@Latte31 - I actually think it would be fun to have a manicurist job because you get to talk to the customers as you fix their nails. It is like talking to an old girlfriend.
You also get to know your clientele and if you do a good job you will get a lot of repeat business which is also a rewarding aspect of this job. I think that some of the manicurist schools even offer job placement help once you graduate. So it may not be that hard to get started.
