No.  I never have matching feet and toes, and I think it’s fine, as long as one is neutral.  I HATE french toes.  It’s one of my biggets pet peeves, but I am not sure why…

Not a fan of French anything.  They’re so not-natural looking, in my opinion.  And I think it’s fine to go for a solid, light color on your fingernails and a different color on your toes.  When I got married, I had a dark orange color on my toes (matched my flowers!) and used a very-light-pink-almost-neutral solid color on my fingernails.  I NEVER wear French on my fingernails so I thought it would look weird to wear it that way for the wedding and have them like that in our wedding pictures.

I often wear different color mani and pedi’s. I actually like the look of French manicures (I think they look clean) but never wear them because they don’t last as long on me. For some reason, chipping is so much more obvious on a French mani than a solid color one.

I love french manicures!  I usually end up getting french on both the hands and feet b/c it is the only thing that I can’t do myself. 

But I think it would be ok to get diff colors on hands and feet.

In My Humble Opinion french pedi’s make your feet look like hands with overgrown nails!

I did french on fingers and solid colored toes and I thought it looked very natural. I never paint my fingers but always have my toes done so it worked well for me!

It definitely won’t look weird having a regular pedi with a french mani, if that’s what your gut is telling you!  I personally don’t care for french manis OR pedis.  I do like paler colors for manis, but there’s just something so unnatural about french manis.  Oddly enough, I’m fine with bright red nails, which certainly isn’t natural either!  But french manis just somehow don’t vibe with me.  To each her own, right?
