Should boys wear green nail polish?
We were in the shops buying some gifts for the kids cousins. Caleb asked for some green nail polish. He wanted monster nails. Rachel has quite a lot of different colours and I could see that at 4 he was just curios. I had no problem with it and he is now sporting some rather fancy green finger and toenails.
Yme was not that keen and maintains that I should have just said no boys don’t wear nail polish. But this is not totally true, there are many boys and men, goths, punks and people who do wear nail polish. I see no reason at this point to make huge gender differentiation when it is just curiosity because his sister does it. And besides he loves green so why not green finger nails.
I asked on twitter what people thought of a 4 year old boy wearing green nail polish and funny enough most women had no problem with it but a lot of the men thought it was a no no.
What do you think?
