Yay or Nay Wednesday: Nail polish for men
Makeup for men is creeping into normality - okay, well maybe not normality, but a surprising amount of guys have embraced eyeliner (Frankie Cocoza for example) - and with the current obsession for nail art, male grooming brand EvolutionMan have decided the time is right for nail polish.
The five admittedly masculine bottles of polish above are the result, consisting of three metallic colours and a matte and gloss top coat.
"It is definitely less permanent than a tattoo, and you can change the color depending on your choice of mood or fashion," said EvolutionMan founder Marco Bernadini, who also explained his choice of colours, citing 'new car finishes' as the inspiration for the metallics. Marco believes that having pristine nails is starting to be placed in higher importance by guys, whether it's just having a clean manicure ("suggesting success and power") or "a bold color to show they're not confined to society's rules".
I'm all for freedom of expression, but I know what my reaction would be if a man approached me with metallic silver nails, no matter how many of societies rules he was or was not confined to. So - nail polish for men: yay or nay? Cast your vote below.
