  • I have long real nails and I aways wear bright colours and get designs done.  I get a lot of compliments and I'm definitely not trashy.

    It sounds to me like your SIL is uptight.  If SHE doesn't like it then of course it has to wrong, trashy, immoral etc. etc.

  • I think designs look trashy but not colors. At least not normal colors - neon colors and too metallic looking are trashy IMO. I also think ridiculously long nails look trashy.

  • They just had orange nails on the Today Show this morning so it's a new trend and not limited to hookers or the like

  • In the salon I go to, some of ladies get designs on their toes - it's summer. Many ladies get color on their nails. LOTS of ladies get white tips - me included. I don't see a lot of different color tips with designs unless they're on teens or ethnic ladies.

  • wow, um i guess that her opinion doesn't mean its true when i used to get my nails done years ago id go for white tips one time then have pattern another then id go colors and all over if get bored with white tips from time to time and other times i had a gem stone on top of a pattern i think it all looks pretty and feminine buuut i do feel if you have them at ridiculous long lengths then it trashy aswell as impractical :P

  • I don't think they look trashy or any color/design for that matter.

    I personally don't care for designs or very long nails, but un-conventional colors can look fun and fresh, where "reg." colors and french manicure look classy to me, so IMO it all comes down to what statement you want to convay : fun/ fresh or classy !

    I like both and often sports a metallic green or a grey (essie's mink muffs) or orange. But right now I have a pale pink on :)

  • Personally I don't prefer color or designs, I like my nails plain, usually I get a manicure with only clear polish. Too much color looks fadish to me but that's my opinion.

  • I personally love designs and colors on mine. I have friends who always get designs and colors and they look soooo much better then just te white tip.

  • Designs look trashy and tacky IMO. Orange on toes is OK but I think wearing bright flashy colors on your fingernails shows a lack of class. I wore my fair share of wacky colors as a teen (black, brown to match my chocolate patent leather boots, royal blue) but I wouldn't wear them as an adult.
