The Mani-Pedi Combo You Need This Summer, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
These nail colors will speak to your celestial sensibilities.
If you've been looking at your nails lately and feeling incredibly "meh" about the shade of polish you quickly slap on for the summer months, it's time for a change. But instead of browsing the manicure aisle at your local drugstore in search of something that speaks to you, why not look to the stars for some guidance? According to astrologer Lisa Stardust, each of the 12 zodiac signs has a signature color that they're drawn to because it brings them luck or expresses their nature. Aries, for example, is obsessed with red since it shows off their fiery vibes, while Cancer will want a more subdued shade of lilac to flaunt on their tootsies.
To help you get more celestial with the mani-pedi combo you pick this season, we've compiled a list of nail polish colors you'll love, based on your zodiac sign.
