How to choose the right nail polish color
Manicure can say a lot about your personality and psychological state. Therefore, I propose to take a look at it from a new angle and talk about how the choice of nail polish color can affect your mood.
Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt uncomfortable there? Most likely, the color scheme of the interior is to blame. Have you ever felt particularly happy just by wearing your favorite piece of color? If so, then my article today will be most welcome for you! :)
Research shows that colors have a direct impact on your mood, behavior, and even stress levels. Colors have different wavelengths and frequencies that affect specific parts of your brain. This explains why colors are also used as therapy to treat certain physical and mental ailments.
Color therapy, also known as chromotherapy, uses color to cultivate the energy in our body. This is a popular therapy that even the ancient civilizations of Egypt, India and China resorted to. The influence of color is also widely used in the art of Feng Shui.
When it comes to choosing a nail polish color, most often we think about what colors are popular this season, or best match our skin tone. But in today's article, I propose to consider choosing a nail polish color that can affect your mood.
It seems to me that there is something extremely therapeutic even in a simple painting of nails, since the process itself is soothing, and admiring a fresh manicure (if it is of high quality, of course :) ) definitely causes positive emotions. And if you add the right color to all this, then it can really make a big difference to our psychological state.
Colors can create feelings of loneliness, happiness, anxiety, inspiration and more. The emotional impact of color on each person is determined by their past experience, culture and more. Today I will tell you what color of varnish is better to choose, depending on your emotional state. :)
If you have a little stress
Has a loved one pissed you off? Or perhaps the workflow has gone berserk? Then it's time to paint your nails blue. Psychologically, blue is the opposite of red - it lowers blood pressure. It is not for nothing that, looking at the sky or the sea, we can feel peace. The color blue encourages calmness, and in the process of painting your nails, your worries will be a thing of the past.
If you feel apathy
We all have those days when we feel lethargic and just irritated. In that case, next time, try pampering yourself with a green manicure. Green polish will help improve your mood, renew your vitality, and help calm your mind. Green is associated with the beauty of nature, it is a refreshing and rejuvenating shade.
If you are depressed
Heaviness in the soul is not good at all, so if you feel like you feel sorry for yourself, then it's time to make some “sunny” adjustments to your image. Yellow color symbolizes energy, inspiration and happiness. Yellow nail polish - bright or pastel - will help you feel more optimistic and joyful, without too much nervousness.
If you get angry
If you are filled with feelings of anger or resentment, then instead of trying to burn everything around, just get out your favorite pink nail polish. :) This shade is able to evoke feelings of love, compassion, sincerity, and most importantly, forgiveness.
If you are nervous or insecure
Red is considered to be the color of love and fiery passion, but it is also a color that will help you accumulate inner strength and give courage and confidence when it is needed (for example, for an important job interview). Plus, red nails are classic and never go out of style. :)
While nail polish color is more of an accessory to our outfit, no matter what the mood, the next time you're feeling a little down or angry, take a look at my tips. And maybe a bright manicure is all you need to feel better. :)
