Nail Polish Magic

Today’s post is a little bit different. It’s fun and simple and a great way to add some good mojo to your day.

You see, I’m all about practical magic and adding little touches of magic into your daily life.

There are tons of ways to add a touch of magic into your life and one of my favorites is by painting my nails. 

Yes, you heard me correctly! If you are at all interested in magic then you’ve probably heard about color correspondences and how each color can create a sort of atmosphere or feeling. For example you probably associate red and pink with love, green with money, yellow with happiness, blue with emotions and so on.

You can use that same kind of philosophy in painting your nails. If you’re in a bad mood try painting your nails yellow, if you want to repel negativity do black, if you want to be more peaceful paint them light blue or white. See! It’s as easy as that. You can also paint them using chakra color associations. Need to feel more grounded? Red. Having communication issues? Blue.

Painting each of your finger nails a different color to create a rainbow effect is an instant mood lifter, I’ve done it. I also love painting my nails silver in homage to the full moon and or seafoam green when I’m feeling especially in love with Aphrodite.

Here’s a quick list of colors and their associations:
Red: Passion, courage, motivation
Pink: Self-love, harmony, romance
Orange: Alertness, harvest, happiness
Yellow:  Creativity, intellect, communication
Green: Healing, prosperity, fertility,
Blue: Wisdom, calm, joy
Purple: Spiritual protection, wisdom, psychic powers
Black: Protection, neutralizing, grief, truth
White: Higher self, enlightenment, health

Do you use certain colors to help improve your mood or atmosphere? Do you have any quirky tips to fitting magic into your daily life?

    Interesting… I've painted my nails different colors before, but I never thought of it in color correspondences…
    *thinks back*
    Sometimes the colors did their trick without me knowing it, though.
    Will certainly keep this in mind. Lately, I've just been painting them clear, to protect them from work so they can grow in without breaking…

  • I've never thought about it this way either, this could be fun!

    What fun! I love painting my nails all sorts of colors, but I just usually go with what color I feel like wearing, I haven't really used color correspondence before. A lot of the time I wear black polish, but some of my other favorites are purple, green, and blue. Sometimes a very pale pink, but usually not dark pink. Every so often I'll wear some shade of red or coral/copper. Hm… I don't have any yellow polish. But I think yellow polish wouldn't look too good on me! (Yellow shirts don't look too great on me, and neither do crystal bracelets that are yellow… but I could use some third-chakra power!) Thanks so much for this fun post, Dominee!

  • Ooooh that's genius!!! I've never really been a painting my nails kind of person, but I might change that now!!!¬†
