ASAP Rocky Wishes More Men Would Rock Nail Art ‘Without Feeling Feminine’

ASAP Rocky

*ASAP Rocky was seen rocking some wild nail art during Milan and Paris Fashion Week. 

In an interview with Vogue, the Harlem-born rapper, 30, noted why more men should rock an artsy manicure. 

“I feel like men should be able to do nail art without feeling feminine,” he said. 

Rocky explained his love of the trend came when a ‘really, really good lady’ drew Prada’s logo and other references to their Fall/Winter 2019 collection on his nails for his recent collaboration with Italian fashion brand. 

In recent photos posted to his Instagram, the rapper’s nails are on full display — showing everything from American flags and yellow smiley faces to flames and neon checkered designs, per Daily Mail

Rocky has also had the words “love”  etched on his nails as well as “F**k off.”

Meanwhile, some of his 11 million followers aren’t really feeling the trend. 

“Can’t like it. I don’t even like a lot of jewelry on men,” one female fan responded in the comments of the post. 

“Only homosexuals paint their nails. Rockers paint exclusively in black,” another commenter said. 

Sarah Gibson-Tuttle, founder of Beverly Hills salon and nail polish brand Olive & June, praised Rocky for his great act of self-expression.  

“We support self-expression for everyone – especially when it comes to nail art,’ she told 

“We have always offered a men’s service at the salon, and men who are into polish usually go for an edgy black or experimental color. 

“Nail art is like getting a tattoo without the commitment. One day you can cover your nails in stars, the next week you can get a snakeskin accent nail, or spell out what you want to say in lettering,” she added. 

This week, ASAP Rocky is set to unveil his creative collective popup AWGE, in London department store Selfridges, which will reportedly feature his street wear line for men (including make-up).

He told Vogue, “Making music is fun. It’s always fun. In a way, it’s a parallel with fashion because I think the right key, the right silhouette, the right look – the right expression – can trigger an emotional connection: sometimes a nostalgic connection and sometimes an enticing connection with people.”

What say our male readers, are you down with neon nail art?
