Can a colourful manicure boost your performance at the gym?

Based on what we know about power dressing, beauty rituals and the basics of colour therapy, we say yes, and here's why.

1. Colour therapy is an actual thing. Feel more confident in the office when you're wearing a red dress? Well then why not bring the same principles into the gym with you?

2. When you feel more confident you'll work harder, train harder and push yourself. If a little glamour boosts that, then why not?

3. Unlike wearing makeup at the gym, nail polish won't sweat or melt off your face nor clog those pores.

So now we've presented our argument, here are the top 5 nail shades to boost your workout. Try one and tweet us the result!

Red for aggression


If you lack aggression during your workout and want to push yourself harder, paint on a bright red. Grrr.

Gold for strength


Want to boost your strength? According to colour therapy charts, gold is good for boosting strength of both body and mind.

Yellow for stimulation


If you get bored in the gym but lack other options, yellow can help to promote feelings of joy and mental stimulation.

Black for power


Need an injection of raw power? Classic black is the one.

Purple to calm nerves


Need to get over your nerves? Purple can help calm your worries and boost your faith. Bring on the squat rack!
