SWATCHES!!!!!

Hello!  Man it's been a long week, but a good one.  My twitter follower count has passed 100 followers!  My blog page views has passed 450.  I have met so many WONDERFUL women that have been nothing but nice to me on twitter.  If you aren't on twitter you are missing out for sure.

Check out my blogroll ---->

These ladies are awesome!

I made a trip to Ulta this week and came home with 4 new polishes.


Dark Blue - Ulta Professional Joined at the Hippo
Red - Revlon Red
Shimmery Black - China Gaze Stone Cold
Light Blue - Sinful Colors Why Not from Walgreens

I was a little afraid to go into Ulta at first.  I really dont know why.  The ladies that work there are all so nice and helpful.  Answered my questions and didn't seem to skip a beat.  I will be shopping there again fo sho!  Someone on Twitter said it is like heaven with $$$$ everywhere and they are right.  I wanted to spend my whole paycheck on polish!

I can't wear nail polish at work, because " Men aren't supposed to wear or like nail polish, it's for girls" I can't explain how much this comment pisses me off!  So I have to have naked nails during the week.

I went Thursday to get a Spa Pedi, everyone needs to be pampered every now and then.  I love how relaxing a pedicure is.  It made my week!  I had the nail tech paint my toes with the Revlon Red.

I have always like red nail polish on a woman because it made their feet and hands look sexy! Well it made my manly, ugly feet look better as well.  ( sorry to those of you that dont like feet)


I really dig Revlon.  I know its a well know brand thats why I picked it up.


(yeah I have ugly feet)


I really think it makes my ugly feet nicer.  What do you think?

Now, for my mani.  I decided to wear the Ulta Professional Joined at the Hippo.  This polish is a super dark blue.  (my favorite polish color right now).  It's a nice creme polish, and really draws attention to your hands.  It is pretty thick but I am wearing 2 coats and a topcoat as well, I don't know the name of the topcoat.  I definitely recommend picking it up if you like blue polishes.  Now to the pics!





I hope to start posting swatches more often.

I really would like to hear from you.  Please hit me up on twitter @polishmemanly

Lastly, I have to say thank you to those wonderful women I was talking about earlier.  All of the supportive comments and helpful advice really means a lot to me!  You all have made my year!  I can't explain the gratitude I have for all of you.

Guys if you are still hesitant to paint your nails, take my advice.  DO IT!  There is nothing to be afraid of and the ladies dig nail polish.  It makes you have something in common with them.  You can still be manly and paint your nails.  I am.

  7. You know what's funny? I just painted my nails a nice navy blue (Sation Rock a Guy Blue) and I was like hmmm mr manly polish (that's your name in my head I guess) should do his nails blue! Cuz I agree with lovenailpolish up there... its a sexy shade on men or women. I am absolutely NOT a foot lover, but yours aren't like extra disgusting or anything. I think the polish helps. Haha. Also- your nails are REALLY nice man nails!! I actually don't think I'd go "whoa.. that's a dude" if I'd just seen your nails on like Beautylish or something. Lookin good! Don't let your lady dick boss discourage you.

    1. Dark blues are striking. Thank you, I know feet ooog most people out, but I really think the nail polish makes them look much less ugly.

      I want my nails to look nice. I chewed them so long and now that Ive let them grow some I think they look good, but I would rather keep them polished at all times.

  8. I just found a link to your blog and love it! I am finding that I am in a growing group of guy nail polish bloggers. I also love dark blues. However, I also love to wear holo polishes on my nails.

    1. Thanks for reading. I am so glad I'm not the only guy that digs nail polish. I'm a noob, but this is the best time I've had my whole life. I got my first Holos and will be posting swatches soon.

  9. Oh, I love Ulta. And Sephora! Heaven on earth. Actually any makeup dept anywhere is heaven on earth for me. Revlon makes great polish. In my experience, it lasts longer than some of the higher priced brands.
