    Mine have been natural for weeks. I like them polished in the summer...but honestly, I kinda "forget that they exist" until I am getting reading to walk out the door in sandals...then I think "oh dear...that isn't chic at all..." LOL!

    I need to commit to painting them this weekend! If I do paint them, I prefer an orange or brown/red shade.

    This week's been bad...all I've done is patch toenail polish over bad areas...I NEVER am without toenail polish even in the winter.
    I am always in a red orange or rusty, peach, orange color. Goes with the coloring.
    LOVE OPI colors. Equadorable Coral etc.

    At the moment they are a bright fire engine red,an OPI shade called Big Apple I think. Too lazy to go look at bottle. I love really dark green or purple shades too. For fingers they are usually natural or pale shades.

    I love green nail polish and used to wear it a lot! My fave shades are Dior Incredible Green (lime), Mavala Green Grass and Pygme (olive/chartreuse).

    But since I got my sinful red & black strappy sandals and Camper sandals with red floral embroidery, I'm stuck to Helena Rubinstein Temptress (deep red).

    Living in a country were we can wear sandals all year round means toes have to be very well kept at all times.

    Luckily great pedicures cost so little here...around $12 USD.

    99% of the time, my toes are french polished...most versatile and imho very chic...

    This week I had them painted a nude beige colour. Also quite pretty. 8)

    I had 'red wave' toenail polish put on about 3 weeks ago - and it's still in perfect tact - rare I must say.

    The same on my nails chipped in a few days, but the toes are lasting.

    Oh, same here. I always think that if I break a leg or am rushed to the hospital for whatever reason, I want my feet to look pretty. (Maybe it will divert attention from my thighs.)

    I ALWAYS have my toenails painted!! They're 10x easier for me to keep maintained than my fingernails.

    I use true red as a standby, but I usually have seasonal colors I prefer. I go a dark berry red in the winter. Summer is a pearlescent peachy tone, or pearl white. And lately, as a year round fad, I've been going for a shimmery fuschia color which I create by layering two coats of fuschia with one coat of a pale shimmery pink. I mixed the colors to make a hue that would perfectly coordinate with my favorite purse!

    I'm thinking this spring/summer I may go for something a little different, like a mint/aqua blend. I've been favoring clothing in that color lately.

    I ought to pull myself together and paint them red. The problem is that I KNOW that as soon as they are painted (in whatever color I may choose), I want to wear lipstick in a clashing color. Sigh...

    I am about to decide what colour to do mine for tomorrow. Got a fantastic ebay bargain - a Marc Jacobs "butterrum" cord skirt and I don't know whether to contrast with a summer bright or tone with a natural/french polish...Hmmmm, decisions, decisions. It's a tough life sitting here in the bank holiday sun deciding what colour to paint my toenails [smiley=grin.gif]

    Just learned that Europe's Rouge Noir is not the same as Vamp here in the states. I found out from makeupalley.com reviews that they used to be one and the same but they inexplicably "revamped" Vamp in the states and it is no longer identical to Rouge Noir, which is not available in the states. :'(

    So, Europe's Rouge Noir is the TRUE "Vamp." I actually don't paint my toes often so I still have the original Vamp from many years ago--it is still good too, surprisingly. The original Vamp's bottles read "Rouge Noir" above "Vamp." I love the color, and when I run out I will NOT try the revamped version, but will order Rouge Noir from Europe.

    Another favorite shade of mine for toes is OPI Chick Flick Cherry-- a fantastic, true red.

    I painted them with Max Factor`s no.718 "Ultra Blue" today. For some reason blue toenails have marked the beginning of the summer season for me the last four - five years. Since my fingernails mostly are "au naturel", I think it`s fun to freak out with different colours on my toenails.

    My toes were Big Apple red by OPI, but now and usually they are the OPI A Dozen Roses which is a basic pink. My nails are just buffed to shine.

    I love the true reds in winter, like a holly berry.

    I always do a royal purple in the fall, too, even back to when I had to mix my own with a very rare (at the time) blue. Still have it.

    I had a girlfriend once that for some odd reason, wanted to put make up on me. All the time she would ask if she could put make up on me. One night I agreed just for the hell of it. I had mascara, eyeliner, foundation, blush, the whole works. My toenails werent touched (thank god I was wearing my boots) but my fingernails were blue, red, yellow, and purple.

    What a sweetie! When my boys were little (3 and 4 yrs old) they wanted their toenails painted like Mommy. So I did! Jon got his grass green, which I had to buy for him, and Sam took purple.

    I have a brother a year older and two of my sisters are eight and nine years older than him. He was routinely made up, and had an alternate name "Little Suzy." He didn't even want to be left out of dress-up, it was simply too much fun and a big mess to boot, plus my mother was always half-way aggravated even when she was laughing because we all had to have baths. Poor Mom. Five little kids can wreck a nice lippie. She eventually kept all her makeup in her purse in the car at night.

    I like bright colours on my toes - if they're too dark it looks like I've dropped a dumbell on my foot.

    Although my fingernails are bare most of the time (painted for special occassions only as they always chip after 1 day and I can't be bothered to maintain them - I am constantly typing on a computer or heaving weights in the gym so they get a battering).

    I don't like unpainted toenails, though, and like to have a fun colour on there for my Thai boxing class.

    I loved Hard Candy in Sushi (a bright teal colour) but ran out a while back. Also hot pinks in various sorts, pillarbox red, and I've found Revlon's One Perfect Coral is a gorgeous colour for toes. I had a rich, metallic purple on last week (Barry M - a cheapo brand in the UK but with a huge range of colours). This week it's silver.
    I've done hot pink with gold tips before now - kind of like a French manicure (or should I say pedicure?) but feels more like an Indian manicure - hot pink and gold seems to be a popular combo in the sari shops near where I live. Very pretty on the feet though!
