Anyone know what I can do about this? My skin on my toes is extremely dry.
I mainly walk barefoot throughout the day and the red parts sometimes hurt a little. I found that it got worse with polish on the nails but I am not sure.

I think you have already identified why your feet are in such a bad way. Nothing on your feet ? That's a sure way to cause damage to the skin and create problems with dryness, injury, callouses and general soreness. Are there chilblains too ? Plus the pathogens that you are walking on day in and day out are not good for your feet.

Wash your feet twice a day, using a gentle soap, dry thoroughly and then moisturise. Wear clean laundered socks and always wear a shoe, slipper or trainer and I am sure there will be a massive improvement. Alternate your foot wear so that they have the chance to dry completely if your feet sweat quite a bit.

I would also suggest that you should seek the advice from a podiatrist as they will get to see them and can screen you for any potential health issues which could also be a contributing factor to the dryness.

I'll pass on commenting on polish....just leave off if in doubt.
