Nail Art on Men - Yay or Nay?

Model David Agbodji is shown here sporting a $100 nail art manicure at the Fashion Fordward event in NYC. I think the nail art looks amazing (not $100 amazing though). But this isn't about the value of his nail art. what I'd like to know though is - are you for men sporting nail art or against?

Personally I don't mind this kind of nail art on a man as it isn't feminine. If he was seen sporting flowers on his nails though I might feel a little differently. Could nail art on guys be a growing trend or will it be restricted to the catwalk?

What do you think?


  1. Your reaction makes sense.  But the issue is moot -- normal guys will never adopt this.  Stores can't even sell them moisturerizer!

  2. It's a nay from me. Not that I'm personally against it, but because I really don't think it would catch on x

  3. I could never like nail art on men (even the picture is, in my opinion, too feminine), and I agree with the comment below: regular men would never wear nail art. My bf, for instance, I think he'd rather die than paint his nails, lol!

  4. I guess this is just about how we view the stereotypical "man" that society has constructed! Obviously a man who sees himself as all masculine and tough would never go for such a thing! I guess stereotypes are so engrained in us because as much as I hate to admit it, if a guy I was dating started wearing nail art, I might question it a little haha!

  5. Eh I'd say NAY except for the runway... I don't want him competing with me :)


i love comments i check out all your blogs :)
