I am a man. I like when a woman's nail are clean. No loud colors. If she wears loud colors it makes me think she may be kind of wacky or not stable. I like it when they wear light colors. Seems more feminine. When women wear different colors on each finger it scares me. Seems to be a trend nowadays that a lot of women are wearing different colors on each finger. It's just weird. And if nails are all chipped and not maintained I think she is not clean.

I'm into nail art (designs like flowers etc) and I've received several compliments from men on my nails. I wear all colors but I keep my fingernails short. I never paint my toenails.

I have a guy friend that gets turned off with red nails but I have not heard of a "turn on" color.

One other thing, as a guy I look at it like a sunk cost. If she has to get her nails done every month it’s a huge waste of money.

Mostly this, except my favorite is red and I'm inclined to think black goes with a goth or evil personality.

I usually keep them short with red polish on. I do other colours as well, but I get complimented the most with red. Everyone says it looks good with my skin. I just got a manicure and a pedicure the other day so I can get my feet ready for sandal season. Normally I do manicures and pedicures at home, but when winter is over, I get pedicures professionally done.

It also depends on the length of the nails too. Also the shoes. Some women do no justice for their toes by wearing sandals that do absolutely nothing to compliment their feet.

Long, fake nails don't really do it for me in the first place. Natural nails are always best and it rarely looks trashy and cheap if done properly.

French pedicures are disgusting. Toenails are not supposed to be long enough to have a white strip on the end. Cut those things!

Hahaha, you can get short ones. The nail is clear with a little line. But I like the bright colors on the feet.I currently have the Mariah Carey opi silver glitter on my toes.

Put this in the category of something I absolutely never, ever think about and care about even less than that.
