Pedicure Party and Giveaway #1 of 2013

 It's time for a pedicure party!
This was so much fun last year that I wanted to do it again!
But last year we started at the first hint of warm weather and
then those of us in the Midwest were wearing our woolly socks
over our pretty toe nails because it got cold again!
So I waiting until June just to make sure we could show
off our pedi's in summer sandals and flip flops!
And hopefully it isn't too cold yet for those of you way
down south where autumn is about to turn to winter!


Here's a collage of pretty nails just for inspiration!
You can do all 20 nails or just your toes.
Be fancy with patterns, colors, stickers, or just the basic paint!
You can go get it professionally done or do it yourself!


And for a giveaway, one person who participates will receive the prize 
above!  A four-way foot wand with brush, pumice, callose remover
and file.  And two full size bottles of Maybelline Color Show
polish.  Two blue tones ~ Turquoise Paradise and Midnight Swim!
And yes, I'll mail this anywhere in the world so all can participate!


No matter what shape your nails are in,


Your toes will thank you after you pamper them!


Guys can participate, too!
Who says guys can't have nice looking feet?


...or not!  haha  We don't care...having fun is the goal here!
Who can forget Pat's entry with his Post-It note toes?
Or Silver Fox's cat, Orson, showing his claws



Even if guys do it a little differently than we girls do,
it's the end result that matters!
And if I guy wins, I'll give him the option of a more
manly prize, to be determined if necessary!



So all you have to do is paint your nails between now and
Monday, June 24th and snap a picture!
On Monday the 24th, post your pretty toes on your blog
and link up here to join the party.

If you just did your nails, then take a picture now
and you're all set!  We'll see you back here in 2 weeks!




Here's some more fun inspiration!
If you need more, or some easy instructions, look on Pinterest!
I have to try that Ombre French Tip some time soon!
I love that!

  13. I hope the summer camp works out well for the boys. I know the first day always brings some anxiety (among the parents, especially). Good luck!

    1. Well, I've just arrived home after going for the first half day. It went well...but I'm exhausted! Lots to think about and worry about....I think they will do well...probably better than if I'm there worrying over them. ha.

  14. ooh, love the flipflops in the first picture. I still haven't started wearing flipflops this year, since we've been having a strange summer so far (not that I complain) but I do have two new pairs ready for the runway :) I bought me dark violet ones and black ones with lime green label.

    3. Hey! You're all set for the 24th! Your flip flops are great but I have to say I think I like those black ones the best! Cute, feet, too! ha. I hope you'll link up for the party!

      Delete
    4. can't link up since my blog isn't of the private nature :) But I too prefer the black ones (they're quite stylish and attract views). The violet ones are much more comfy, though :) - say my cute feet LOL

  17. Looking forward to the post. (I just posted, btw.)

  18. This sounds like a lot of fun! Although I really hate feet, mine and everyone else's. I do like to keep my nails painted in the summer when I wear lots of cute summer shoes. I don't do any decorations beyond that though. I'll have to see if I can find some decals or something, I guess.
