French or SolidPedicures …French or solid?

Here are my thoughts.

If you’ve got great looking feet, and specifically toes, you can wear a French pedicure, on occasion.  As a rule, however, I would suggest going with solid for the majority of the time. There are two reasons why.

First, no one thinks that overgrown toenails are appealing.  In fact, when you see toes that need clipping, the thought is an instant “gross!”  French pedicures, although they’re pretty, do give the illusion that the toenails have grown out, since the white edges are now pronounced, even though falsely so.

The second reason is that if you’ve found a killer pair of open toed-shoes, you want them to be the star without having to compete with the whites of your toenails.

If you want to have fun and go to the beach, lounge around, enjoy a night on the town, go for it.

This all comes down to what is the package you’re trying to create, when you’re using it, and what for…

If it were up to me….SOLID.
