I got a pedicure once, even got my toe nails painted royal purple.
Now before you start judging, I'll give you the background on this escapade.
I lost my mom this past February to a terminal illness that we knew about for three years. The last mothers day i had with her, before she passed away I took her in for a mani pedi as part of her gift. When it was her turn to get up in the pedicure chair thing, as I was picking her up out of her wheelchair, she looks at me and says "I don't want to be up there alone" she was very self conscious of about people staring because of what the Parkinson's / Lou Gerhigs was doing to her motor control. So I said I'd get up there and get one with her. Then I made the joke of "what color should I get them?" she started laughing and said purple... So I told the lady to paint them purple even let me mom pick the shade of the polish.
My mom laughed for over 45 minutes straight. Laughed till she cried. You have to picture me, broad shouldered, heavily tattooed biker or Asian gang banger looking dude... Getting his toenails painted bright royal purple. Everyone in the spa was staring at us and my mom was soo happy.
Not a thing in this world could ever have made me ashamed of rocking those purple toenails under my work boots for a month. If I could have her back, I would get my toenails done every year for mothers day. Just to see her laugh like that again.
And it made my feet look pretty LOL
You also happen to be the only person so far to present a valid reason IMO. But, to each his own.
