I would much rather see a guy with well tended nails (I have never seen a guy, except a goth, with colored nails) than a guy who looks like he’s an extra in the movie “Quest for Fire”.
Thank goodness he’s in to hygiene, I much prefer that than the opposite.
and… I just don’t care what other folks find pleasing if it doesn’t effect me.
all this judging folks lately, all of you get over yourselves
Maybe he took his mom to a ladies day and she had him do it as a joke, or he has a daughter at home that did it for him.
who cares? actions make the man, not the trivial junk
There’s a difference between getting your nails painted by your daughter or by your mom as a joke - and getting them done yourself in “5 vibrant colours”, and having them match your eyes or shoes.
Seriously, nothing wrong with looking after youself as a man - infact I encourage it - but painting your nails is right up there with wearing eye makeup and lipstick - men shouldn’t do it.
Again, I’m not going to get phased if some guy does it - but I am going to point and make fun of him.
Well, they don’t exactly match my eyes or shoes, and I do them shits myself…so can I retain any man-points?
Why shouldn’t men do it? I’ve always thought a man should do what he likes, and that bending to the preference of others is a sign of being a bit of a dripping-twat queer. I like to paint my nails. If I should suddenly stop simply because other guys think it’s ‘gay’, I find that would be much more telling than the color of my fingernails.
You might find the way I look ridiculous, but I find the way most guys look to be rather silly myself. Who’s right? Majority doesn’t mean correctness, in fact, the opposite is often true. [/quote]
I personally don’t ridicule how anyone looks, because it has nothing to do with me, nor do I think it’s gay. It’s just something that I don’t understand. Having dirty, and/or long fingernails, is just plain repulsive to me.
I have had them painted by a girfriend before, because it was something she always wanted to do, so…
It stayed on for a night, then out came the nail polish remover, which smells awful.
