It's tiny, I'd only make it look worse confused.

Does anyone else not do this? Would you notice if you saw me with sandals on?

I don't either. No one has ever mentioned it to me so I am guessing it's not been noticed

Me neither. My little toenails usually fall off before they get more than a couple of mm shock

I don't really have pinky-toe nails.

Mine are tiny but I still paint them grin

But how Witch grin? They're so little.

I thought I was the only one with a tiny runt toenail. I do paint it, but actually I am painting the skin above for the sake of appearances!

I paint the skin so it looks like I have a toe nail. blush

I have tiny little toe nails and I paint them by dabbing on just enough varnish to cover and maybe add a little bit on the skin above the nail so it looks just a little bigger. You can't tell it's not all nail once it's done.

no

thats WEIRD

BrianTheMole Sun 08-Jun-14 21:28:34

I don't either.

FinDeSemaine Sun 08-Jun-14 21:31:04

I do what Holger does. I'd feel weird otherwise.

I honestly thought I was the only one with that kind of toenail & I also paint the skin to make it look like a nail blush

Small toe-nailed sisters, unite!

'I paint the skin so it looks like I have a toe nail' I have to do that too. Once I sprained my ankle (thought I'd broken it) and a doctor at A&E was examining my ankle/foot and noticed my pretend painted on nail and was laughing at itblush

ROFL grin I thought I was alone in this!

me too!! glad I'm not alone grin

This reminds me of a pedicure I had years ago. I'd obviously arrived mid spat between the owner and employee about who was going to do the first appointment (me). Employee was then in a foul mood and said nastily "what am I supposed to do with that!" when she reached my tiddly little toe nail. Made me feel like a freak.

I feel much less freaky now reading this grin

Yep I have the freaky miniature toe nail, I don't bother painting it.

StillaChocoholic Mon 09-Jun-14 07:13:09

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Glad to know I'm not the only one with naff toe nails though.

wasting I hold the brush vertically, dab in the vicinity of the nail using just a little polish, & remove the excess with a cotton-bud dipped in remover. Reading glasses & good natural light helps I'm getting old
