I own two nailpolishes...coral pink (close to flesh tone for me) and clear.

I only paint my toenails and very very rarely paint my fingernails. I have a habit of peeling the polish off so it's completely pointless for me.

I had a french manicure for a total of 2 days many years ago (it was for a wedding) before I broke a few of them off

I guess manicured nails and I just don't mesh well.

Ladies when in doubt, french is #1 on fingers and toes or go for a nice simple clear shade. Some women wear red with everything and it doesn't always work.
I agree with all of this.

I almost always wear an American tip (more natural looking than french). It's very rare that I have a color on my nails. The American tip matches everything and looks neat and clean.

Are these straight men? I don't know many of us who care much at all about women's nails. I always thought nails fell into the category of "things women do to impress other women," like expensive purses and certain types of clothes. If you're doing it to impress us, you're focusing on the wrong thing.

-Red nail polish usually means that they are lactose intolerant and enjoy fully automatic weapons.

-Blue nail polish means she is a very reasonable person and is punctual. Unfortunately this color also means they are very controlling and usually an alcoholic, so advance with caution.

-Black nail polish is usually a good indicator that they enjoy watching sports games and are probably the kind of woman who will put up with a cheater.
lol I love this.

I actually prefer color polish or a clear/sheer color to french manicures.

I paint my nails and there's nothing wrong with my riding skills

French manicures look trashy and cheap. End of story.

Because of work, I'm not allowed to have false nails (which I don't find appealing, regardless). And it's "highly discouraged" for my colleagues and I to have long nails. So, I keep my nails trimmed. In terms of color, I paint it based on what mood I'm in. I usually use clear polish. But sometimes, I go for a dark/navy blue, or dark green, a pale pink, or taupe.

I'm not a fan of neon or very bright colors. I've never even liked red, however.
