It would have been nice to know about these before my trip to London a few years ago! I love getting pedicures because it makes my feet feel soft and pretty afterward. I think I might even like pedicures more than manicures because I get pretty thick callouses that need to come off every so often. I can also handle nail polish on my toes a lot easier than on my fingernails. http://www.nails-plus.com/pedicures.htm
