Polish days!! I skipped last one of this one of world’s best known online nail art event because of several reasons, but I’m back again! November’s theme is MAN-icure…actually I didn’t know anything about those special awareness called “Movember”, but yeah it make sense that October is awareness month for breast cancer which is much for ladies, so next month for guys…why not?

When I saw the theme, the first thing I’ve done was to ask my hub if he can help me or not. I told him what I’m thinking and what I need as his help, and he was super easy to answer me back “YES”. So here you can see is my MAN-icure…the mani I’ve done on MY MAN’s nail!! :D

You see, it’s not me :D As one of testicular cancer awareness color is yellow (mod: I’ve seen it’s orchid later on, but I’ve also seen A LOT of yellow ribbon for testicular cancer awareness goods. Well…I think most important part is to “aware”, so I’ll keep it like this) I’ve let him choose his favorite yellow/gold shade in my stash and it was Jade’s amazing golden holo Mystic Gold. This shade itself on him was already SUPER gorgeous, but I wanted to spice it up so I applied small free-hand art on ring finger (I like the campaign copy “love (your) nuts”, hehe) and black spotted on rest of them.

I love gold, I love black spotted, but I think the combination of these two is really cool and better looking on GUYS! What’s also nice was my hub really enjoyed to get his nail painted, saying “It’s not everyday stuff for me, but might be cool if I can wear it sometimes…especially for some kind of events :)”.

さて2ヶ月ぶりです海外ネイル部ことPolish Days、乳がん撲滅月間である10月の次の月である今月11月は精巣がん撲滅月間だそうで、その絡みで今回のテーマは「MAN-icure」であります。女性を大事にね月間の次は男性を大事にね月間ということでしょうか。乳がんでピンクリボンはよく見るけど精巣がんって何が行われてるの?という点は「Movember」という言葉とともにGoogleさん等にご説明頂くとして、でも単なるマスキュランなネイル(ひげモチーフとか)って面白くないなーということで今回はうちのダンナの手にご登場頂きました。単語だけでいえばMan+manicure=MAN-icure、ならばこの解釈間違ってないよね!ということで。

さて今回精巣がん撲滅運動ということで金色です。本来イエローリボン=黄色なんでしょうが気にしなーい。薬指にポスカで簡単にアートして、後はBlack Spottedをさっとかけて、結構クールな感じのメンズネイルになったと思うのですがどうでしょうか。というか玉虫金・銀ってむしろ男性にこそ合う気がするのですが。本人は結構楽しかったようで、また何かあったらやりたいなー、と申しておりました。メンズネイル、あまりやることも考えることも無いものですがたまにはいいもんだなと思います。

  4. That's awesome, & it's so funny because I call my fella lovenuts, as a nickname :-) Not only that, he's letting me paint his nails this weekend before we go out, since we didn't get to do it for Halloween. Hooray for men that let us decorate them! :-D

      Actually I'm not even a huge fan of gold ITSELF either, but this one is an exception :)
      Also I have to say I'm happy that my hub is taking care of his hand himself really nicely, he own more hand creams than I do!! *lol*
