    Always Painted

    Love painted and well manicured nails. Always wear nail polish, like bright red or pink when dressed and light pink or clear at work. Love to have my nails, fingers and toes, done at the beauty salon. I'm a man and love to dress, love my nails and makeup

    Recently I have told the people at work

    that I enjoy painting my nails (and dressing up sometimes) and showed 2 of them. They didn't mind at all - so I just let the other 2 people here know about it. I emailed the boss asking if it would be ok to "dress up" a bit now and then and he was totally fine with it...."wear...

    It started about 10 years ago

    when my ex-wife painted one of my fingers blue to see if she liked that shade. I did and finished the set later on, including my toes. Ever since, my toes are almost never bare. I stopped with my fingers for a couple of years, but started doing them again not long ago.

    I love painting my nails.

    I frequently go to work with bright red toe nails under my drab boy clothes. I've found a Revlon colour called Ethereal which I can wear on my fingers when not at work. It's almost unnoticeable but I love going out in drab knowing my fingers are painted and can be seen as such...

    Absolutely

    I absolutely love to paint my nails.  I aways keep my toes painted in pinks, purples, or reds!  I love the feeling of being feminine and I am on that quest in my life right now.  Once I finally come out to the world my fingernails will always be painted as well.  I cannot...

    I've been wearing nail polish on

    and off for many years now (not around people i know though) and its been a very long time since anyone has made a comment or anything short of a subtle double-take. While its great on one hand... I feel like I need practice talking about it if I'm ever going to be able to show...

    I started painting my wife's nails,

    felt all girlie setting on floor doing her toes and told her so. She suggested my girlie feelings should stick around and then instructed me to do my own toe nails. Several weeks and some sandal time outside with no harsh comments, I got up the nerve to do my fingers one...

    It has been a part of my beauty routine for  years.  I go every other week to have a fill and polish done on my acrylic nails.  I would like to keep them longer but that interferes with the typing I have to do all day. During the spring months, when I pretty much stay in...

    I am a sissy and I just love nail polish.

    My toenails are always painted either pink or red. For my fingers I use one coat of very light pink nail polish. It looks great and no one ever notices at work except some of the girls who know about it. Wearing nail polish for me is a great way to feminize myself during work...

    Yesterday morning I got home from work,

    I just let a female friend paint mine one day.

    Now I do it whenever I'm bored and want to fill up a spare 10 minutes. I'm a basic black kinda guy, and boy does it get me some looks. Oh well, it's all good fun.

    For the past three years,

    My hands are on the small side

    so they don't look like MAN HANDS but they aren't feminine looking either. Now and then I will let the nails on my left hand grow long and then paint my nails just on that hand. I then go to work and places as normal, but hide my hand so no one sees. (hoodies are great for that...

    She Picked It Out

    Today my gf came back from CVS with a present for me. A bottle of nail polish by Sally Hansen called Fuisha Power. She told me to remove the red polish from my toes and put this color on. After the second dried she examined them and told me to put one more coat on because it was...

    At the age of four I was sitting next to my mum when she was painting her nails. It was a pink nail polish she was using. I said I want to paint her nails. She said I'm not experienced in this and she needs perfect nails. I looked a little bit sad. Then she said I could do my...

    I Paint My Nails

    I love painting my nails. Pink is my favorite color. It goes good with my pink panties and my pink dresses. I didn't start painting my nails until late in life. Now, I do it almost every day. I think the desire to do this stems from when I was a boy about 12 or so and I had a...

    Straight Guy Painted Toes That’s me!

    I just love to have my toes painted. There is just something about going to a salon, sitting in the “spa chair” & getting a pedicure that is so enjoyable. Maybe it’s the “pampering”, the fine detail that the tech has when filing & cleaning up the cuticles. Oh & the...

    Here is what I usually do with my nails,

    darks for my toes and lighter colors for my fingers. It'll be a sad day when I land a desk job and have to keep my fingers clear.
