Nails of the Zodiac

Let’s talk about better living! Our interactive family corner aims to expand our lifestyle horizons with practical little pearls of wisdom from the editor and input from our readers

Deciding on a nail polish is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Just as we decide on wearing a bold or a neutral lipstick, the colours we choose to paint our nails also reflect our mood.

Astrologists believe that these colours might be written in the stars and the shades we are drawn to are actually dictated by our astrological sign and have the ability to counteract anything from a bad mood to more general anxiety.

Here are some nail varnish colour recommendations for every sign of the Zodiac based on what is written in the stars:

Midnight shimmer is great for Aries, who is easily bored. This deep blue promotes a strong focus, so you stay on track, while the reflective finish spurs mental stimulation for the task at hand.

Your colour is forest green, which is your key for clear-headedness and stability. Green can also help you stay balanced when it’s time to be strategic.

Pewter is your power polish. Neither black nor white, this shade of grey is your colour for the new year.

Your power polish is pearl. Cancers, who are renowned for collecting things, will benefit from this purifying white colour in the coming year.

Rose gold is your colour. Being a Leo means you have a bold personality that loves gold. If you couple that with rose, which encourages positivity and open-mindedness, you’ll have the perfect shade for fostering creativity.

Your polish power is dusty rose. Equal parts sensual and sensible, the pink undertones mirror your romantic and playful mood, while the beige base is grounding.

Holographic pink is your shade. Pink promotes good communication and light-heartedness, while an iridescent finish screams fun. This shade is perfect for holiday gatherings.

Your polish is rich and authoritative oxblood. This deep red colour supports your feelings of poise, power, and control.

Bright red cherry is your power shade. This is known to boost self-esteem and self-worth and can put you in a self-indulgent state of mind. Let it remind you to stop, drop, and relax.

Inspired by the sea, aquatic colours like deep teal, which can be ideal for mellowing out and self-reflection. It also has healing powers and can even lower blood pressure.

Your power polish is eggplant. This energising purple keeps your social-butterfly status soaring, while the dark tone embraces your mysterious side.

Metallic berry is your colour. The red base feels commanding, and the sparkles add the fun that is essential in helping you stay engaged in your work.
