So I did my nails and was all excited. I have a metalic silver and then my “accent nail” is a pale pink with a little red heart. They came out so good so I top coated the hell outta them so they’d stay!
Turns out, my man isn’t so into them. He said he likes “glitter and shine” but doesn’t like the metalic quality of the silver. Since his eyesight isn’t great he says the heart looks like a blob most of the time. SIGH
So since I’m on medium-alert starting this weekend, I’m seriously considering changing my nail color even though I really love my current manicure. So I thought I’d take it to my bees….
Would you change your manicure based solely on your SO’s preference?

@MexiPino: I don’t even think my FI would notice my nails, let alone have an opinion on them. My hair, yes. But nails? He could care less. I am assuming it is for a potential ring? I wouldn’t really worry about it because you’ll have lots of years to have different nail colours with the ring. I have a lovely ring and don’t bother with nails, ever. You’ll be so happy when it happens that you won’t even be thinking about that.

I really, really, really, really doubt your so really cares what your nails look like. Really doubt it. If you asked him, and that’s what he said, he was probably just speaking his mind and doesn’t really care.
Do what you love. In my experience, few men really care about things like that, and quite frankly, they shouldn’t. If he loves you, and you love your nails, there shouldn’t be a problem.

Yeah, my man is weird and is REALLY into my nails. I knew immediately that he didn’t like them because he always comments on a new manicure the first time he holds my hand! He brings home nail polish for me pretty regularly!

Back when I was waiting, I tried to cater to his taste somewhat. He always wanted me to get a french manicure, and because I didn’t want to I decided to do a very muted pink nail as opposed to my normal firey red or black lol.
He hates black nails, but I LOVE them! After we get married I’m gonna tell him he can suck it, and will have to put up with my “witch nails” as he likes to call them when I paint them black lol.

@MexiPino: Well, if it’s a relationship “thing” for you two, then I would probably just change them. No bigge right? Sounds like you have lots to choose from, lol. Same as I wouldn’t cut my hair short, which FI hates, I wouldn’t intentionally keep something on that he hated and was easy to change.

I can’t paint my nails because of my work, but if I did, I don’t think I would paint them with his opinion in mind. SO probably wouldn’t even notice if I painted my nails at all.

@MexiPino: good lord. This is too much. If he likes glittery polish so much he should get a mani. Everything we do in life is not to please our man. This is so ridiculous.

My SO is not a fan of nail polish at all.. I think the stink is all he can think of. 😛
Luckily, I m blessed with strong and very white nails, so I usually just keep them in shape and buffer or coat them in clear nail polish, but every now and then I coordinatee them to a dress or my everyday clothes.
My nails follow my whims.

@MexiPino: I have one of those BFs that *absolutely* notices my hair, nails and makeup: that’s one of the reasons I initially liked dating him :-p He takes alot of pride in his appearance, and definitely appreciates me taking pride in mine 🙂
These are my current waiting nails: he likes the “pointy” look and he actually helped me pick out the color too 🙂 I’m sure the lady at Sally Beauty thought it was a little odd he was helping, but we had fun 🙂

@badabing88: Yeah, I love that he notices and cares. Well, except when he doesn’t like my favorite manicure 😛 But I put thought into it and I’m totally clumsy so getting a manicure right takes more time than I’d like, so it’s awesome that he appreciates it.

@MexiPino: I feel ya. Like I said, I personally LIKE the he notices my effort, though I understand others who might say that him caring about my nails or hair is ‘shallow.’

@MexiPino: I want to choose the 3rd option on the poll because it’s funny. 😛
Seriously, my SO likes that I’ve started to really take better care of myself, nails included. He hasn’t commented on colors, but I normally just get a french mani with gel nails, so I can keep it on for 2 weeks without issues. My toenails I go crazy with, purple, silver, red, whatever takes my fancy.
Going back to your question, if it bothers you that it bothers him, then I would change it. If you don’t want to change it (and only being on medium alert) then don’t.

Im sure your guy would rather you were happy with your nails than he is ^^
