What Do Your Fingernails Reveal About Your Personality?


When you meet someone, what’s the first thing you do? Usually, it is shake hands. So hands are important. And your fingernails are a part of your hands that say a lot about you-like are you nervous or are you confident? Take this quiz and see what your fingernails reveal about your personality!

Did you know?

Fingernails, like hair, are made of a protective protein called keratin

Fingernails grow about one tenth of an inch per month. Your fastest growing nail is on your middle finger, and the slowest growing nail is on your thumb. Nails grow faster in warmer climates than in colder ones. Typing on a computer keyboard can actually stimulate nail growth because the action increases blood flow in the matrix where matrix cells are formed, and this helps increases growth. Nail biting, or onychophagia, is the most common nervous habit according to WebMD and is very easy to spot when looking at someones' hands. In fact, nails are often seen as a window to the entire body. A well-trained doctor can tell a lot about your health from looking at your nails. For example, if your nail bed has a blueish discoloration it could be a sign of lung disease. And if you become dehydrated, it makes your nails dry and brittle. In addition to being an indicator of health, for many women, nails are an indicator of wealth as nothing screams that you have your life together more than a perfectly polished and manicured hand. Nail polish was invented around 5000 years ago by the Chinese who mixed gelatine and beeswax to make it. In Ancient Egypt, nail polish was used to signify class rankings. The lower class wore nude or light colors, and the high society painted their nails red-a color that remains iconic for nails even today. Nowadays, the most expensive bottle of nail polish in the world costs over $200,000 and is made with 267 karats of black diamonds in it!

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
