Do you ever stop and think about what your polish shade means before painting your nails? Probably not, but you may be sending off certain signals and vibes via your manicure without even knowing it. Nail polish is the grownup girl’s version of a mood ring: it says a lot about how you feel. If you’re constantly sporting the ring finger manicure in front of your boyfriend, you’re more than likely hinting that you want a big fat rock on your finger. Or perhaps you’re painting your nails with a pastel shade named after a sweet treat because you’re craving a cupcake. Who knows, maybe you’re going for jet black because you’re secretly in the mood for winter (or wish you were a goth in high school). Check out the slideshow above for a a manicure guide and what each color could be saying about you.
