    Men & Manicure/Pedicures

    Men - have you had these before? Women? Do you think it's 'lame' for men to have them?

    What are your thoughts?

    PS: I have had manicures and 2 pedicures before.......and it rocked!

    Re: Men & Manicure/Pedicures

    My wife made me have both a couple of weeks ago. I never had either one before. I wouldn't say it's something I'd get addicted to, and probably won't do it regularly, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The smell of nail polish in the place gave me a headache, though.

    I've never had either, so can't say ... but it sure does look relaxing. The only thing is I can't take the noxious fumes of most places ... I think you can get high off some of the smells there.

    I don't think there's any problem at all with a guy getting a manicure. Everybody, male or female, should have their cuticles trimmed and their nail beds buffed if they want.

    I've seen guys get a pedicure. It's rare, but it's good for your nails.

    I've had a few manicures and during the summer I like to get the occasional pedicure to make my feet look nice.

    Rough hands are masculine. I take pride in my rough hands, it shows that I work with them. It's hard to take a man seriously about certain topics if he has soft hands, let alone trimmed cuticles and clear nail polish.

    I see nothing wrong with guys getting mani/pedi's. I personally give props to you guys brave enough to out out for your personal grooming needs. It shows you really do give a damn what you look like (contrary to popular belief).

    I so agree with this. I know I'm a chauvinist pig, but I like rough hands on a man. They speak volumes. Anytime I see a guy in the nail shop, I immediately dismiss him as a man. Clean, trimmed nails are cool, soft hands and polish are strictly for the ladies.

    And speaking of, I get regular mani-pedi's every 2 weeks, like clockwork. As I believe real men have roughish, hard working hands, I also believe women should have nice, pretty looking fingers and toenails.

    Not lame for men to have them, nothing wrong with taking care of yourself. However, the last time I went for a mani/pedi, as I was walking in, some guy outside of the store freaked out when he saw a guy inside getting pampered. So I guess it's still a weird concept for some men to accept....

    Re: Men & Manicure/Pedicures

    A coworker of mine was going through beauty school and she needed volunteers to practice on. Know, keep in mind, you are talking to the guy who doesn't like to be touched (unless I know you, of course) and refuses to go to a chiropractor or massage therapist, no matter what the pain....

    ...she kept insisting, telling me it was nothing.

    And I liked it.

    But I've not gone back. It was a bit awkward.

    Peace,

    I'm totally agreeing with Sunygirl...man need rough hands. I can't even stand the thought of my husband touching me with soft hands. YuK!! But, feet are a different story....I cannot stand loooong, toenails, and scaly feet. I have been trying to talk him into getting a pedi for about 6 months now. He has flat feet, and they bother him all the time anyway...I'm trying to disguise the whole toenail thing with the massage they give you.

    As for me? I LOVE manicures...but, you are not touching my feet. Nobody ever does it the way I like anyway. So, every week, I do my own. Just yesterday, the guy I work with was commenting on my hot pink and black toenails...saying I need to do that professionally. (not happening)
