Nails and Lipstick Explained

A couple of days ago, I posed the "what do you think of lipstick, what do you think of nails?" question. Your responses are as I expected.

This all came about because a woman on the plane had her cell phone out the SECOND we landed, and when she found out that her appointment was cancelled, she immediately booked a manicure.

Now, I've never had a manicure in my LIFE. I do tend to keep my nails trimmed, shaped, and clean. And when I play around with polish (I like to), I do it for me, and I realize that only women are going to be looking at it, typically. Can't really wear lipstick - cakes too quickly for me. Sometimes I'll put it on and then completely wipe it off. Leaves a bit of color but no residue. A male friend shared with me once that lipstick grosses him out. I suspected he was not the only one. You all confirm that.

Thank you for affirming that I understand the male mind. ;)

Men are simple creatures, ruled by two things: their stomachs and their penises. Really, what's so hard to understand?

LOL - Heather I've had a couple of manicures. It was my daughter who took me to the shop with her when I got my first one (she was in college then). I found out real quick that I'm just not a manicure person... the nails look good for about 1 day - then I start messing them up.

I do know women who have manicures all the time. I just don't know how they do it. But yeah, it's really for other women - most men aren't too interested in that stuff. *grin*

The only thing that really interests me about a woman's nails is the scratch-marks they'll leave down my back :-)
