Los Angeles: Actor Jude Law is obsessed with manicures as he likes to keep his nails neat and tidy.

"I`m obsessed with nail cutting. I`ve had manicures. I`ve become a bit obsessed about my nails," contactmusic.com quoted Law as saying.

"Playing a sailor in the play `Anna Christie`, I had to shove black make-up under my nails and couldn`t scrub it all out for two months - it was a nightmare," he added.

The actor says he even cuts nails for his kids.

"I`m proud to say that my kids come to me, not their mum, to have their nails cut," said Law, who is father to Rafferty, 15, Iris, 11, and Rudy, nine, and 20-month-old Sophia.

While his first three kids were with Sadie Frost, Sophia was born out of a brief relationship with Samantha Burke.

Law is quite conscious of his looks, but says men shouldn`t overdo grooming.

"Men shouldn`t be too groomed. I love the ritual of getting ready for an event, but you can tell when a guy has been standing in front of a mirror for too long," he said.

"Over-trimmed beards, over-styled hair, perfecting a look for hours and pretending it`s effortless - do me a favour," he added.
