Nail Astrology /
My indecisiveness is legendary. As much as I’ve always been a risk taker not afraid to pick up my stuff and move across the country in the blink of an eye (may have done than a couple of times…) I am useless when it comes to pick up a nail polish color. I know, it’s the little things, the little choices we take on a daily basis that create stress, unnecessarily.
I’ve been like that since I was a little girl, I could never choose between the blue dress and the pink dress. To this day, I can’t commit to something so silly even if my life depended on it. Thankfully those are very superficial choices to make in ones life, yet somehow I tend to give them way more importance than they actually have. And I know I am not the only one.
Hence this blog post today.
I have painted my nails for as long as I can remember. I cannot stand chipped nails, wether it be on myself or on others. Get it together girl, nails shape the first impression another person will have on the way you take care of yourself. Your mani pedi reflect your sense of hygiene, self worth and sense of style. Oh yes I am going that far. It’s like if a guy has a dirty car… what else is dirty?
I used to change colors every single time I would go get my nails done and the decision making process of which color to go for would be a total waste of my time and energy. I have since then realized that what I really liked was the more natural look, and since I wear my nails long, going for a natural sheer hue is just a better fit.
Then, while googling away, I found some research from Rose Theodora, astrologer and color expert at the Enamel Diction salon in LA, and it rocked my world so here I am, sharing it with you, because sharing is caring and this might save you a ton of time each and every time you do your nails or have them done.
This lovely Rose Theodora linked our astrological sign to the kind of hue we should/could wear on our nails. Now it obviously doesn’t have to be taken literally, if this research indicates you should go for a color you don’t like, just drop it and go for what you like instead. Always go for what you like. Use this as an inspirational guide.
I am really enjoying having my signature nail color, the way I have my nails done is very much a reflection of my personal style and of how I want to express myself. Natural sheer pink, long almond shaped. And on my feet I usually go for a white or a sheer pink. My kind of boho glam 😉
And this is when it becomes interesting and Rose’s predictions come really on point. I am a scorpio. Yes, I know, but we’re not that bad, we’re extremely sensitive people. Don’t judge a book by its reputation… She recommends for scorpios to wear white. Now when you think of a scorpio, red is probably what you would expect but she says, and I love that: “They might cringe when you tell them to wear white, but they could benefit from this light and airy color. Scorpio is naturally skeptical and secretive, so wearing a color like white helps them to trust more”. And it’s less in your face.
By toning the color down, we become less scary to approach lol. Same goes for the Leo show-girls.
I love her approach of using color to help improve our mood. We have our hands in front of us all day long and color has a sure impact on our energy. Think of this as chromatherapy. You can also use this for your clothes and accessories. White is personally my favorite color to wear in general and it now makes sense 😉
Check out your matching color and tell me what you think in the comments below!
1. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
Lilac: “Aries is a quick and energetic sign. They usually opt for a color to match their high-energy personality, but what they could really benefit from would be a cooler color, like lilac. Aries get bored easily, so they still need something light and edgy but more soothing, a color that helps them to recharge and feel more content”.
2. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
Orange: “Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus and the love all things green (natural and material), and feminine (pink). But what they could really use is a little more spontaneity, to follow their gut, and to cultivate more resilience, orange does the trick!”
3. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
Baby blue: “Gemini is lively and mentally astute, always thinking about a million things and analyzing them to the point that they are capable of not realizing how they really feel. Baby blue helps them feel more and think less. They’ll love this color, but they don’t know why. That’s because it allows them to shut off their brain”.
4. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
Bright red: “Cancers are quite the opposite of Gemini and feel so deeply that they can get stuck in an emotional limbo, forgetting to apply logic. Cancers also love to take care of everyone else before they take care of themselves, which can make them feel a little unloved at times. Wearing a bright red helps them to feel more confident, to act more on impulse, and to be less fearful of living the life they truly desire”.
5. LEO (JULY 23-AUGUST 22)
Nude: “Leos aren’t afraid to stand out, yet sometimes they come across as self-involved and egotistical. A Leo will stand out no matter what, so they could really do themselves a favor by wearing a beautiful creamy nude color. Others will find them more inviting and less intimidating, and in the end, Leos will seek the connection that they were looking for in the first place”.
6. VIRGO (AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22)
Bright red: “Virgos are incredibly orderly and have immense self control, but they tend to hide their more sensual and imaginative side. They, like Gemini, are ruled by the planet Mercury, so they are also super heady and are prone to worry. Wearing a bright red gets them out of their head and into their hearts. Red fuels their surprised passion”.
7. LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 22)
Dark blue: “Libra, an air sign, weighs everything. They could really benefit from wearing a dark blue, almost black, to help them get more in touch with their feelings and think less about what others think. Dark blue helps them assert themselves without feeling guilty”.
8. SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23-NOVEMBER 21)
White: “They might cringe when you tell them to wear white, but they could benefit from this light and airy color. Scorpio is naturally skeptical and secretive, so wearing a color like white helps them to trust more”.
9. SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21)
Deep emerald green: “Sagittarius loves flashy and bold, and typically dark colors to match their adventurous and truth-seeking self. Wearing a deep green could really help them feel more grounded and content with where they’re at, and less concerned with where they are going”.
10. CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19)
Gold: “Capricorn is a very calculative and practical sign. It’s either white or black for this no-BS gal. Wearing gold could really help them to loosen up and to trust in the Universe. Besides, the color gold still represents currency, which is completely in alignment for this status-seeking sign”.
11. AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18)
Bright blue: ” Aquarius loves all things black, think Wednesday from the Adams Family. They feel different because they are different. Wearing a bright and vibrant blue allows them to feel comfortable sharing their genius insights and encourages group consciousness even more”.
12. PISCES (FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20)
Charcoal grey with a shimmer: ” Pisces are in a world of their very own, so they are attracted to colors and patterns that no one else has the guts to wear ; like floral prints, or a turquoise-lavender frayed, flowing skirt that sparkles just enough to reflect their wild imagination. Wearing a dark charcoal grey that shimmers (only slightly in the right angle) would help to ground them immensely, and inspire a more practical approach”.
