To Match or Not To Match????

The Nail Files

Nail File Friday is here and it is time for the big reveal of the poll from last week.


The question was.... 
Should your finger nail polish match your toenail polish?

Here is the break down from the poll:


3% said, yes they absolutely should always match
18% said, they don't need to match as long as they are in the same color family
79% said, no way! They don't need to match at all.  Many people said they were willing to be much more daring on their toes than their fingers!


As for me, I never match my fingers and toes.  I paint my fingers once a week and my toes as little as possible. lol
This week I just repeated a look I have done before.

BUT-

Here is my inspiration nail photo.....

Have a great weekend!!!!!

I usually wear fun colors on my toes, and neutral ones on my fingers.

Oooh, I want to do stripes like the ones on your inspiration photo. How pretty! I love the dark blue polish, too!

I never match either. I didn't get to vote. But I'm with the 79%. I always do a pale or colorless palette on my hands because they chip so quickly. I do a bold color on my toes.

Have a great weekend, darling.

xo,

Depends on my mood. Have a mani/pedi for tonight... Match or no match, that is the question. Its Friday.. Could get a little crazy. Interesting poll!

Have a great weekend and Mothers Day

No way, they don't have to match at all. My coworker came in with neon pink toes and pastel nails this week and I thought it looked awesome!

Laura said...

LOVE that color! I am trying to break from my old school ways of matchy matchy. Its a hard habit to break!

Cara said...

MIdnight Cami is one of my favorite colors! That inspiration picture is so cool, love the matte look. Have a wonderful weekend!

I am a bit OCD about painting my nails- fingers about 3-4X/wk and toes at least once- I find it therapeutic! Love the deep blue and your inspiration photo is one I have drooled over before as well!

I'm with you! I paint my toes one bright coral or pink color and it lasts 2-3 weeks. Meanwhile I paint my nails at least once a week :)

tara said...

i'm with you! i paint my toes every few weeks and my nails every week!

Sarah Stright said...

Ha, my fingers and toes never match- unless accidentally. It's mainly because I'm totally lazy though.

Mine most often "go" together, but don't match if that makes sense. : )

WendyB said...

Put me in the "no way" category!

I didn't get the chance to take the poll, but I really can't stand when the hands and toes match. It looks good on other people, but it's not for me. Then again, I hate when anything matches!

Annie said...

I wish I could do that to my nails - the stripes look awesome! And love that blue Essie you're wearing :)

I'm pretty classic, I usually do match my toes with my fingernails. But I do like how others wear them differently! Love that midnight blue nail polish :)

My toes seem to last a bit longer, so I just repaint my nails different colors :)
