It really depends upon the shade of red as well as the skin color of the woman wearing it. As Pitt Chick said "So don't wear any"!

I definitely agree.

Men with long stringy hair, who never take off their greasy baseball hats look like fools (and usually smell awful).

Then you wouldn't like me, then. I don't wear nail polish but red lipstick's a big part of me.

Some guys don't like the red choices. Others love it.

But do you think red nails look more "obnoxious" than black?

I have long"ish" nails - REAL - I like reds occasionally, depends on the shade. I do cut my nails down when they get to be too long, I'm not a "Dragon Lady". Now that I've gotten older I don't do the red lips, I've gotten more into stains, glosses, etc.

I don't care for black fingernails either btw. I also don't care for those that get the fake nails w/the airbrushing, checkerboarding, diamonds, etc.

I love black nail polish on really short natural nails! I've switched over to gun metal gray lately, though, to fit the trend that's been going on for the past 3 months.

I like black polish, too, although I wear it on my toes rather than fingernails.

I remember being in high school and adoring white lipstick. I thought it was the most awesome look. It makes me shudder to think of it now. It didn't look good.

But some girls wore a shinny gold lipstick and it actually looked quite pretty.
