Nail Polish - What colours are your fingers and toes?

(38 Posts)

Trying to decide on nail colours. I've a stack of bottles of polish in front of me and need inspiration from S&B.

Please tell / show with pics your summer colours!

Ok so nude on my fingers and French on my toes, but I am getting to a certain age.... I am loving the ombré at the moment where you graduate the colour across the different fingers - I'm thinking of going from Nude on my thumb to pink or coral on my little fingers for a wedding later this month.

Let us know what you decide on x

I have issues...and lots of nail varnishes. I love the orangey coral colour for the summer - it's a CND Shellac colour called Desert Rose.

Fingers: Rubble
Toes: navy

Bright, unusual colours make me feel less frumpy and mumsy. So I like really bright coral (it has to be the right shade) or a beautiful blue I have from YSL. That's when I can be bothered to do it myself or feel like treating myself and getting someone else to do it!

Fingers: clear (looks more professional for work and chips don't show)
Toes: currently coral (alternatives are fuchsia/hot pink or blood red)

Toes currently mint green - I like pale colours on my toes in summer.

Fingers currently naked, but will either be a warm grey shade or bright watermelon red when I paint them tomorrow.

TSSDNCOP love navy toes too and am tempted to go with them for the 3rd summer in a row. My only issue is that the navy is so difficult to remove it stays on for the whole summergrin too lazy to take it off

Notcontent Fri 03-Jun-16 22:11:01

I like grey and navy too.

TSSDNCOP Fri 03-Jun-16 22:14:50

Ah Martin you've cracked my cunning plan grin

I'm a two week cycle Shellacer so I pick colours that will look OK with practically any outfit.

In the winter the nail bar ladies see me coming and reach for the "Taxi Cab"

Nude on both at the moment, I've been very boring recently.

I'm on the lookout for a nice blue/green colour but they all seem to be either too dark or have a pearly or glittery finish.

Orange always looks good on fingers and toes IMO.

BobbinThreadbare123 Fri 03-Jun-16 22:24:10

Navy blue toes with clear glittery fingers. I always have my nails painted but I let them breathe now and then!

JennyOnAPlate Fri 03-Jun-16 22:34:08

I have blue jamberry wraps on my fingers. A friend started flogging them and I bought some to shut her up, but they're actually really good.

My toes are nude.

CointreauVersial Fri 03-Jun-16 22:36:52

Nothing on my fingernails at the moment.

Toes were navy until yesterday, but are now coral pink.

janethegirl2 Fri 03-Jun-16 22:39:54

Not allowed nail varnish on fingers at work ( prob not allowed it on feet either) but my toe nails are very pink.

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Sat 04-Jun-16 01:13:41

Specialagentblond went for Chanel Elixir for my fingers and Wah London Check your Lipstick for my toes. The latter reminds me of Smarties so brings a smile to my face and makes me happy smile

Pictures are to show the colours and are not of my hobbit feet or fingernails [grin

Lovely! - colours to bring the sun out! I really like that pink. What do you think of the Chanel polishes? I always seem to have streaks of colour on the bath if I put them on my toes. Really annoying.

ohidoliketobe Sat 04-Jun-16 11:49:29

A real bright Barbie pink at the moment, I hate the colour and would never choose it for clothing etc, but over the years I've discovered it seems to compliment my skin tone when it gets a bit of a tan, and now I feel summery when the pink comes out. I tend to keep it on my toes all summer (I'm lazy and find one dedicated afternoon home pedicure at the start of summer means I just have to do a quick file and touch up the colour each fortnight and it lasts about 3 months...).

Will redo my finger nails this afternoon, got some new Sally Henson 5 in 1s,a lovely dark brown and a jade/ teal type of colour. Can't decide which to go for just yet.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sat 04-Jun-16 11:50:45

Mint green on both my fingers and toes.

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Sat 04-Jun-16 20:29:45

Specialagent I don't rate the Chanel polishes over other brands, although I love their colours.

In terms of staying power I was very impressed by BarryM, cheap and cheerful!

friggingnora Sat 04-Jun-16 20:53:16

That Chanel Elixir is a gorgeous colour. Anyone know of a similar shellac shade?

ChippyMinton Sat 04-Jun-16 20:58:09

Rose gold on both.
I love a coppery orange but haven't found one this year.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Sat 04-Jun-16 20:58:11

i have an amethyst purple on my fingers and just denuded my toes...they were fuchsia and horribly chipped.

I shall have a rake in the nail polish basket and paint them tomorrow. I might put a base coat on tonight.

IrisPrima Sat 04-Jun-16 21:02:22

Grey, top and bottom.

I've recently been royal blue and orange though.
