Choosing Your Nail Color By Your Sun Sign
As spring gets underway and the days are getting longer and warmer, a manicure and pedicure is a good way to celebrate this fresh start to the new astrological year. I typically love to go super dark with my nail color choices during the fall and winter months but prefer pale or very neutral shades during the spring and summer months. But, I thought it would be fun to search for the perfect nail color for my sun sign as I get ready for spring break.
In astrology, your sun sign is the sign most people know of. It is the sign that you read about in your daily horoscope. It’s where you shine, who you are striving to be, and your basic personality. (Believe me…we are so much more than our Sun sign. Way more complicated). Most women resonate more with their Moon sign (I know I do) since it’s your emotional self and the way you feel most at home. But, not everyone knows their Moon sign, so we’ll have some fun with what each of the signs means and how to choose a nail color to go along with that.
Aries are the bold, fiery, action takers of the zodiac. They are brave, driven, and very active. That being said, their perfect nail color would be a bold shade of orange, a cobalt blue, or even a vibrant yellow.
Those who have the sun in Taurus are sensual, reliable, and grounded. Their earthy stability looks best when wearing a nail color that is more conservative. Pink, pale green, or light blue would suit their sensual self.
Geminis are naturally outgoing, intelligent, and curious. They have ease with communication and like to share their curiosity with the world. Perfect nail color for those with a sun in Gemini would be an electric shade of blue, a bright yellow, or intense pink to highlight their quick minds and exuberant personalities.
Cancers are the sensitive, nurturing, and introverted ones of the zodiac. They shine best when caring and nurturing others and by showing their innate sensitivity to others. Being a water sign, their perfect nail color would be like the shade of the sea. Aqua, Teal, or a deep mystical green.
Leos are the entertaining, creative, and exuberant ones of the zodiac. They are creative, warm, expressive, outgoing, and sociable. Therefore wearing a warm shade of orangey-yellow, like the color of sunflower or sunset would be a perfect match.
Virgos are the most detailed, focused, and grounded of the zodiac. Efficient, detail-oriented, and organized are their traits. Being an earth sign, Virgos look best when wearing earth tones like taupes, tans, or inky blues.
Libras are the diplomats of the zodiac. Always trying to achieve balance and fairness. They strive for beauty and order in everything. They are harmonious, calm, and tactful. Choosing a pale pink or coral nail color would balance out whatever they are wearing.
Scorpios are very deep, passionate, and intense. They can be very transformational, secretive, and powerful. So, wearing a deep red, maroon, or brownish shade (if even on their toes) would suit their powerful self.
Sagittarians are the philosophers of the zodiac. They have a “guru-ness” about them. They are worldly, wise, and love to travel and explore. Wearing a shade of deep, royal purple or blue would suit this wandering visionary.
Capricorns are the most hard-working and ambitious sign of the zodiac. They strive to be the master of whatever they set out to do or achieve. Their disciplined nature would look best in an earthy bronze, a no-nonsense taupe, or even an inky blue.
Aquarians are the innovators and humanitarians of the zodiac. They are the change-makers and revolutionaries of the zodiac. Wearing a shimmery, purplish-blue or electric green would suit them much easier than most other signs.
Pisceans are the mystical, creative creatures of the zodiac. They can be very compassionate and self-sacrificing while maintaining a creative and imaginative aura. Wearing soft lavender or watery blue suits their mystical water sign.
Choosing a nail color can sometimes be made simpler by knowing who you are. Especially if you’re a Libra and have a hard time making decisions. Haha! We all have an energetic frequency of what feels right to us. If you know your Moon Sign, look at those colors because they may suit you even more. Your Moon Sign is your emotional security and what just feels right to you. So if you looked at your Sun sign colors and they didn’t jive, look at your Moon Sign colors to see if it feels more right for you.
