Rock stars have been doing it for quite a while, it has been seen on the catwalk for several seasons, and more men are adding this trend to their grooming habits: polishing nails. Men are getting more and more important for beauty salons. Not only the male come to drop of the girlfriend or wife anymore, but more often guys stay in the salon for a manicure or pedicure. I (Hunter Niels) always went to the beauty salon, together with my dad, once a year during summer holiday. One time I won’t forget quickly. It happened on a cruise in Alaska, my dad and I had a special ‘soleil treatment’. In the end our nails were so extremely shiny, that by Christmas my eyes still hurt, when looking to my dad’s big tho, because it shined so hard.
I think it’s a very good beauty development that men more often get pedi’s and mani’s. If you want to wear some sandals it is very important to have well threated nails and feet. One of the trends spotted lately, is black nail polish for men. Celebrities like Christiano Ronaldo, Adam Lambert and David Beckham have all been spotted with black nails. It could be the perfect finishing touch, when going for a rock and roll, or grunge look. Personal favourite is black mat nail polish from KOH. Other good alternatives are: Chanel, OPI and YSL.
