If you’re wondering why you’ve seen hunky actors like Zac Efron on social media with one nail painted, allow me to explain. During the month of October, men can lacquer up one nail to raise awareness and funds for The Polished Man, a charity supporting the end of violence against children. Globally, one in five kids is subjected to physical or sexual abuse before they turn 18 and The Polished Man wants to end that.
But why nail polish? "Being a Polished Man means you don’t turn your back on the vulnerable," ThePolishedMan.com explains. "You raise your voice - and nail - to say, ’Not on my watch.’ You embrace the smirks and know it doesn’t matter; there are worse things than being embarrassed by a little mani. Because nailing it isn’t about shouting the first round, or how much you lift. Nailing it is saying no to violence against children."
As you can see above, Chris, Liam, and Zac all posted painted pointers, but Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, and Tom Hiddleston have yet to show The Polished Man some love. That’s OK, guys, you still have 19 more days to support the cause, be a #PolishedMan, and #NailItToEndIt.
