The Nail Color You Should Wear This January, According to Astrology



You know what horoscopes are—but what about colorscopes? Color astrology is based on the belief that certain hues have the power to calm, energize, encourage, and ground you based on your unique astrology sign. And what better way to wear (and see) this color than to display it on your nails? To kick off 2016, we’re starting this new series with Rose Theodora, resident astrologer and color expert at Enamel Diction. With a degree from UCLA in neuroscience and art history, Theodora is an expert when it comes to color therapy and astrology. Each month, she’ll be sharing the power color you should be wearing on your nails, as well as the specific shades and finishes for your own sign. Enjoy!

Hi, Byrdie readers!

You may be wondering: Why mani-colorscopes? Because like people, colors have a personality. There is a subtle reasoning that takes place when we choose particular colors, and the colors we choose to wear speak volumes. Color astrology is personalizing color in accordance with your zodiac sign. If the color doesn't resonate with you, perhaps you exude the personality of the color so much that it's overkill. It may also be that you need to embrace more of your zodiac's personality traits and have been shying away from your natural colors. When reading your colorscope, it's best to read for your rising sign (based on your birth time), if you know it—if not, that's fine, too. The color of the month will help you align with the changing planets overhead each month (we call those monthly transits in astrology) so that you feel more harmonious.

Why nail polish? Wearing something once will not be effective, and realistically, who will wear the same clothes or colors every day? No one. Wearing a color for one to two weeks on your nails actually allows you to experience the subtle effects of the color.
