Fedez and the other cool men rocking manicure

A slap (with nail polish) to toxic masculinity

By Alessandra Nava

In a matter of minutes, he crashed the Internet. A couple of days ago Fedez released its collection of gel polish, NooN by Fedez, in collaboration with Layla Cosmetics. The whole collection, made up of a series of glazes with colorful pop shades, sold so fast that the landing page was soon sent in shutdown.

The rapper has accustomed us to extravagant and super cool manicures, with emojis, drawings and sweet messages, from Spongebob sketches to the Sanremo themed one. The trusted manicurist of Fedez and Chiara, aka @unghiedellamadonna, helped the rapper make the male nail-art a (cool and refreshing) thing.

We thank Fedez for bringing this beautiful trend to Italy. Also, we'd like to acknowledge that many other male stars have worn nail polish as a beauty accessory, making it much more virile and sexy than outdated prejudices made us think.

Johnny Depp, a living wild soul, wears it frequently, from the Pirates of the Caribbean's set to red carpet premieres, fully dressed and with all black enamel and blingy silver rings.

Harry Styles also experimented with manicures, playing with his irreverent, fluid and ironic image. Well, someone like Harry could pull off anything, but we fell in love with the super contemporary and necessary message he conveys with his colored nails.

Machine Gun Kelly, a Californian punk soul, always shows his noir mani off, even when it's chipped, pairing it with a Berluti pink suit, which distorts all gender stereotypes.

Always in Cali, there's Vinnie Hacker, a very young Tik Toker and model with an angel-like face. Beautiful, ethereal, and at the same time covered with gothic tattoos and hardware or pearl rings and necklaces, he always dyes his nails black, uses eyeliner and experiments in the company of his equally beautiful friend Justin Huxhold. Young, fluid, and not afraid to dare.

On the other coast of the Pacific, in the futuristic Seoul, NCT U are found showing off their manicure in the Misfit video. Taeyong, leader of the band, wears a neon manicure and a headband from Chanel, which only makes women's clothing. How nice to see guys playing with their image, too, regardless of their sexuality and looks.

Guys, you are so fricking cool!
