What colour toenails with this holiday capsule wardrobe?

Everything is black, white or taupe except one item which is lime green.

I pair of sandals white (flat, everyday), one pair taupe (medium heeled, dressy). Other shoes don't reveal any toes.

Am about 50, but not afraid of colour and fun.

So: taupe toes, lime green toes or a different colour (what?)

Coral or bright pink great with a tan too

Coral is quite a good idea, because I've got some in that Sally Hansen two-stage one, which seems to last longer on me than most.

I don't tan very much, but I think I once read in a Carol Spenser style advice book that coral is one of the few colours that suits all colourings.


I've read that too, but some corals definitely don't suit me, I need very soft pinky ones not bright orange. It goes so well with lime green.

Lime green might look like a fungus.

I'm wearing Essie Meet Me at Sunset and love it.

I's a bright coral.

Really bright orange. I had one that was shot through with gold. A colour like that in clothing would make me look dead, but on my toenails it was like little goldfish. Made me happy.

Orange or bright coral

BarryM Satsuma is amazing

peachy coral if you're warm toned and dove grey if you're cool.

Barry M Satsuma is gorgeous, but it's one of the ones that really didn't suit me, to the extent that I took it off again almost before it had dried, it made my feet look like slabs of dead flesh.

The best I've found is Rimmel Instyle Coral. Envious of those of you that can wear the bright orange tones.

Much as I like coral, it's a very popular pedicure colour and locally it's had a bit of overkill. i'd get some mavala mini nail polish colours 1 red, navy and a lighter colour and take with me because when I use my fav sun cream (piz buin)it can lift the nail polish or maybe it's just me. That's even when Had a beautician visit before hols.

I don't think we can advise from your description tbh. It depends on your colouring, and your style, at least as much as the colours of your clothes.

Having said that, I like the idea of a bright orange.
