Even a thin strip still gives the toenail the look of added length...not something I'd see as desirable.

I've been wearing colors all summer. I haven't had a French pedi in ages. Hm...think this thread inspired me to go out and get one.

I don't just hate a french pedicure, I super hate it!
Almost makes me want to barf just thinking about the look of longer toenails.

Would be fun to post a pic after I get my toes done.

I hate the French Pedi too. I thought I was the only one!

I seldom get a manicure, but it's usually French when I do.

For toes, I like a rich red or deep pink.

I agree with you.

I get an "american tip" on my fingers which is not that stark white line painted on the nail. It looks VERY natural because they use a clear base and a buff color for the tip.

On my toes I prefer more color and personality.

I remember reading on one blog that the OP loved them on feet rather than hands. I tried it out myself once and I thought she was crazy. Such a look makes the feet look artificial, and like other posters have said, the nails are too long/wide to work. Otherwise a strip would be too thin/thick. It's very hard to make it look good.

They do provide an upside over hands, though: they last longer. Then again, all pedicures do that because you don't do much except walk.

I think, as you, that the toenail's just look too long or ARE too long in order to achieve the effect.
I am with you. I think long toenails are gross.

French manis are OK.
