About This Quiz

You have been having a horrible work week, and even though you prepared yourself for it, you didn't realize it was going to be as bad as it got. However, you did add a treat to your week, a trip to your place of choice for a manicure. When you take your first steps into the spa, your mind instantly falls into its relaxed state, and your eyes swim over all of the different nail colors that line the walls. What color should you get? 

Maybe you need a little boost of confidence before heading out for a night out on the town with friends. If that's the case, there is no other color to use than a red, the brighter the shade, the better. If you're working on a wedding day-ready look, one nail color you should look into using is either a blush or nude shade to create a soft look. Even if these occasions and color choices make sense to you, you may not be able to pull either of these colors off. Why? In some instances, it could be your personality. 

Either way, we're looking to figure out what color just won't work for you. Why don't we see if we can give you some insight while your latest manicure dries?
