Same with nail polish.

Same with...
Same with a lot of things. But nobody thinks about that before wearing them, because their heads aren't blue (or pink, if you're French).

So don't wear either one.

Poskim? For das Yehudis? Feh. Chutz mizeh, there are some who will encourage it, either for shidduchim or otherwise. (Feh for that, too. Ask me what I think of makeup.)

Needless to say, i took the nail polish off right then and there, and gave the color away to sumone else. So now the question remains: Why is it looked upon so badly?! What is wrong with a nice color? How do men view nail polish? Is it really something that attracts them to a girl?!
Different men view it differently, as with all things.
Why didn't you save it and put it on your toes? Nobody would see them anyways....

Why not?

No piskei din on das Yehudis, just people trying to restore sensitivities that are long gone and sorely missed.

Too long= when you can't make sure that they're clean for netilat yadayim vichidome.

If it's too long to be clean, then there's a halacha.

Didn't the Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka wear nail polish ? Anyways Imho as long as it's not purple or black or long with glitter and stuff it's fine. To me it's the same as make up.
