Color psychology is the idea that colors can affect your mood and behavior. Ancient Egyptians utilized “color cures,” but it wasn’t until about two hundred years ago that it became an accepted field of study.
But you probably don’t need Sir Isaac Newton or Carl Jung to tell you that different colors make you feel different things. Isn’t that why everyone has a favorite color? You have one that makes you feel happy, calm, or bold — maybe even a color that makes you feel the opposite.
Liberation Nails has bright, vibrant colors as well as muted nudes and pastels, so we can keep everyone in our non-toxic nail squad happy. So, let's explore how nail color can affect your mood based on the different colors.
Which nail color reflects your desired mood? How can nail color affect your mood?
Do you want to feel calm? Maybe powerful? Actual change comes from within, but a change in nail color can help get you started.
Red = Passionate
If you want to feel bold, dangerous, and flirtatious, the London Image Institute recommends red. The experts at LII are careful to mention that a little goes a long way when it comes to this bold color choice. What better place to add that pop of color than on your nails?
Yellow = Energized
Ditch the negativity and take the first step to feeling joyful and optimistic by painting your nails bright, sunshiny yellow. Oberlo points out that popular brands like IKEA and Ferrari use yellow in their logos. After all, what could create a summertime feeling better than a fast car or fresh home décor?
Green = Connected
Green can help you feel more connected to the natural world. Of course, the color sometimes evokes feelings of jealousy, so if you’re trying to get over an ex, you might want to opt for something else. The website ColorPsychology.org describes green as promoting healing and relaxation. After all, green spaces are usually where we find all our basic necessities: food, water, and shelter.
Blue = Serene
If you need calm, soothing energy in your life, then choose a light blue nail color. Very Well Mind points out that people are more productive when working in painted blue rooms. The color blue can invoke a calming, relaxing feeling, and instill a sense of reliability. The next time you need some help staying calm and focused, paint your nails a shade of blue and reap the benefits.
Purple = Creative
There is more than one way to be bold, and if you need an extra push to bring out your creative side, purple is an excellent choice. Light purple can also have a calming effect similar to light blue. Inspiration is Purple describes the color as a true mix of red and blue: powerful and calming, allowing creativity to flow.
Liberation Nails has one shade of purple nail polish: the bold and beautiful 4th Dimension.
