I'd LOVE to give my hubby a mani or pedi but he just wont let me. He's a builder with rough hands and horrendous feet - all hard skin and cracks the size of the Cheddar Gorge across his heels from wearing work boots. The cracks in his heels are sooo bad that he's often in pain with them but will he let me do a pedi - not on your life. After nearly 6 years of being married I've given up - I just let him suffer (unfortunately NOT in silence!).Rosie said:I too practice on my husband. He is not overly fussed about a manicure (I think he feels more butch with bad cuticles and ragged nails) but he LOVES having a pedicure. After I did the last one he has waffled on for over a week about how lovely and soft his feet are and how much he appreciates me grating off the hard skin. Not so pleased however at the thought of having pictures of his feet (not the prettiest) displayed as a case study in my portfolio. Only trouble is I can't practice the massage sequence on him as soooo ticklish that he ends up rolling about on the floor in fits!
