You know how they say you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their shoes? Well we think there also seems to be some sort of spooky correlation between the hues you choose for your digits and how you shop. Seriously, it’s uncanny! Suss out below what message your mani is sending to the world and see if you agree.
GREY – Waity Katie
You’re not the type to jump at the hint of a new trend. You’d rather bide your time and make sure you really, truly like something before you take the plunge. And there’s nothing wrong with that (we bet you don’t have a wardrobe full of barely worn “what was I thinking” clothes either do you). Although it’s also good to get a little brave sometimes, especially with something as low risk as nail polish. Go on, we dare you!

YELLOW – The Early Adopter
This shade only really popped onto the radar a few days ago, but yours is looking a little chipped already. You’re always ahead of the trends, often your friends will be wearing your ‘so last season’ wardrobe six months after you. But beware, some trends need to left up to the professionals *cough* Lady GaGa.

RED – Fan of the classics
You get your advice from the old Hollywood classics. Only the best of the best for you, which means you’re quite the saver. Especially for that totally worth it Chanel tote that goes perfectly with those chic red nails of yours. Just remember, you can get a little more out of those cheaper imitations (like a matching wallet and pumps!), for the same price. Break that expensive habit!

GREEN – The Style Stalker
You saw this shade on Rhianna’s digits and rushed to the shops didn’t you? It’s ok, we won’t tell. There’s nothing wrong with coveting a bit of celeb style. Just make sure you keep check on your non-celeb budget, keeping up with the Kardashian’s in the nail polish stakes is one thing… but unless you also aim to make $17million in royalties from your wedding, maybe give the matching bag collection a miss.

MULTICOLOURS – Daydream Believer.
You’re a daydreamer at heart, and lucky for you the 70’s and colour are back in! This season is going to do wonders for your wardrobe, but maybe not so much for your wallet. So to make a little extra cash for those vintage pieces you’re dying to get your little paws on, maybe sell some of those clothes you no longer wear. If you can bare it that is.
