Of the great, important debates consuming public airtime – you know, like climate change – comes another: Can you actually match the nail polish on your fingernails to the nail polish on your toenails?
That was the question facing the Mamamia Out Loud team this week who vehemently disagreed on the rules that exist regarding the matching of nail polish on feet and hands.
According to Mamamia Out Loud’s host Holly Wainwright, sorry, but you should absolutely never be matching your toes to your finger nails.
Listen to Holly, Jessie and Rachel discuss the beauty dilemma below. Post continues after audio.
“I need to make this clear, we don’t really talk about beauty issues much on Mamamia Out Loud because none of us really give a stuff… but you can’t have the same colour nail polish on your fingernails and toes,” she said on the podcast this week.
“A girl’s got to draw some lines..I do like a fashion rule… [and] I’ve been living by this rule for a long time.
“It is considered “tacky”, although further research may suggest that view might be a little outdated.”
Her co-hosts Jessie Stephens and Rachel Corbett weren’t as enthusiastic about this apparent ‘rule’, though. After all, who has time, energy or the creativity to pick more than a single colour?
It appears the internet are as conflicted as our hosts.
For example, according to The Telegraph, our nails shouldn’t match per se, but they also shouldn’t clash. Joy.
