Why Do Guys Wear Black Nail Polish?

You might be asking yourself a lot of times why do guys wear black nail polish, right? Are they following specific reasons or something else that I don’t know yet?

It is because we get to see a lot of times guys with black nail polish in real life and even also on TVs or on Social Media. So it’s obvious to get struck by such curious kinds of questions.

It’s completely fine if a girl goes with any kind of colors for her nails, no such untypical questions pop up in mind. Because we feel that nail polish is only for girls and they can wear whatever they want.

But that’s not completely so true. Nail polish is not a gender-oriented thing. Nail polish was not even specified one way that it could only be used as a female beauty product when it was manufactured for the first time.

If we dive a bit into the history of nail polish, we’ll get to see that it was being used by males and females for marking their social status. It helped at that time to identify who belongs to which social category.

Over time, nail polish gradually gets merged with beauty and cosmetic products mainly for women.

And this is the reason why right in this era we only know that nail polish is a female beauty product and for women only. So we don’t get perplexed seeing a variety of nail colors on girls this time.

But when we spot guys after guys with black nails, then it’s really perplexing to figure this thing out without Googling it. 😃

We get such questions, like, is that a new Instagram trend? Or a challenge? What’s that actually?


Yeah! It is…

Alright, without further ado, let’s get to know the real fact behind “Why Do Guys Wear Black Nail Polish?”

Why Do Guys Wear Black Nail Polish

First of all, dressing up is a personal preference. In most cases, it is found that people are more likely to dress up the stuff that makes them feel good.

Second of all, a quite generous number of people are found to adopt style from others, thinking it might go cool with them too.

Now, a guy is wearing black nail polish, it can also be his personal preference.

Also, if we categorized all the colors in terms of masculine and feminine brand personality, then you can see, that black falls under the masculine category. And yellow, purple, green, and pink, are the colors that fall under the feminine category.

This can also be a strong reason why do guys wear black Nail Polish. Maybe it’s true that guys (straight) are very conscious of picking up stuff that won’t question their personality.

And you can say, this is now becoming a signature color for guys who wish to paint their nails. They are choosing the black color as a nail polish being influenced by others. That’s completely okay! What do you think?

Can guys wear different color nail polishes also?

As I mentioned earlier, it’s completely a personal choice. So yes guys can also wear different colors of nail polishes as well. There’s no restriction on it.

The time is changing. Now nail polish is not a thing for girls only to use. There are guys who like to play around with different shades and even can go for nail art and acrylic nails.

Recently I spotted the American singer David Bowden (aka Pink Sweats) who appeared with beautiful nail art on his song “At My Worst“.

I feel great to see it. Cause I see, still a lot many guys feel shy thinking that what others will be saying on his this move of painting his nails.

But hopefully, that’s reached an end. Now guys can also go for any color of nail polish as well as black too!

At least by these celebrities, the barrier of doubtable questions regarding nail polish and nail art towards men will completely break off, and it will be a lot easier for guys to put on their favorite color without getting fear to be judged by others.

Hence a normal guy won’t get any hesitation to go with his favorite color and adored his nail with his signature style.
