Your fingers show as you put objects on document cameras to project across lecture halls and you can’t have raggedy nails for that. It is a requirement for my sister in law’s job and she is an MD. Men have it done as well. Straight ones.

Thanks for that photo montage–I’m certainly no judge though, either of whether it was done or whether it was the right thing to do. Like you said: it’s a business plan.

Funny thing: I don’t just “sit around with clear nail polish.” I don’t have any polish at all! Who has time for manicures or even home maintenance, anyway? I use my hands pretty much every day, all day long.

Plastic surgery, yes, until attitudes change it is to be done in late 50s, when the change will not be as noticeable. Christina Kirscher turns 60 this year and here are a variety of images, with and without makeup.

Guaranteed she has done Something. I am not saying it should be so.
But it is a business plan, yes.

Light blue was already the summer’s color of choice for many women in the under-40 range (one blogger described it as “equal parts Katy Perry and high school goth”), but Ms. Obama is 48, and many of her new nail followers are around the same age. The San Francisco-based writer Ayelet Waldman, 47, who is married to the novelist Michael Chabon, said: “I just ordered the color online, so it’s not yet on my nails. But I’ll be rocking it, as will at least a few of my kids. And we’re going to make their father wear it.”

This is completely false. The NY Times always refers to Michelle Obama as “Mrs. Obama”, and never as “Ms. Obama”. If you can find a reference to her as Ms. Obama anywhere in the NY Times on-line archive, I’ll eat my filthiest oldest Yankees cappe.
