What does it mean when people wear a different color nail polish on their ring finger?
I'm starting to see this a lot. People will wear a brightly colored nail polish on their ring finger. It's usually a deep color like black, super red, or hot pink. Does the choice of color have a meaning? Does the choice of finger have a meaning? Is it a fashion statement? A fad? What do you think?
I believe someone wearing a different colored nail polish on their ring finger is meant to be a fashion statement, and I do not think there is significance in the color choice, besides which color matches best with their outfit or with the rest of their nails.
Although, I would not be surprised if some women specifically did it to draw attention to that finger. Maybe they wear a ring representing that they are taken/engaged/married and want people to be aware, or are single and are attempting to draw the eyes of men to that finger to show them that they are available for courting.
Nope, no specific reason (at least not generally). I've done it a few times, I just think it looks neat. It's more visually pleasing to have a standout colour on the ring finger than the others.
I have seen this as well, I don't think it specifically means anything, maybe the person is bored with having their nails all painted the same color, your guess is as good as mine.
I too thought it meant nothing in particular until I read an article about it in our local newspaper and then heard a report about it on our news station. Apparently it is a new trend to attract the attention of Conspiracy Theorists when out and about...
Oh my gosh, something that looks so cool is being used for such an ominous statement. Oh well, I guess I had better stick to one color for all of my nails. I wouldn't want to call attention to myself and be arrested for conspiracy.
Haha, you might meet some interesting people, though...
I think that the vast majority of people probably don't connect the two.
I think that it means they are probably looking for someone.
I believe it is just meant to give a contrast to the nail art.Sometimes I wear different nail art on ring finger nail and thumb, and sometimes, on both middle finger nails....
It just means they wanted to spice up their nails in a way that's not in your face like crystals would. It's called an accent nail.
