    I finally got a pedicure with animal print

    and purple. Why don't I ever get a manicure? It comes off too quickly.

    Lately, my favorite choice

    for manicured nails is a very sheer pink with a shimmer to it.

    I feel like a real woman

    when I paint my nails. I keep my fingernails long and love painting them. I have loads of nail polish in all hues. Pedicures and manicures are my pet pastime.

    Painting my nails calm me

    and keeps me peaceful. It makes me feel good about myself when people compliment my nails.

    Today's Color

    I change colors about every 4 days. Sometimes more often if I have to see someone whom color would not go over with (i.e. my parents and extended family). Right now my color choice is Revlon Not So Blueberry. It has a nice blueberry scent. Not sure how to add pic here so I...

    Vacances are good times

    for doing the things you don't usually have time for. One of these for me is painting my nails. Yes, a little inane a subject to many but I just love having painted nails!

    I love it so much! I like to match it with my

    dress. I love French manicures as well as colours. I love painting my toenails and occasionally wear toe rings cause I find them very very sexy and feminine. I have a collection of different brands. I often find my girlfriends complimenting my nails. I think beautiful and well...

    Always Paint My Nails, Always

    Once my mom, aunt, and sister recognized my femininity, they began to actively encourage and help me with it. One thing I soon learned was the beauty of painting your nails. Because I have so long spent time both as presenting feminine and sometimes by necessity trying to get by...

    I love colorful manicures

    but my top favorite is a clean nude polish with two thick coats of topcoat. Neat, classy and they look like glass.

    Well once again today I painted my finger nails.

    It feels good, but I'm still self conscious about it all. I hope soon I won't have to feel ashamed about it. It makes me happy so I should just do it, but this world is cruel, very cruel. I also went out and bought a couple of Nivea balms that are deemed 'feminine', both pink...
