another female perspective:

I very very rarely wear nail polish... I don't like the scent, even when it's dry...

on the rare occasions when I do, it's either something neutral or barely-noticeable, like beige or light pink = just being more put-together than usual;

or something brighter/ more colorful, like sparkly magenta, copper, etc. = fun, outgoing, carefree.

for me, though, it's only on fingers- I think polish on toenails is kinda trashy-lookiing

Pink: Feeling like going shoe shopping or doing something with the girls - not in the mood for dealing with men.
Brown, tan, or copper: Beach
Orange: Doing something creative (writing music and such)
Black: Feeling a bit..... dominant

Note: Beware of alternating colors. This often indicates split moods, which can be highly confusing to others.

but to be fair she works as a doctors office receptionist so she has to keep her nails professional.

In my observations some men do notice bright nail polish.

Most of the time I wear some neutral beige color for 2 reasons:

- it's versatile and goes well with all clothes
- shows imperfection less when some chipping occurs

Wearing bright colors does make me feel sexier. I don't like pink at all in anything, so the color would be in the red/wine spectrum. In the winter I use some brownish colors; in summer - orange sometimes, particularly on a beach. It's a happy color I find appropriate in the sun. Besides, I just like orange and it looks good on me. Of course, there's orange and then... there's "orange" ! It's not something you can describe on a forum.

Not that Jeep asks about female input, but hey, we always add our worthless cents where they don't belong anyway.

Don't really care for Black, it clashes to much with your beautiful blonde hair, your massive cleavage, tight fitting jeans, tanned smooth skin and your awesome blue eyes,,,

Well, I can't say I've seen a normal grown-up woman wearing black. It's something you see on teen goth, punk, or whatever girls. To me it looks like they dug dirt and forgot to wash their hands.

My wife is always surprised when I say anything about her nails. She gets manicure and pedicures quite often and on many occasions she does her nails herself. I usually notice when she puts these little tiny sparkly things (smaller than glitter) on them. It doesnt say anything about her other than she likes to have her feet and hands look good.

Now, see, I've always been under the impression that toenails were the ones that had to be done or it looked trashy or "unfinished." Like that was just common knowledge or something. I don't know where I picked that thought up, but...

I like wearing polish, but it bothers me because it can't be the healthiest thing in the world.

Sorry, back to the men!

I notice nail color and when I see it I keep on trucking. Something about it makes the prettiest women look like a coke wh*re.
