An On-Board Manicure?

Would you ever consider getting a professionally done manicure--on a train?




I had no idea that this was even an option until my train ride to Nice. When I heard the conductor announce that one of the cars had manicurists, I thought I had misunderstood him, or maybe I was thinking of the wrong word in French. But then, a woman passed through the car and handed out these flyers, confirming what I had originally doubted.


You can find Nail Express exclusively on certain iDTGV lines in France. It offers a variety of services, including nail-polish removal, polish changes, massages, and even men's hand treatments. The prices look outrageous, though--25€ for a full manicure? No thanks. I'd be pretty nervous about getting a manicure on the train, anyway. What if the train hits a bump and the manicurist splatters paint on me? Or accidentally cuts me with the nail clippers?

While I don't plan on trying this service, I think it's a great idea for women (and men) on the go. After all, it kills two birds with one stone--transportation and manicured nails.

Would you get a manicure on board?

  1. Oh my goodness!! I would totally do this :) I was never allowed to have my nail painted as a kid. So I get crazy when I have them painted now :)

  3. How fun! If I had the money to throw around then sure, why not :) I'd hope that they have very steady hands though, for being on a train and all. Hahah.

  4. I never get manicures to begin with--I've only ever had one done professionally in my life-- so I wouldn't do it either. But that said, frequent travelers are usually people with a lot of money and a flair for luxury (or at least looking luxurious), so I'm sure it's a really good idea on the business end.

  5. I would consider the cost as an "experience cost" but the manicurist must have the world's steadiest hands! If not a manicure, a hand massage would be lovely too..


    Plus they use essie polish! which is my fav!
