Thread: mani pedi

Where could I take 4 little girls (aged 6-10) for manicures or pedicures? Initially I was thinking Watercolor spa (since our home is there) but I'm guessing that might be rather pricey. Any other options?

Beach Bound, there are a number of places off 30A where you could take them, though I'm not sure of pricing. I think there's a salon in the WaterColor Publix shopping center? I know there's one in the Grand Boulevard shopping center. I seldom get them myself, but I am going to splurge on a pedi now that sandal season is here.
BR, I see nothing wrong with having a girl's mani pedi day on vacation. I'm going to chalk your snarky comment up to giving up alcohol for Lent.Follow your bliss and the Universe will open doors where there were only walls. ~ Joseph Campbell

Is it to much to do- to teach little girls, who are going to grow up to be the moms, the house cleaners, and probably the bread winners later in life, that it is OK to do something for themselves? I don't think so...just make sure you take them somewhere that is known for following the correct procedures! Have fun...

You know I'm right. Parents of children that age should not feel superior and entice their children into a false sense of superiority because their parents can afford to pay for pampering that only those who have worked hard enough to afford such privileges can indulge themselves in. Those who have inherited such money just sicken me unless they clearly donate enough money to the underprivileged that they can feel comfortable indulging themselves in such extravagant pursuits.

BB wasn't in the political arena and fair game to all. BB was asking a valid question based on their morals NOT yours.
You were way off base calling them "little biotches" and quite frankly owe BB an apology.
Trust me, if you would have called my daughters that you would now be a pair of gator boots.....

Well ... just bet you have never bought any child a present before that the child did not have the money to pay for themselves...because all little children of the ages of 6 to 10 hold down jobs...and have their own money .......and yes those with should help those without even if they are helping small kids just make themselves fell better about themselves....and when those arround you inherit-they can give what they would have spent on you to charity and they will feel good about it and so will you...life can be so good sometimes!!!!

BB, please know that BR does not speak for all of us, or for any of us, for that matter. I hope you and your girls enjoy your vacation - mani pedi and all.

Sure wish someone would answer BB's question. I'm bringing a group of graduating 8th graders down in May and I think they would really enjoy a group mani pedi.

I was reared in a family where money was no object. Yet my first professional mani/pedi was done when I was in my 40's when my husband and I had accumulated enough wealth to pay for it ourselves.
I had infertility issues and spoiled our miracle child to the max. We have produced a child whom we worship the ground she walks on. That is our mistake, not hers. I am just saying that parents who make the mistake we made of spoiling our children are doing their children a disservice because these children expect privileges that they take for granted and do not appreciate.
Just wait until these 6-10 year olds are old enough to plan a wedding and expect a $10,000 photographer, a $6,000 dress, etc. After all, they got mani/pedis at a young age. And their expectations increase exponentially as they get older.
I don't feel as though I owe BB an apology. I think she will thank me for my advice when her little girls who expect salon treatments grow to the age where they expect celebrity weddings.

I have absolutely NO respect for anyone who will call 6-10 year olds "little biotches" and then not apologize.
You are definitely NOT a lady in my book, but rather a tramp.......

Moms who provide spa treatments for their young children are only doing this for their own vanity. Doing so turns their young girls into little biotches who have unrealistic expectations. Like the 10-year-old wearing head-to-toe Tory Burch that our daughter photogged at a concert recently. Hope this little girl graduates from a top 50 university and makes a lot of money, or marries a rich dude, or inherits a lot of money. Otherwise she'll be into lots of disappointment and therapy because most people are not so privileged.
Don't shoot the messenger.
BTW my goal has never been to be a "lady." An intelligent female is constantly disparaged and has to constantly "prove herself" as being worthy. I'd rather be known as an intelligent human being which I am by all who know me. Thank God.

You don't know BB from sickem' yet you feel that you have the right to call the little girls "biotches"? Who are you to throw out your holier than thou attitude when by your own admission you FAILED at raising your own child through your actions.....pahleese....

While I am baffled this conversation is ongoing, I can not resist one last try. We heard about what happened to you and your child. Others have weathered these storms. I have one child-can have nomore and her father has died. Her rich grandmother took everything from her. I tried to give her everything I could to make her feel special and my daughter understood that I gave up for her. She was accepted into the hardest to get into schools in the country and graduates college in May. Some kids understand things later than others. Hopefully yours will learn this too and do well in life. So things do not always turn out bad when people are made to feel good about themselves. And the little girls are not "B's," they are just little girls.....

Their # is 850-233-1111. I know it's not 30A, but they used to have a place down here and just couldn't keep up with the 30A rents!
Hope you have fun!

Ocean Nails is a good place to go. It's on 393 South before Gulf Place. They have mani/pedi combo's starting at $40. See if they will give you a better deal since they are little girls.

To Beach Bound and others:
I apologize for the statements that I have made. I try to be perfect, yet clearly I am a failure as a human being.
Have a great trip to the beach.

[QUOTE=MissCritter;656848]And frankly, I'm a bit dumbfounded by your position because your posts for the past couple of years paint you as among the most materialistic on this board.
Amen. Thank you. People who have money and constantly brag about it don't seem to realize that others see them as petty and classless.
You young ladies enjoy your mani/pedi party and have a ball!
The Following User Says Thank You to ThirtyAGal For This Useful Post:
I don't think ONE group manicure/pedicure on vacation is the road to ruin.
Now if you must take them somewhere w/ valet parking, where they wash your hair w/ bottled water, or start spending hundreds on one trip, then BR may have a point.

Angel Nails in the Water Color Plaza next to Publix may have a kids special. They are very nice people and do a great job.
