I can finally post to this topic.  After me not asking wife if I can paint my toenails for some time, she offered right before Christmas.  So far we are both enjoying.    I was thinking a light blue

I had a man with his girlfriend once ask me why I had heels on...I told him.  He then asked why I painted my toenails.  I told him "to blow your mind, is it working?"  He said "Yes."  We all laughed.

There are other similar threads. I always liked polish, for decades and decades.  In the 70' and 80's it was part of a pre-game ritual to paint my toe nails red...I led several leagues (in battin

I like to keep my toes painted also. Usually stay with purples, burgandies or metallic pinks. Even with hosiery my purple color still gives a nice look to my toes.

People DO notice - Sometimes..  The weather out here in California is getting warmer and there have been days when sandals are more appropriate (comfy) than clogs or pumps.  Since I like having my feet look nice, especially when wearing sandals, I painted my toes a light blue (For you purists, China Glaze "Secret Peri-Wink-Le) shade.  I normally paint my toes with a clear coat or some other color that is more neutral and less noticeable, this blue shade was plainly noticeable and not my usual style.  Once I had it on, I liked the look, and off I went - in sandals of course.  

Yesterday while out running errands, I had a total of three folks - all gals - not sure what that means; not only notice but compliment me on my painted toenails.  One lady said the look was "really nice, that more guys should do it," and another lady asked if by chance my granddaughters may have painted my nails, since they have done that to her husband in the past.  I told her no, the painting was my decision alone, she told me that it looked good.  The third gal simply said that she liked my pedicure.  

Three compliments in one day, now that has never happened before and I kinda liked it!!  I will probably go back to the more muted / neutral colors but for now the "secret" stays!!  ha ha

Have fun all......   sf

Oh, here's a pic for proof......

SF,

I just have to laugh when I realize I went the first 50 years without scant mention or attention to anything I wore. The last 7 years I have witnessed a number of compliments on heels I was wearing or nail polish and I see others here saying the same. The contrast is interesting and even more it is appreciated by me and I think anyone receiving such a compliment. We're all just trying to express ourselves and enjoy the journey while we can.

SF, periwinkle is one of my favorite colors, Currently my toes have an OPI Can't Find My Czechbook, but also like my ILNP periwinkle holographic. Once you get use to wearing and SHOWING color, its like you don't even think about it anymore. Hope you can get there.

I get comments all the time on my shoes, toes, and fingernails.  Below is my typical run errands look and an up-close look at my toes.

Cali,

Wasn't sure where to put this but then again you are all over this site. Now I have a medium rose color nail polish on my toes. Was looking at your gallery photos and noticed your have two of the exact same styles I have: SM Gretchen and SL98Manji. I managed to get the SLManji in cognac and black as well. That is one high and sassy heel for sure and surprisingly comfortable. I do like your style!  HappyinHeels

Hi Happy,

I have a large array of heels that I wear and also like to get all my nails colored...so I am into a lot of threads.

I had to have the SM Gretchens.  Just love the style height and chunky style. They were too tight for my toe box when I got them. So I put shoe stretches into them and slowly expanded the toe box. Only worn them once or twice to work so far. That's why I got the Freebird Canti, I can adjust the toe box (even more with my hole punch). Again another chunky retro look.

The SL98Manji I saw at my boutique, tried them on and loved the height. And surprisingly comfortable. worn them about 4-5 times to work.

I was thinking a light blue, but she insisted on red for Christmas.   Talk about go big or go home.

I had been doing mine with basic colors but last week i bought some silver glitter overlays to go over the french tips on my finger nails. I had some left over so I tried overlaying the Pacific Blue polish I had on my toes. It turned out pretty nice, kinda like a holo effect...

I love this attitude, and I’m sure it’s like having a “Your Name” tattoo on my ass.

It wins over many folk and messes with their brains. This thread is making me want to get a pedicure when lockdown eases and get gel clear coat applied. Think this will be enough for now, then go for colours when I’m ready.

This forum is amazing, thought changing!!!

@VirginHeels most people don't get gel on there toes. It's too hard to remove it.

I've done my toes 6 times myself since March 2020 but was able to get two pedicures since November. See if I can sneak one in soon.

I've been getting my toes painted for over a decade. I'm diabetic and my hand can't do many things, so foot care which includes getting a pedicure is important part on my health plan. Getting colors on my toes is just a fun added bonus. 

I wear many open toes heels, so having good looking toes is very important!  Open toe heels and disgusting looking toes is not a good look. And certainly does nothing to promote men in heels.

@Cali That is exactly what I was thinking, and as someone who now has Diabetes in my bloodline I’m going to have to take things like this seriously shortly, especially since I’ve addressed my weight issue, and will continue to do so now as a lifestyle to keep it as low as possible.

Not gonna lie, since someone else said don’t rule out any style of heel, you may just like it in the future. That said having a pair of open toe pumps or something more strappy for Summer will need my feet looking good.

Might just get a clear coat put on them, make my toes look damn good!!!

Thanks again!!!
