Nail polish is a way to express yourself. Your favorite polish hue sends a message to the world about what type of person you are. Barbie pink nails, like Audrina Patridge's, are for light-hearted, optimistic girls--even if you can't drive the Barbie dream car, why not rep the dream manicure?
Extravagant gem-toned nails in deep aubergine, midnight blue and burgundy convey a baroque-loving, eclectic girl that should have been born into royalty. Hey Lea Michele, perhaps you can shoot for Prince Harry now that Wills is off the market?
Glittery nails are reserved for true glamour girls like Katy Perry--even if real diamonds are out of the question, nails can still look decadent enough to break the bank. Try encrusting your digits with pav Swarovski crystals to get the right reflection!
If you have neon-bright nails, you are an energetic and confident type of girl who is not afraid of the spotlight. Neon nails like AnnaLynne McCord's highlighter yellow tips look best when worn on short tailored fingernails, or on toes with strappy sandals.
Moody dark shades of grey, deep midnight blue and black reflect a daring, "don't mess with me" femme fatale. They're best when worn with a little length and a sharp almond shape, as demonstrated by the stunning Blake Lively here.
