If You're An Enneagram Type 1, You Should Try This Nail Color

As the Enneagram test has risen in popularity, we've all watched folks use their results to make more and more decisions. In reality, knowing what your Enneagram type really means can help you in many different areas of your life. 

Since you know that you're an Enneagram type one, that means that you've already taken the Enneagram test and you have an idea about how you got your result. The Enneagram test is a personality test that sorts you into one of nine personality types based on your greatest desires, your fears, and the way you think (via Verywell Mind). As a one, you are called The Reformer, and your moral compass and success are the things that drive you (via The Enneagram Institute). Knowing a thing or two about being a one can guide you through life's many choices — from a major decision like what career you should pursue as a one to simple choices like what nail polish color suits you best.

The best subtle hues for a One

Ones are all about practicality and perfectionism (via The Enneagram Institute), so there's no reason why your manicure should be any different. As a result, you'll probably feel happiest when your nails have a subtle, neutral color palette, according to Apartment Therapy. Light greys, light greens, and other neutrals are all great choices. Depending on the time of year, you're also likely to love the clean look of white or off-white polish.

For an everyday manicure, you may even choose to clean up and buff your nails and leave them free of polish or opt for a clear lacquer. As a total perfectionist, you probably can't bear having nails with chipped polish. Choosing clear or no polish means you won't have nail chipping to worry about. That means you can go longer in between manicures, which is a blessing for your busy schedule. 

Ones' best bold options

Of course, just because you're a perfectionist, that doesn't mean you never want to have a little fun or switch things up every once in a while. Reds that are on the cooler side and bright purple shades are perfect picks if you're in the mood for something bold (via Apartment Therapy). These colors give you the drama you're craving without being too off-the-wall or risky.

Ones are known for always holding true to their ethics and values. As such, ones like to see good versus bad as black and white with no grey areas (via Picture Polish). In line with this way of thinking, black is a great bold choice for your nail polish color. You may be thinking that black nail polish reminds you of your rebellious teenage years. These days, however, it's easy to make black nail polish look clean and chic — especially in the colder months. Plus, black nails go with any outfit you can think of, and nails that don't clash with your look make for a perfectionist one's dream manicure.
