Next to the covertly hostile nose hair hanging out of your nose, dirty nails and untidy cuticles are a big turn off.
•Clean finger nails are essential for any man.
•Get into the habit of checking and cleaning your nails every day. The best way of cleaning the nails is to clean them immediately before or after the shower using a fingernail brush.
•Keep nails trimmed! Weekly trimming of nails with a nail clipper or scissors is usually sufficient. The nails should never be more than about 3 mm in length or the ends of your finger tip. To avoid a severe beating from partner, file the edges of the nail with an emery board.
•Cuticles are the outermost layer of skin that protrudes above the nail surface and when the nail grows the cuticles dry out and become ragged. They should not be removed; ideally they should be pushed back, using a few drops of good cuticle oil and a cotton bud push towards the finger joint.
•If you're not sure, a great way to get the practical know how is just to splash out on a manicure to see how it's done, it won't cost a fortune and the advice will last a lifetime.
•Remember this if nothing else, biting nails is not an option!
