    I'd like to hear what people think of my toenails just now (image is attached). I got ideas from 8 different people and did all the nails different except the really little ones

    Should I do my hands like this?

    I always notice if people's nails are painted. I also hate to see unpainted toe nails, even if I'm just barefoot in the house, I always paint my toe nails.

    I love an array of colours; I went through a period of always wearing reds and pinks, but depending on my outfit I wear dark/reds and sometimes blacks. Grey sounds really nice for nail varnish actually, may have to invest in some

    Not sure if guys notice though. The only time my boyfriend ever really comments is if I'm wearing dark... "look at you, with your goth nails" or he's started to notice if they're a different colour or I've recently re-applied.

    He also notices when I try to paint my nails drunk and drop a bottle on the floor. He also notices when my gay best friend tries to paint his toe nails mortal drunk and gets it on his bed sheets. But that's it really

    It's a no no on guys for me. I'm picky about male hands anyway; long nails are horrible.

    It can look good dependent on colour and how well the nails are painted.

    NO!! Really? She looks so different from the last time I saw her! Then again, she probably only had dyed her hair...and was standing.

    I think coral toenails look gorgeous with sandals - fingernails I don't usually bother with, I just buff them to make them shiny

    Yeah her hair seems much brighter and more orange now, suits her though I reckon

    I think it looks cheap and a bit chavy especially on the toe nails.
    wow i don't agree. I would never get my feet out without painted toenails. I always wear it on my toes, not as much on my fingers because it chips too easily and grows out fast but I occasionaly do.

    I can't stand to have unpainted toenails. I like a french manicure on my fingernails, just makes them look tidier and neater.

    i really love nail polish, but as long as it's neat, tidy, not chipped etc. good quality basecoats (nailtek) and topcoats (seche vite) can make even the crappest nail polish look a bit better. as it draws attention to the hands though, it's nice to have your hands looked after too. the amount of times i've noticed someones nail polish, then saw overgrown cuticles, dry hands etc. i always have painted finger and toenails.

    please don't!!:eek:
    If you're under the age of 14, thats fine on your hands, but i just dont like that style on anyone older.

    Fingernails need to be:
    Short
    Square
    Filed neatly
    Buffed-if you're going without polish
    if they're gonna be painted, I'd stick to these colours:
    black
    chocolate
    silvery-blue
    pastel pink
    dark blue
    neutral brown/pink

    Your advice is really good, but rather optimistic, I fear :o: Am I allowed anything sparkly, and can I draw a monkey on one fingernail, since it's been requested by one of my friends? :o:

    pictures on fingernails is fine - if you're a child...

    i distinctly remember being a 14 year scene-kid and painting spiderman's face on one of my thumbnails *shudder* it was actually pretty good :p: but that's not the point...
