Does Your Guy Get Manicures and Pedicures?

Posted 12/30/10 at 10:50AM by Kristen Giordani

While doing my very important morning peruse of celebrity gossip, I came across this photo of Bob Saget getting a pedicure (a random "celebrity" to mention, I know -- thank you huffingtonpost.com). And it got me thinking ... would my husband ever get a pedicure? Do a lot of dudes get pedicures?

I think no, but maybe I'm wrong. So I'm here to ask you all (hopefully a few of you are still reading despite the fact that it's the eve of New Year's Eve) -- do you know guys who get MANicures (sorry, I couldn't resist) and pedicures? Regularly? Guys who aren't celebrities or hand models -- not sure if male hand models actually exist, but I'm going to assume they do?

For full disclosure, my husband has had ONE manicure. He was a teen and his mom was trying to get him to stop biting his nails. Unfortunately the manicure didn't dissuade him from chomping away. He's still a nail biter today. But, his father did get regular manicures and his hands and nails were always well groomed-looking (not in a creepy way, but in a well-kempt businessman way).

So tell me, does your guy hit the nail salon?

Speaking of nails, have you decided which lacquer shade you'll wear tomorrow night? Here are the four nail polishes I'm debating between (I'm leaning toward the MAC hue).
And the survey says...

    Absolutely not--he wouldn't hear of it. But I like to give him facials and do his nails for him.

    It makes me super super uncomfortable when I see men at the salon. My guy would NEVER.

    I wish my husband would get a pedicure! His feet are always scaly and snag on the sheets...Yuck! Luckily, he does take care of his fingernails. He keeps them cut short and filed. I love teasing him about being a metro-sexual! Ha Ha!

    I would love it if my guy went and got a manicure and a pedicure. There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking care of yourself.
