    I love nail polish. I have my toes colored most

    of the time when I can hide it (I'm still afraid of friends seeing). I Like to get clear gel polish on my fingernails. I wish it was more acceptable for men to have their nails done. I would love to get acrylics and all but I'm too scared. I am a strait, work in construction...

    Girlfriend Paints Toes

    I love it when my gf paints my toe nails. She use to have her own nail salon so she does an excellent job. She paints them bright shiny red when I'm going to wear sheer black pantyhose or thigh highs and a deep burgandy when I wear suntan or beige ones. She also gives me...

    Acrylic Nails At A Nail Salon

    Went to a nail salon to ask to have acrylic finger nails applied. The nail technicians were Asian women possibly Hmong as there is a large Hmong sector here. Walked in to the shop and  spoke to the manager and I asked if they could apply acrylic nails on my finger nails. She...

    My toes are always polished, color depends on my mood. I always wanted to have them polished, so I asked my wife to polish them for me a couple of years ago and have been hooked ever since. Now we get pedicures together, but she polishes them. I think it's great, she likes to...

    Okay, I'm a dude. A gay dude.

    And I do hair. Haha. But I'm so masculine acting that people can't even tell I'm gay. Not purposely... That's just me. However... I really wanna start painting my nails because I love the way it looks on me. I'm scared shitless of what people will say about me, what they'll...

    I am a 24 year old man.

    I am in collage, but it is close, so I live in an apartment. I always love my toe nails and finger nails to be polished, but I can't always polish fingers, in fear of getting laughed at. Anyway, one day I went out in public with open toed flip-flops (Men's) with polished toes...

    I get a pedicure monthly,

    with the same lady who does my waxing. As a joke I had my nails painted a bright blue one time but the responses were positive so I keep it up now. Being winter no-one sees them, but come sandal season again they surely will. Right now a pale pink, done yesterday. All that and I...

    During a recent trip to Vegas,

    I got a mani pedi. Color for my toes but nothing exciting and I tried clear shellac on my fingernails. I love how smooth and glossy it makes my nails. It's supposed to last 3 weeks but we will see.

    Yes I love to wear nail polish.

    I'm a straight man and I've been painting them for over a decade now. I was hooked from the first time I put that first color coat on my toes. As the years have past I have become more than comfortable with showing them publicly. I live in a very small community now and at first...

    I go for a Mani/Peti every three weeks. I used to get a French manicure on my toe nails and just the base color on my finger nails. I have had to go into the hospital several times in the last year and when the nurses see my feet, they always bring me a pair of pink hospital...

    Where Does A Guy Go?

    I know there are lots of places a guy van go to get a "man's pedicure" But colour? How do I find a place that caters to going that extra step for men? I would like to find a place that does it often enough so if I go in and ask there won't be gasps and giggles.

    I Just Love It

    Maybe it's because it's not a thing men do much - but then my wife says she can't be bothered most of the time to do hers. I feel more feminine with pretty hands. So I try to look after my nails: they are a bit long for a man, and they are shaped. My toenails are painted almost...
