What your signature manicure shade says about your personality

by

When you're faced with a whole wall of colours at your local nail salon, and finally pick the shade you want, you're not just making a style choice – you're making a personal statement. 

As it turns out. the hue you go for represents your personality, without you even knowing it. 

Essie's celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders spoke to Cosmopolitan and she gave us a complete polish personality breakdown:

Reds

"A crimson manicure is classic and timeless, and wearing a scarlet mani means you're elegant and effortlessly chic," said Michelle. 

 

Blacks

"Equal parts edgy and complex, a black mani exudes confidence. Consider it a #GirlBoss must."

 

Neons

"Because neon lacquer is so bright and bold, there's no denying it will get you noticed. If you're wearing it, chances are you're outgoing and adventurous," Michelle explained.

 

Whites

"Wearing an of-the-moment white manicure adds a youthful and modern element to your look. On your nails, it signals that you're trendy and cool."

 

Blues

"With so many varying depths, blue is super-versatile and experimental, and suggests that you're creative and forward-thinking."

 

Nudes

"Barely there nudes are perfect for every occasion and the colour is super-forgiving when it comes to DIY applications. A nude mani reads low-maintence and unfussy."

 

Pinks

"If your go-to hue is pink, you're fun, flirty, ultra-feminine, and love being a girly-girl," said Michelle.
