Surgery Question- Nail Polish
Not weird at all... It is actually the first question on my list for my pre-op appt tomorrow! I wear gel polish and so taking it off at the hospital is not an option. The good news is I do my own gels (I was a manicurist right after high school) so my plan was to do them with just clear gel if needed but I too have been pondering this issue :)

As mentioned above, no polish because the anesthesiologist needs to see your nails for blood oxygen level.
HOWEVER, you can paint your toenails any color you want! So pedi away!

If I was you I'd go with a simple French manicure, but make sure the manicurist doesn't use any colour except the white tips. They often use a light pink, THEN the white tips.
I had an especially nice manicure awhile back. It was basically a French one, but instead of white tips my manicurist did a pearl sparkle powder on the tips. It was subtle but really pretty.
