Nail psychology- what do your nails say about you?

We all have certain clients that always opt for a classic red or a sophisticated french manicure. It’s time to find out the psychology behind the nails, what do your nails say about you? 

The biters

According to Dr. Kieron O’Connor, professor of psychiatry at The University of Montreal, nail biters are likely to be perfectionists who find it hard to relax. These clients need a good pamper, suggest the BeautyPro Hand therapy mask for whilst you are making their nails look beautiful to restore moisture and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Black

Black nail polish was previously related to Goth and Punk culture, but more recently, black polish has become more mainstream. The client who opts for black is cool, without needing to follow trends, individual and strong.

Blue

Light blue tones tend to mean your client is cool and calm, someone friends can rely upon. Darker tones, like a midnight blue can be an exciting alternative to a classic, think LBD with a twist.
