Black nail polish isn’t just for teens going through a goth/emo phase, it’s actually the colour a lot of creative people wear! Dark shades like black mean you have an artistic side, a creative flair whether you’re a painter, poet, chef, or sculptor. Even if you don’t think you’re particularly artistic, if you’re drawn to black nail polish it may mean you have a very creative and lateral mind!

Although you have a lot of energy, you’re also down-to-earth. You are always ready to be a shoulder to cry on and bring a smile to people’s faces and you’re always ready to go on an adventure. Neon green nail polish means you’re energetic and excited. Like other neon colours, lime green is very bright and bold but because green also is known to be a calm colour, it’s less in-your-face than a neon pink or neon orange.

Which Colour Do You Love?

Today I am wearing a pearled coral. So I should feel daring and impulsive. Not too far from the truth I suppose BUT I only picked it because I have run out of my usual gold/bronze colour. I don’t know what a gold/bronze wearers personality traits are. Maybe gold/bronze wearers are forgetful and can’t be arsed because I know I forgot to go get a new polish at weekend and to be honest I can’t be bothered to go get one this week. Sod it.

Which colour do you usually wear? Does it match your personality? Let me know in the comments below!
