While it’s definitely not crucial to use astrology as inspiration or your manicure, it can add an extra layer of fun — and we have a ton of ideas for your next at-home polish job or for you to take to your nail tech. Each one of the 12 signs of the zodiac have different qualities, many of which can be aesthetically communicated. For instance, Cancer is an emotional water sign ruled by the moon, so it’s associated with shimmery silvers. Aries is a fire sign ruled by warrior Mars, so they can pull off a bold red like nobody’s business.
Just like your zodiac sign, your manicure also says a lot about who you are! Whether you tend to stick to an infinitely versatile nude hue or prefer a punchy pop of color and glitter embellishments, there is a color for you. In fact, the nail polish shades we find ourselves continually attracted to may actually be rooted in the cosmos, according to some astrologers.
