    It's a JOKE. Real men don't have time to bother with such puffery. Hands are for WORK.

    I get my Nails done at the Salon across the street and the Women there say there is nothing wrong with a Man wearing Nail Polish,

    Ah, this is a hard one for me.. And I didn't mean to vote yes on this. :-/

    I don't think that you can wear nail polish and have it come across as manly based on the appearance of having painted nails. I think that, if you have a manly carisma though, you can wear just about anything(to a point) and come accross as manly. ^^; For instance, the idea of UFC fighters wearing it doesn't scream girly because it's obvious they aren't fitting into stereotype. I think that, if you can wear nailpolish and make it obvious that you are a man based on your personality, then you can pull it off, but yes..

    Personally, I wear nailpolish because it adds a girly touch to me.. *Blushes* I'm totally gay and have a hard time shutting-off the "straight" vibe, so things like this are usefully. lol

    But yes, now you have a gay guys oppinion of this. >//>

    50% of UFC fighters wear nail polish. it's temporary, easy to remove unlike head to toe tattoos.

    I mean, to each his own, & I've seen guys do it, & I really don't care. But it just amazes me when companies will take a product that women have been using for years, then all they do is repackage it it in more 'masculine' packaging, make it smell a bit different, & sometimes even call it something else & somehow convince men that it's totally different than the women's version. The most ridiculous example of this I've ever seen is 'the one legged pant', which was basically nothing but a long skirt & they just called it that to try to convince men that it wasn't just a skirt. I'm not kidding.

    Companies do it with Pants they sell to Women. What's wrong with the shoe being on the other foot? Women want equal rights, Well EQUAL MEANS EQUAL. I love getting my nails done. Fingers and Toes. I say the product will not sell until the Closed minded People keep their opinions to themselves, I will do what I Want to do. MEN GO FOR IT. IF IT MAKES YOU HAPPY, DO IT.

    I don't know about nail polish being manly on a man, i would think that nail polish would give a very pretty looking man a feminine touch. Anyway i don't care if they want to wear nail polish or Make up. If they can rock the look then good for them. But i doubt the company is going to get really manly men buy the stuff. Only really feminine men would really buy the stuff =)

    I love men who are not afraid of wearing nail polish or makeup. They have to have b able to rock it though.

    Me too. I love androgyny. It is so much more interesting when people are secure enough to live to their own standard and not bend to the bludgeoning of society.

    No, men wearing nail polish isn't manly. It's a sign that men are just becoming too feminine when they got to grow a pair and stop being premadonnas.
  • dirkbuller Andrew 2013/08/03 02:39:12

    Personally I think it is silly, but hey whatever trips guys triggers! Just like when I see guys with their pants around their knees, I laugh at them but hey that is their choice and it is my choice to laugh at them. viva Liberty!

    It CAN look very sexy on the right guy. However, I'm inclined to point out, that there's not one fashion trend that everyone in the world can pull off, and more than a fair share that few can pull off.

    John Wayne wearing a pink neckerchief was a fluke. We was letting off an excess of manliness. But it does have to end there. This will not fly. I'm sorry. But it won't.

    No boys on this planet from 5-105 shouldn't be wearing nail polish (even if it is clear colored):

    UNLESS HE IS: gay, bi, goth-related, he is in a play, theatre (er), an actor and/or similar....

    I laugh when I see boys walk into a salon that's meant for WOMYN NOT BOYS (unless he is gay, then I'm ok with that), when the boy wants to get his eyesbrows, nails, toes, and/or any of his body parts done with other womyn around him; I just think it is funny altogether!!!

    Why would womyn (unless she is a butch or dyke womon herself-butch haircut that is?) walk into an all boys barber shop that is for boys and boys only; barber boys don't want to see us ladies in their area and hopefully visa versa; because I don't want to see boys walk into a womon haven spot!!!

    Putting nail varnish on has nothing to do with your sex, sexual orientation, or whether you're masculine or feminine. It's just our belief that makes it so. I think it can look good but obviously beauty is subjective. Usually it's who you like (find attractive) that makes things look good/better, but if you're really shallow, or judgemental certain things could maybe bug/offend you as benign as nail varnish. If you don't like it that's alright, no one is asking you to wear it.

    Men who like nail polish look great in nail polish. Some of my favorite men in my life wear nail polish and they wear it quite well.

    In most cases I would say no it's not however, black mainly, I think it depends on the guy - as in he would have to be completely comfortable and suit his style. If it's out of place and the person feels conscious of it then it's just awkward.

    DON'T CARE would be my choice. Although, I'm sure I would think it a bit unusual, I'd consider that the guy had a very large pair, indeed.

    A favorite SF author once posited a world where rudeness almost never happened. Laws allowed people to shoot whoever was rude to them. I imagine that the early society was pretty bloody but the mature society was incredibly polite.

    The hero, who could drill a dime at a hundred paces, once commented favorably on the choice of nailcolor his (male) friend was wearing. And, neither of them was gay. The friend was married and the hero married later in the story. Before that, he spread pollen from flower to flower.

    Medieval men wore silks, satins, sewn-on jewels and huge codpieces. 18th century men wore makeup, high heels, lace and tight stockings. Casanova was an 18th century role model.

    Fashion is just fashion.
