Nail salons and men

December 24, 2008

I went to get my nails polished bright red for Christmas this morning. While waiting my turn, there was a steady stream of men and boys entering this most decidedly female sanctum. They looked like fish out of water as they made their way to the desk to ask for gift certificates. A few knew what to ask for, most likely well coached by their wives and girlfriends. The others were clueless. “I want to buy a gift certificate for nails” was the usual refrain, sounding more like they were in a hardware store than a nail salon. When asked what services they would like, so that the certificate could be made out for the correct amount, the men were flummoxed. Fortunately, the owner made the experience painless, suggesting a manicure and pedicure combination. Best of all, if one purchased a certificate for a mani/pedi, they received a second certificate for free. So, I just had to buy myself a little stocking stuffer, too 🙂
