    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'm getting a manicure on Wednesday

    and I'm gonna get them painted black. The last time I painted them orange but I couldn't get used to that color so I had to remove it.

    I Am No Longer A Guy Who Paints His Nails

    That was all in the past and I used to forget that I had painted toe nails and get caught out. Those were the hidden years. I could not bear the pain any longer and so I came Out. Medical records have been changed so I am now a woman who paints her nails and never has any fear...

    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.

    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

    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...

    and I went for a pedicure. My wife and I got matching pink toes. Check out my pic in my albums since clicking on the "attach media" button doesn't seem to do anything here.

    For the past three years,

    I've kept my toe nails painted pretty regularly. Today I did something a bit more bold. I left one of my finger nails painted from the weekend. I left my pinky finger painted a rather bold pink color throughout my school day. I am an otherwise masculine presenting male. No...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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 Love My Nails Polished

    I just love to have my nails polished, I for the most part keep my toes polished all the time. I have such unattractive toes and that's the way to make me like my toes much more. I only have my finger nails polished when I am alone and no one is supposed to be around for a while...

    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...
