Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
My brother actually made a comment about this when he noticed my toes and nails were two different colours. I usually do match them, but I've been too lazy. I change my nails every other day, I dont have the patience to be doing both my fingers and toes especially when my toes still look fine. Not going to lie, it kind of annoys me when their two different colours.Of course they dont HAVVVVVVE to match, but what do you prefer? What do the "fashion experts" say?

My toes are blue and my finger nails are purple. There are no rules for me.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

My toes and tips never match for a few reasons. I have too many polishes I want to try, some colors look awful on my hands but gorgeous on my feet, and I do my own manis but go to the salon for pedis so my toes stay the same color longer.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

Nopeee. Never. I honestly think I've never actually worn the same color on my toes and fingers! Sometimes, they sort of coordinate (same color family-lighter shade on the fingers, darker shade on the toes)

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

Right now, I have no nail polish on my fingers and orange polish on my toes. No rules, no matter what Karren says. LOL especially if you do it yourself. A professional mani/pedi sometimes you don't get a choice of 2 different colours so you get same.

If you're going to a special event (where both are exposed) it's probably good to be matching.

But.... for everyday, I don't think it matters at all. My toe polish always lasts longer than my nail polish, plus I tend to prefer darker colours on my toes.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

No rules when it comes to Polishes for me, my nails and toes never match! I don't think it matters at all! I love color. I do wear darker colors on my toes and lighter colors on my finger nails

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

Mine rarely do unless I'm on vacation or a special event like a party. I get my pedicures done professionally every 2 weeks and I do my own manicures so of course I change my nails multiple times in between pedis. No biggie for me!

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

Toes should match the other toes, but i don't care if they match my fingers.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

My toes and fingers will never match. I keep my nails french tip (pink & white acrylic). I fell in love with OPI "Big Apple Red" so for the last year my toes have always been that red. I just decided at my last pedi to switch to a pretty bright orange and I'm really pleased that I did.

Even if I were going to an important event, my fingers would be french but my toes would probably go back to a deep, classy red.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

My fingers and toes never match! On my fingers, I am currently wearing WnW's Private Viewing and on my toes, it's Rimmel's Rapid Ruby.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

I don't like mine matching, in fact when I was working at the beauty spa that offered manicure and pedicure, lots of people don't like the color matching either. I usually go brighter for my toes and lighter for my finger nails.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

Mine never do. Because I am... well... we will call it toenail polish challenged I have to be careful what colors I stick on them. The darker ones are so hard to get off of my toes. Not to mention that the colors that look good on my hands don't always look good on my feet for some strange reason.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

I don't tend to match them. I also change the polish on my fingers far more often than i do my toes.

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

I don't think you need to match, i like to respect a theme or similar colors but i rarely apply the same polish on my toes and hands, that would be too boring !

Re: Should nail polish on toes and nails match?

no not necessarily. it all depends on the person!
post #26 of 38

I don't usually match them, but then again, I don't wear a lot of crazy colors. Usually I'll put colors on my toes, and then I sculpt and paint my nails with a clear sparkle/shimmer polish. I hate chips and I hate dirt  under my nails, so sometimes I will paint the underside of my nail white to give it a frenchy feel without being too over the top. It keeps the dirt away!

I think it only matters if it matches if you're going to a formal event with open toe shoes then you will want to look your very best and have toe and nails match but for every day flip flops or bare feet running around in the sun, who cares so long as the polish isn't chipped or gross looking.

@topic question: I say absolutely not! I used to match my fingernail and toenail polish all the time, but these days I find I'm actually preferring doing a really natural looking color on my fingernails, and leaving the really bright and dark colors for my toes. Mostly this is because when I paint my toenails (and especially when I do multiple layers) I find that the color lasts for weeks, so really noticeable colors stay looking nice on my feet.

 However, any time I paint my fingernails, I find that the color chips and peels after a couple of days (sometimes faster, but it also depends on the brand a little bit. OPI and Essie tend to be better for lasting longer I find.) So, if I paint my fingernails a really noticeable color, it can start looking kind of crappy pretty fast. That's what I find anyway.

I try to go for French Tips on the fingers and whatever suits me on the tootsies, so No.  On some occasions I do try to match, but if I ever got gruff for mismatching, I'd have to get medieval.

Nope :)

I dont match mine by colour or shade, its more fun that way.
