They're definitely not my thing. I keep my toenails short.

However, I do think the toenails in the first picture look good on her.

From the poll results your not alone!

The girl with the flower doesn't look so long or bad. The Red and the pinkish color one look gross.

Great if you're wearing nothing but sandals - within reason of course.

But when you're wearing good socks or nylons? Or running shoes on a 10-mile jaunt? No thanks!

Those with nocturnal partners probably would hear some protests. My late husband kept a closer eye - or calf, maybe - on my toenails than I did.

Ewww, what's sexy about those bony feet with the matching pink fingernails? And it emphasizes the fact that her toes are crooked to boot, toenails going off in different directions!

I agree, the French tip with the flower is not too long...very pretty!

The red is a definite no for me.

Woah those are horrible. How do you workout with long toenails?? Open Toed sneakers? I can't stand long toenails. So creepy when they scrape against the bedsheets and make that awful noise.

I've noticed this too.

It's probably one of those things that women do up until the day when they're doing something like pushing a shopping cart through the grocery store, and accidentally hook one or two of those talons on the rotating back wheel of the cart. Unless the cart is going in reverse, up come the nails.
