How often do co-workers see your hands?
Manicures are a great way to boost self-esteem. Since they concern a body part frequently seen and evaluated by others – our hands and nails – making them look the best they can impart a significant amount of personal confidence. They don’t hurt overall personal attitude, either. The positive effect of personal grooming on your psyche is hard to deny. Manicures may not replace therapy sessions, but they can make you feel instantly more beautiful. In the work place, where we always use our hands, having a good manicure may actually enhance job opportunities. Well-groomed hands and nails are often among the first things to be noticed about you with most human interaction – the workplace is hardly different. So, keep your mitts looking professionally groomed, for an overall professional appearance, and the effect may just pay for itself in opportunities.
