Why do women paint their nails? To girls, have you ever questioned yourself why you love to paint them? To men, does this also intrigue you to ask, maybe, a girl sitting next to you?
My boyfriend is one of the most encouraging people I have ever met in my life. Not to mention supportive and opinionated. We may have different views about things, but he makes some weird points that I do get to consider at times. we openly discuss things, even about fashion and beauty. One day, he said that he likes red nail polish. I couldn't agree more than that.
Some women really take some time doing their nails in salons. Some women don't bother. Well, for me, it depends.
Most women find it pretty, sexy, and appealing when they paint their nails... but not all women are doing so for some reason. It takes time, money, or even effort to get their nails done. But it has always been in the history that women paint their nails.
It is made easier now though that women can buy nail varnishes over the store. Early Chinese women however have to make it for themselves. Just so you know, if in case you want to put it to the test, ingredients such as beeswax, flower petals, and egg whites are responsible for the pink to red colors on their nails.
The Egyptians also painted their nails back in the time of Queen Nefertiti and the famous Cleopatra. It was a way of knowing women's social status during the time. Powerful women paint their nails in darker shades, such as red, while lower-class women paint it in pale colors.
Upon reading on the internet about painting nails, some find it less appealing. Some would rather wear their nails plain and clean because nothing should be hidden. Some answered that it was for the reason of avoiding the habit of nail-biting. Since nail polishes have awful tastes, it will then help them control the bad habit. Some would only paint their toenails. The sight of toenails or even the feet itself and all bare is just an awful sight, painting it will make it more presentable and "prettier". Some likes to have it painted because it hides the uneven coloration on the nails. Or some just feel pretty whenever they are wearing one.
Whatever the reason is, it has been a trend for a long time. Luckily, women of today have more choices in getting their nails done. It can be done at home, in a salon, or with friends. More colors are even available in specialty stores, ranging in different brands and prices.
