Do You Match Your Manicure and Pedicure?

I have nail polish on my toe nails almost all year round but summer is the time when everyone else can see it. And…comment on it. This is exactly what my friend, male-who-is-forty-years-old, did. I was actually shocked as he is the person who could not care less about my nail polish.

He: What’s with your nails?

Me: What is it?

He: Well, your manicure matches the dress (while it most certainly wasn’t). And what about the pedicure? Why is it red?

Me: Hmmm… Doesn’t red go with everything?

I wore Essie Over the Knee for my manicure and Illamasqua Alarm for my pedicure.

And do you match your madi and pedi? Do you go for one colour or just try to co-ordinate the shades? Or maybe you just could not care less and would easily wear acid green for your mani and matte pink for your pedi or whatever your choice would be?
