Ladies: I'm thinking about getting a gel manicure. It will be my first time though. Does it completely destroy your nails? Any recommendation for a quality nail salon in NYC?

If you don't peel the gel off your nails will be fine. I peel them off it's a bad habit

Man: For the record, I prefer a natural (no polish) manicure on women. But sometimes if you get the right Maroon, ooof!

After about two months of gel my nails are so dry they just fracture and I have to let them entirely grow out for a few months, but that's just me. Any salon can do a good job (it's very forgiving to apply), but if you want it to last 2-3 weeks make sure they do a very careful application of the first layer which is what makes it stick.

I go sparingly and it's fine- it's a game changer since I can never get regular manicures to last. Shellac is the type of gel that I've found to be the least damaging- make sure you look which one you're getting. As for places, it depends on where your offices are. I'm downtown and I like Affina Nails on Fulton.

If I get a manicure, do they have to do anything other than just trim and make my nails rounded (i.e., no gloss and stuff..)?

@BAML1 Yes, that's a thing. Some places will have a specific service for men, otherwise you just want a manicure or pedicure without polish. They'll know what to do.

Np. Just so you know, in NYC it is illegal to price the same service differently for men and women (haircuts, dry cleaning, spa services, etc). You might see some places try.

I'm a woman: I like gels because then I can get a nice, deep color without worrying about it chipping. A nice burgundy, a hunter green, etc.

Gel is the way to go - I usually do 2 gels in a row and then give my nails a breather for a few more weeks and then repeat. CND is the best brand for gel by far. Do not get an OPI gel - they destroy them. There's a ton of great places in the city - my fav is Fontainebleu nails around Lincoln Center. Once you go gel you never go back :)

^^this re: OPI. CND = Shellac for anyone who hears both terms. OPI is the worst- when you pick colors you can usually tell by the name of the nail palette they show you. Paintbox is another awesome place, but I reserve that for special occasions since it's pricey.

The place next to dig inn by of office is the shit

Are there options trading coaches or mentors? I’ve done well in stocks trading, have basic knowledge of derivatives from the BComm in Finance and various books/online resources.
But I feel like I’m really lost in the actual practical aspect of options trading and would love to learn directly from someone who’s experienced and successful in it. Preferably someone who’s smart about risk-minimizing strategies.
