I had this going on Twitter and it did so well, I knew it would be a hit here!
When you paint both your fingernails and your toenails, do they HAVE to match?
For me, if I'm painting both, they definitely have to match! Otherwise one will go without. :)
i have to have them on same accord.....now to be honest, my fingernails will stay clear while i paint my toes....i wash my hands all day at work and its hard to keep polish fresh

Most of the time they match. But sometimes I only have time to do my nails! Lol
It is nice to have them match but for me normally they dont. Most of the time i don't have polish on my nails but when i do they never match my toes.
I'm such a matchy matchy kinda person so for me, yes they have to match.

sometimes, the same color, but other times i'll wear something like dark brown on my toes and dark plum on my fingernails, or a nude on my toes and something dark on my fingernails or vise versa
I try to have my nails and toes match but when they aren't I try to use a color closest to.
I don't like to have the same color on both, but they have to compliment each other or be in the same color category
I'm in the same camp as Alexis, I can't wear polish at work and even if I could as often as I need to wash my hands it'd quickly destroy the finish.
Usually my toes are dark, black or a burnt purple.. fingers are usually bare, or buffed to a shine. I do like the look of matching nails though, but I don't feel it's a must.
They're never the same cause my toes seem to last longer. So while I'll change my fingers I'll leave my toes for another week or so
Mine never match. But I make sure to wear colors that compliment each other.
Mine always do :) they don't have to but they do.

They don't have to match, but I like it when they do. But I do admit that my toe nails are always polished (and usually a dark color) while my finger nails go bare more often. While my toes are likely polished black, deep purple or burgundy, my finger nails are usually more unique colors because it's what I think people notice more than my feet!
I Would Say I Personal Dont Match My Nail And Toenails But If You Going Out Somewhere Nice I Would I Don't Always Paint My Nails For School Reason I am Not Aloud :( Which Is Unfair , I Think They Look Better Matching And Would Look Cuter To Match Your Outfit .

If I'm doing them both at the same time, yeah, I usually use the same polish for both. I get in colour "moods," and end up craving a certain shade.
But, I don't do my toes nearly as often as I do my fingernails, which is once a week once they start chipping. (My toes have been the same shade since late September...they don't chip, and I don't really have time to re-do them every time I do my nails)

I have to say mine do not match as in the same colour but they do match as in they are along the same colours.
At the minute I have a french manicure on my nails and baby pink on my toes - so they match and they don't.. if that makes sense!

I purposely never match them. I do however try to make them be somewhat complimentary and not too weird (like I'm not going to have cool blue-purple toes with bright neon yellow fingers. Though that does sound intriguing...)
If I'm wearing open toe shoes and going somewhere extra special then I do like for them to match otherwise just in general not really. I like to change my fingernail polish every couple of days cause I either get bored of the color or because the polish started to chip and I just don't have the time to do both fingernails and toenails.
For the Most part yes!
But my toes and finger nails never have the same color on them and if they do my toes will the have a design. I dont have to be an obvious matchy matchy type of person! i normally always hair a red toned nail polish on and my toes i go wild!!

I don't match them. I don't paint them on the same days so it's usually whatever strikes me when I sit down to paint them. I actually feel alittle awkward if I end up wearing the same color on my toes and nails

I'm a big fan of mismatching. :P Nope!
Nope, don't need to match. Mine do, my daughters' don't. My eldest school colors are red and gold (and black) but her class color is green so on spirit day she wears all four colors. My middle daughter's school colors are navy and gold, when she enter high school next year her class color will be pink (plus red, gold and black). When my youngest daughter enters her class color will be the same as the eldest's current one (the 4 class colors are pink, orange, green & blue which rotate every year from the outgoing seniors to the incoming freshmen).
Nope, I would put darker color on toe and lighter color on finger nail. Sometime mismatch could be perfect match ^o^
I guess I'm the odd one out: I cannot match. It would bother me too much if the colors are even similar. I would rather go without polish than paint toe nails and finger nails the same color. Right now, my toes are shimmery turquoise and my fingers are red sparkly French tips. As long as the toes and fingers are completely different, I'm happy. Doesn't matter which is the lighter or darker one.
