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:
