From Squoval to Stiletto, Your Nail Style Reveals Your Secret Horoscope Sign
Only moments after flopping down in the chair at a nail salon, you’re faced with some serious questions: Squared or rounded? Long or short? Decisions, decisions, ladies. Surprisingly, your answer may reveal more about you than you ever dreamed possible. Your abuela always warned you to never leave the house without makeup, but did she tell you that your choice of nail style could reveal the core of who you are?
We never want you to head out into the world uninformed, so we’ve crafted this handy little guide. That way you know what message you’re sending the world, and also what star sign your inner-self was born under.
Aries, Meet Adventurous and Outgoing Nails.
Lipstick style nails are an absolute must for the adventurous, outgoing Aries. Notice the unique slant at the tip? This style captures the essence of the playful Aries sign, with just enough edge to call it her own. Like the nails she dons, the Aries gal always bounces back after turmoil. Live dangerously, Aries!
Taurus, Sensual and Down-to-Earth Squoval
Few styles are more traditional and earthy than squoval nails, which provides the perfect complement to the sensual Taurean. Universally flattering, squoval nails have a flat tip with softened edges, an undeniable analogy for those born under this star sign. Just don’t break those talons, for there is a n unhampered tsunami lurking beneath the calm ocean trough. Embrace the calm, Taurus!
Gemini, the Fashion Diva Stiletto Claws
They may look fierce, but just like the forever-young Gemini, stiletto nails are vulnerable and prone to breakage. Terminally curious, our Gemini sisters can be delightfully mischievous, which plays well with this super-long and sharp nail style. It’s important to remember that those born under this sign, much like the nails she flashes, can be used as weapons, so tread lightly when it comes to conflict. We love your playful spirit, Gemini!
Cancer, Compassionate + Emotional Almond Nail
Life is in constant motion for those born under the Cancer sign because they live so much in their internal oceans of emotions. It’s befitting, then, that the traditional, rounded almond-style nails are oft associated with the Cancer gals. The nail wall is tapered to a round peak, just like a real almond, and has that ongoing circular motion – like an ocean. Snuggle up, Cancer!
Leo, Charismatic and Stylish
Hold on to your cafe con leche, girls, it’s about to get real. Nothing says ‘fun’ more than the positive-thinking Leo, just as nothing spells ‘playful’ quite like the flare nail style. As the name suggests, this delish type of nail flares up and out – just like the uber-confident Leo who prides herself on loyalty, good fortune, and charisma. Let’s hear it for our Leo sisters!
Virgo, Always of Service
You remember those medias, the ugly ones with lace plastered on, that you were only allowed to wear on special occasions? Or the plastic-covered furniture that could only be used when special guests stopped by? Chances are, those high standards were prescribed by the ever-giving Virgos. Which is why it can hardly be surprising that the nail style ruled by this sign is the short and simple round nails. Filed into a perfect semi-circle, this shape resonates well with the reliable sisters born under the Virgo sign. Time to raise a toast to the Virgos among us!
Libra, the Peace-Loving Gals We Love
Seeking grace and refinement, the Libras among us are perfectly suited for the mountain peak nail style. Just as you know to ask your elders for a bendicion when you arrive or leave the house, our Libran sisters prefer a style that conveys respect (while holding on to their ever-important good fashion sense). If you crave a look that is simultaneously functional and eye-catching, harmonious and a little…different… you may very well be born under the sign of the scales. Peace, Libra gals!
Scorpio, Passionate + Powerful + Unforgiving
Everyone knows — and loves — a Scorpio. Their reputation precedes them. And who could fault us for secretly envying the mysterious ways of these “oldest souls?” Yet beneath that veneer is a person who is exceptionally vulnerable to emotional rifts and turmoil. Which brings us to her fave nail style: the pointed tip. Not as tapered as the stiletto, pointed nails are generally pretty straight until the unorthodox tip, which is filed to a triangular shape. This style does well with acrylics, which makes sense given than the shape on a natural nail is apt to soften and break. Sound familiar, Scorpios? Stay wise, lady Scorpions!
Sagittarius, Seekers of Spontaneity and Optimism
It can be difficult trying to corral our free-spirited Sagittarius sisters. Just like your medicine cabinet always had Vicks VapoRub “just because,” those born under this star sign can always be counted on to have a ‘yes’ even when the response should be ‘no.’ Skinny dipping at midnight? Count her in! Cracking jokes at a funeral? That’s her. And just because you don’t follow society’s rules (overrated!) doesn’t mean you don’t care. Take your preferred nail style, for example. You embrace coffin nails not only for their beauty, but for their damn shocking name. Way to surprise us all, Sagittarius!
Capricorn, a Mountain Goat Among Us
Sure, it’d be easy to assume that the sign represented by a mountain goat would possess none other than the mountain style nails. Yet this would be incorrect. See, our Capricorn sisters are known for their conservative, cautious, and compassionate traits. Which is why the simple, classic oval nails are a perfect fit. With a more extreme curvature than round nails, this style has a slimming effect on all finger shapes. What makes it most appealing for the Capricorn lady, however, is that it’s designed to never crumble under pressure — just like the Capricorn herself. Steady and solid is your kind of beat, Capricorn!
Aquarius, the Trendsetters of Our Time
Those born under the sign of Aquarius not only march to a different drummer, they make up new music as they go along. This explains their emphasis on nail art as opposed to nail shape. You can find them sporting styles that reflect the season (painted bunnies for Easter, anyone?) and colors to match (red and green in December?). What you won’t find, however, is a lady who hasn’t given careful consideration to just how she wants her nails to appear. Now what cause can you go help, Aquarius?
Pisces, an Otherworldly Girl
What happens when you combine the Pisces’ inner quest to explore their “ivory tower syndrome” with an innate attraction toward fantasy? Let’s just say that can lead them into some most unusual and unlikely styles. Take their choice of nails, for example. Otherworldly. Alluring. Sensitive. All these are apt descriptions of the Pisces woman and her sense of style. Which is why it’s hard to nail down (pun intended) exactly what this girl is up to. Jewels, polka dots, and fragmented colors are only a few of the tricks up this gal’s glove. Way to explore your creativity, Pisces!
