Nail Polish for Men

If you are a man and you wear nail polish, you are either a goth kid, a rock star or a drag queen.  However, the time has come when all men, no matter what their profession can start wearing nail polish.

A friend of mine on Twitter has been tweeting a link for this new nail polish for men called Alphanail.  It’s a play on words, you know like Alpha Male but nail since it’s nail polish for men.

I think this is kinda cool because I have wanted to wear nail polish for years.  In fact, it was just 2 or 3 days ago when I was talking to someone about how unfair it is that women get all the cool accessories like all the make-up and nail polish and purses etc.  Why is it that men can’t get all of those things?

I looked at the prices for the nail polish for men and well, I don’t know what nail polish for women cost but these are $10 each.  If you buy 3 you get 2 things of nail polish remover called clean slate included for $29.95  and free shipping for orders over $30.  I guess that’s not a bad price.

They have matte and metallics.  I personally wouldn’t like matte too much, I think I would prefer the shiny metallics but I might change my mind if I saw how the matte looked, then again who knows for sure.  But I do like the names of the matte colors like “Burnin’ Rubber”, “Smoke”, “Concrete”, “Cocaine” and “Benjamins”.  Ok um… cocaine?  LOL that one is too hilarious.  “Hey what color is that nail polish” “Oh it’s called cocaine” LOL.  Too funny.

Then the metallics colors are cool too.  They have “Celtic silver”, “Midnight”, “Deep Ocean”, “Gasoline” and “Pirate Gold”.  I like that.  Gasoline.  And what’s even more ironic is that 1 tube of it costs more than 1 gallon of actual gasoline.

You have to see it in action though, they have a video on how to apply the nail polish and here it is:

I like that it’s a pen with bristles unlike the typical nail polish that women wear.  You click it to make the nail polish come out then start putting it on.

Anyway, I probably won’t be buying this because it’s a bit on the expensive side for me and I’d probably never wear it but if you have the money and the guts I say go for it.

Twitter Is So Junior High

When I was a teenager in Junior high school I was targeted by the bullies for a daily beat down. I don’t know what made me the target, I didn’t act effeminate but I was accused of being gay and beat up for it. These kids who beat me up didn’t even know me. They never met me, they never talked to me, they didn’t know one thing about me yet they beat me up for being gay.

Keep in mind I was in the closet and had a girlfriend as my cover (who I met years later in a gay bar, turns out she was a big lesbian using me as much as I used her).

I was threatened every single day that I would get beat up after school so every day I ran home from school. We were only 2 blocks from the school anyway so I didn’t run very far but that is the reason my calves are so big to this day.

One day I was walking to gym class and I was running a bit late, there weren’t any people behind me, I was at the tail end of the crowd going to the gym. This kid came out of nowhere, ran up to me, kicked me as hard as he could in the nuts then ran away. I didn’t know who he was and I never saw him again. There I lay on the ground in the most pain I had ever been in my entire life. I was in so much pain I couldn’t see, I couldn’t yell, I couldn’t think. I lay there on my side on the concrete with my hands on my crotch. Nobody there to help me, no witness.

Someone found me and took me to the nurses office and for some f’d up reason I got detention.

Ok, I had to tell you that so I can tell you this. Yesterday, someone I follow on Twitter tweeted this:

“If you want someone to unfollow this Saturday, @markdavidson is a good candidate. Can’t believe someone can deal with him #unfollowsaturday”

Well, without knowing who the guy is, I retweeted that. Now, don’t you think that what I did was exactly what those kids in junior high school did to me? I don’t know Mark Davidson yet I ran up to him and kicked him in the nuts without so much as a hello, nice to meet you. I never read any of his tweets, I never read his blog, I just rt’d that without even thinking.

I sent him a @ mention last night after he retweeted my retweet telling him I was sorry. I woke up this morning and looked at my tweets and remembered that he told me to read his microblog for a few days and I’ll understand why this person tweeted that in the first place. Well, it’s not necessary for me to do that. I had no right getting in the middle.

So I guess this is my public apology to him. Here I am on my quest for equality and here I am the hypocrite and for that I apologize.  This is certainly a lesson for me that I will never forget.
