My 4th, of July nails

Attempt at watermelon nails
Hello everyone. I haven't been posting as much lately. Life has been crazy. The last couple of weeks have been great polish weeks. I now wear whatever polish or nail art that strikes my fancy. It is a combination of widening my polish horizons and realizing nothing bad has happened by wearing polish and nail art openly. I have a number of cashiers and coworkers that always look to see what I am wearing. A nurse today said "that is a really pretty color", referring to the CG Strap on Your Moon Boots with the stripe of Layla Ultraviolet. The length of my nails I am wearing currently are a little shorter than I had been wearing. The slightly shorter length has resulted in zero nail accidents. I am going to try the longer length again when I am done pouring the cement for my patio. They deliver a truck load of crushed stone on Monday, so long nails are out of the question for a bit. I also received my welding mask from Amazon. I have always wanted to learn to weld. I have some welding that needs to be done and I don't want to pay someone to do it.

I have had terrible luck with stamping lately. I think it is because I have been practicing free hand nail art more lately. I need to shake the rust off. I really like stamping and want to get in stamping shape before Halloween!

  2. I love that you've embraced your creative nail side! Your 4th of July nails rocked! I prefer the shorter length on you but I think it's because I like it best when you wear darker colors and I always think darker colors look best on short nails lol. Glad you are having so much fun just being you!

  3. I love the 4th of July design you did. That is cute. The pedi is nice too. That color seems to look good on everyone's toes. I even have on a shade very similar. I painted flowers in white and added some silver swirls but yeah, I like the dark pink and white combo. If you are going to paint you may as well add a design it's so much more fun and a good creative outlet that way too! I think I am going to try to do a watermelon mani too that is perfect for summer! I love themed nails.

    1. Polish is an excellent creative outlet. I am exploring my creative side. My dad was an artist. My oldest sister is an artist too. Until polish, I had always rejected art for more stereotypical guy interests.

    1. Thanks! The shorter length is how they are most of the time. I sometimes go longer for nail art, but shorter is better for real life.

  5. Being a guy myself that wears nail polish I find your designs to be very beautiful. I'm known on my YouTube Channel for my naturally long nails that I usually keep painted with Sally Hansen Nail Polishes. I find your designs to not only be very beautiful but inspirational!

  8. Hey, what kind of custom nails do you use, where did you get them (in sizes for a guy's fingers) and how do you attach them? I've used some acrylics I bought online attached with gel-type adhesive stickers,but they don't stay on very well. If I'm going out I have to carry extra stickers and a pair of tweezers in my pocket so I can fix them during the evening.

    I'm also a dude who loves to paint my nails. But I find it damages and flakes the natural nail pretty badly, so they have to stay short: custom false nails would be great for nights out when I want them to be a bit longer.

  9. They are from customnailsolutions.com They send you a kit to take impressions of your natural nails. They make the custom ones from your impressions so they fit perfect. They are glued on with nail glue. I soak them off in acetone and can reuse them forever. I have had them 8 months and still love them.
