What colour are your toenails painted?

Just about to go and have my holiday pedicure and fancy a change form my usual dark red. Spent ages looking for inspiration yesterday (how sad am I????), but nothing really grabbed me.

So today's vital question

Lilibet, mine are hot pink, cha cha cha!

expatinscotland Mon 11-Jul-05 09:49:11

They're a lovely pink!

spykid Mon 11-Jul-05 09:49:46

A lovely orangey red, lovely with a tan

Tinker Mon 11-Jul-05 09:50:33

None at the moment. Urgh, hate naked toenails. But pink is supposed to be the most flattering.

mine are a milk chocolate colour

mines dark red at mo, sometimes have bright pink too. how about a french pedicure, i think that looks lovely

lilibet Mon 11-Jul-05 09:54:34

I had a french last year and it chipped on the first day - felt a skank all fortnnight (sad) tho' no one probably noticed!

<<hijacking noises>> Ooh, lou33, is it a revlon one by any chance, called Stone Edge?? They've stopped making it and it was my fave. I'd be delighted to hear that there's an alternative though...

Mine are dark red. Usually pink though.

Will need someone else to paint them soon as the bump gets larger (although I can still see my feet at the moment )

Tinker Mon 11-Jul-05 09:59:05

Milk chocolate colour does sound nice.

Cerise pink, my favourite colour

charleepeters Mon 11-Jul-05 10:00:59

Dark wine, like Rouge Noir but a cheaper make

Emod Mon 11-Jul-05 10:10:51

OMG indeed emod!! Sisters in varnish, eh? I've been vaguely looking for an alternative to that colour for ages, but they all seem to have sparkle in, whereas that stone edge one was opaque/plain and just like milk chocolate. Mmm

Emod Mon 11-Jul-05 10:13:14

NailFinity 215 Pearl Marron to be precise

Emod Mon 11-Jul-05 10:14:26

yes! it was lovely! with no sparkles! just a lovely opaque colour!

Sisters! Have never met anyone else who wears it. I actually only ran out last year as I bought a job lot from Hammersmith Boots before I moved to Dorset 6 years ago
