Black lacquer, stiletto nails, stylish jacket – everything that we most often order from manicure masters puts men into a state of outright horror. And this is not the whole list of manicure options that scares the opposite sex and can even extinguish the fire of desire.

The form, which the masters compare with pointe shoes and lobby in every possible way, is perceived by men as edged weapons. Representatives of the stronger sex call such nails heeled nails» (by the way, it seems), and especially emotional ones compare women with such a manicure with Wolverine. Sometimes guys don’t mind having their back scratched, but they expect grievous bodily harm from a woman with stilettos. And these fears often affect the potency of impressionable males. Therefore, it is better to refuse stilettos, especially since in everyday life such a form is completely “indigestible”, and you can accidentally scratch yourself.

What men like: short or medium length nails, almond or soft square in shape, men consider such a manicure to be neat and safe.
