    @MsGinkgo:  No and he doesn’t need to (he’s much better about his nails than I am…I’m a biter) – but my 80 year old grandfather does! Pedicures, too! He goes with a couple of guy friends.

    Mine has never (that I know of) gone to get a pro mani. He has pretty nice hands and nails though so maybe that is why.

    He does, however, like it when I give him a mani. I just use all my normal stuff (file, buffer, cuticle trimmer, nice lotion) and then no polish. I probably only do this a couple times a year but maybe you could offer to at least shape his nails a bit before the wedding so they don’t look all raggedy.

    @MsGinkgo:  No and he has absolutely perfect cuticles and nails. People ask him if he does get manicures probably because his nails are always so perfect and shiny!

    Mine doesn’t and he would scoff at the idea.

    No, he doesn’t. Yes, I wish he did. I would settle for him just not biting his nails anymore though! And he always complains about ripping them down too short. Blech.

    no – but my dad gets regular manicures and pedicures – he often calls me up to go with and pays for me 🙂  My dad is not the prissy type its funny because he is a toolmaker and almost always in dickies or sweatpants with oil and dirt under his fingers.

    No.  He keeps his nails pretty short and files them at home.  In the winter he’ll use lotion.  But that’s all.  His hands look fine, not like he’s going to become a hand model but they don’t look bad.

    My fiance doesn’t get manicures, but he will jump for a pedicure anytime I tell him I’m headed to the nail salon!

    @MsGinkgo:  I file and buff his nails for him, put on hand lotion, sometimes use cuticle oil. I asked to do his nails once when his bitten nail scratched me pretty good. He actually liked it and asks every now and then for me to do his nails.

    He has never gone alone and didn’t until I suggested it, but now when I say that I want to go he offers to come with.

    He doesn’t really like the manicures as much, but he LOVES the pedicures.

    Nope. I would find that really weird to be honest.
