Do you paint your fingernails and toenails the same colour?

Quite a girly topic, but the guys can respond based on what your female relatives / friends do. Do you like to paint your fingernails and toenails the same colour? Or do you usually apply similar colours but always different? Why do you choose what you do? Do you use OPI polish? If so, what are your favourite colours, and why? One of my favourites is It's Sheer Luck, a light pearly pink because it is subtle and goes well with most outfits. Another favourite is a dark deep red called "Oh to be 25 again" because it looks sophisticated - the downside is that it's more obvious when it wears off.

Yes, they are usually in the same color, because I like the fact that they match. I usually go for muted, neutral pinks, or bright fashion colors, such as mint green at the moment, but most of the time I stay with the classics!

no i didnt, i use dark colors on my toenails and light colors on my fingernails. i dont want to use dark color on my fingernails coz its very destructive or easy to notice. besides i can easily see if my fingernails are dirty if i use light color.

Yes I do because I don't want it to not match. It's the way I like to do it because I used to this, but now I don't even though my sister does because she likes to not match and she likes to be very colorful. I want to look clean you know like it looks nice because both are the same color it looks more classy. I guess I got it from my mom because she also likes her fingernails and toenails to match,to be the same color. Still I guess it's okay if one is pink and the other black, but I would never put two colors that don't go well together.

Well yes most of the time, and the only time i put a different color is if i put a colorless nail polish. I usually put a bolder color on my toenails and just the colorless on my fingernails.

I don't paint my fingernails at all, just my toenails. I usually go with black or purple, something dark.

yes i do. i think it coordinates with each other when you paint your fingernails and you toenails in the same color. it is even more stunning to try and have on the same color shoes and outfit as your fingernails and toenails. maybe it is because i love to compliment my colors. i also love to wear things that are harmonious to each other.

hello squaretile, well i don't usually color my fingernails coz it will just be a waste for me to do so since my hands are always busy doing all the household chores, from cooking , to laundry, to ironing & everything... i just color them on occasions. with my toenails, i usually color them almost every other week...hehe but if i don't have time to go to the manicurist/pedicurist i just do it myself & don't color them. just keep them clean & its fine. sometimes i do match their color but it just happen rarely coz i am not really that comfortable having colors on my fingernails... i like black (well not exactly black but appears to be black) hehe & with red or brown shades... i am not really familiar with the colors coz i just pick it whenever the manicurist ask me which one i like to use...hehe

Me, i always put colorless or natural shade in my fingernails & in my teonails i'l just put colorless also & sometimes put white shades in the tip, so it could always match whatever outfit i'l wear.

Its very rare that I paint my toe nails because they are hardly ever on show. When I do wear shoes that show off my toes on a night out I have tights on so you cant really see my toes but when I do I do have them the same colour. It is normally a colour which goes with or matches whatever I am wearing. Ive got some OPI nail polish that I got free in a magazine but I have not used them yet.

i'm a girl but i guess i'll reply based on what my female relatives/friends do. i can't remember the last time i painted my fingernails. i think the fingers on both hands is enough for the number of times i've painted my fingernails in my entire life. as for toenails, they've never been anyway near nail polish. people who like to wear peep-toes or sandals usually paint the finger/toe nails the same colour. i've got stewardess friends who are required by their job to do that too.

Most of my frenz tend to have the same color on the fingersnails and toenails.. hehe ^_^ It's much more convenient to be doing same colors for them, rather than trying to have different sets.. haha =D Because nail colors needs time to dry, and if one is not careful, the other color might stain on the fingernail or vice versa, making their efforts gone to waste.. hehe ^_^ I myself, have tried white before, and i do really like it.. haha =D But as it wears off, it's like have paint being scrapped off from my nails instead.. lol =D

Hi Squaretile, I always choose skin tone or light color paint for my toenails. I don't want any bright or dark colors like red, brown or black, I also don't want any design like glitters, flowers (or any other designs) or rainbow colors - I find them too loud and don't fit my personality. I do use paint for my fingernails too, but I always use colorless or the natural shade.
