    :(

    So at school one of the official rules are "no coloured finger nail polish". This rule is ignored by teachers so I took it as an indication that it was unofficially discarded. However, this year, I have a teacher who's pedantic about school rules. I guess every teacher should be...

    Nail Polish Is Amazing

    I am a straight, male crossdresser and I love painting my nails. Nail polish is just amazing. It's so pretty and every time I see it, I get jealous because I can't paint mine when I want too. Girls are so lucky because they can do it without getting judged, so it's annoying for...

    To Look At

    I don't wear nail polish or any kind of coating on my nails. I don't even use files. I can't stand the rough gritty feel nail files have on my fingernails, and my nails grow fast so the extra coating or polish would grow out fast too. I love to look at the neat colors, shades...

    Polish Keeps Me Confident

    From a very young age, I always bit my nails. But when I got braces in my mid teens, I couldn't quite bite them so they began to grow. As I grew them out, in order to keep them long I would paint them to ensure I wouldn't rip or try and bite them. Now, several years since having...

    I Wish I Could Keep My Nails Short, They'd Be So Much Cuter!

    I used to bite my nails with a vengeance as a child. In sixth grade, I put a rubber band on my wrist and snapped it every time I bit. This was the only thing that broke me of the habit. That bitter paint on stuff never worked for me! It was great and I'm sure healthier that I...

    Addiction? I Think So.

    I love painting my nails. My sister and I share quite a number of nail polishes and I paint them once a week; changing my colour each week. It's so fun! One of my favourite hobbies. I'm currently wearing the classic red. I'm thinking of going for a more nude colour next time. We...

    Polish Them Please

    I love long polished nails. As I was crossdressing for years, I always wanted to leave my nails polished, they looked so pretty, I hated to take it off so no one knew. It was hard for me to do, I wanted to be so pretty and femme. One time, I forgot to remove my polish. Did I...

    I am such a nail polish junkie!

    Not just any nail polish either. OPI only! I guess that makes me a nail polish snob. Its one of the only things that makes me feel really good. Maybe Ill find more things.

    Something Interesting I Just Discovered About Glitter Polish

    Can You Say: "addict"?

    You define an "addict" as some one who is "addicted".  You define "addiction" as: The condition of being habitually or compulsively occupied with or or involved in something. I fear I'm addicted to nail polish ;)  could be worse, right?!  Right..... ;P I've...

    Ok my gf and I had a chat about me wanting to wear nail polish in public from now on. We decided that I need to be who I am. I've never done it because I've been afraid at what my family might think of me and if they would accept me. I've now taken some thought to this and...

    More Of Rant Than Praise

    So a few weeks ago I was in a waiting room, waiting for my dad after a medical test. I knew I was going to be there for awhile and my nails were bare so I brought a bottle of polish. I know it is in poor taste to groom in public and that many people can't stand the smell of...

    I Have A Enough Polish To Last Me A Few Years.

    I've always been addicted to nail polish, but it really got out of control last year. I always had what a lot of people called a lot of polish, but now I have enough to last me through a different nail polish every day for 3 years. That's a problem.
