I got a terrible pedicure. After three days, the polish was dull and on the verge of chipping, and my feet looked scruffier than before I started. Determined to salvage it without starting over completely, I put on a fresh coat of Sally Hansen clear polish, covered my cuticles in Barielle cuticle cream, and wore Vaseline-and-socks to bed.
It has now been three WEEKS (I only did the maintenance procedure one time), and my toes look better than they did on day one. My nails are shiny and chip-free. I'm thinking quick, cheap pedicures and a little extra work at home may be the way to go.
