Here is how the story goes: It is embarrassing to admit, but in the last five years I have developed a horrible, painful problem with ingrown toenails.
It is the main reason I stopped going for pedicures. They were just too painful to endure. I have wanted to leap from the chair a couple of times and sprint out the door. I have had two podiatrists perform very painful in office “digs.” The last time I paid a doctor for relief, it was $75!! That was around the holidays.
I remember that my dad also struggled with this and I have wondered before if it is hereditary! Anyway, some of my sweet students gave me a manicure for Christmas at a nearby salon, but one I have never been to.
I went to get my manicure and then during the process they asked if I wanted a pedicure…to which I responded, “Oh no…it is too painful. I have to do my toes myself because of ingrown toenails!” The owner just smiled and said, “You will feel no pain here.” Well, at that time, I did not believe her.

Toes by Kym
So, it was months later when I was in great pain with ugly nails that I thought, “Well, I might as well give the salon a try. It is cheaper than the doctor and I at least get pretty polish there!!” That was when I met Kym….he is a genius! He takes care of the ingrowns and somehow….I feel nothing! He is truly a master. I have now decided that no pain is worth budgeting these pedicures into my essentials for the month.
|I am happy with happy toes!!|
Does anyone else experience this at a salon or are you still dealing with the problems other ways? I will say the last salon I went to did not have a Kym…in fact, just the opposite. For now, I am his loyal follower! You may not have a Kym, but I am here to say there is hope that one exists!!
Happy Tuesday to everyone!!
