Hot pink acrylic nails

Recommended Posts

Guest Lizzie McTrucker

I really hit this one out of the ballpark!

One fateful day at an Indianapolis nail salon, there was a girl there, no older than 21 I'd say, probably more around 17-18 getting her nails done in hot pink and I could...not..stop..staring. The color was incredible, it was girly, it was fabulous! Of course at the time I was getting french manicures but I made a mental note: next time...next time! Hot pink nails for me.

So that next time came 2 weeks later and I said to the nice lady: no french manicure! I want color! I want this color! and set down the bottle of hot pink nail polish. Being the polite Asian lady she was she said "okay sit down, and stop yelling!" (sorry, ma'am). So an hour or so later I walked out of there with hot pink acrylic nails feeling girly and fabulous.

It didn't take long before the first compliment rolled in. "Omg I love your nails!" Thank you! I just had them done. "I love that color". I was beaming with pride for making a good choice.

Then a funny thing happened...maybe not all the time, but it seemed once a day or once every other day, "Omg I love the color of your nails." Thank you! "I love that nail color." Thank you! "That is the perfect shade of hot pink." I know, right, I love it!

It doesn't matter where I am either. They love it in the south, they love it in the north, they love it out west. They love it in a box, they love it with a fox, they...wait..that was Dr. Seuss. I even had the wife of a truck driver comment about my nails and that they were the first thing she noticed when I climbed out of my truck.

I knew this color was fabulous and amazing but I didn't realize just how fabulous and amazing it would turn out to be. With my medium skin tone, this color works with it just perfect and really makes it look even better. I took a chance on this color and it paid off...it really paid off.

Before I was just getting the plain ol' french manicure with white tips and I decided to switch to getting polish on them instead to add some color to my world. Now since I get so many compliments (and I love hearing compliments), I only get my nails done hot pink, so really, what's changed? lol. In fact, I bought a bottle of the polish from Sally Beauty Supply so no matter where I go, I have this fabulous shade of polish with me wherever.

This might become my "signature". :)

Hi Liz,

It's so good when it's just right! I'd love to see them!

I had that perfect nail color a while ago. Darn if I can remember which one it was?

Enjoy!

Love, Megan

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more.

      Thank you. 💛💛

      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.

      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      The right wingers will go crazy over this (I think they already have), but I think its appropriate and a nice touch.   Carolyn Marie

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn

      In an effort to make Berkeley more inclusive for its non-binary residents, the city council voted Tuesday night to make the language more gender neutral, following a city clerk review that found that the municipal code primarily contained masculine pronouns.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/07/18/berkeley-plans-remove-gendered-pronouns-its-municipal-code/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.8248f991c2e8

      So recent changes in my life have finally made me accepting to the fact that I am a woman(Stuck in a man's body). I have previously talked my self out of it in one way or another dismissing these feelings. ("I'll never pass", "I am too tall or big", etc.) I am starting to baby step my there. My weight is a stage gate to that in my mind. One problem I have dealt with my whole life is binge eating and possibly an addiction to fast food/junk food. I am 365 lbs. I can not even be hungry and feel a overwelming need to stop at a McDonald's. It's not just getting a cheeseburger either, I regularly spend 12 to 18 dollar eat it all to the point of being sick, then feel horrible about myself. I want to get down to a healthy weight, my weight and behavior is not healthy(It will probably kill me eventually). The urge is so strong, I can't fight it. I don't know what to do, has anyone else dealt with this? What can I do???   Thanks,   Dawn   The reasons I consider this a stage gate other than health reasons to transitioning is one fat blocks testosterone, I may feel differently if my hormone levels change getting healthy. Probably not since I have had these feelings since childhood but it's worth exploring before making life changing choices. Second I have heard it's hard to lose weight on HRT, so I should knock this out while it's easier. Third I am 6'4" tall, and tall clothing is hard to find as it is, big and tall makes things even harder.
