Question:

This year where not a nidcheh can a girl going on a shidduch get a manicure during the 9 days?

Answer:

Depending on the circumstances, if it is indeed needed for the shidduch, then it would be permitted.

Sources:

Cutting nails during the week of Tisha B’av is controversial if it is permitted or not. The poskim say that it is permitted to wear Shabbos clothes for a date, and when needed to shower for the date. Cutting nails should not be worse then that. Additionally if a girl doesn’t have a manicure is not necessarily going to negatively effect her impression on the boy. Therefore it depends on the circumstances of each instance i it indeed needed.
