Tbh, girl or boy, I don't care what they enjoy. (provided its safe etc) Dh is with me on allowing our children to explore things - especially as a child! How else do you learn.

Asked dh about this and he said flat out no, our nephew always wants acrylics on because his mum does them from home and would rather sit with her than be outside playing with his toys, he got so upset at Xmas when brother brought niece a truck of her own to play with...
I want our son to grow up trying lots of things so we will see when we come to it what happens.

Im a pretty gender specific person so no i wouldnt paint my sons nails if i had one, i would prob let dd do it for him but would wipe it off before going anywhere, i dont like the look of it on kids fullstop but if she catches me doing it i have to do hers aswell so we can be twins. Nailpolish on a male looks funny imo

I don't have a son, only girls, but I prefer my kids not to wear nail polish at all. My eldest dd is 11 and I've just started letting her try it out.
Having said that, I find nail polish (dark colours) and eyeliner on men really hot. I've asked DH to give it a go but he refuses..spoil sport :P

i used to paint the boys nails when they were babies as it was the only way to tell them apart.
I don't paint my nails, so the boys don't ask. But if they wanted to paint their nails it would be totally ok with me.
I do love lip gloss though, and so do my boys. They usually choose the coral colours but sometimes H will get out the bright red. I think it looks nice on them. Hubby doesn't care either way. Although when the boys put on gloss, they have to put it on daddy too! He actually looks hot with a little gloss on

It wouldn't bother me. I love a man who is secure enough in himself to not be afraid of wearing nail polish. I think gender specific norms are ridiculous.

My seven yr olds love pink....
they often wear it.
Their response to anyone who questions them (or says it's a girls colour) "Why? Pink's only a mixture of red and white. Colours belong to everybody."
Love my boys..
