Guys, what nail color do you like on a girl? Or do you notice at all?

So this question is damn weird and random. But I don't care. I don't even know if men notice a girl's nail color but the thought occurred to me out of nowhere and now I am curious. Do you like it when girl polish their nails? Do you notice such a thing? If you do notice it or care for it (even if it turns you on in some way), what is your favorite color on a girl? Red? Neutral? Dark? Bright?

  • VERY few guys will notice though, if they do notice, even fewer will care unless it's a horrid color. I'd take a girl's nails painted or unpainted, it's no matter to me. I do sometimes notice though, when I do, I don't have an opinion about them one way or another. I don't have a favorite color but, if her nails have designs on them, it will prompt me to comment on them. Example: One of my female friends had her nails pained with classic 'Batman' fighting words such as "BAM!" and "POW!". Another friend had a zebra-like pattern painted on her nails.

  • As a guy, my top 5 favourite nail polish colours on girls are:
    White, red, grey, sky blue, navy blue.
    Some honourable mentions go to candy pink, black, coral, nude, lavender and dark brown.
    Please no greens, yellows, oranges, neon colours, nail art/french manicures or acrylic nails.

  • My baby likes Cajun Scrimp by OPI
    He likes anything with sparkles
    I have a color he likes it's called Haute Shine by sinful colors he calls it power ranger pink because it's about the color of Kimberly's outfit in the new Power Rangers movie that came out here recently. And his favorite color is red so he likes it when I wear red too.

  • So funny you asked this, because I wondered this too. I read in a magazine that guts Gaye chipped nail polish (makes sense, because I think everyone hates chipped polish), but otherwise I don't listen to fashion magazine tips.

    I haven't gotten negative feedback from my nail colors as far as I can remember. I sometimes wear this bright neon traffic-cone orange by ORLY and I got compliments on it from the male customers at work. But orange works on me because my skin tone is "warm." I won't dare try navy, jet black or gunmetal.

  • Most guys don't really notice unless it's something crazy. I kinda like it when girls wear nail polish. I'm fine with all kinds of colors. Red, black, neutral, pink, and purple. An important thing to add is the thing that makes it shine or appear kind of liquidy rather than dry. Oh, and avoid colors like gray, brown, light blue, and orange. I don't think those look any good.

  • All we see is that you're not satisfied with your own natural appearance and like to waste money on materials rather than boost your own confidence on a personable level.
    Women see things and recognize it. We're too busy looking for any signal of interest or desire, such as a look, or words.

    • I paint my nail frequently because it's fun to have something colorful or a tiny design to look at. The purpose of nail polish isn't to fill the void in my soul or help diminish my vast self-hatred. Dunno about girls, but uh... yeah. ._.

  • I know I'm the odd one out, I watch nail art videos when they come up on Facebook cause I think it's really cool. I can't say that there is ONE color I like since I think it looks coolest with patterns or designs but if I have to pick one it'd be Purple or Green I think.

  • Most guys won't notice any details on your nails. The only exceptions are if the nails are overdone (several colors, patterns, drawings), and really ugly (too long, dirty, cracked, not taken care of). That would turn guys off. So, just keep them clean, not too long, and no guys will be turned off by them.

  • i dont mind at all. sometimes it does seem like its a good thing that the person is neat enough to have perfectly intact nail polish. but i would actually preffer black one, just because i remember a friend who bought one that was actually for protecting, it had the black color, and she was using it because her nails used to chip easily (and painfuly). guess that stuck to me.

  • I've always been a fan of the blank colour.

    But let's be honest here, I doubt it's most guys
    that gets attracted to you because of your hands.

    But seeking to improve how you look is always good
    but most of the times, it's how you carry yourself. ^.^

    • I know, that's somewhat what I said in the paragraph below my question :) And what do you mean "blank Color"?

    • Like a polish without colour, blank. ^.^

    • Oooh, ok. Thanks for the input :)

  • Clear, is the best colour all around.

    Though depending on the season, different colours
    inhabits complimentary effects to the surroundings as well.

    Spring and summer calls out to yellow and green
    while fall and winter calls out to green, orange, blue and purple.

    But there's much more in it, than just that
    like if a certain colour suits your skintone
    and your overall style/vibe.

    The best thing to do, is to find your own style
    and go with/hold on to that. ^.^

  • I work with the same finish nail polish is made of. I am always mixing custom colors. It is kind of fun to mix up little custom batches of nail polish for her. One woman used to get me to mix up colors to match certain things exactly.

  • I'll only notice if the girl sticks out. It depends on the walls inside the building honestly. So if I'm in a building with dark blue walls I will notice brighter colors. It really doesn't matter to me though. I just consider it a typical girlie preparation for leaving the house.

  • The one color that turns me completely on and more is O.P.I.'s Lincoln Park After Dark. Plus, let me say that I have a major major fetish for pretty hands, nails, feet and toes. Yes! Guilty as charged !

    • lol that's very specific! But yeah, I love that color too, so vampy and mysterious! =D

    • Nooooooo :( the last reason for me to love that color on nails is vampy and mystical. I just love it because hands and feet look pretty in thoa color.

  • I find colored nails attractive because its very girlie and I am attracted to the girlie girl style.

    I like darks as well as pastel colors and funky nail art like flowers. :)

  • My opinion is the best make-up jobs on girls are the ones that go almost unnoticed. As long as the color doesn't distract from the look I say you're good no matter what you do. Think of it as your appearance is a painting and your make up is the frame. A nice frame is a great compliment, but the frame can't distract from the art. I hope that makes sense.

  • I have to say... I don't really care too much.. I think I would maybe even prefer natural.. I don't like too much artificial stuff. Natural can be more beautiful, true and more stimulating than some strange stuff that make people seeming like aliens. Ahah :-)

  • On girls with a fairer skin tone, OPI's LP after dark makes me crazy. It is sexy as hell specially if the girl has nice hands and feet because I have a major thing for pretty hands and feet.

    In light of what you aee a lot these days, pastel colors look nice but I am sure that fashion will go away eventually.

    About not so fair akin tone... Hmmmm... Anything that goes well with the attire.

  • I like red a lot, but color doesn't matter to me much, although I DEFINITELY DO notice if a girl I know has done her nails or changed to a new color. This may be a given, but it's cute when it matches well with the makeup, outfit or both..

  • I tend to appreciate darker colors that can match her eyes or her outfit. A girl that can match colors and make a really awesome outfit with little effort is usually very attractive to me. But nails are pretty much different for each girl so it's hard to say a specific color/type. In terms of a nice dinner I'd see some sort of dark red and then following that up with dark coloring in her over all look. Very sexy.

  • I don't know about other guys but me personally... I like something bright (dark pink, purple, blue, sky blue etc.) ... I also love black... And ya most guys, including me, as far as i know, are not very fond of super long nails... 1-2mm less than the pic give would be great...

  • I think most guys notice nail polish on girls. Personally i like it especially if the nail polish was chosen to correspond with something else (purse/shoes/makeup). In addition Patterns especially seasonal patterns are cute but everyone is diffrent.

    I personally have my nails painted a blue sparlily polish at the moment (and yes i am a guy)

    • hands are very important to me, I can completely understand why you look at a girls hands. it says a lot about a person!

    • Haha that's the weird thing though! I look at everyones hands but for some reason a girls hands turn me on I don't know why. I look at guys hands to see if I can tell what sort of lives they've had whether they were pampered or have done some hard work in their lives XP

  • I prefer clean, average length nails with no color on them. Feels more fresh.

  • I paint my nails all the time. I usually go for the girly colors like pink and purple. On the odd time I go for blue. Everytime I paint my nails blue I get a compliment from my boyfriend or guy at work, or even a random stranger. So odd, i thought guys didn't even notice that shit.

  • They don't care at all about nail color, they will not notice if you change it drastically. They will however notice if your nails are way too long or if your nails look like a bit too much effort (rhinestones, drawings etc.). So if your nails are regular, they won't notice, I guarantee it.
