Mrs. Onion’s post last week reminded me of a conversation that I had with Mr. Peacock and his sisters at Christmas. I think the conversation started with me talking about how I didn’t know how to make my manicures last longer than a few days. After recommending that I add a coat of clear polish each day after the manicure, one of Mr. Peacock’s sisters advised that Mr. Peacock get a manicure before the wedding. She mentioned that there were several close-ups of their hands (with their new rings) in her wedding album and that you would notice jagged cuticles.
Mr. Peacock just recoiled at the thought of a manicure. Another of Mr. Peacock’s sisters mentioned that her husband would NEVER let a stranger near his cuticles. They both had some vague dislike of manicurists touching their hands, particularly in a salon. I mentioned that there are several men-only salons in Chicago, but that didn’t make them feel any better.
Our photographer is a photojournalist, so I doubt we will have any of these in our album-

Is it still a good precaution? Maybe Mr. Peacock would let me do his mani rather than go for the full spa experience. I could see him getting a professional shave that morning since those can be done in a barber shop- and therefore, it is a “manly” experience. He also didn’t start using conditioner until we started dating, so we need to move in baby steps.
Did your hubby get a manicure or will your fiance get one? For the married readers, did you notice his nails in any of your photos, or is this something that my wedding brain is overthinking?
