i DON'T eat fish....


that's right....i can cross the fishy-pedi off my list of things to try!

so, here's the deal...for those of you who have been wanting to try it, or just want to hear about it from someone who has tried it...

you soak your feet in the water, which is filled with these little fish. the fish nibble (no biting!) around your feet, which is supposed to smooth your skin. does it tickle? yes, for some people more than others! and keep in mind if you do try this, the bigger the fish...the bigger the tickle! my friend lori, who came with me, was in hysterics because it tickled her so much. for me, it tickled, but it really felt more like "pins and needles", when your foot falls asleep. it tickled me most when they would swim in between my big toe and second toe...and when they were around my ankles. so, you soak in the fishy water for 20 minutes (or however long you purchase it for!)...they then dry your feet off and you move to a regular pedi chair for the rest of your pedicure.

i had purchased a discounted daily deal for this...and that's definitely the way to go if you're going to TRY it out. that way, you don't feel like you've spent a whole lot of money, if you end up not liking it.
all in all....i'm not sure it's something i'll do again. not because i didn't like it, but because i'm not really sure my feet are any smoother than without 30 little fishes eating my dead skin for breakfast!!!
