Do You Wear Nail Polish

God no. That kind of thing is for eccentric celebrities. I would assume 99.9% of men look stupid with nail polish.

Two things that are a major turnoff for me on men- nose rings and nail polish.

I paint my toenails in the summer. Sometimes just a shiny glaze, sometimes navy or dark gray.

It looks horrible 90% of the time because most guys have ugly, stubby fingers to begin with. And you need to moisturize your skin too. Even some colors look bad on women if they have rough looking hands. If you have pretty, elegant looking hands it can look good.

No, and while I don't find colored nail polish on a guy attractive, I'm less repulsed by that than by guys who wear clear nail polish on their hands or feet...totally disgusting...total boner killer.

You have to have that mid-summer tan on your legs and feet to pull off a clear coat. I wouldn't dare paint my toes right now.

I see lots of guys on social media and the hook up apps that do this . Total turn off . When did this become a trend and why ?

I think it started with men being more comfortable getting mani/pedis. It doesn't bother me that CERTAIN men paint their finger/toe nails. Taste levels vary between men, so there will always be a hot mess who ruins it. My deal breakers are nipple rings and sunburst tattoos circling the belly button. Blech.

When I was in high school some of my girlfriends painted my nails and put baby barrettes in my hair. Grunge was a thing so I mostly got away with it. Some bro dawgs called me a “fag” and it embarrassed my brother. Looking back now, he told me he wishes he had been less of a dick.

R17 men don't wear makeup, shit a wear a baseball hat most of the time, sometimes I'll put some AXE gel in my hair for work but that's about it
Men are more naturally beautiful than women, although being a bisexual male I like women too and can appreciate a beautiful woman, we're hunters, we work out, look strong and masculine, fart with pride etc
Being a masculine man is beautiful

The famous men that paint their nails always end up been bisexual or gay. Talk about painting their nails to reinforce negative stereotypes about gay and bi men been femmy.
|by Anonymous||reply 20||Last Tuesday at 1:01 PM|
R20 true about that stereotype with gay men but most bi men aren't femmy, most aren't even out and the ones I met who are openly bi are not feminine at all and fit in with straight guys

Is r16/r18 trying to prove he's not a troll by revealing that he's an Axe-wearing bisexual who loves his own farts?

Because you were socialized to accept certain gender norms.

How is nail polish not masculine?

I see this all of the time lately with fem guys in their 20s. They also wear girl shirts but guy pants. WTF. I guess I'm getting old because I can't even guess what gender is supposed to be anymore.

There are a LOT of fem gay boys and a LOT of those fem gay boys would rather be girls and if they could snap their fingers they would switch. So while most of them just ain't gonna go the dramatic transition route, they do look for any and all ways to push the boundaries to look and feel pretty. Painting their nails is just the beginning.

When I was in high school in the late 80s I would sometimes paint one nail on my left hand black - usually my pinkie or fuckerfinger, but sometimes I would switch it up. I would listed to Siouxsie, Bauhaus, Clan of Xymox, Tones on Tail, or something like that while doing it. I wasn't full goth though, so I only did one finger at a time.
I don't anymore.

Considering most men don't even keep their nails clean or neatly trimmed I would guess wearing nail polish would help camouflage dirty ragged nails. I think nail polish in general is nasty and using it long term discolors your nails turning them yellow-green. Kinda like a nail fungus - not a good look and no polish will cover up fungus infected nails. To boil it down - it's a NO for nail polish.

There are three main culprits found in many nail polishes: formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). These chemicals are known as the "Toxic Trio" or "Big 3". Formaldehyde is a chemical that is a component in plywood and particleboard, and is often used as a preservative, sterilizer and embalming fluid.
Even if I was so inclined, I would not put any toxic brew on my body.

My male students are into painting their nails. I had no idea it was a thing but it is. Some are gay but some are not.

I went through a goth/punk phase in high school where me and my straight friends wore black nail polish. But it only looks good if you're wearing the right outfit

I love the smell, but I’d need french nails - because they are Klassy. The extra length needed would be irritating, so they’d be a waste.
Also, chipped nails annoy me - regardless of your gender. If you’re giving them a coat, it should look good or you should stop.

R28 I’m not a gem gay boy but I can see the benefits of being a woman. They can get all the dick they want, can be fashion obsessed, more clothing options, more shoe options, more hair options, and it’s acceptable to let a man make money whirl you stay at home.

A lot of people who think like Ben Shapiro and Candace Owens on this forum. That’s suspicious.

I never have but I've considered it. I constantly get hang nails and my nails get caught on clothing and tear.
I've wondered if getting a manicure and some kind of clear polish would help.
I'd never get colored polish. Just doesn't interest me.
