Show off your unique self with nails customized by astrology + zodiac sign.
You look down at your nails and cringe. Maybe the previous set you had has finally seen its last run, or you don’t normally get your nails done and want to try something new. It’s time to treat yourself!
Figuring out the perfect look for our nails is no easy feat. We might start out by simply researching power colors that we like or colors that we think would complement our busy lives. Then, of course, we consider things like length and shape.
Finally, by the time we get to pick out a nail design, we have a hundred different options and could easily choose them all. The insanity of it all.
Using our zodiac signs, we can get break it down and make life way easier in search of the perfect set of nails. We want something that represents us, because we are all unique, with different astrological personality traits and interests.
These qualities are super helpful when figuring out the nail design and power color to choose from. If you’re a strong and powerful Aries, flowers and hearts aren’t going to show off that strength.
Choosing a nail design is one thing, but what about the ideal color? In this day and age, confidence is key, and it’s important that we try to give ourselves that confidence boost, especially for those days when we need it just a little more. Zodiac signs each have a specific power color — or in some cases, several. A power color is meant to bring out the best in you.
It provides a positive energy that complements who you are as a person. It’s a great way to access your confidence to take on the world. However, it would probably get mundane for a Taurus to wear green every day, and a Leo sporting gold all the time would be too extreme. If you use your power color on your nails though, you’ll still be able to have it with you but in a much more accessible way.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Your power color is red.
There’s a good chance you’re probably already sporting some fabulous red lipstick, so why not add some red nails too? Because you’re competitive and passionate, you want to add something that will make a red nail set even more dynamic. The blended-in black tips at the top of the nail are the perfect way to show your strength, and they even give you that extra edge as well.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Your power color is green.
Green can help emphasize your patience and reliability as a Taurus. You are also very practical, so a more-simple design would be great for you. Something flashy or extreme is definitely not your thing, so choose a subtle jewel accent on your ring finger forthe perfect addition to your nail set.

This look has darker tones at the base of the nail that blends into the white as you go up.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Your power color is gold.
