Mens Nail Care
Every woman is checking out your fingernails when she first meets you–it’s like the shoe test,. There is also a Mens Nail Care test.
So if your idea of nail maintenance is occasionally gnawing off any sharp edges (and you don’t live with a family of bears) tidy them up at home with these tips. It time for ” Mens Nail Care.”
1. Seriously, Though, Stop Biting Them
“It’s disgusting and makes nails brittle. Nubby fingers make for a weak handshake, and accidentally scratching someone with a snagglenail on the release is kind of stomach churning.
2. Do a Quick Clip and File
Unless you’re a finger-style guitarist, nails shouldn’t extend over your fingers. There are clippers with grooves and a wide grip like this (Ace For Men Fingernail Clipper) if the drugstore variety feel too flimsy, just follow the natural shape of your nail when evening out edges with an emery board.
3. Scrub Up
Soak hands in warm soapy water for two minutes, and then dip a nail brush (Casewell Masey’s looks like a mini shoe brush) into the water and start scrubbing the tips of your fingers to remove any dirt.
4. Rub in Some Hydration
A heavy-duty hand cream will keep major calluses from forming and protect you from cracks as the weather turns cold. Buckler’s Chapped Skin Remedy is unscented so you can reapply throughout the day or at work without smelling like a tween.
5. Go Pro, Just Once
“It makes maintenance so much easier,. Athletes (like Victor Cruz) and celebs do it. And you don’t have to get caught at the corner salon like Tim Tebow or Ian Somerhalder–there are a ton of testosterone filled spots (like Truman’s in NYC, which calls their nail service “hand shake maintenance”) to clean up your cuticles and do other things you can’t do to yourself–like give a glorious hand massage.
Remember what I say “If it makes you feel like a million dollars then file it under “P” for PERFECTION!” LOVE PEACE PASSION BABY – Glass the Tramp
