    Men Are Sharing Photos Of Their Nails Using The Hashtag #Malepolish

    Man manis FTW.

    A few months ago, designer Marc Jacobs started posting selfies of his dark manicures with the hashtag #malepolish.

    "I think [a manicure is] a way for any man to put the finishing touch to his look," Jin Soon Choi, founder of JINsoon nail polish, told W magazine in an interview about Jacobs (whose "Mani Monday" posts get thousands of likes).

    And the trend has really picked up.

    There are over 1,130 images that use the #malepolish hashtag on Instagram.

    Some men prefer one sleek color...

    Totally cute.

    While others opt for nail art.

    Why not make a statement?

    Some guys geek out over finding the ~perfect~ polish.

    "Anyone who knows me knows I've been obsessed with finding the perfect oxblood nailpolish for a man," says @andycedenomakeup in his caption. "This is the closest I've gotten. Two coats of black with one coat of #opimidnightinmoscow and #jinsoontopgloss."

    And other guys go for a classic black lacquer and then flaunt it at the gym.

    Muscles + manis = love at first sight.

    There are guys who prefer talons.

    I don't think Kim could keep up with this Kardashian.

    And there are other guys who keep it short and simple.


    Some guys love to show off their manis with cigarettes.

    Smokin' hot.

    And other guys rock their manis with teddy bear phone cases.

    Look at that chrome finish!

    Beauty noobs experiment with polish...

    Adding just a little onyx to that Blue Steel.

    And so do beauty experts.

    Take makeup artist and beauty blogger Derek Thomas Viers, for example.

    As long as it feels good on ya, keep doing it!

    Man manis? Yes, please.
