    I've been reading about men in corporate settings getting manicures more often now a days.
    What do you all think about it?
    I'm thinking about trying it, 1) because I'm working on my professional image, and 2) because I've got a nail biting problem, and it might keep me from biting

    Just got back from my first manicure...

    When I walked in, the ladies looked at me like i was lost- they've probably never had a man in their shop...
    Anyways, I sat down, and got started by soaking my fingers in some warm soapy water, and the lady started trimming the other hand
    I'm sure you all know how manicures work, so i wont go into much detail. it wasn't 'relaxing' or 'therapeutic' like people say, but damn, my nails look nice!
    i think the biggest improvement came from the use of a small set of pliers to cut my cuticles (? or whatever it is that they cut)...

    My ex gave me a manicure once. She said she thought it was sexy when guys cared about their looks and detailing, so I let her.

    it's relaxing to me. I get a nice hand massage before she does it and everytime I go the chicks flirt with me and shit, it's awesome. they have these really tall mirrors with the long light things at the top, I don't know where they get them but I need them they make look me so good.

    next to I go I'm going take my shirt off and flex like a motherfucker

    I merged your two manicure threads together, since there is no reason to have two separate threads about you getting a manicure. In the future, please don't create new threads for updates

    I know a few guys who get manicures. Their hands always look nice, but in my opinion guys can get away with crappy nails. Its not like I look at my boyfriend's hands and think "wow you really need a manicure!" I don't think it will do much for you in the corporate world either.
