I want to have pretty toes for wedding in a few weeks. I will be wearing mud peep hole stilettos and was going to have my usual dark plum on hands and feet. Now the weather is picking up (long may it continue) I am thinking of having gel treatment with permanent French which a friend has had done and lasted 6weeeks!
Anyone tried it? Fancy a change and think its more summery than dark colour

That should be nude not MUD lol!

Stick with the dark plum. I always think French manicure looks a bit cheap. Or maybe a bright red, with a more orangey/coral tinge?

Is it your wedding btw?

French manicure is particularly yuck on toes. Beautician in my salon says anything other than polish is a waste of money on toes as the polish on its own lasts ages anyway.

My Wedding??!! I wish....
Thanks peeps for advice. I think I agree with the comment about looking cheap particularly if its just painted on.
Now that it's getting towards bare legs and open shoe weather I want to have nice toes!

I like bright colours on toes! If you have a pedicure there will be gazillions of colours to choose from! What about a lighter brighter version of your usual polish? And then wear your usual on fingers.
