Guys Who Paint Their Fingernails Black - What Kind Of Personality?

boodiceboodice Posts: 269Banned
I'm seeing a umber of Asian guys these days painting their fingernails black. A good example would be that guy in Coffee Prince who is one of the emploeyees in the coffee shop. I also see them i the street.

Sometimes I think they look a bit gangster.

But.. do you know any of these guys and what do you think is their typiclal background and personality. Why do they paint their nails black? I wonder if it signifies anything and if it comes from any particular idea.

    ^ Yeah, it used to be a goth thing. I agree.

    But I still think it's kind of a goth thing. I really hate guys wearing black nailpolish.
    I don't know why, but I just dislike it. My step-cousin had long black fingernails.
    And I just persuade him to get it off..I just took his fingernails and get if off ^^
    He didn't bother though. Kind of rude of me, but my step-cousin is kind of fake sometimes..-.-

    I think it gives a goth/japanese rock image? And that equals to cool..?

    It means they're emo. Or maybe they just like painting their fingernails black. Who cares?

    IMO: there's nothing cool about a guy who paints his nails black. i'm not into the whole VK/Jrock scene so i would just think they're emo or goth. "gangsta" types wouldn't have the time of day to paint their nails they could be looking for some new kicks~~ image

    I think it can look good. Especially if it's only the thumb or 1-2 fingers. (:
    But I guess it does look better without it...

    Anyway.
    You shouldn't judge people based on nailpolish.
    All guys who wear nailpolish don't have the same personality. xD

    I used to do this. Only on my left hand though (because i couldn't o the right) no particular reason, I just liked the way it looked. And I am in no way emo/goth/vk.
    honestly... you're not half as special as you think you are.
