Going to a wedding tomorrow and trying to do a few things now. I don't wear it or do anything with my nails. I find it faffy and it's also not good for my lifestyle.

Anyhow, i thought i would make an effort.

I'm wearing a skirt with red patterns in it. Would it be ok or a no no to paint my nails red. I also need to do something with my toes ( apart from shave the hairs off). Can you have red toes? I always thought it looked cheap, is it ok yet?

pmsl at hairy toes FF!

I would say Red is fine as long as nails are well manicured. If not - it looks tatty/tarty IMO.

I think red toenails are lovely, if the right shade. Have you bought the nail varnish yet?

I've done them, love my hands, especially with my jewellry.

Toes are heinous, i need a hanky on my head, legs akimbo on a deckchair in blackpool dribbling a fish supper down my chin.

How do you paint a little toe nail? it's none existent.

I've never used immac, i forget it exists, must buy some.
