guys and nail polish
I am a guy and I wear clear nail polish because my nails are very brittle. Even thoughI keep them very short, they will still break really easily. It starts to hurt after a while if all your nails are cracked, don't ya know it? If i was straight, I would probably still wear it, yeah, my nails are that bad. What do you all think about guys wearing it. Wierd? kinda? or not? I am thinking about doing them black for holloween.

Well, give opinions NOW!

Clear nail polish or no nail polish.. same difference to me
I do think that colored nail polish on guys is hmm.. distinctive ?
If you're having so much trouble with your nails maybe you should take some extra vitamins ( zinc, silica/silicum, vitamin b's )

I like "rock star" kinds of nail polish; black, grey, blue, metallic tones mostly. I would wear it more often except that one, it takes a lot of time that I usually don't have, and two, it seems to damage my nails; after taking it off, my nails seem soft and sometimes develop weird cracks or faults in them.

I think a lot of people do think it's weird. Some straight men will assume you are flamboyantly gay and/or a transvestite, and that you are seeking attention for it, and some women will think you are a bad boy (which I don't mind )

Just curious, have you ever asked a medical professional if there is anything in your environment or diet that could affect your nail condition?

Black nails for Halloween? Anyone can do that. Black nails every day? That's stylin'!

I have a clear polish.

Ive been toying with the idea of black nails, that satin Chanel polish is what got me thinking.

Ive got black nail polish and a clear one with metallic blue glitter!
Very rarely use either, though.

I feel quite like a bad boy with dark eyeshadow and black nail polish.
Ive gotten a few looks, and nothing but positive comments.

When done right, it can look cool....but yeah, the chipped black polish is very emo. I suppose that's a not a bad thing....just a bit of a trendy thing... I see loadsa guys in London with chipped black nail polish, chipped in exactly the same way as their girlfriends. I wonder how much time they spend chipping away at their nailpolish....

Clear nail polish looks exactly the same as nicely buffed nails, so I wouldn't think anything of that. On the right guy, colored nail polish can be a very cool statement. He needs to have that rocker/bad boy vibe.

Clear? I don't think it makes a difference, really. In looks, that is.
Any other colour... well, if I was a straight guy, I definitely wouldn't do it. But whatever floats your boat.

Dark nail polish on men is about on the same level as eyeliner on me... to me... a select few can pull it off...

As for clear polish... I imagine it's pretty hard to notice...

it may help if you file your nails instead of cutting them. it helps when my nails peel.
