I don't mind going a bit crazy on my toes, but I generally stick to bright pinks, red, and oranges. This summer I did try green!

On my hands I typically stick to reds, pinks or neutrals. I did do copper a few weeks ago, and I liked it. It did not seem too crazy. I don't think I can do blue on my hands.


On an autocorrecting iDevice.

I'm like some of the previous posters. My fingers are usually 'conservative', light neutrals or french, but with my toes, almost anything goes: sparkles, neon colors, black, etc etc etc.

I always wear traditional colors, like off-white, nudes, peaches, pinks, reds, burgundy.

However, with my next pedi I'm going to be a little adventurous and try black.

I have yet to find the light pink/peachy color that works for my hands. They are all too sheer. I have been using gold as a defacto neutral.

I thought this might look good for your coloring. What do you think?

Prefer neutrals for may mani-pedi, but Imost often wear white on toes in summer, I just changed to a barely there pink the other day to switch it up. Fall/Winter, usually reds and neutrals.

I like either red, shell pink, or deep purple. Right now my toes are red.

The color might work. The last light Essie I got took 4 coats to become opaque.

What does age -- "certain" or otherwise -- have to do with anything?

I wear whatever color I'm in the mood for: pink, purple, blue, aqua, green ... Just not black on my toes. It would look like fungus.

Never had a pedi and never painted my toenails! Don't have mani's or paint my fingernails any more either but I keep them trimmed and clean.
