Painted toenails

I love having my toenails painted. I collect exciting new colours. I went through a stage where metallic turquoise was my favourite, and now the hottest colour is fire engine red.

It is hard to find the perfect red polish. It might look good in the bottle, but put it on and it comes out too light, or too dark, or too blue, or too orange. Cosmetics vendors tend to frown upon trying nailpolish on in the shop (especially on your toes) so I have a few bottles of sub-standard red.

I have now found the perfect red. The reddest of reds. Perfect for showing off in my strappy heels at the wedding. BUT - I am off the wedding with naked toes, because I sacrificed painting my toes in order to post today.

Wouldn't it be great if you could, like, dip your toes in a bowl of special polish sauce, and when you finished only your toenails would be nicely painted? Even though I hardly ever paint my nails (because "guy") I think that'd be pretty cool.

I'm still looking for my perfect nail color. I've done reds, nudes, sparkles, and pastels and I still haven't found anything I could lover for more than a month.

I have to get pedicures. My toenails are so tiny that every time I get them painted, I always hear, "So, this must be had to do yourself, huh?"

I agree with wordofrye, dedication!

I love my toenails painted as well. I usually go with something neutral. But since it's football season, I have every other nail painted purple and gold Geaux Tigers!

I like all the colors. Blue looks best but I also like red and pink. Black looks really good with jeans.

I love the look, the feel and the satisfaction of having my toenails nicely polished. It's hard to describe until you've experienced it, but it's just, well, cool.

And no, I'm not gay or CD, I just happen like having nice-looking toenails, that's all. And my wife is the one who got me started!
