Reading this, I found myself wondering how many people think about the ingredients in nail polishes? What about the acetone in the nail polish remover?

How many people refuse to eat things like artificial sweeteners (thinking it is a toxic chemical), yet will paint chemicals which are actually known to be toxic on their nails? I know they've been trying to make these polishes safer over the past few years, but, have you read the ingredient list? A lot of it still contains things like toluene, formaldehyde, etc. What about the sunscreen thread? Refuse to eat "chemicals" but put them on your skin daily in the form of sunscreen, makeup, etc?

I don't use nail polish because it smells and tastes horrible, causes damage to nails (as does nail polish remover), and promotes nail fungus.

I love nail polish but it wears off too soon to keep up with so I don't use that much

The only actions that I can control are my own.

I only wear it on my toenails. Finger nails chip too quickly.

I'm just not giving up on me. I will never stop trying to be healthy, no matter my failures and shortcomings.

I always have my toenails painted but rarely paint my fingernails. I rarely paint them because the polish always chips and chipped polish does drive me crazy. If I could paint them without it chipping all the time, I would. My toenail polish never chips - it will stay on forever.

I love, love, lovelovelovelovelovelovelove nail polish. I think my husband thinks I'm nuts with how much I adore it, but - hey - we all have that one thing, right?

My current favorite colors are Timbleberry:

Not very, I have polish but don't use it so much. Time consuming and it doesn't last long enough for me.

I'm a pretty simple person where nails are concerned. I don't wear nail polish and keep them cut short, using a nail brush and soap often.

Well, I think that clean, neat, healthy-looking nails are a part of being attractive...but color is not necessary.

I do put polish on my toenails, but I just buff my fingernails and keep them groomed but relatively short. I type, garden, dance (long nails can spear people on the dance floor) and do lots of active things, so long, polished fingernails aren't for me. Plus on your fingers you notice the chips and imperfections right away...so annoying.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I love wearing it, however, my hands are into so many things (gardening, sewing, cleaning, and on), that it chips quickly, so I don't wear it much unless I am going out or to some important event. Flip flops and sandals are big here in AZ, so painted toenails are a must.

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

If I do nail polish on my hands...I will only do GEL NAILS which last 2 weeks or longer. So yes...nail polish is so important but I have very little time so only do Gel.

Not at all. My fingernails are complete crap anyways and terribly short, so I don't bother. I got fake nails for my wedding and I HATED them. Getting them off felt so good.

i find if i don't polish them constantly, like each and every day, they get chipped and ratty looking. sooooo i don't bother at all. i have no time or desire to spend half an hour each day trying to make my nails look nice; no-polish looks better than chipped polish, so i just go au natural.

Polish the toes, but not my hands. I don't wear the gels anymore and the polish doesn't last on my hands. I do have manicures with nails buffed.

How important is my toes polished? I guess it must be somewhat important, because I don't remember not having them polished. emoticon

My nails seem weak and wearing polish messes them up for months afterward. Not worth the trouble. Wish I could. Looks nice.

I love nail polish. I've purchased approximately 75 different shades trying to find the perfect Laura Palmer Blue, to no avail. I wear nail polish only rarely, and usually only on my toe nails. When I have nail polish on my fingernails, I feel like they can't breathe. Yup. That's how I feel.

My toenails are always polished and I change the color every week or two. I get acrylic nails done once every 4 weeks, with a fill in between. Usually french tips, but occasionally I'll get colored tips just for a change. It make ME feel good.

My toenails are always polished. If they are not perfect who cares? No one looks at your feet that much. My fingernails are another story. I will get a gel manicure for a special occasion. I can't stand for my nails to be chipped. If they are chipped it has to come off. I just wash my hands to much to have polish.

In some ways, I am a girly girl. Even though I'm 54, I like to look sexy for my husband, and I don't mind that others might say I'm attractive or "hot" too.

But I was raised in the school of hardknocks and I honestly did not understand how anyone would care about something like manicured fingers and nail polish. If I had a bottle sitting around and was bored, I might polish my nails, but it was not like I ever thought this might be a problem if they chipped. Who would notice or care? I thought nobody.

Then I read discussions like this and possibly overheard some real people talking about their viewpoints of the importance of well manicured nails. It was then that I realized at least a few people out there really would notice chipped nails, or would think it disgusting if a woman wore sandles without polishing her toenails. I still don't "get" that one because while some might prefer the look of polished toenails, it is not cleaner or anything like that. I actually still think most people, both men and women are not going to make much of a judgment about someone based on how well polished, groomed and perfect one's nails are, but some do, and this is why at least on a few special occasions when I attemp to dress up, I will also make sure I have fresh nail polish. If my toes are going to show, I polish those too.

While I love the idea of painted nails, the reality is too much effort for me. I work in child care and wash my hands probably 100 times a day. Nail polish isn't safe for babies to chew on anyway, so between babies chewing on my fingers and the constant hand washing wearing it off, I don't wear it on my fingers. My toes however, are another story. They are always painted.

I have absolutely no interest in nail polish. I might own two bottles that are probably dried out and unusable because of age.

I'm not into nail polish. I like to keep my nails clipped very short, and nail polish just doesn't look good on short nails. I'm a "girly girl" when it comes to clothes and accessories, but I just never got into the whole nail polish thing. Keeping my nails cut short means I don't have to worry about breaking them.

i use nail polish on toes primarily. I can't keep it looking good on my fingers. It's my guilty pleasure!

i like applying polish and feeling girly, but to me its more important to put make up on daily it makes me feel good about myself. I don't see a lot of women even putting make up on anymore or lipstick that have been married for years.
I love it when my hubby looks at me and tells me I look and smell pretty, I maybe overweight but I still try to look nice for hubby, the weight is tough cause of all the pain I'm in all the time and it's tough exercising when I want, but its not for lack of trying.....

Starting to like the new me!

If my toes are not painted something is WRONG. I don't like how unpainted toes look at all.

Not as important as keeping my nails trimmed and clean, both hands and feet.

I think life is not so much about waiting for the storms to be over, as much as it is, learning how to dance in the rain.

I rarely if ever do my toenails.
I don't wear undressed feet in my shoes.

My nails go through stages. When they grow and look decent, sometimes I'll paint them.
Sometimes I won't.

It doesn't matter that much to me. If I wish to do it - it's for me, not for anyone else.
I tend too chip and break the polish so much; it only looks good for a temporary space of time.

I almost always have my toes painted, even in the winter. I love having fun toes when I take off my shoes in yoga class. My fingernails are usually bare - I do a lot with my hands and they chip within hours. I do like to have them painted for interviews, though... a very light pink, usually.
