    I'm a Nail Polish Addict

    I feel naked without nail polish.  And I go for the daring colors too: hot pink, banana yellow and today, its Sephora by OPI's "Queen of Everything" which is a metallic, aluminum foil type of color.   Its an obsession.

    One of my favorite things to do is paint my

    nails white and then go over it with glitter so it really stands out (with a base and top coat). In a pinch this works, but I'd like to get a little bit more creative eventually.

    My Fingernails!

    My bestfriend won't ask me how I'm doing, she'll look at my fingernails. If they are manicured she knows I'm having a good week. If they are bitten and not polished, she'll ask me what's wrong. There is definitely some truth to that because when I'm feeling good, I'll pay the...

    I love wearing nail polish and also painting my toe nails.  That is when I am in a good mood and want to feel good about myself.  I guess I just stopped wearing it though because there are a lot of jobs out there where you can't have it on.  I worked for Subway and...

    Why Do You Wear Polish On Your Toes??

    My husband wanted to know why I wear nail polish on my toe nails.  I replied that it makes me feel feminine.  I also love the manicured look of my feet, especially if I am wearing sandals. What about you??

    I wear all types of nails polishes

    but I can't stand the ones with heart shapes inside them. If you know what I'm talking about. It looks glittish but it's not it's glitter inside but with shapes. I don't like that because it doesn't apply on your nail. I just prefer regular nail colors plain and simple with...

    I Always Have

    As I've mentioned in other stories, I've been dressing and going out since my teens. When younger I would sometimes dress at home but I never had time to put on nail polish. On my very first time out, though, at 17 I had gotten dressed and made up in my car, and I'd even pierced...

    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 wait...

    Intracate Designs

    I always polish my nails in really complicated designs, I think I'm addicted to nail polish. Right now I have neon colors and silver in a cross-over french, with rhinestone flowers. I can literally spend my whole Saturday doing my nails.

    I wear nail polish on my toes

    because it protects my toenails from the harsh environment inside my steel-toe work boots - I think EVERY MAN who wears steel-toe boots frequently, SHOULD PAINT HIS TOES! When I started, polish also hid the "fugly yellow" until it could grow out and be cut off. And, the colors...
