Lacquer Up: Nail the Latest Male Grooming Trend
In the ever-changing world of male grooming, one trend has stood out from the crowd. Male manicures are the latest beauty trend to be adopted by male-identifying people, and we love to see it.
From David Bowie to Lil Yachty and Kurt Cobain to Harry Styles, rockstars to pop stars, the last year and a half of stay at home orders and TikTok trends has seen male-identifying people step away from bare phalanges and give manicures, lacquer and nail art a go.
As with most men’s fashion, effortlessness is vital; there’s no acetone here. Chipped and worn are a crucial part of the look, a single stroke of black left untouched until the natural nail reappears from under the colour; perhaps even months later is the way to go.
And while perfectionism is far from the point, there is no shying away from more intricate designs here. Nail art and maximalist designs are here to stay, and we could not be more excited to see what micro-trends pop up in the coming seasons.
As we continue to break down the barriers of gender conformity, nails have become another avenue by which people can express themselves.
Similar to piercings or tattoos, this outward expression of self via your the blank canvas that is your nails can be incredibly empowering.
This new wave of man-icures has cemented its place in the mainstream, helping to dismantle gender stereotypes and make space for male-identifying people to experiment and embrace this fun and creative expression of self.
