Have you ever wondered if there was something more to your nail polish than just a pretty color?
According to Rose Theodora, resident astrologer of the L.A.-based nail salon Enamel Diction, there is a lot to be said about your preference in polish, and which hue you should be painting on your fingers in order to align fortuitously with the stars.
New Color-Astrology Polish wall in full effect! Come visit us! @rosetheodora customized your zodiac colors specific to your sign. “The colors that you are attracted to say a lot about where you are in your life.” – #rosetheodora Color Tip: Libra’s love gray, which may be the reason they’re so indecisive. To be more decisive, Libra’s should wear red, or to make decisions based more on intuition-a dark blue. #colorastrology#libra
“Certain signs are drawn to certain colors,” Theodora told Teen Vogue.
Theodora leads customers to the polish wall at the salon to select a color that’s organized by each astrological sign. While coy Capricorns are seen best shining in gold, confident Cancers appear bold and upbeat in red.
Want to know which color range fits your sign best? Lucky for us, Theodora shared her colorstrology advice with The Coveteur so we don’t have to consult the stars ourselves.
ARIES MARCH 21 – APRIL 19
Color: 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.”
TAURUS APRIL 20 – MAY 20
Color: Orange. “Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus and they love all things green (natural & 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!”
GEMINI MAY 21 – JUNE 21
Color: 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.”
CANCER JUNE 22 – JULY 22
Color: 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.”
LEO JULY 23 – AUGUST 22
Color: Nude. “Leos aren’t afraid to stand out, yet sometimes they come across 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.”
VIRGO AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22
Color: Bright Red. “Virgos are incredibly orderly and have immense self control, but they tend to hide their more sensual and imaginative side. The, 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 suppressed passion.”
LIBRA SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22
Color: 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 to think less about what others think. Dark blue helps them assert themselves without feeling guilty.”
SCORPIO OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21
Color: White. “They might cringe when you tell them to wear white, but they could seriously benefit from this light and airy color. Scorpio is naturally skeptical and secretive, so wearing a color like white helps them to trust more.”
SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21
Color: 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.”
CAPRICORN DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19
Color: 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.”
ACQUARIUS JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18
Color: 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.”
PISCES FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20
Color: Charcoal gray with 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 gray that shimmers (only slightly in the right angle) would help to ground them immensely, and inspire a more practical approach.”
