The Manicure You Should Get This Week, According to Astrology

Mary Peffer

Each week, Enamel Diction, a nail salon in Hollywood, develops a weekly “colorscope,” a.k.a. a nail design the salon deems appropriate for all astrological signs in order to best navigate the upcoming seven days. (We know, we know, #eyeroll, but stay with us, if only for the art!)

Think what you will about the zodiac’s connection with our nail color, this week, we crushed hard on the salon's creation, meaning or not: a minimalist slim white grid painted over a nude nail. According to the salon’s resident astrologist, Rose Theodora, “the lines represent statements of 'fact' (Virgo), while the spaces represent a person’s feelings or thoughts about that statement. The vertical lines suggest connection to faith. It is the 'as above, so below' element of the image. The horizontal lines suggest a connection to specific aspects the material world, like being fastidious, and having a plan.”

Color us more than a little confused, but we still want to request this design. 

While the nails looks cool to us, the salon insists it was specifically selected “because the planets Mercury and Jupiter enter Virgo this week. This look keeps you on the strait and narrow, and gifts you with discernment!” The colors mean something, too: White is said to represent purity and clarity, while nude represents simplicity. Hmm, what do you think of all this? Do you believe in colorstrology? Does it even matter, so long as you like the look of it? Sound off below!
