    It's A Little Ridiculous

    I paint my nails at least twice a week, maybe more than and have a fairly massive collection of polishes, mostly China Glaze, but with some OPI and a couple random brands thrown in. Maybe it's the Christmas season, but it seems like I'm always reaching for Ruby Pumps or Emerald...

    I Like The Way They Look

    I'm a guy and I paint my toe nails. Got my first pedi about a year ago and have gone from only clear to colors. I just think my feet look so much better with painted nails. I feel naked without color.

    Bright Colours!

    Very bright colours of course. Glittery pink, red, green, blue or purple. Sometimes I even opt for the rainbow colours, but have to miss out two colours as I only have four fingers and a thumb on each hand, which adds up to five in total. Which is two less than seven. You can...

    I Like It

    I am a  guy but love having my nails painted. I usually paint just my toes so no one notices, but would love to have my finger nails painted all the time. It is bad that men can not accept in the business world with painted nails. My favorite color of polish is a medium pink...

    Scarlet Scratches

    I take absolutely ages painting my nails usually with Coral Kiss or Siren by No7, i much prefer the red colour shades rather than the clear stuff i have wear at work as looking attractive is less important than looking professional.

    Black And Green

    I paint my nails out of a feeling of feminism. Now, I only paint my toe nails, because people tend to disapprove of guys painting their fingernails, especially black, which is my colour of choice. So, I just stay on the feet with black, which I've been doing for a few years...
