    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 never have. But I am really curious to.

    I am a straight guy and I will be slapped with the stigma of homoexuality... but I dont know. I think they would look good. Should I do it?

    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...

    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 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.

    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.
