I want to get a manicure and pedicure - what colour nails should I go for? The same colour for both seems a bit ott. Was thinking red toe nails, but then what about fingers? Could just have clear but then does it seem ridiculous to get them done instead of doing it myself? would a sort of nude be okay?
Anything else is just a variation with a comedy name so manufacturers can flog a fractionally different shade to people who go "baaaa!! must have this colour because themanufacturerisgivingitoutfreetobeautyeds it's this season's must have".
Pick a colour you like, that goes with your clothes and with enough base & top coat so it doesn't fall off within 2 days.
If you want any other pieces of ordinary common sense, which may on the face of it seem alarmingly controversial, then don't hesitate to ask me.
It depends what your nails are like. The manicurist will be able to advise you. If you have enough length you could go for a french manicure on your fingers - this is popular in salons because it's very difficult to do on yourself.
