Guys can be interested in nail art too. Recently a young guy that is a good friend of mine said he wanted me to paint some crazy mural on his nails. Not for him to keep on as a manicure, but to showcase something new and different here on my blog that I hadn't done before. Aw, such a clever way to ask! Of course, let's do this thing!
I let him totally pick his theme and he said "beaches and maybe a shark." I'm flattered that he thought I would be able to fit all of that on 1 fingernail.... but on very short guy nails that would be impossible. So I split it up a bit. Then last minute he decided he also wanted deer antlers. (He is in no way a "sissy" kind of guy. He is very outdoor-sy and loves to hunt and work on cars. A real man's man! Lol)
He said he wanted to do this as an experiment, so this is what I came up with.
A shark ready to bite!
A bit of sand and ocean with some palm leaves and coconuts showing.
Beach with an umbrella
Silhouette of a palm tree.
And the deer antlers he wanted is the Browning logo.
So there you have it, nail art on nubs is possible! I'll update with how long he kept them on when I talk to him again.
Is the issue of nail polish on men controversial to you? Do you have an opinion either way? I think it's really strange in my opinion. Not like in a negative way, it's just that you rarely see it done and it goes against social norms. I'm sure if it was a more common thing to see, then I would not think anything of it.
I hope this was interesting for my one male nail polish follower - Guy Polish Jim!
He has a blog, check it out. :)Pin It
