Forget palms if you want to read into a man’s life. Look at his nails! – The Handlers

Forget palms if you want to read into a man’s life. Look at his nails!


Forget palms if you want to read into a man’s life. Look at his nails: are they chewed to the quick, are they grubby and long? Yes? I’m sorry guys, I’m gonna have to ask the ladies to step away.

In today’s world the term “metrosexual” no longer prompts giggles but is an acceptable and appreciated description of the modern man. It’s no longer strange for men to go for facials, waxes, manicures or pedicures. Most salons offer a metrosexual pamper package and the rise of the male-only salon is on the horizon. Sure, getting french tips might be going a little over the top, but getting those toenails clipped professionally will not only prevent ingrown nails, it will also give you feet to show off proudly once summer starts.

If you’re not yet up to redeeming that spa voucher your girlfriend got you for Christmas, don’t stress.  Start small, begin with doing your own manicures at home using a quality manicure set.  And it doesn’t have to be the glittery set you’ll find at the pharmacy, these days they make pretty damn masculine sets that look like it belongs in a tool box. But please, trim those talons!

Gentlemen, if you ask me, I’d much rather shake David Beckham’s hand than the hand of Steven Tyler. And it’s purely for hygienic reasons. (I promise;)
