I don't think it really matters to be honest. If you like nail polish then wear it, if you don't, then don't. Don't alter your opinions on something just because you think it'll appeal more, just be yourself (:
Personally I love nail polish, but only dark colours or blues and purples. I don't really wear bright colours or reds and such (:
I love nail polish, it's just another accessory and really finishes off your look, so I definitely wouldn't stop wearing it for a guy. I know a girl who stopped wearing nail polish, eye liners, certain clothes, etc all because her boyfriend didn't like it - don't be that girl.
I think nail polish is sexy. I personally like vampy shades or classic red best, I'm not into soft pinks, girly colours or french manicures. I'm actually wearing a pink shade now, but it's a dusty rose colour, not so girly. I don't think guys care that much about your nails, but I do think they notice and your nail polish can send out certain messages or evoke certain feelings/responses. As long as your nails aren't too long (which I think looks unhygienic and tacky) and are tidy, guys will find that attractive.
I think guys are more likely to like a French manicure. It really makes your nails look cleaner not to mention brighter and more realistic.
Nail polish usually makes girls more clean and girly, sometimes, but I don't know if it's really sexy.
All the men that I know adore nail polish. Yeah girls, it's sexy.
I personally, genuinely, absolutely love when girls wear nail polish. Actually, the best thing about is it isn't even a private part! I get to see girls wearing in public all the time. It is a HUGE turn on for me. Especially fire engine red or hot pink or generally anything bright. To me it's just plain obscene. I don't know why. Perhaps it's something kinda animalistic perhaps, like it's her claws or something. It's very suggestive to me, like she's "going hunting" or something. I used to watch the home shopping channels (actually still do) just to see women's polished nails. I realized they were fake and there wouldn't be any women with real nails that look that good, for shame, oh well.
But, I understand I am the minority here, but there are guys who will definitely like it if you "poison your claws" Me and my friend who is married are really the only guys I know who like it. Though, I've heard a lot of guys generally say they don't care for it. But, he really loves it when his wife wears it, and so do I.
Whatddya think of that, sister?
Sure don't, I think its un natural; tacky. It's distracting, you have ten stop signs on your hands waving them around. I agree with attentiontodetails answer. I'd rather have a girl with a flat chest then a girl who is obsessed with nail polish (yes, you lauren conrad)
NO NO NO and NO !
nail polish is a huge TURN OFF. and I'll explain why...
it looks dirty, especially when it's done bad, and it's starting to peel away. Bad !
Natural is hot, all day, any day. french manicure looks ok on some.
I will not date a girl who wears nail polish, hand or feet. it is that gross to me.
Painted toe nails is probably the grossest cosmetic thing a girl could do in the world.
Just take care of them and leave them natural, that way no one will be turned off, because it's NATURAL ! :D
keep in mind, I'm the type of guy who likes natural beauty, so that's my stand point.
I do like when girls get "done up" but please girls, all this nail polish is making us puke!
Feet are gross. I don't care who's feet they are.
Nail polish is fine just don't do the long fingernails thing. that's retarded.
i can't stand nail polish and a girl's hands and feet are very important to me. it is actually a turn-off, though I understand that it is a turn-on for some guys.
Oh Yeahhhhh. It's like another form of jewelry of sorts, and colors affect guys in strange ways (we're such visual creatures). Especially if she already has great nails, just about any color is AWESOME - even blue, green, purple, orange as well as the 'usuals' like pink and red. Damn sexy in my opinion!
I don't care for nail polish, but it doesn't bother me unless it's a god awful color like a bright red. Clean healthy natural nails are more of a turn on for me than a girl who covers them up.
It doesn't matter to me I never really notice it that seriously.
Absolutely YES! It's eye candy. Girls are already so...dang...irresistable with their soft skin, long hair, tender voices and those incredible eyes that can get you to do almost...anything! Add a set of long, glossy nails (any color, as long as it's neatly done) and a guy will go ape-sh-t.
C'mon, do girls really need to have such an incredible arsenal to use on guys? I guess it's natural, guys are visual creatures of desire, and under our macho, tough-guy shell, we'll all looking for the same thing - to have some fun, and to mate with someone who will bring us beautiful offspring. Why do you think pretty girls get the attention? Why do all the of ads you see coming from every direction show girls that flirt and look like a million, no scratch that, a zillion bucks? Why do girl take care of themselves and present the image of a goddess? It's cause they can, that's why! Why do guys react the way they do, they can't just not notice a pretty girl that walks by? It's because we're wired that way! We don't have a choice, and the smart girls know that.
So, is nail polish part of the allure? You're darn right it is! It glitters and shines and dresses up one of the sexier parts of a woman, her beautiful hands (where the wedding rings goes guys...).
So, did I answer your question?
Generally men are just attracted to women who take good care of themselves. And nails can be an easy way to read into a girls personality. Healthy well kept nails are great and with a nice shade of polish shows that you want to look good but not over do it. Gross dirty fungus nails say that they are slobs and don't care about hygiene. Bright huge fake nails send a message that they are high maintenance and crave a lot of attention.
I don't care one way or the other. I'll notice nicely done nails maybe once a year. It doesn't hurt anything, so it's up to you.
The only girl I recall from high school who usually wore nail polish was a model. And she was beautiful. And I was madly in love with her. Hmm...I've changed my mind - I think you should wear nail polish.
