You enjoy a nice manicure just like the next chica, but hardly have time to hit up the salon (like me) and kind of suck at polishing your own nails. You get them done when you get a chance, but hair, brows, and makeup range higher up in your beauty priority list.

A manicure for you means three coats of deep red polish. You’re a classic lady at heart and rarely like to experiment with other styles or colors. Medium or long length nails filed in a square shape is what you’re normally found rocking. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

You LOVE having painted nails and tend to do them yourself. But once they start chipping, you kind of let the polish come off naturally on its own, rather than removing it yourself and re-polishing. Who has the time to bother?

You only do light pinks, nudes, and old school French manicures no matter how 90s they may seem. And only on very special occasions will you consider slapping on a red nail polish. Oh and you still enjoy matching your shoes to your purse too.

There is nothing--absolutely nothing--basic about you or your style. Your mani is not only on point, but it's so complex, it's beautiful. Your purse is probably worth more than my couch, but that's just the price you pay to look and feel perfect.

Nothing stands between you and your Palo Santo and your sage smudge stick is always at the ready--you never know when you'll have to clear some bad jujus from the house!

Your nails need to be on point, but no one's got 45 minutes to just sit there and let that nail polish dry! That's why gel is it. It comes in a ton of colors--from daring to the most demure--and it dries in seconds flat, so you can fly our of that nail salon and continue conquering the world.

Your nails are as wild and eclectic as you are! You don't care that they're all different shades--no, in fact, this is how you always wear them and anything else would be strange for you. The hair is pink, sometimes blue, but always very chic!

When it comes to style, you're very indecisive, but that's because so many things look amazing on you! Still, it doesn't help that faced with a wall full of possible nail polish colors, it takes you an hour to decide. Then you opt to wear both your favorite shades at once. Same with your sartorial choices. When faced with demure vs. daring, you go for both--and you rock them together so well!
