    Cool What color is your pedicure?

    Time to whip those sandals and flipflops out!

    What color are your toes wearing this season?

    I just bought OPI La Paz-itively Hot. It's a blue based hot pink.

    oooh, good question!

    I usually stick with a french manicure but sometimes go deep red. Especially for peep-toe shoes, that is classic.

    Another question- do you match your nail polish with your toe polish?
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    I don't. I don't like my nails enough to showcase them! I usually keep my fingernails a neutral color and go crazy with my toes.

    My apologies to the mods for my original too-spicy title.

    I love that color Laurent. I usually wear something like that or deep red. My hands are always painted clear, I have very short nails and nothing else looks good on them.

    This past winter I've been babying my toes by NOT wearing any polish at all for several weeks, and putting Vitamin E oil on them as much as possible. They've improved.

    ETA: OK what was your original title, bury it deep in text lol

    I used the word "toejob." I think it was either a little too spicy for a title or maybe not a clear, accurate enough description. Pedicure is better!

    Same here. A nail tech told me once that the colour you paint your toes reveals your personality. I usually go for a coral colour in summer, and if I have time in winter, a deep red colour. Coral is one of my fave colours.

    I've heard on style shows that coral is supposedly a color that looks good on everyone. Maybe I'm not choosing the right coral, but it doesn't on me!

    I'm very fair with cool undertones, though, so that's probably why. It looks fabulous on my warm, yellow undertoned mother, though!

    I liked an understated coral (if that makes sense) and I also like mochas and mauves. Mauve is so ambiguous though.. it can mean a lot of different things to different people.

    That's a gorgeous shade, Laurel. I love hot pink.

    I usually wear a beige ,pearly color. It's neutral, but it's delicate and flattering ,whether I have a tan or not.

    I love those tan colours, too. But I don't often paint my toes that colour. Coral is best on people with olive/yellow undertones. I am blonde with blue eyes, but I am definitely a "warm"-toned person with olive skin, although I'm white as a ghost at the moment. I get my skin tone from my Norwegian mother.

    My sister has decreed we all get pedi's with candy-apple red or the closest shade to that we look good in! This has gone on for years now, since she discovered our cousin & I had plain toes. She reacted much as if we had appeared nude in public-in fact implied naked toes were worse! We quickly got with the program! I too think it wise to give them a rest in winter. I like nudey shade on fingers (mine) to make my already long fingers appear longer! While I am here, this is a friendly reminder: cream elbows AND the back of your heels daily!
    I have seen cute sandals ruined by flacky heels!

    I'm a warm, too, but for some reason the pearly, beige seems to work for me. But then I have greenish brown eyes and auburn hair. I always wanted blond hair and blue eyes, though.

    I am a big fan of the pastel toenails, but i'm thinking of going for a bright bold colour next time.
