Jessica Alba's Husband Wears Pink Polish, Seal Wears Yellow: Should Guys Wear Nail Polish?

Jessica Alba got herself decked out for Fashion Week ... and so did her husband, film producer Cash Warren. The Daily Mail spotted hot pink nail polish on Mr. Jessica Alba's fingernails. Well, he was going to a fashion show ... and he had to find some way to stand out as the photogs went crazy for his stylish wife.



But Cash isn't the only dude rocking nail polish lately (and we're not talking about basic black, either). Heidi Klum's ex Seal was spotted in an airport in Australia Wednesday wearing neon yellow nail polish -- and no ring, The New York Daily News reports.



And last fall, USA Today noted the blue nail polish Johnny Depp wore to the premiere of his movie, "Rum Diary" -- which just so happened to match his shirt and handkerchief. We're not going to call this a "metrosexual" trend, because that term feels so dated.

But it does seem like fashion-forward guys are finally embracing nail polish -- and even, ironically, managing to look more manly as a result. Our only concern ... looks like there's going to be a much longer wait at the nail salon. Do you think guys should wear nail polish? Or does it look too "girlie" for your taste?

    Wow, men wearing nail polish really scares you? What should scare you is men (or women) who are child molesters, or corrupt investment bankers who steal peoples savings. Things that really mater.

    My husband wears nail polish on his toes and I think he's SUPER sexy when he does. Sometimes I offer to paint his nails. We have two boys and twin girls on the way and I think his daughters will enjoy painting their nails with daddy. Even if my boys ask to paint their nails. It doesn't mean they are less male, it just means they are more open to new things.

    If we live in a world where women constantly crave equality and are allowed to dress like men, it would be unacceptable to tell a man he can't make what is usually feminine into a part of his own self expression.

    It used to be considered indecent for women to wear pants, but there is, for the most part, no problem with that now. Why should this be any different?

    No good reason for men to wear nail polish. If a man does decide to wear nail polish, it is probably best just to ignore it. Fashions change and it may be quite fashionable for men to wear lots of makeup in the future -if so i hope that day is a long way off as I see how much time my wife takes to apply makeup and remove make up. Of course she does do her nails while watching TV sometimes, maybe she likes the process.

    There is a good reason for a man to wear nail polish - because he likes to wear it. That is all the reason that is needed.

    Sure, fine I suppose if one wants to wear nail polish it is readily available and hurts no one. Not exactly my cup of tea, but since fashion has never been my strong suit I really should not comment at all. I still believe makeup takes a lot of time, but I suppose if one wants to, they should. I find it hard to accept that "wanting to" is a reason. A reason would be more like - it looks good or it helps to keep nails from cracking or something lke that. But maybe you meant that no one needs to give a reason. Well, that also is fine. Sorry if you took this personally and If you wish to wear polish I wish you well with it.

    I'm shaking my head at how ignorant people are. All I read in these comments is "I grew up this way and if you didn't your gay/weird." Obviously someone has never been outside their country before. So let's start up a list at people who are "feminine" by your definition:

    The Scottish Gaelics who wear skirts into battles - gay
    The Japanese Samurai of the sengoku era - gay
    The US's forefathers who wore wigs/makeup/leggings - gay
    The English monarachy/royality - gay
    The Norse Vikings - gay
    The Ancient Greeks - gay
    Japanese in general - gay
    Korean - also gay
    Pirates - gay
    Slaves - gay
    Many African tribes - gay
    Hindus/Indians - gay
    Native Americans - gay
    Ancient middle eastern men - gay
    etc.

    The actual determination of cross-dressing is largely socially constructed. For example, in Western society, trousers have been adopted for wear by women, and is not regarded as cross-dressing. In cultures where men have traditionally worn skirt-like garments such as the kilt or sarong these are not seen as female clothing, and wearing them is not seen as cross-dressing for men.

    The historical associations of maleness with power and femaleness with submission and frivolity mean that in the present time a woman dressing in men's clothing and a man dressing in women's clothing evoke very different responses. A woman dressing in men's clothing is a marginally more acceptable activity.

    Granted, I only scrolled a little way down the screen, but i saw none of the comments to which you refer. I think this was supposed to be a light-hearted question. I don't know quite what to make of your long list of people that you think are being called gay. Not sure I have every met anyone that thinks Vikings were gay. Sounds like you are angy with someone. Good luck, I hope you do well with whomever you think you are feuding.

    It was more to show the cognitive dissidence between clothing, sexuality and what's normal. If everyone thought it was normal to wear a shoe on your head, would you do it? Would you find it weird? Same concept. If you consider what people wear to affect their sexuality than you are by definition close minded as you can only see what you have been taught as normal to be true. If you look at history those examples are of men who wore "feminine" clothes by western standards, however that does not make them gay. So why are the men above considered homosexual but vikings aren't? Cognitive dissidence. (I'm basically calling people stupid).

    Your right its society that complicates things with their stereotypes. Pacific Island men wear lavalavas (or sarongs) and in the western world its seen as a skirt. Men who can wear nail polish in public and be themselves no matter where they are is very attractive...

    We could also state that "It's not feminine" when women wear men's shirts, men's watches, men's shoes, men's neckties, and the goes on and on. There are many articles in women's fashion magazines that explain how to incorporate items from men's fashion into their wardrobe. Women are encouraged to do this, but when men incorporate items from women's fashion, everyone crys foul! Why the double standard?

    gender is over-rated! Did people love Micheal Jackson because he was a guy or because he was an entertainer? Did people love Princess Diana because she was a woman or because she had a heart of gold? If you were to take them out of their bodies and give them opposite genders, would they still be the same people/personality? Yes. It all comes down to the kind of person you are, in the end, cos people get over your looks and they get over your fame and begin to look at who you are as a person.

    Wrong, painted color nails on a hairy hand is not feminine either. I think you meant MACHO. Nail polish on a man is definitely not MACHO. But masculinity is not defined by the color of ones nails.

    Men wearing nail polish is very much like men wearing earrings, and tattoos, but it is much less permanent and it is fun and expressive because you can easily change it. It is important to remember that most high-fashion was invented by men and was worn by men in the days of our forefathers. This conversation about men wearing nail polish reminds me of the conversation in the 70′s regarding men wearing earrings which is now quite commonplace with even many NFL players wearing earrings. Men have very limited forms of self expression. On the other hand, women have been borrowing from men’s fashion for years. Additionally, when a man adopts an item from women’s fashion, a lot of folks immediately cry foul. Why the double standard? Fashion is fun and should be enjoyed by everyone and a person’s sexuality should not be judged because of their fashion choice as they are usually not related. Please look at men wearing nail polish with an open-mind. Women have been adopting from men’s fashion for many years and now men are beginning to reciprocate because many men are tired of the fashion prison that has been created for them. These men should be respected for being bold enough to try a fashion that was typically associated with women. I do agree with you that men’s nail polish is not...

I do agree with you that men’s nail polish is not needed and also believe that men should not be limited regarding colors. If we insist on imposing limits on men’s expression, then maybe women should also go back to the days of June Cleaver and dress very feminine at all times by wearing high-heels and frilly dresses rather than items adopted from male fashion such as men’s shirts, masculine clunky boots, pants, blue jeans, men’s underwear (they call them boy shorts), men’s watches, and the list goes on and on. It is disrespectful and absurd to impose gender limitations on self expression. Please open your minds rather than being judgmental. Respectfully, Jamie
