Is it wrong for guys to apply nail polish to their feet?
I was on a photo sharing site where guys did that...and believe it or not...most were not 'gay'...infact many were married...and their wives or girlfriends loved it...

What is your opinion on the matter...is it wrong? or is it just art and self creativeness?

What's next, guys wearing eye liner or sporting a tramp stamp?

I wouldn't call it wrong, in the sense of immoral, but it is well outside the norms of male behavior.

I could never imagine doing it.

I don't know anyone who as an adult does it--but I did have a lot of goth/alternative male friends/boyfriends who did back in our teenage years.

I couldn't vote. Needed "Young" as an option.

I've known several teens who sported this look. Usually their girlfriends did the painting. They didn't sport "girly" colors. Mostly green or blue or black.

There used to be a locally famous criminal defense lawyer in our city. He was an older guy, known for being a big partier as well as a really good lawyer. That I know of, he wasn't gay--he'd been married and had a couple of kids. I saw him in the grocery store once, barefoot, with his toenails painted. Couldn't ever conceive of the events that led up to that.

I've never seen it. Two of my kids are in college, and I've never seen it on their friends either, maybe it's a regional thing if some young kids are doing it. Or it could be a Goth thing. I wouldn't expect to see a typically-dressed man with painted toes. I guess if a guy really wanted to do it though, why not, it's their toes, but to me it's a turn-off.

Penn Jillette from "Penn and Teller" paints his one finger nail red.

Every month or so I will get a manicure and pedicure with my girlfriend. I have to admit I kinda like having well groomed nails. I wont get them painted, but will have a clearcoat applied. Makes them look healthy. BTW, Im not gay....... not that theres anything wrong with that.

I was at the VA Hospital for a post surgery apptmt and in the waiting room were two men who were identically dressed (not twins).

They were in total green...form fitting tank tops...tight short shorts...green socks and green shoes.

They also had their fingernails done in green...not sure of the toe nails but would imagine they were also done being they were so Immaculate and neat in dress.

NO aspirtions here but they were very neat and clean looking...your guess is as good as mine.
