Match your nail colour to your personality

From muted beige to poppy orange, there’s one for you

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / May 25 2017

You’re addicted to: Hitting the great outdoors

Your match: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Rhythm & Blue

Why: From rock climbing to deep-sea diving, you’re someone that loves to push the boundaries and test your own limits. And you’re not afraid to make a statement as well, which is why a bright blue shade is the perfect pick for you. Keep nail lengths short and manicured for this colour - it’ll make the most impact.

You’re addicted to: Watching (and re-watching) reality TV

Your match: Faby Nail Polish in Desert Rose

Why: Your ideal Saturday night plans involve a dinner date with your Foxtel IQ, jampacked with recordings to catch up on such as KUWTK, Real Housewives, and The Bachelor... just to name a few. The hottest shade to hit Hollywood of late? A warm, dark beige shade that’s plain enough to be a classic neutral and rosy enough to add warmth to lighter skintones. It’s got our tick of approval.

You’re addicted to: Shopping for homewares

Your match: Mecca Cosmetica Artistry Nail Polish in Volumnia

Why: Pottery Barn is your spirit home, and you’re there every second weekend to shop up a storm. Plus, your Pinterest is filled with “dream home” boards, because marble and rose gold anything is life. Follow the copper trend that’s taken over the world and introduce this sparkly shade to your digits.

You’re addicted to: Making cocktails for your guests

Your match: Nails Inc Nail Lacquer in Nail Jewellery

Why: You haven’t met a liqueur you didn’t like, and you’ve always got a bottle of Bollinger in your fridge ready to entertain at the drop of a hat. To suit your bubbly personality, go for a glittery polish that’ll put you in the mood for a few more tipples… and perhaps a night out on the town.

You’re addicted to: Baking sweet treats

Your match: Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire in Pink Ballerinas

Why: Meringues? Too easy. Molten lava brownies? With your eyes closed. It’s clear to us that you’re pretty obsessed with creating a cake for any occasion. Be reminded of all things yummy even when you’re not in the kitchen with a creamy vanilla shade that looks amazing on any skintone. We think a squoval shape (squared, with rounded edges) looks best with this colour.

You’re addicted to: Hitting up karaoke

Your match: Revlon Parfumerie Nail Enamel in Orange Blossom

Why: You’re loud and love to be heard, especially when you’re at karaoke on a Friday night. And of course, they don’t call you K-Pop Queen for no reason. Get your spirit fingers on with a bright nail colour that is sure to turn heads - even when the lights are down.
