It's been a good 20+ years, and I still cannot paint my toenails without also painting the toes, so I would love your best advice and tips. I promise I will return to the thread and reply about how they've gone down
Nonie R. Creme, the manicurist to the stars who paints toes for the Jimmy Choo campaigns, advocates the drunken pedicure. She says: Apply a base coat, paint nails without fretting too much about daubing the skin, add top coat and let dry overnight. Next morning, wipe Vaseline over your toes, clamber into the bath, and work around your nails with an old toothbrush. And, voila, impeccable feet.
yy, DH paints my toes occasionally too it's either he does it or I have them done with my nails - but I'd really like to be able to do them myself without looking at them and wincing. I'm sure that it's contributing to my wrinkles. I've tried to baby bud thing, but it doesn't get it all off, it leaves funny little marks that just refuse to budge iykwim. Will try the 'drunken pedicure' tonight, thanks Betty
I do a version of the drunken pedicure. Base coat, right up and over the edges, then the colour putting that too right up to the edges. Then I let it come off in water with a little bit of gentle rubbing. Best to leave it a good few hours before the water bit. Discovered it by accident
