I only paint them in summer. If that. I had a fungal nail infection and my friend who is a chiropodist said to avoid painting them as far as possible, take colour off asap and all the more so for dark colours.
I always have painted toe nails, on fact been with partner for 8 years and he's never seen me without my toenails. And probably only chipped a few times. That's just me though, I like them done so I feel a little girly when I'm looking rough and tomboyish, like I always do, lol.
I usually paint my toe nails in the winter but decided to give them the winter off this year. I know no-one else sees them but me but I don't paint them for other peoples benefit, I just do it because I like to.
I get really cold feet so they are covered in socks or tights except during the summer months, so I don't bother painting them unless they are on show. It can't be healthy for the nails to have nail varnish on them all the time.
Give mine a rest in winter too, but wear polish on them about April to Sept. Tend to rest fingernails in summer, just buff a bit and polish for special occasions but darks and brights through the winter.
