    Those people who have perfect toenails that are french manicured - are those real? I mean do they put acrylic nails on toes? I so envy people who have perfectly cut and polished toes!!

      They do a french pedicure. You nails do need to be a little bit long for them to look right. The first few days are awesome!

      I would recommend that if you are doing it for your wedding, to have your toes done there or go with a polish. The sand kind of buffs away the polish or it can chip. At least mine did.

      You can get acrylic toenails. My nail person said that they really hurt though. And most people would come back to have them taken off after a few days.

      I've heard that some places won't do acrylics on toes because if they get and stay damp, they are prone to funguses and other icky stuff.

      Take a good top coat (reapply EVERY day) and the same white polish to touch up and you should be fine.

        They can do ANYTHING these days with mani and pedi, especially pedis. The french is usually natural, and yes anything extra acryllic, crystal, etc will hurt a little bit. I would as Erin said, grow your nails slightly longer so the french tip can be applied better and do it there--schedule your spa apointment.

          Make sure they put a non yellowing top coat on. It will help. And I wouldnt walk in the sand until after the wedding. And try not to get sunscreen on them.

            I love the french pedi also! My nail tech never does acrylic on my toes. It's actually not very hard for them just to paint your toe nails french & it looks really nice!!
            As far as how long in advance before your wedding, I would want to do it the day before or even the day of just so it last longer.

              also be careful with mosquito repellent - the ones in spray - depending on the formula it can make your polish all soft and sticky (basically you can take it off by scrapping it !)

                  I love french pedicures! In the south that is what everyone has. I had to get an acrylic toenail put on my toe once because someone stepped on my toe at a party and I lost my toenail. It was great. I just kept it for a little while for vanity reasons, but it served its purpose.

                    I love french manis and pedis. My toenails last a while, but for the wedding I plan to get them done once I'm there or take some white polish like Becks said, just in case. Don't want to have ugly toes in my wedding pictures
