The actor usually has bad nails and rough cuticle because lie is constantly dipping in the cold cream jar to remove the make-up:. This is hard on the nails. Other people to worry about are those sentimental foreigners, who love all American girls; especially manicure girls. We are often told that they have no good manicures in Europe.' Some of them have hands thai have done no work for 500 years, but their nails don'tlook it to any one who is expert on nailology. Strange- as it may seem, a truckman, janitor, street cleaner, or hod carrier, who never has had and never would have a manicure, usually has the. most perfectly grown nails and cuticle. I suppose they wear off all superfluous flesh,and nail in their daily labours: The man-flirt has long, thin, narrow Chinese nails, with ragged cuticle. He wants the cuticle cut close and the nails bleached very white. He is effeminate and talks about himself and his conquests. He knows nothing else, and doesn't even recognise competition.
