Get one step ahead and give it a try before everyone else with our selection of the trendiest ways to wear cherry red nails in 2023!
What do Red Nails Symbolize?
The history of red nail polish dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt. Researchers have found that Cleopatra used to paint her nails in red as a symbol of high status, strength, and power. Inversely, women from the lower class would paint their nails in nude and pastel shades as a way to blend in.
Do Red Nails Make You More Attractive?
If you’re not someone who religiously scrolls through TikTok, you may have skipped past the so-called “Red Nail Theory”. What it claims is that if a woman has red nails she automatically becomes more attractive to men. Is this notion true? According to psychologists from the University of Rochester who have conducted scientific research on the color red, the theory is plausible. Although this is a subconscious process, they have concluded that men tend to find women who wear red more attractive and physically desirable.
For those of you who are curious to dig deeper into the psychology behind the “Red Nail Theory”, you can read Andrew J. Elliot and Daniela Niesta’s scientific research called “Romantic Red” by clicking on this link.
