Manglaze - Royal Matterimoaning

The Bird is a request by Manglaze!
I was preparing to try Royal Matterimoaning when I saw a post by Manglaze on Facebook. They wanted people to post pictures of people flipping the bird wearing Manglaze. That is when I decided that F#$k off and Dye would be the right choice. Both polishes went on easy. I did two coats, but could have gotten away with one. When I went to clean up the mani, I found I was out of 100% Acetone. I tried cleaning up with some off brand remover that wasn't 100%. I might as well have tried using water. I finally gave up. That's why it is uneven around the cuticles.

The colors are awesome. The blue has just enough shimmer to make it interesting. The pink is REALLY pink. I was a bit worried about wearing it around town. I left it on in hopes someone would ask me the name of it. Incredibly, I went to Home Depot, True Value, Sears, Safeway and not one comment at all; this really surprised me. I always figured people just don't look at feet. I'm not sure if it is my stature or people just don't care. Either way, If I can wear this combination into guy places, I feel I can wear polish anytime I want.

I am looking forward to trying other matte polishes. I feel more comfortable wearing matte polish on my nails. As you have seen from prior posts, anything goes on toes!

  4. Out of curiosity, do you think men wearing nail polish is better accepted in Hawaii than it would be in other states?

    1. I think it does vary from state to state. My sister lives in TN and it is not the most forward thinking area. I have received some odd looks but nothing overtly hostile in Hawaii. There are areas where I wouldn't choose to wear polish. However, that is true anywhere. There are rednecks everywhere. I feel comfortable most places. I just don't care what strangers think anymore. It has taken me until I was 50 to decide to not let others dictate to me what is ok. Some people may say I am having a mid life crisis. It's not a crisis, it is an epiphani!

  6. Awesome pictures. I haven't tried any ManGlaze polishes yet, but the more swatches I see, the more I'm tempted by them.
