    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 just recently got into taking nail art more

    seriously and have even created my own Instagram account for it, but I would love to get to know other people with the same passion as I 😊

    Painting my nails calm me

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

    When I have time, I love to sit down

    and paint my nail with really cool designs. These are just fake nail that I painted and placed on top of my real nails so I could take a picture . πŸ˜πŸ˜„

    Only When I Feel Down...

    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 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...

    It's something about the process from picking

    the color to pairing the last clear coat that makes it so therapeutic

    I'm definitely way obsessed with painting my

    nails. They can just never be perfect enough. I like adding little details to them all the time and I think its a good way for me to just kinda show who I am, in a way o.o

    Over the years I have been getting better at

    not biting or picking my nails, and so I've started a new habit as a way to help that, I've been trying to let them get a little long.
