Black nail polish, has been predominantly used in the goth culture, it was mainly a goth thing and also used by some rock and rollers "kiss", nowadays this trend is changing and just about everyone is using black nail polish so its no longer just a goth thing, it has become a trend. Black nail polish accentuates skin colour and makes you stand out, it can also be quite empowering, and give one a don't mess with them look!
I bought some black nail polish yesterday, it looks great against my skin tone.

black nail polish is symbolic in the goth culture and is to create an impression, but modernly it has become more of a trend and no longer only symbolizes gothic or emo culture. Black nail polish is not neccasarily bad or stupid.

Black is the only nail polish color that both genders like to wear.

Girls wear black nail polish because it's such a bold and incredibly sexy color. Guys (cis) wear it mostly as a fashion trend statement (e.g. social media fad) or to symbolize that they are affiliated with a certain cultural movement (e.g. goth, emo). Only some guys wear it without any externally-motivated reasons.

There is also a noticeable difference in HOW each gender wears it. Guys (cis) often do it hastily. They have no intention to fill the polish in completely, and prefer it chipped. Most would opt for matte black. This is likely to distance themselves from actually partaking in a feminine hobby, or to follow the trend. Thus for guys, it is only a means to an end. When girls wear it though, it will look unironically gorgeous and catches people's eyes. Most will get it done professionally, or do it themselves with unprecedented perfection. Girls will take the extra mile to use a base coat, and put a top coat over the black polish to make it nice and glossy. Girls also like their nails long and shaped. They'd look—as you'd expect—feminine.

Guys rocking black nails isn't anything new or remarkable, but it would take some real balls (i.e. devotion) to paint them in a sincere impeccable fashion as a girl would.
Me: Guess what?? I just bought some black nail polish
Emily: LOL, are you going to become an eboy or what?

What eboys typically like to wear to complete the whole eboy look.
Jamie completed his eboy outfit by applying a layer of black nail polish on his fingernails. Even though it was neatly done, he scraped some of the polish off to get that chipped look.
