    no makeup too/either

    Hi,

    A: I just did not wanted to wear make-up today.
    B: Hey! Today, I put on no makeup, too/either.

    Should I use 'too' or 'either' in the above sentence after 'no'? I think 'either' works but maybe in informal English 'too' could work.

    Thanks.

    Use only 'either'.

    The natural answer is "Nor did I". You'll also hear "I didn't want to either".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
