Toe Nail Monograms--Too Much?

Y'all know that I'm all about some monogramming...I mean really, I'm the Monogram Chick. However, even I have my limits. I was surfing the net today and came across "toenail monograms". Seriously, toenail monograms!



I had been suffering from bloggers-block (due, I believe, to my extended break from blogging) yet I knew immediately when I saw these that I'd be asking y'all what you think.
Now don't get me wrong, if it moves, I'll slap a preppy monogram on it {my brother-in-law likes to tease me and sister chick that we'd monogram our *hineys* if we could} but I think a monogram on the toenails could be a bit much. I am willing to be swayed, my position on the matter is not rock solid....what do y'all think? Would you sport these bad boys on your pretty polished toes? Just right? Too much? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

i mean, i love monograms not just because theyre preppy and delightful but also because they say who my stuff belongs to, who my plate belongs to, my purse, my vest, etc etc... but i already know who my toes belong to, because theyre attached, to me!!! i think its a little over the top...

At first I thought they were over the top. But I started thinking about it.. and for just the right occasion, they might be kinda cute. I don't think I could do them for every day, but maybe a summer BBQ or even a wedding day.

Hillcrest Acres said...

I'm with you. Monograms on the toenails - no way!!

Prep-E Girl said...

I think it is a bit over the top. I can think of better ways to spend my money. But...to each their own!

I personally love it! Why not, if I can wear monograms dangling from my ears, around my fingers, on my car, on my purse and headband why not jazz up my pedicure? I'm all for it!!

Hey sister-n-law chick...I was re-reading the blog and I think you ought to put the following caption under the picture "You can take a girl out of the trailer park, however you can't take the trailer park out of the girl" because that seems fitting. If my wife/your sis comes home tonight from her mani and pedi with that, I will more than likely lock her out of the house.
The next thing that someone will want is a tatoo of their initials instead of a wedding ring. I bet if you offered the monogramed toe idea for pets they would sell in a hurry! We could even get some for "Sir Elton of Brandon Rd"-it would be quite fitting...

Pink Maple said...

Are they decals or handpainted? If they are handpainted . . . then maybe, but you'd have to have perfect toenails. And even then only for casual summer events like a cookout or beach vacation.

Pink Preppy Party Girl said...

Unbelievable! Some people are so creative. I just love these.

Monogramchick said...

They are decals, just like what we put on our cars.

Preppy 101 said...

No, not gonna be putting those are my toenails. . . Glad to have you back!!

Rachel Ann said...

Wow, I love mongograms, but that seems a bit intense.

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

For the right occasion...I think it might be kinda fun. I like it!

Randall @ Happy For This Moment said...

It's too much. I always remember in my mom's old copy of the Preppy Handbook it had a long list of everything you shouldn't monogram - this should be added!

Darby said...

I kind of think they are cute!

Sarah said...

Wow! I want to say that is a bit too much but then I catch my breath and think...that is kind of cute--you would have to have the right kind of toes and toenails to pull it off though!

BLC :o said...

Not at all! I think it is just marvelous!!! Thanks for sharing. Xoxo-BLC

Rhea said...

They look cute, but I'd never do it or pay for it. I'm all about cute colors though...just not the monogram.

Kim said...

I'd probably do it one time just for fun!

Angie said...

I like monograms but they are too much for me!!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

I cannot believe they have Monograms for toe nails....hilarious!! For me that would be over the top...a little too much!

Liana said...

Too too much! they should read the preppy handbook...it lays out exactly what to monogram, i dont think piggies were included ;)

Hollie said...

hmmm, i'm on the fence with this one..but leaning more towards no.

but the more i keep thinking about it...it may be cute in the summer with flops!

Freck said...

Cringe....I looove monogramming things, but toes? I feel that's a little much.

Felicia said...

I love monograms but on the toes...I'm like you, I'd need to be swayed.

Chasity M said...

Oh wow...this blog is right up my alley! Although I live in Texas (not the true South) I still monogram absolutely everything. Except my toenails!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

My big toes aren't that pretty, so I surely don't want to draw attention to them with monograms. I love a good pedicure, but I will pass on the monograms.

Bernadette said...

I totally agree with LovesPINKandPEARLS--I know who my toes belong to!

However.

For a special occasion...

A VERY special occasion...

Maybe.

ko said...

No way!

Montee said...

Maybe just for fun. My daughter would probably love to monogram her toes. She's crazy like that.

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

hmmmm...I generally want to monogram anything and everything but will pass on the toes.

peace.love.terri said...

I love them!
I think they'd be oh-so-cute & the perfect convo starter for a Summer BBQ. "Hey! Check out my toes!" :)

Elizabeth said...

not.a.fan. This is just a little over the top, but to each their own :)

Martha McGlothlin Gayle said...

A little much, I must say. But hey, I guess there's always somewhere we didn't think to put a monogram! Love your blog and the name! I gave you an award on my blog:

The Golf Widow said...

My little girls would love it!However,they like each nail painted a different color, too. I'm sure my middle school/high school nieces would buy them.They are cute for the right person.

Spicy Wifey said...

Sometimes less is more. And sometime more is more!

I think its cute and on your toes...who will see really? So its something fun, just for the person who likes to be a little playful.

Carina said...

I think it's awesome!
Depending on what monogram... but, I think it's fun!
