Pedi

I have never had a pedicure. Crazy right? When the "fish pedicure" came out at this salon in Alexandria, I was still living in DC & I should have gone!
I think a few more places other than DC area now have these pedicures..has anyone done it? If not, would you do it? I still travel to DC quite a bit and may treat myself to one of these.

My dad sent me a video about this! I think it's so weird!

hahaha! This reminds me of going camping as a kid! We'd wade into a creek, find a nice rock to sit on, and if we were very still, the minnows would come and nibble at our legs. It tickled so much I could hardly sit still! =) Good times!

I do regular pedicures, but I wouldn't go near this...too weird for me! :)

Meg said...

You wouldn't catch me alive at this place! I wouldn't be able to stand them nibbling at my toesies

Shea said...

I am weird about people touching my feet let alone a fish eating the dead skin. eek.

Natalie said...

I would completely do it. Although, my feet are REALLY ticklish and it's hard enough to get the dead skin scraped off with the peeler thing. I can only imagine how hard it is to let the fish do it. But I would at least try it.

I was in China last fall and my friend took us to a really nice spa. We put on our bathing suits and soaked in different pools. The final pool was a huge pool of fish that nibble at your dead skin. I did it! It was really ticklish! I think I held my breath the entire time. I think it's fun to try!

I've only had 2 pedicures in my life and it took all the strength I had to get through just having people touch my feet (they are EXTREMELY ticklish). NO WAY would I stick my toes into a basin of FISH. no. way.

Jon and Steph said...

Oh my are you kidding. That would freak me out! How weird, I just go the willies!

Mrs. S. said...

I just had my first "normal" pedicure and I LOVED it. My paint is coming off and I really want to go back to the place to do it....hmmm...
I would do the fish thing. It isn't like they can eat your toes off. I think it would be okay.

I would never in a million years do this! I'm so weird about the ocean for this exact reason...I hate feeling the fish on me!! I could hardly stand to look at the picture!!

On the other hand....let me know how it goes! :)

The Pink Potpourri said...

Abbi said...

La vie est belle! said...

I couldn't handle it!

Laurie said...

Never would I do it. Pedis yes, fish nipping on me no thanks.

Jules said...

I love getting pedicures, but I don't know if I could do this. I think all of the fish would creep me out.

I've heard it's great though.

carissa... brown eyed fox said...

Hi! I just came across your blog today - so cute. I moved away from Alexandria in September, after the fishy pedi started. There are few things I love more in life than a good pedicure...but this one TOTALLY creeps me out!!!

I am Meggie Poo. said...

What if you squished a fish or one died when you put your foot in there? I would feel absolutely terrible! This procedure it too dangerous for my delicate emotions :)

Cari said...
