    hi this is addressed to guys really but anyones opinion welcome obviously,

    do guys think nail varnish looks good? bad? or do you really not care?

    i was just wondering coz loads of girls wear it, especially on holiday or w/e but i have no idea whether guys notice, find it attractive or unattractive, and i know wearing it isn't suppossed to attract guys (or mayb it is but i always thought it was kinda for your own benefit)

    anyway please do the poll thing (if i can set it up its the first time i've tried) and comment

    thank you!!!

    In my opinion, enamel paint is good for decorating metal, but not body parts.

    I know I'm a girl but I hate seeing people with naked toe nails! If someone is going to get their feet out I at least like to see something pretty and sparkly redeeming them because most people's feet are gross.



    My ex used to get really angry if I didn't look after my nails. He was really camp though.

    Yea the cheapo streaky brands are cheap - but not all polish is cheap looking or price wise!!! If you go for a colour that isn't gross, ghastly then its alright IMO. I use suttle colours - bright yellows and etc are not my cuppa T.

    I'm so used to wearing nail varnish, it looks odd without it. Rimmel Green Envy FTW!

    Oh, and no for boys wearing it.

    I like nail polish as long as your nails are quite short and it isn't half chipped off!!

    I think it's little details like nail polish looking neat etc that shows you take care of yourself

    I love nail varnish it's so girly and pretty. I don't really care if others think it's chavvy or cheap I'd still wear it. I'm a bit of a perfectionist with it sometimes though as it has to match my outfit/accerssories/underwear. On my hands I tend to have french manicured nail extentions rather then paint my nails everyday according to what I'm wearing.

    weird..me, and every single other girl I know, love it..strange how vastly opinions differ.
    I think that really long nails are a bit chavvy, especially REALLY long fake french manicured ones.

    but i think short nails painted (especially in dark colours) like you see on people like lauren conrad in the hills is super cute.

    LOVE it.

    I like everything to be natural and my makeup is minimal and I just think painted nails are not needed. I dont even wear jewelry but I think thats just me.
