Let’s talk toenail grooming. You’re on Team Polished if you apply nail polish, and Team Naked if you don’t. Note that if you apply a clear nail strengthener but nothing else, you’re on Team Naked.

I recently shared how I carefully nursed my big toenails back to health after they tore. After four months they have completely recovered, looking strong and healthy.

I LOVE the look of groomed and varnished nails, but my toenail episode has made me wary of having regular pedicures and applying my much loved “Kyoto Pearl” nail polish. I’m not sure whether my nail problems were the result of regular nail polish application, but I want to err on the side of caution.

So I’ve decided to give my toenails a break from nail polish and professional pedicures for at least a year. Instead, I’m giving myself regular pedicures, meticulously applying foot moisturizer and nail strengthener. I now bat for Team Naked Toenails, with feet that look “just polished enough”.

Over to you. Do you bat for Team Polished or Team Naked Toenails? Remember that there is no right or wrong answer, and that you are merely stating a preference. You can also bat for both teams if you like. Let’s hear it.
