Saudi boys are painting their nails – and showing off their hairy legs in photographs drawing laughs across the Arab world. It is all part of a hashtag on Twitter, which translates to Take a Picture of Yourself Like a Girl Does .
The boys are poking fun at girls sharing their pictures on social media – of the shoes they wear, nail polish they apply, the coffee they sip and gifts they exchange with each other.
This picture of a man, showing off his red painted nails, while sipping coffee, has made the rounds:

The pedicured nails caused a stir. Ahmed wonders:
#صور_كنك_بنت  I won't even ask why so many guys have access to manicures.

And Aseel voices her objection:
Seriously? Guys applying nail polish on their nails just to make fun of girls !! ما عاد بيها رجوله يا جماعه #صور_كنك_بنت
