    Okay guys, just want to know if you have ever had a Manicure and full hand treatment?.

    Or do you have regularly?

    What do women think of guys that have manicures?.

    Is it "Girly" or not?.

    I was taken by a female pal today for a surprise treat, it was relaxing, it felt good but i was embarressed about it. I was surprised for some reason the amount of guys that were in the shop having them.

    Are more men really taking pride in themselves more these days?.

    My initial reaction is that I would feel akward. But, is that because of a stereotype that I've grown accustomed to? I don't know. I know that I love hand massages, so it would probably feel good, but having a stranger rubbing, poking, and clipping on my hands would be foreign to me.

    One thing I do know is pedicures are OUT!! No one is touching my feet! :eek:

    I get manicures all the time and pedicures when I can.

    Manicures are not girly at all, it keeps up a very important professional appearance that is needed for business.

    Pedicures are needed if you're going to be wearing sandels or flip flops. Nobody wants to look at the hacked up wood chips some people call toenails. BLEAH.

    Not to mention, it feels good when the girls message your hands, forearms, feet and calves, particularly when they "accidentally" rub their tits on you. (if you're into that sort of thing) :)

    I get manicures and pedicures from time to time. I think they're a great way to tret yourself and relax and feel well groomed.

    I honestly do not see why it would be embarrassing or "girly" to go have part of your body groomed by a professional. I do mine myself. I don't polish my finger nails, but i clip them and buff the tops. I keep my toes the same way and I use a pumice stone for the bottoms of feet.

    A family member owned a restaurant and when there was a private catering event, manicures where in order. It is part of being a well groomed man.

    I see construction workers getting spa treatments for their feet and shoulders all the time. Times are changing and we're that much better for it.

    I've been getting a manicure and pedicure every week to 10 days for the last 26 years.

    I get a regular mani and pedi quite regularly. While I may work on a ranch it doesn't mean I don't want my hands and feet to look hot (especially in sandals season)

    I have had pedicures from girlfriends and would have a manicure. Been to spas and go for massage therapy regularly. Why would I care what anyone else thinks about it?

    When I was married, my wife treated me to a spa day once as a birthday gift. It included lunch, a facial, manicure, pedicure, and full body massage. It was amazing to be pampered as such and never felt "girly."

    One of my goals is for my Hubby and I to take a trip to Canada and spend a weekend at the Aveda Spa, being treated like kings.
    What does it matter? People should do these things for themselves, regardless of what others think.

    I tend to think that they are. Most men are oblivious, but women check out your hair, teeth, finger nails and shoes. If these four things are jack-up, hang it up.

    A common misconception is that a pedicure is all about your feet. It isn't. A good pedicure also includes having your calves and lower legs massages and more. A good foot massage can do wonders for stress and pain in your legs.

    I get manicures occasionally when my cuticles start looking poor and I get pedicures during the summer when I'm going to be wearing flipflops and no, it definitely isn't only for women.

    I love manicures and pedicures. It feels really divine while they're being done, and the results make me look and feel just a notch spiffier.

    I like when men take care of their hands and feet.
