Do you ever look at other people’s nails and form an opinion about their personalities? For example, when you notice a woman’s perfectly un-chipped, pale pink manicure, do you immediately think that she’s conservative and sophisticated?
Whether they’re glammed up with sparkly polish or left plain and unadorned, nails can tell a lot about a person. And with all of today’s polish and decor options, there are countless ways to speak volumes about yourself. This may make you wonder, what do my nails say about me?
These say the wearer, like Brooklyn Decker, is “perfectly polished,” pun intended. Fire engine-red nails tell others that you are daring, outgoing, and highly confident. Wear these for a night out to show off your diva side!
Dark Blue and Black Nails
Blue and black are not for the faint of heart. These shades tell others that you are outgoing and live on the wild side. When people see these nails, like on comedian Whitney Cummings, they get the impression that you live an adrenaline-filled lifestyle full of constant excitement!
Barbie pink nails, like Audrina Patridge‘s, are for light-hearted, optimistic girls–even if you can’t drive the Barbie dream car, why not rep the dream manicure?
Glittery nails are reserved for true glamour girls like Katy Perry–even if real diamonds are out of the question, nails can still look decadent enough to break the bank. Try encrusting your digits with pavé Swarovski crystals to get the right reflection!
Rocking a neon hue is a good sign that you’re up for a good time. Polishes in neon pink, green, orange, and yellow hues let others know that, like AnnaLynne McCord, you are an outgoing extrovert that loves a good party!
Stars like Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Jessica Simpson are frequently seen appearing to be in need of a manicure. When people see chipped nail polish, they can tell that you live a busy lifestyle and don’t have a lot of time to relax (or worse, don't care much about your appearance). If you see that your polish is chipped, take three minutes out of your day to remove the rest. Clean, naked nails are better than the alternative.
