Manicure Sets For The Modern Man

Just how important is a good manicure?

If you clicked on this, you’ve got the right idea.

Imagine this. You’re sitting face to face with the partner you’ve been patiently waiting to take out for quite some time. Fit? Fresh. Limited edition sneakers? Copped. Gel in hand? Okay, maybe we went too far with that one… or maybe not if you’re Pauly D., But you get the point. Everything seems to be aligned, but one element is lagging. The person at the other end of the table takes one good look at your nails and goes nope, not for me. Shallow? Maybe but what self-assured person wants to stare at crusty, untrimmed nails all night? Plus, with androgynous legends like David Bowie, Jared Leto, and even Freddie Mercury paving the pathway for progressive expressions of masculinity, don’t be afraid to rock some color on those nails. It’s hot, trust me.

That loops me back around to the importance of nail grooming. Apart from the obvious showering, shaving, and hair trim, it can be argued that nail care is as essential, if not more so. Freshly groomed nails signify good hygiene and tell others, “I care about my appearance.” Not to mention, partners interpret a good manicure as a symbol of poise and cleanliness. If you knew all this already and are just looking for some new kit ideas, cheers, but if this info comes as brand spanking new to you, don’t stress; we’ve got you covered.
