In Which She Writes the Most Trivial Post of All Time

In case you are waiting for the next profound topic here at Musings of a Housewife, well, this isn’t going to be it.

Let’s discuss the French Pedicure.

First of all, I admit it.  I’m a fan.  For several reasons.

1) It’s so simple and clean looking. 

2) It never clashes with your outfit. 

3) It does away with the five to thirty minutes of hemming and hawing over which nail color to choose when you arrive at the salon.

4) It never looks different on your nails than it does in the bottle, thus eliminating the disappointment of choosing the wrong color.

But, occasionally, as I admire my toes, it occurs to me how ridiculous it is that we pay all outdoors for a pedicure that intentionally makes it appear as though our toenails are overgrown. 

I mean, who leaves a quarter-inch of white nail tip showing when they trim their toenails?  That’s gross.  When it gets to that point, that’s when I bring out the heavy-duty toenail clippers. 

So why, oh why do we paint on a white line to appear as if the toenail is longer than it really is?

And yet.  I still like it. 

And evidently I’m not alone, judging from the number of French pedicures I see walking around these days. 

So what do you say, Internets?  Yay or Nay for the French pedicure?
