Now before you start judging, I'll give you the background on this escapade.

I lost my mom this past February to a terminal illness that we knew about for three years. The last mothers day i had with her, before she passed away I took her in for a mani pedi as part of her gift. When it was her turn to get up in the pedicure chair thing, as I was picking her up out of her wheelchair, she looks at me and says "I don't want to be up there alone" she was very self conscious of about people staring because of what the Parkinson's / Lou Gerhigs was doing to her motor control. So I said I'd get up there and get one with her. Then I made the joke of "what color should I get them?" she started laughing and said purple... So I told the lady to paint them purple even let me mom pick the shade of the polish.

My mom laughed for over 45 minutes straight. Laughed till she cried. You have to picture me, broad shouldered, heavily tattooed biker or Asian gang banger looking dude... Getting his toenails painted bright royal purple. Everyone in the spa was staring at us and my mom was soo happy.

Not a thing in this world could ever have made me ashamed of rocking those purple toenails under my work boots for a month. If I could have her back, I would get my toenails done every year for mothers day. Just to see her laugh like that again.
















And it made my feet look pretty LOL
Touching story, you rock Ronin!

You also happen to be the only person so far to present a valid reason IMO. But, to each his own.

My wife loves to give me manicures and she even likes to paint my toe nails (work won't allow me to have painted fingernails otherwise I'd have her paint them too). I've got a pretty sweet purple on right now.

The best part is women LOVE my painted toe nails. I get hit on so much by women and its a great ice breaker. I was painting my toe nails/finger nails at the age of 13 and never stopped until jobs told me I couldn't (Still painted the toe nails). My wife thought it was awesome when she meet me and we first started dating that she could paint my nails. Hell I own more nail polish than she does now after the 12 years we've been together.

In my world, a real man doesn't care what others think of him. You should see some of the ridiculous shit I go through for my wife to make her smile.

I voted I don't care. But... I get in-grown toe nails, and pedicures are WAY cheaper than visits to the podiatrist, sooooo.... :O

In other words, you need attention? That's what, that says to me. Why would you care if other women hit on you, if your happily married?.

I've had one a few years back because I had a terrible ingrown toenail and mon said her lady could fix it. And damn sure enough she fixed it. And honestly my feet felt fantastic. I'd do it again.

He has his reasons...it doesn't have to do with him being hit on.

And to add to the discussion, I voted the never really thought about it.....never would get one
