A Party Toe

Guys, I did something that I normally would never, ever do!!
I allowed my cousin to drag me to her nail salon for a pedicure.
Yes, that's right!  I totally cheated on my nail for the first time ever in my life!!!!  For shame...

I sat down in the unfamiliar chair, when the nail technician asked me a question.
The problem was, I had no clue what she was asking me.
All I was able to make out was "For free!  For free!"
Eventually I just agreed to whatever it was that she was asking.
I mean, you can only say "excuse me" so many times!!


...and that's how I ended up with a party toe...

I'll be sticking with my regular nail salon from now on.
I'll just confess and plead until they forgive my adultery like behavior.  Sigh...

Did you ever cheat on your regular spot?
Spill the juice, people!  I totally want to know about your "party toe" experience!!

    1. Really? Oh no. I find someone I love and stick with them for life. For example, Gail does my hair and god forbid anyone else tries to touch my locks ;) My inner kung foo would come out!!! lol

      hahahaha @ the party toe!! I came into work and the people that noticed were like what is that!? Even Biff screamed "Omg, look at your toe!!" when he noticed. Sigh...

      Free or not, never again!

    2. I should have had a pedi party just so you could show off your party toe! lol....We'll have one in August for the last one, so be prepared! haha.

      Delete
    3. LMAO Right? I'll have to get another party toe for the pedi party! lol Well, that would mean cheating twice and getting another two weeks of deranged looks by the Japanese... hahaha

      Delete
    4. LOL oh that would be quite the party. I'll see how party hoppin I can get my toes to be, maybe they'll have a nice smiley face on them hahaha And I think the Japanese give you deranged looks party toe or not haha

  3. I am sure that I must have cheated on a salon at some point. I actually had the best hair dresser ever back in my early twenties. He was the best. Oh Kent, how I miss you. Anyway, he moved to California after a couple of years and I never found anyone who was as good as him, so even though he left me, I still feel like I cheating...despite it being him. How sad am I? It has been at least 15 years since he has touched my hair. If he was still doing it, it would probably look way better right now.

    1. Eep!!! For my hair, I would move to California. lol I sort of want to meet Kent now... hahahaha

      You never found a new hair goddess??? This is a sad story :(

      Delete
    2. Oh believe me, I seriously considered it! And no, my quest for the next Kent continues to this day...sad, sad me...

      Delete
    3. lol I would have already been there girl ;) hahaha

      I'd put up a wanted ad with a picture of a hair do done by Kent. Wanted: Hairstylist that can recreate this. Client list and references required. lol

  4. Wow, that IS a party going on!

    My step-mom is my hair stylist, so there is no cheating allowed ;)

    2. No, I walked into a nail salon and screamed it. You see it was a joke about nail salons being owned by Orientals and.....nevermind.

    2. LOL - During the "good ol' days" I had a place that I frequented in Brentwood; we'll leave that for my blog ha ha ha!!!

  13. I've cheated on my hair dresser before. I felt so guilty! ha.

    Love the pedicure. So, does the party toe put you in the party mood? Make you do things you normally wouldn't do? lol.... Do party toes have more fun? :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nails are one thing, Betsy...but your hair dresser?!?! Say it ain't so!!!! That's such a risky thing to put in the hands of an amateur. :( :( Hopefully your hair dresser forgave you. Did you bring her/him flowers at least???

      You like the pedicure??? lol You're the first one to like my party toe. lol

      You know, I have been feeling more like a party mood!! Party toes do have more fun :) :) lol

      Delete
    2. Well, you and I know that blondes do not...so I wondered about the toe. hahaha...Love what they can do with decals and stickers now. It's fun! And I think the colors are fine...there is that wine color in the party toe, so it's all coordinated! :)

      Delete
    3. Oh the hairdresser....I got a bad cut and a bad perm. Lesson learned. Sigh. This was like 20 years ago.

      Delete
    4. Did you go blonde at some point? We would like some pictures of that please :) I think you would make a lovely blonde!! lol

      Oh, yes, we never ever ever cheat on hair dressers...like ever... :)

      Delete
    5. LOL Petsy went blonde? Oh that would be too fun to see. I guess never be a cheat.

    6. See, Betsy, the public demands it!! lol

  14. Oh, I wish I was young enough to rock that party toe!!! I cheated on my nail salon once and it was a horrible experience. The guy was so rough and mean so I blasted the place on FaceBook. Lots of local friends had similar experiences and they have since lost lots of business. Ya gotta treat people with some respect or it's gonna come back to bite ya!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LMAO I don't think anyone at any age should rock a party toe. hehehe

      See what happens when we cheat? It's never as good as the original and we risk them not taking us back ;)

  16. I rarely let anyone touch my feet, but there is only one salon I go to when I do. One is by my folks' house in Elk Grove and even if I only go in once a year, they ALWAYS remember me. That's huge to me.

    Replies
    1. Ohh...I love a great pedicure, but it has to be in my place b/c I know it's immaculate. Cleanliness is key!! lol

      That's always nice when people make an effort to remember their clients. A friendly atmosphere will always bring people back. I think you should treat yourself to your very own party toe this weekend ;) lol

      Delete
  17. When it comes to my hair salon, I'm loyal and I'm a good tipper too. You build a bond with your hairdresser, learn about each others lives, dish gossip, share recipes, so there's no way I'd cheat on mine. And there's no way to hide it either, they know as soon as you walk in the door.

    I've never, ever had a pedicure or had my nails done. Now that's sad!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, your hair dresser becomes like you friend! I love mine. We yap and yap and yap!! It makes me think though..are they really our friends or just giving us a friendly experience??? lol Either way, I love mine and wouldn't change our relationship for the world. :)

      Anne, I thought we decided you would change that!! A mani/pedi is almost due... You deserve it!

      Delete
    2. oh, I love to do the gossiping on city's bigshots with my plastic surgeon :) She always has the sauciest of stories :) And my dentist too knows how to give a good info on the jetset :)

      I once tried having a pedicure but couldn't shake off the notion that it is a bit humiliating to sit above someone who has to deal with your feet. I know it's a stupid feeling, but I feel uncomfy, those people seem like poor slaves to me, even though they're not...

      Delete
    3. Ohh, I bet she does!!! They probably get the elite cliental and they spill all the juice under that laughing gas ;) lol

      hmm...I never thought of it that way before! I can definitely see where you are coming from with that, but I see them at beauticians working their magic. You see, they are about 5000 times more talented than I am! Well, that and I have metal rods in my spine that prevent me from bending down and painting my toes...

      Delete
  18. hey, j--long time no visit. hope you're doing great! sometimes it's fun to do something out of the ordinary. your toes look amazing! i don't have a party toe story to tell... i am sure i do.. but after having kids, my memory is sooooo bad!!

    hope you're having a lovely week so far. :)

      Hope you're having a lovely weekend as well :)

  19. hahaha I never really go get my nails done, so I don't have any stories to tell. I never go to the same hairdresser multiple times either. Maybe I'll find somebody I like enough to go back to and I'll have stories to tell later? haha

    Good luck when you go back to your regular place. I hope they forgive you.

    1. You never go to the same hair dresser??? Girl, you're missing out on one of the best relationships you'll ever have in your life. You and your hair dresser should form a special bond. I suggest you run out there and find one right now. It's heaven when you sit down and they already have an idea what you want to do with your hair!

      They'll forgive me...eep eep eep :( :( :(

  22. I just went away for the weekend with my daughter and we both had a pedicure (the main reason for me was to sit down for an hour and stop her shopping!). I got each foot painted a different colour and I love them :) Love your party toe too.

  26. Do you mean you couldn't understand her because she had an accent or something, or you didn't know enough about toe-ology? I hate when they ask me all kinds of questions when I get my hair cut. I want to get my hair cut, not take a quiz!

    1. She had a very heavy accent and I couldn't make out what she was trying to say.

      LOL Ohh, you're so right!! Why do we need to be interviewed about everything? Ever go to the diner and ask for an egg sandwich? How do you want your eggs cooked...what kind of cheese...what bread do you prefer...pepper or no pepper...FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, just surprise me :) lol

  31. I think you are on to something with the party toe nomenclature.

    Since I would have nothing to add to your discussion, this is where I say: I saw a columnist predict that the Pats would go undefeated and lose in the Super Bowl this year. I could not disagree more. I can see them losing a few games and winning the Super Bowl. Good offense with some new additions, and an improved defense--they will be tough to beat this year.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh, I love this and totally agree with you!! They will not go undefeated. I think they will lose 2-3 games this season and I hope they win the Super Bowl. Brady needs this win! Besides, it may also be my man Welker's last season as a WR. Plus, did you hear that they told Gronk he has to calm down? They are preparing the beasts to be let out of the cage!! I can't wait for this season to start :) :)

  34. I love your party toes :-)

    My daughter treated me for a manicure once. That was the first and last time. I chose bright pink with black stripes. Don't ask!! It was great at first but after a while it got on my nerves. I bought some acetate to try and get it off. I had to cut the false nails off as well and it took me hours to get the stuff off my finger nails.

    Afterwards my nails were weak for ages. I haven't been back since.

    1. Thanks, June!!

      Really? Yes, fake nails can leave your real nails very weak and thin. But at the same time, the fake ones look so pretty :) I keep mine as short as humanly possible and painted with a bright color. I don't do well with long nails... lol

  36. Jax, I so agree about the excuse me thing. I start to feel like an asshole after a while, and just go with it.

    On another note, I totally cheated on my nail salon (where I get my eyebrows waxed) with a convenient salon before a wedding I attended. I ended up looking permanently surprised through the whole wedding. I will never cheat on my waxer again.
