Getting nails done, or hair done, or any similar treatments isn't really to impress guys. If we're looking to impress anybody, it's our girlfriends, since they'll be the ones to actually notice. More predominantly however, as a few others here have said, it's just a nice feeling to be attended to for a few minutes and to come out knowing that you look good.
Personally, I'd totally go out and get my hair and nails done on a weekly basis if I had tons of expendable cash just for that latter reason.
we don't do it for guys. I like to get pampered and I enjoy trying out new styles on my nails. the main people who notice are other girls. but I've had men tell me they like it too, to them I guess its a sign that a woman takes care of herself and likes to be really feminine. but no one picks out a gel solar set and does it thinking its gonna bring all the boys to the yard...
I never go get mine done unless mom really wants me to go with her an she's paying ;) its way too expensive, a mani is like $20 when I could buy two full polishes for that price and do my own nails for free. I love painting my nails an always do it myself
Because we tend to think at about a million thoughts per second. Having someone else take care of us helps us relax and think about nothing. For me personally it is also a bonding thing. Me and the girls will go get pedicures every 8 months or so. It has nothing to do with aesthetics. And a lot to do with finals being over.
they think its cute. everybody has their own style . some girls think its super cute and others nehh . I don't get them done but when I see other people with them I think there cute. and its not for the guys its for them :).
I use to get acrylic nails, but I stopped because they're too expensive and I just don't like them anymore. I like painting my nails or buffing them to make them look really shiny when I don't have nail color on them. I keep them real short now
dude, its not for guys. it for themselves, and for the other girls. we just wanna show off. or I do:) ha ha I can't help it. I'm sure other girls feel that way. its like clothes. we buy cute clothes for girls to see, not guys.
everything we do is not for the purpose of impressing guys. it makes us feel good to get pampered and have our nails look pretty. it pleases us, that's why. I don't have the money to get my nails professionally done anymore but I still do them at home it looks cute to me.
eh...I hate manicures, if my firens and I want our nails done we do eachothers, We usually have a girls night in and just have fun doing pedicures and manicures and trying different face masks and stuff. There is no way on Earth I would spend $$ on nails...
Because they're not doing it for guys. They are using it either as a means of self-expression, or because their mom told them nails are important for being feminine (yeah I hate them for doing that as it's the stupidest thing they can do, yay for corrupting the mindset of the youth, congratulations...), or to increase their own confidence and self-esteem.
Same goes for makeup. Self-expression, feminine identity, or confidence boost.
Why do (mostly guys) work towards a gamerscore on the Xbox360 knowing full well that no one who it matters to will ever actually look at their gamerscore anyway?
It lets them feel good about themselves, and improves their self confidence. Vanity is a sin everyone is guilty of, and the need to appease it will always be there. Don't think certain things like plastering makeup all over themselves or indeed, painting their nails and toenails is a waste of time, because it does help them, even if you don't realize it.
In a world this depressing, I'd paint my nails simply to feel a little better about myself, too.
