I usually have bright pink, bright red or very dark red on my holiday toes. I've just started packing and so far clothes and swimsuits are mostly navy, with blush pink, pale blue, grey, white and denim (off black or very washed out) and a few brighter things. I have silver salt water sandals and a pair of coral sandals and pale pink converse plus some very comfy but

Pedicure at the weekend is booked. Yay pampering!

We're going to Mallorca, I'm lightly tanned and blonde, I'm really going back towards dark red but maybe something different would be nice. Any suggestions?

Nude?

I don't know, I went for a coral pinky orange for my holiday this year and I regretted it. I missed my usual dark red stuck in my ways much
Red would go nicely with all the swimsuits you described.

Yes I had wondered about nude but I wonder if I'm too pale to carry it off. Hmm maybe dark red is safe and known and not too try hard....

Or maybe a coral peachy type colour. Darker than nude and complimentary but not matchy matchy with the sandals.

I generally do gold for holiday. looks nice with a tan.

I had this copper colour for my holiday and loved it every time I caught a glimpse

That's lovely ruby.

I find if I don't go dark, my toes don't look right to me. I've gone for Shellac Oxblood on toes and Winter Glow (pale opaque creamy pink) on fingers.

I'm going for a bright pinky red with a hint of coral in it. Revlon pocket aces as someone recommended on here. It's a proper holiday colour. It didn't last on my fingers but it's done nearly a week on my toes already and no sign of wear.

On my fingernails I am having a nude/pink and i might put a bit of sparkle on it for a change.

Baby blue

Navy blue? Will go with everything you have mentioned - esp since red might clash with coral.
