long to cut our nails.. but when manicurist do this, they not only cut the nails but clean it too. Take out the cuticle and put polish on it so that it will look good.

Well I am cutting my nails once in two weeks. I think that's too regular. I used to cut every week initially because our school used to take strict actions against those who have longer nails. Since then I was completely habituated to this.

I am still a teenager and can't afford much about letting my nails manicure or pedicure for twice a month. Before, i dont care much about this. But during my graduation day, my mom ask someone to do it for me and even put colored nail polish. With that, i started to liking it. Since it is still summer, i wanted to make it colored and unfortunately, my mom will always lost her small amount of pocket money. But during schooldays, i'll probably gonna do it on my own. Maybe i just do it the simple way then, since i really don't know how to do it. HAHA.

Its actually a weekly routine for me to have my manicure and pedicure. I do it during Saturdays after shopping. Its one form of pampering myself after a week of heavy work. Anyway it is only P250 and that amount include foot's spa. In America I think this process will cost you a lot so it is but wise to do it yourself! In a way the Philippines is still a better place to live. Ha!ha!ha!

That's right my friend. The Philippines is still the best place for us who are patriotic.. hehehhe. well, the best thing is ,,, we will earn here and spend our earnings in the Philippines hahahaha..... Anyway, here in US.. some people have their own foot spa materials.. they are doing it in their home. They don;t need to go to the salon unless they need professional care. But it can be done at home.

I usually trim my fingernails every 4 to 7 days. It depends though on how fast they grow. Where i'm doing a lot of activity which involves my fingernails, them they grow faster than usual. A little scratching of the head will make them grow faster because it creates static. I'm a guy so i really don't feel the need to go on a pedicure. The nailcutter will do. lol!

Its is a proper hygiene to cut your nails once needed or you notice that they get dirty easily because they're getting too long. I tend to bite my nails before and by doing such bad mannerism a was able to maintain my nails all the time whenever wherever. but it appears that it is no longer good in the eyes of other people having such kind of mannerism.

yes, it is not good to look at people biting their nails instead of using nail cutter. it is nasty.

Hello Bebs08 I cut my nails at least once a month, at first my nails did not grow so much, but now they seem to grow all the time, I also think certain foods you may eat or drink make your nails grow faster. I notice when ever I drink milk, my nails grow super fast.

REally? yep, because milk is good for the bones and nails are part of it...

I rarely cut my fingernails, mostly because I can never let them grow! I always chew them off, my mother always gets on me, for doing this but it is a habit!

I give myself a manicure once a month and a pedicure once or twice a month. I cut my nails at least three times in a month because they grow so fast and I type all day so I try not to grow them out that long even though I love them long. I use to pay for it but I got tired of waiting to be seen and the price is ridiculous now especially for a pedicure.

I know that... price for manicure and pedicure is so high that I preferred to do it myself.. But am sure it's not good as that of professional pedicurist.

i often cut my nails everytime it goes long. i always have nail polish to make it look good but i just make sure that it looks neat and clean.i dont have enough money for the service, i know how to manicure and pedicure by myself so it's a worth savings.

Im not having my pedicure and manicure, but cutting my fingernails is one of my important hygiene routine. Im always check it if its already too long and Im very strict with the length. Its feels me uncomfortable when I have my long fingernails uncut. I usually cut it right after I took a bath. I also like girls with clean fingernails! Its part of my criteria.:)

I usually have my manicure and pedicure done at the same time when I am in the salon. I usually have manicure and pedicure once a month. I don't know how to do these by myself. I once attempted to but it failed and the result was not that nice. So I had to rush to the salon for them to fix the cuticle I almost ruined. haha. I usually cut my fingernails at home once a week because I want my nails to always look nice and clean. It is harder for me to maintain long nails.

I cut my nails weekly. I try to get a proper manicure and pedicure at least once a month. We have a sort of family heirloom in the form of our manicurist, lol. She has home serviced three generations of my family.

Oh reallY? that's what I am having before. Home service. My friend who is a manicurist will just come to my working place and do the manicure once a month... that was before when I was yet working... now? no more.. I don;t even cut my fingernails unless I am not comfortable with it anymore.

Hey Bebs! I have been doing my own nails since I was in high school! I always was able to do a really nice manicure for myself and I had nice long nails too! At least until about two years ago and then my nails started to split and break and now I don't know what has happened to them! I just cant's seem to grow them anymore! They just keep breaking down to nothing and I am so upset! I have tried everything to get them to grow and nothing is working! I just don't know what's wrong! It's the first time in my life that I don't have long and beautiful strong nails!

Oh really? you know how to beautify your own fingernail? hahah good for you. I can do that also in my own hands or feet but it will not look as good as that from the professional person who does this.
