OK, I know the answer is any that I like but... I always use a deep pink.

I'm off to the south of France and Monaco for the week, having a proper pedi and want to look summery and have something different.

I'm blonde and tan a bit (although I go red if I over do it!) but have horrible toes so don't want to draw too much attention to that area grin

Thanks for any advice!

Coral looks nice on tanned feet

Yes, I like coral on others but have have never been brave enough to try it blush

I wear a lot of blue. All shades.

I came on to say coral!

I always have hot pink toenails for holiday. Or bright blue!

Have a fab time.

I have hot pink at the moment and might change it for coral before we head to the south of France in a weeks time.

I have an OPI called I eat mainly Lobster, it's bright pinky coral and looks great with a tan.

Would it look ok on a blonde (if you aren't)?

No to coral, it never seems to deliver. I have a fantastic colour for my holiday called Life's a Peach by Eve Snow, it's a sort of Creme peach, high intensity that looks wonderful with a tan, it sort of pops, I could only get it at Net A Porter, sold out everywhere else. I love it!

I'm wearing teal atm which is looking good on my slightly tanned legs.

Love coral, always works for me!

Coral or hot pink. I'm blonde with tanned feet and either of those look great on my paws.

DameXanaduBramble Sat 06-Aug-16 20:07:06

I just like a pop of colour with a tan, coral just seems to blend in with my feet - but we are all different, hey.

OneTwoOneTwoThreeFour Sat 06-Aug-16 20:14:01

Coral is a massive colour pop on me! But I am quite fair.

I love the Chiltern Park pinky red colour from M&S.
I've been happily wearing it all summer.
I love cheerful toenails they make me happy smile

Love the pedicure SOS call! grin

I've always worn bright corals, pinks and reds on my toes in summer but recently went for pale baby pink, which looks gorgeous with a tan on very well groomed toes. Bright colors are more forgiving I think but a professional pedi with pale colors can make your feet look like they belong in a magazine.

Dior Lilac is gorgeous as is Dior Sundown. A lovely red is OPI Big Apple Red.

I think it depends on the colour of your sandals/flip flops for a few years I wore a blue/turquoise very similar to this. Looked perfect with my silvery, and blue sandals. Very bright and summery too. I now have darker sandals and it doesn't look quite right so wear a dark purple instead.

TanteJeanne Sun 07-Aug-16 09:03:38

Another vote for coral.... Works with all shades of feet and colours of sandals

I wear a dark peach or a pale blue. Coral/orangey pinks are ubiquitous.... Go for something a bit different?
