Nail Polish Colors for Months of the Year

This prompt is a bit different from what I usually write about, but the idea crossed my mind and I couldn’t resist! Do my nails actually match the colors of the corresponding months? No! However I do like to imagine each month has its own personality, and I felt the need to find the appropriate color.

January

Mink Grey. January can be one of the dreariest months of the year, but also calming and reassuring as it’s a brand new start to the year. January is typically when people commit to new beginnings and self-improvement. This shade of grey reminds me of a blank slate, similarly in New Year’s resolutions.

February

Bubble Gum Pink. Inspired by Valentine’s Day, February almost has a feminine tone to it? (Maybe that’s just me.)

March

Shamrock Green. Clearly inspired by St. Patricks day. March has a lush sound to it, just like the color green.

April

Periwinkle. I’ve always found this color charming, just like all my Aries friends! Periwinkle feels right for this time of year because of Easter, springtime, and anticipation of warmer weather.

May

Tiffany Blue. May is deserving of another springy, pastel color. May encompasses excitement around Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and outdoor entertainment.

June

Marigold. June is synonymous with warm weather, feel good music, and “Summer Fridays”.

July

Cherry Red. The month of July reminds me of cherry pie, heat, and the 4th of July.

August

Mustard. August encapsulates the wind down of the summer month, but is still known for it’s heat.

September

Moss Green. While September is the beginning of fall, I wanted to pick a warmer color here. September also reminds me of school supplies, extracurriculars, and family outings.

October

Pumpkin. Also inspired by a widely celebrated holiday, Halloween! Coincidentally, orange is also associated with the family of “fall colors”.

November

Space Cadet Blue. I debated on going with a deep green, gray, or brown, but this deep blue felt right. November is when the temperature starts to cool down and we spend much more time indoors. Sometimes we even get a glimpse of snow!

December

Mahogany. A beautiful, deep and rich red that reminds you of Christmastime. By this time of year I’m as pale as a ghost, and this dark color looks great on pale skin, IMO.
