Why can't guys wear nail polish too?

So like, everyone has the fashion stereotype that guys can't wear nail polish. But my reasoning is this: what is so feminine about nail polish? In all my research, the only thing I could find is that men used to work with their hands all the time, and so nail polish would wear off. Therefor no men would wear it. So society just made it a fad for women to wear it but not men.

But what about now? What is the reason why a guy couldn't go to school wearing black nail polish? Using reason, why is it that he would be made fun of for wearing nail polish?

  • Just like you said, it's already been established that nail polish is a feminine thing. You can do whatever you want though!

  • It's because of social expectations of what is masculine and what is feminine.

  • Some of us do sometimes. Generally because we think social norms can piss off.
