I don't wear it for a number of reasons.

For one thing it isn't healthy. Nail polish is full of bad chemicals that enter your blood stream through the nail and travel directly to your liver. Then, the bad chemicals sit in your liver for the rest of your life. To their credit, a few of the companies that make nail polish have started to clean up their act a bit, giving folks not quite as bad of chemicals to lay on their nails to get into their blood stream and eventually come to rest in their liver.

It also isn't healthy for the nail itself. Many women have completely ruined nice smooth nails with gel manicures, as well as gotten fungal infections from acrylic/false nails .

Nail polish chips, and for some reason, especially the reds. If you cook without food service gloves, you cant help but eat some chips and even feed them to your family.

Ive heard vets complain that the darker polishes remind them of dead people.

My husband preferred short nails, unpolished. Maybe a lot of women wear polish for themselves or each other.

I don’t think that men notice or care.

Believe it or not, there are some guys with a nail fetish. They DO look at and care about a woman's nails. Yrs ago a friend dated a guy like that (found out there were many others) and he would pick and choose her nail colors and paint her nails. He liked them long.

Most of the time I never notice unless there are some unusual designs involved. Some of them, I have a lot of respect for the person doing the painting but then I immediately think, why would someone spend money to do that? I guess I just prefer a more natural appearance. (I’m a guy.)

It does not matter to me as long as their nails are clean, you know, not like they have been overhauling their car's engine (which would impress me), though I do not like designs on fingernails like Hello Kitty!

I think men notice nail color more on feet than on the hands.
