Don't Wear Those Flip-Flops 'Til You've Tried This Funky Toe Treatment (VIDEO)

ingrown toenailsIt's sandal season and that means you probably want your feet looking their best! If you've gotten a little too aggressive with your DIY pedicure and ended up with an ingrown toenail, you're probably thinking, "Ewww!!" and "Help!!" Enter: the Japanese Makizume Robo Ingrown Toenail Fixer!


With two prongs and a screw mechanism, this device claims to get you back on the right foot (pun intended) within 30 minutes. Warning: This video is not for the squeamish, but we're mostly moms here, so that shouldn't be a problem, right?

After you attach the prongs under your nail, you'll tighten that screw thingy into place. Next, you'll soak your foot in warm water for 20 minutes. (We like the sound of that part, right?) When your nail has softened, tighten the "fixer" some more and blow-dry your toenail. Remove the tool and you should be good to go!

OK, so it sort of resembles a medieval torture device, but if it makes your toe feel and look better, it's worth it, right? Speaking of how much it's worth, this little gadget will set you back $315! So you'd probably have to be either pretty desperate or a chronic-ingrown-toenail sufferer to make this worth your while!
