Something funky. Like maybe a different colour for each nail, especially fluro and glow in the dark. Pink nail polish seems a bit juvenile, red can be a little, I dunno, strong? But yeah, it's not something I care much about.

Some men like a woman to have a nice clean French Manicure (to the clueless men, that's the white tipped nails) because it represents class or just because it's a clean look. Some men do not like it and prefer color.

- Clear polish
- Neon Pink or Neon Construction Orange
- Peach or Coral polish
- Browns/Deep browns
- Deep Blood Red - the Vampy look. . .
- Blue polish

The list goes on. . .

What polish visually appeals to you/turns you on - and what makes you crinkle your nose when you see it?

And guys - you are visual creatures - don't act like nothing is up in that coconut of yours and say that you have never noticed. . . because if your wife/GF had black polish with red tips and little rhinestones all over the tips of them for a dinner to go out with your boss or colleague(s)- and it was not part of a Halloween costume. . .
As long as it goes with what she is wearing I'm fine with it. What I think looks ghetto are the nails that are extended more than 1 inch off the finger. Nails with jewlery embedded also are whorish IMHO.

It says she must not be very attractive. Why the hell would I even look at her nails?

You don't look during handjobs

I am a female and cannot understand the waste of time on this nail crap. How can you work outside in the garden, paint, refinish furniture, go camping, clean the house, groom the dog and yes saddle horses with your nails like that. I vote for just neatly clipped short and natural unpolished.

I wouldn't worry. Although I said in this thread its a turn on to have well manicured and Clean French Manicure def. preference.....99% of males who share my opinion just see it as a bonus. No big deal and plenty of other ways you can be attractive/turn on males if you so wish, than that.

Yeah, I smashed my thumb nail and the ladies have been giving me a hard time like I was trying to paint my nails black or something. I think they are the only ones that notice things like that.

My thoughts are that it depends on the outfit. Other than that it isn't something I notice. The more a natural, clear color the better. Red doesn't say sensual or anything to me. Even dark red lipstick isn't a turn on either.

My nails are short to medium length and I am a nail polish junkie. I can't get enough of it. I follow all the nail polish trends and when a new color is deemed 'hot' by fashion mags, I go out and purchase it. I do my own nails and toe nails and most of the men, that I have encountered in my life, love the fact that I take time out to pamper myself and do my nails. They said it shows them that I take pride in my appearance and like to take care of myself.

I have horses (I'm a woman lol) and I paint my nails all the time, given they chip within a day due to grooming, tacking up and riding, but I think it's just something fun that can change your look thats not permanent. For some reason my boyfriend who rides horses with me likes teal on me, probably because it's his favorite color :-)
