LET HER FINGERNAILS DO THE TALKING
How women dress up their fingernails reveals their inner personality, says Pam Bell, a color, consultant and the official numerologist for the National Examiner. Bell offers readers these tips on how to nail down the psychological profiles of the women in their lives by checking out their manicures:
Pink polish -- Romance and friendship motivate women fond of this ultra-feminine hue.
Orange polish-- World of caution -- only confident big-city gals on the cutting edge of style can really carry off this color.
Red polish-- The power color attracts born leaders who have a mission in life.
Offbeat colors -- A rebellious side resides in women who get dolled-up in unnatural colors like blue or green.
French manicures-- These ladies put a lot of work into looking like they have naturally perfect nails. They have their tips enhanced by white polish and the rest covered in light pink or beige, completing the illusion with a coat of clear lacquer. These gals hope they come off like the girl next door -- only better.
No polish-- It takes a self-sufficient woman to go bare. But her confidence can lure her into talking on too much.
