Guys and Manicures (w/poll)

So my roommate came home with his wife and was showing off his new manicure. I found it quite feminine of him and told him I'd never do that... Then I saw how nice it actually came out and it got me thinking. Im not talking about nail polish and stuff, just cleaning up the nails and cuticles and all the rough skin and crap that guys have on our hands (most of us at least )

So I asked my girlfriend what she thought and her response was "I think you need some time to sort things out in your life." Obviously it was said in a joking way, but she still meant that I was crazy and that a guy getting a manicure is totally gay.

So I came here to good ol' TW to ask the world what they thought. Females opinions welcome as well

Please discuss, and feel free to vote.

My girlfriend has been trying to get me to go with her and get my toes done. Ill admit they need it. She wants to me to get my hands done too, but my nails are ridiculous short so there would be no point.

I don't wanna go, but I thought about it.

haha my GF told me it would make more sense to get a pedicure instead. I said how so, and she said so that I dont get ingrown nails -__-

My nails are super super short too (bad habit of biting im trying to break) so I dont think it would do me much good either.

my stepbrother gets both manicures and pedicures and where does he work? ohh that's right, Bloomingdale's. I think it'd be to difficult for him to pick up a shovel.

Ummm, no. My sister did manicures and pedicures as a side business for a while. She tried like hell to get me to try it. I told her real men don't get manicures and pedicures. She commented that my cousin gets them. My response: "I rest my case". Never saw my cousin with his hands dirty or doing anything that requires sweat.

Took me awhile to build these callouses, I'm not letting them go!

My wife always bugs me to go with her and get a "mani and pedi, it's not gay" but there's no way in hell I'll ever go.....have no desire!

Not for me. I also think it's a waste of time and money for females to go have that done. My daughter doesn't have a pot to pee in but wouldn't hesititate to pay 30 bucks on her nails.

My ex bought me a manicure and a pedicure once. I went cause it was free. Since they included massages it was awesome. I couldnt have really cared about the clean up stuff. i wash my hands.

like going for a body massage basically. it kicked ass to be pampered but I wouldnt waste my own money on anything besides a massage.

Your room-mate pees sitting down, I'll bet. Its kind of a pre-requisite for getting a manicure.

You can do whatever you want with your hands....free country and all that. I don't even wear my wedding ring on my hands cause I destroy them if I do (my hands get into some tight and icky spots all the time, plus capacitors), so a manicure would really be trying to put lipstick on a pig.

#1 It's ghey. Is my opinion. WTF do you care how nice your hands and nails look? My hands look like shit right now, because they are dry, and my knuckles are cracked cause of it.

#2 it's still ghey, but the only way you could get away with it, is say your girlfriend wanted to do it herself to your hands. My wife when we first started dating, used to like to cut my fingernails. So whatever, by all means, cut away. Now I'm back to ripping them off

I don't object to them and don't think it is too machismo to get one, I just have better things to spend money on. That being said, it is not gay to get one or think about getting one, no one should judge you on that. What is gay, is starting a poll about whether or not you should get your nails done Nancy.

My wife cuts my nails and toe nails if I don't bite them off first (finger nails). She mainly cuts my toe nails cause I keep attacking her with them at night. She always holds puntang in the balance to coax me into it though

Heck I don't even get manicures. As long as you keep yourself clean and trimmed you should be okay. It doesn't take much to have healthy finger tips. Besides, depending upon the work you do, it's nonsense to spend the money to only to thrash the work.

I work in a large cooler, in a produce warehouse with me handling dirty wet/frozen cases that can weigh up to 70lbs. Lifting, sorting, inspecting produce and exposure to moisture does awful things to hands/nails skin. Granted I wear three different types of gloves, working with hands in this type of job will tear up any kind of manicure I get.

i wouldn't pay to get it done, but if someone else is gonna pay, why not?

some of you guys must be insecure or something. they're not cutting your nuts off and painting your dick pink, they're just cleaning your nails.
