Happy New Year! It’s 2018 and all of us are ready to leave the gunk of 2017 behind and look forward to a fresh and clean start to the new year. One of the things many guys are looking to do better this year involves their personal grooming and nail care, from keeping up with mani maintenance to trying out new things to pamper and relax themselves, allowing the stresses of 2017 to melt away. But in our high-paced lives, sometimes you need some help getting started. Thankfully, there are are a slew of options when you just can’t stop you busy life for a manicure that you might want to add to your New Year’s Resolutions list.
As guys become more and more conscious about personal grooming, many companies have taken notice and launched exclusive “men only” lines designed to keep you looking good while still feeling macho. The cleanup conglomerate Tweezerman recently launched a slick new men’s line of grooming tools called the Tweezerman G.E.A.R. Collection for Men. This high-performance line allows guys to clip, file, tweeze, trim and shape just about any place we need to. Their Essential Grooming Kit comes with stainless point tweezers, ultra-sharp steel clippers, facial hair scissors and an embedded nickel multi-use tool to clean under the nails and file down-jagged edges, all wrapped up in a sharp leather case. At $30, it’s an essential set for the ever-traveling guy.
If you’re a guy who has more of an edgy style, ACE Nail Care’s tools for guys are a great quick-fix option that keeps your masculine self-image intact. With fiery- red accents and a sleek, cobalt black finish, these tools are both useful and de-girlified. Their triangular nail pick features a 360º scrubbing ring, attacking those grubby nails to remove grit, grease and grime both above and below the nail bed as well as a handy nail file to complete the job. Your wild talon toenails are no match for their 55º POWER CUT™ toenail clippers, which have straight blades to dodge those nasty ingrown toenails and a built-in nail catcher, allowing you to snip down without clippings flying everywhere. For just around $15 each, the four-piece collection can be a lifesaving staple in your everyday hustle.
The high-traffic, fast-paced life of the concrete jungle doesn’t leave much time to make sure you’re always looking your best. When properly equipped, the employee bathroom could be all you need to get your look back up to speed. So this year, make strives to be prepared for any situation 2018 may throw at you. It just takes a quiet corner, five focused minutes and, of course, the right tools.
