Do You Stay Polished During Winter?

Even though it happens every year, part of me wishes I could avoid winter altogether by hiding in the back of my closet with my summery shoes. Better yet, in a closet of a resort on a tropical island . . . but I digress.

When trading sandals for boots, it can be harder to justify spending time (or money) on pedicures. Don't get me wrong, I still treat myself to an at-home buff and polish from time to time, but since my feet hide in boots, it's not a big deal if my piggies aren't perfectly painted. Do you change it up with the switching seasons?

i stay polished year round and enjoy getting pedicures regardless of the season but if i get chips or whatever i let it linger a lot longer than when in sandals! i certainly don't get nearly as many or as regularly as in sunny months!

Year round! You never know who is going to see your feet.

In the f/w season I usually just let my toe-nails go bare (since I polish them all s/s long.) Sometimes I apply a clear coat to give them alittle gloss or if I am in the right mood I apply some OPI polish.

I never pedicure, partly because I do a good enough job so why would I spend the money (once in a while for a special occasion or just to treat myself), but mostly because I like to change my color all the time. I get bored and I like to experiment and I like change, so of course I still do this during the winter. plus, I live in SoCal, so it's stays warm for a lot of the winter (it was 89 degrees this afternoon!).

they stay polished for those random moments like an indoor pool party,spa, or jacuzzi get together or even a date. your bound to take off your shoes eventually so i like to be prepared. i hate the look of unpolished toe nails..idk why but its a major thing for me

I have to stay painted year round, but I do it myself. I can't afford weekly manicures.

I'm a DIY girl all the way. I also have some sort of polish on my finger and toe nails all the time. Ditto for me ahamila, I have super ticklish feet, I don't like anyone touching them. Also I don't have any money to drop $30 a pop when I can do it myself.

I love the way my feet look when my toes are polished, so, yep, year-round for me. And I do my own pedi. (Saves $30 - with tip - for a couple bottles of wine!!)

I live in Montana, so, we wear socks and shoes (and/or snowboots) all winter. And, we wear slippers inside, as well. So, unless I happen to be at a hot springs or in the shower, my feet are covered. So, I try to do the occasional polish in the winter (if I am dressing up or going on a vacation), but on a regular basis it just seems futile:).

I always try out new colors during the winter because people won't really see them. I like experimenting! I DIY because I am a college kid who can't afford a salon treatment.

I don't stress about it. I still DIY pedicures during the winter, but only polish whenever the mood strikes me.

Ehm...I am never polished...I know, not good and very unladylike...

I always do my own pedicures. I am far too ticklish and do not enjoy trying my best not to kick the pedicurist in the face. I just don't like my toes without polish. But I live in Arizona, where it's flip flops and peep toe heels year round.

I take a break from polish in the winter, unless I have a special occasion. We always stay at a water-park/hotel at Christmas, so I have to break out the polish for running around at the pool.

why bother? no one sees my toes.

Yes. Not because I care about what they look like. It just makes me feel good to have the pedi. Perfect way to relax.

In LA we don't really have "winter" so open-toe shoe weather can spring up on at any minute. That's why I'm always prepared.

I keep my feet polished all the time. It doesn't take much maintenance so it works out. It makes me somewhat like my feet more...I hate my toes.
