    I do my own at home sometimes.  I wouldn’t really call it a trend, it’s been popular/common for as long as I can remember.

    Ooh, I don’t like to be the first to disagree, but I think they look like you need to trim your toenails. I don’t think I’d think less of a person who has one — still beats actually needing to trim your nails!!

    I find it looks funny on my toes since my baby toenail is almost non-existant…

    I think it depends on where you live.  In NYC, I wouldn’t be caught dead with one.  But in upstate NY, where my sister lives, they are all the rage.

    Also, they remind me of acrylic toenails, which I think is what puts me off of them.

    Interesting. I never knew this was up for debate! I thought “French” was just the way to go. I’m curious to see others’ responses!

    I’m not crazy about the look, mainly like someone else said, they look fake to me.

    oh wait, i voted “eh” but i didn’t realize you meant just PEDIs – Definite no. They look like you have big fake acrylics on your toes..

    I like how they look and I agree with august15bride, I thought that was the “way to go!”

    I am not crazy about them b/c as mary-alice-me said it looks like your toe nails are to long and to be completely honest a lot of the people I see with them they ACTUALLY do need to cut their toe-nails! 

    I prefer colour on the toes and natural or french finger nails personally!

    I can’t stand acrylic nails, but love getting french pedis. I didn’t realize that it was an issue in some areas. I’ve never even heard about it being tacky. Well, at least I know not to go to NYC with a french!

    I love color and I am very uptight about the upkeep of my toes, I know its weird but I think you should spend the same time grooming your feet the way you do everything else. However, I never did the french thing till my wedding at the urging of sister and Mother-In-Law. Well I hated it from the get go. Just looked weird to me and it does make my nails look longer than they are. Just prefer color. I, personally, dont give a crap about trends or where people would not be caught dead with something. I am sure they do things I would not be caught dead doing. If you like it go for it!

    I think sometimes (when the white line is thin and the pink is not too pink) they look good.  I have to agree though, the majority of the time it looks like some nail clippers are in order.

    Haha, I’m in NYC and I get french mani/pedi’s all the time. I think they look classic and clean.

    Star & Bree: I think it’s maybe because some people in the city actually get acrylic toenails and they tend to be french manicured.  I think that’s what it makes me think of whenever I see them!
