#MalePolish…is this really a thing?
Men are finally starting to make their mark on the beauty industry. While they’ll never catch up to the $260+ billion dollar industry that mainly serves women, their demand for skincare and hair care is on the rise due to social media and current trends.
Now, due to the influence of Marc Jacobs, men might be starting to buy and wear nail polish. Yes, you read that right, and it’s not just the rock stars. In the past, musicians such as Marilyn Manson, Johnny Depp, Jared Leto, and A.J. McLean have all sported nail polish many times; but the trend Marc Jacobs deemed #malepolish is now spreading to the general public.
Even cooler, men aren’t just rocking basic black. Some of them are even busting out lavender, glitter shades, and metallics. They are going all out. While the majority of the men who are sporting this trend are gay, there are definitely some straight men who are stepping out of their comfort zone to experiment with something new…and we applaud them.
