Not from my perspective. On Sunday's, I give myself a pedicure and when he comes home, I give my husband one too. He loves them because his feet having taken such abuse in the past. We have everything you could want. Soaking salts, a foot hot tub (as I call it), plenty of brushes, massage techniques, and clippers are a given. Doing it yourself takes time and practice. Sometimes it's a hastle when you are very busy, but some consider giving themselves a pedicure soothing.
