    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...

    I'm a straight guy, and I really just want to

    start painting my nails. I've done it before when my family's gone, and have liked it, but have never let anyone see. I know I'd be judged, but as long as I had support from my friends/family/gf I could deal with judgement from strangers. I know that my dad wouldn't approve...

    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.

    I paint my nails and toenails red

    and black every now and then. It makes me feel like I'm a rock star mostly. Just to change it up from routine in any way is nice.

    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!

    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...

    I really love it, but unfortunately I'm not

    allowed to do it...At least not when I have to work, I work as a nurse, and it's forbidden, because of hygienical reasons...But I like to do it when I'm a few days off.

    I just love seeing my nails done,

    with either stripes, swirls, curves or just plain polish! The sight of it makes my day.

    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...

    Last Friday my wife and I weren't going any

    where and so I decided to paint my finger nails. I'm a CD so I do dress up and if I go out I put on the press on nails and don't paint them. I haven't painted my nails in probably over 10 years. The kids were still around and I wasn't dressing much. Anyway, I got some...

    I did for. first time 3 months ago I started

    with a nice red polish it popped with a clear coat I did well for my first time. I have built up the confidence to do a clear coat on my finger nails. Winter has allowed me to hide it so far but I hope to be able to wear it full time in the summer.

    I usually paint them black

    because I'm more comfortable with them that color and I happen to like black. Blue is my favorite, but it's a little too bold unless I'm in full drag, then it compliments me perfectly.
