What Your Nail Colour Says About You

There are plenty of tell-tale signs you outwardly provide of your personality. And the nail colour you chose is one of the biggest. Really!

So if you want to parade an accurate image of yourself to everyone you encounter it's probably a good idea to work out what your nail colour says about you.

Nail polish colours

Clear

Clear nail polish colours are for people who are very neutral. Clear nail polish portrays that you are very easy-going and don't get upset easily. You don't need the attention of others every minute of the day and you are happy with yourself the way you are.

Pastel

Pastel-nail-polish-wearing people are the friendliest ones of the lot. Wearing pastel nail polish says that you are very gentle. The downside to this colour is that it shows that you can be materialistic and are prone to being vain. Be careful of that.

Hot pink

This colour is for the spunky and spicy. A very feminine colour, hot pink is for the kids who embrace a bit of girliness, who also have a touch of 'tude.

Pale pink

Again this colour is for people who embrace their femininity. But being a more subtle shade this colour shows that you are very timid and don't want to stand out. You're not a complete wallflower but you have a soft side.

Red

This colour tells people you are vivacious. You are strong and want things to go your way - all the time. You are also a passionate character and it goes without saying that you are extremely outgoing. Parties are your favourite thing in the world and you need to be noticed. And you won't leave a do without speaking your mind.

Blue

Blue is the colour of authority. Put it on and people will know you're in charge. Blue also has that masculine edge and shows people you like to channel your inner boy.

Aqua

You're totally zen. You're calm and collected. You're so relaxed you could be in the middle of a bomb blast in Afghanistan and you'd be as phased as someone who was doing tai chi by the ocean at sunset.

Purple

Purple is the colour of royalty, so that makes you a princess. This colour also shows sophistication. You have spectacular manners, refined taste in fashion, food and fun, and you also carry a quiet confidence that is the envy of others.

Metallics

Your biggest wish in the world is to shine. If only you could be Beyonce, Christina or Madonna. People who wear metallics also love jewellery and you're usually so covered in it people often mistake you for a magpie. Your love for metallic colours stems from your desire to be rich. You love gold. You love money. And your life's desire is to own a palace. All in all - you're pretty bummed you weren't born a Queen.

Orange

People who wear orange are the most optimistic of the lot. They are bright and vibrant and nothing will get them down.

Brown or green

Brown or green coloured nail polishes are for the nature-loving lot. Energetic and spiritual, you love Mother Nature. You probably live in a tent.

French manicure

This nail colour is the epitome of glamour. No one can quite keep up with your style and za-zoom. You don't need to say too much as your natural elegance exudes enough already.
