Do you love to get manicures and pedicures?

Feet and Hands

Getting professional manicures and pedicures is always a wonderful experience. And the best part about them is they are not just for women! If you walk into a salon today, chances are you will see very manly men sitting in the massage chairs relaxing while they have their nails clipped and filed. Everybody loves to get them! And they even date all the way back to 4,000 years ago. In Babylonia, noblemen used golden tools for manicures and pedicures. Even further back in history, nail color represented social status in China and Egypt. The Ming Dynasty was said to paint their nails red and black, while Cleopatra painted her nails a deep red. Interestingly enough, Roman military used to paint there nails to match their lip color when they went off to battle.

So, if war heroes and ancient rulers were comfortable keeping care of their nails, why can't men today? While most men should probably choose to skip out on the polish, women and men should treat themselves to a manicure and pedicure for many reasons.(1)
