What's Your Signature Nail Shade?

Everyone should have one (yes, even you). Take this quiz to find yours

You have a trademark scent, a go-to hairstyle, and a makeup look you know flatters your face. Only thing missing: a signature nail shade. And no, I'm not joking.

Nonie Creme, creator of the butter LONDON nail polish line, says everyone should have a go-to nail polish color that's "them." (Hers, in case you were curious, is Union Jack Black by butter LONDON.) It's a way to make your mark, and feel like yourself even if the rest of your ensemble isn't quite right.

However, if you're like me, you hardly wear the same nail polish shade twice. So how are you supposed to know which nail polish color should be your signature?

Uh, you take this quiz. Obviously. But you knew that, right?

By answering these questions about your personality, you'll be able to nail down (ha!) the exact polish color you should wear when you want to feel like "you." Because, as you may have guessed, every nail polish shade says something about your personality. To find your match, and see what it says about you, just start answering questions below. Plus, at the end you'll also get some must-know nail tips from Creme and other nail experts. Psyched yet?

Luci Machac (Fri, 30 Sep 2011 09:56:57 -0700): wow it was really annoying trying to take this quiz when every 5 seconds it would take me to this beauty life ad and I had to keep clikcing return to site over and over.
Cook Brenda (Fri, 30 Sep 2011 17:41:30 -0700): got to try this. mine was red w/ a glitter to coat. so true.
Linda Goehring (Fri, 30 Sep 2011 18:48:21 -0700): Ditto Luci's remarks.
Elsa Bura-Paranoan (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 04:17:28 -0700): hmmmm... i love creme nail polish!!
Kristie Sup (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:17:28 -0700): Me? A temper? No way!
Caryn Tanis Tansky Boren (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:21:21 -0700): Organized and Stubborn, that's me. And I'm wearing a Nude shade of nail polish. So true!
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:32:55 -0700): Ronnie...it's "knew" not "new"....sorry, honey! Stay in school..please.
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:36:26 -0700): I'm in love with my nail polish color..Essie's "marino cool". Not purple not grey but purple with a touch of grey. Love it forever. For work, however, it's got to be nude or light pink..(nurse). Everyone please check out Essie "marino cool" at Target. Everyone comments on it!
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:38:36 -0700): Ronnie, if you love dark colors, you'll love Essie's marino cool at Target! They also have the dark blue shades also with a drop of grey so they're perfect.
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:42:30 -0700): I do my own nails... better than going to a nail salon...file under the corners for a great shape.....remember to use a good base coat to protect your nails from discoloring and a top coat to keep your polish fresh for over a week. This brand doesn't chip (for me) and lasts...
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:47:08 -0700): Essie and Opi are my favorite brands...good quality. Both at Target...good price. Probably at all other stores as well...I'm not pushing Target, lol...Oh, and Essie also has all the cool shades like the greens, blues, purples...I change the colors whenever I like! I'm a nail polish junkie.....I keep my nails short and on the square side. Still not liking the ovals but will try if they're back in fashion....but slowly.
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 13:53:33 -0700): One more comment....I don't like "nail art". I have small nails so it would make them look even smaller, but no I wouldn't like art even with larger nails.... And don't like the two tone look either. Just dark polish (Essie's marino cool!) etc.
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 14:03:00 -0700): Opi has a "glitter"product... just lays a coat of glitter on the nail. Hard to describe....goes on top of any polish and looks different with every color. Love, love. (still haven't worn it "out" yet) Probably won't...maybe a very thin coat? Not my lifestyle... does it matter? anyone?
Cohen Agnes (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 14:16:50 -0700): Took the quiz and it says my personality should wear the pale shades which I do at work; however, I love, love, love my Essie marino cool....so there goes the quiz!
Ashlie Michelle (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 16:04:39 -0700): RED IS A SLUTTY COLOR!
Shamink Coleman (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 16:35:09 -0700): thats not nice
Andrea Blackman (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 17:06:53 -0700): Not even close to correct. I do love a good dark polish but it's not my signature. I actually am more of a holographic or duochrome kind of girl. These tests are based on what because they are never even close for me. *shrug*
Monique Marie (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 17:30:41 -0700): Agnes, get off of your high horse. Are you too perfect to have a typo?
Brenda Nomas (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 19:49:32 -0700): This quiz is so silly... I'm a nail addict that wears tons of glitters and this said my signature shade is nude. Yeah, right.
Toneidra Lloyd (Sat, 01 Oct 2011 22:52:40 -0700): Like the quiz. Never thought red was for me, but I'm going to try.
Nural Kovacoglu (Sun, 02 Oct 2011 08:03:19 -0700): very tru it's cool.
Jayvee Fernando (Sun, 02 Oct 2011 12:07:38 -0700): YOUR RESULTS Your Signature Nail Polish: Red >> or shades of reds or pinks <3.
Amy Smitherman (Sun, 02 Oct 2011 12:15:06 -0700): Anyway, back to the quizzy, Not a real fan of red unless is holiday time, like Cherries in the Snow, Candy Apple red ( around x-mas or valentine's day! Currently into Halloween and fall shades!
Kathy Kusel (Sun, 02 Oct 2011 15:11:30 -0700): Cohen, could Ronnie have simply made a typo....Your response was insensitive, I agree with Shamink..Remember nurses take care of you when you are in a health care facility..I am a nurse also and I stand with Ronnie
Rosalie LaSaracina (Sun, 02 Oct 2011 17:11:10 -0700): Don't believe it but the test was right on. I don't take crap, can have a temper and love dark purple! WOW!
Carolyn Young (Sun, 02 Oct 2011 21:05:27 -0700): I mix my toes with the nail polish, right now they are pink and orange, one pink, one orange, etc,...or could have 5 colors of pink on,..one shade per toe nail...or just maiin colors of red, blue, green, yellow and purple...one color per toenail...or what ever comes up...playful with the colors or designs too....
Hope Crinklaw (Mon, 03 Oct 2011 00:44:18 -0700): bitch move, not cool
Billie Fink (Wed, 05 Oct 2011 08:39:14 -0700): Mine was Totally wrong, in fact polar opposite. I wear mostly a China Glaze brand , called Hawaiian Punch. It;s bright , beautiful , but not a red-red.The quiz told me I'm shy and a neat freak( b/c I have an organized closet). It suggested all nude or beige. Quiet tones, so flashy.
Beverly Davis (Fri, 07 Oct 2011 11:52:13 -0700): so funny My nail color is RED; and, it is always my go to color ~ before taking the quiz. I mix it up for season, how I feel, but IT’S RAINING MEN is my go to color. bj
Stephanie Leonard (Sat, 08 Oct 2011 10:03:58 -0700): Cohen, were you aware that the proper use of ellipses (those are the dot dot dots in your comment) involves the use of a space both before and after the three periods? Good luck on your career in Grammar Nazi-ism, doll!
Brittany V Taylor (Wed, 12 Oct 2011 19:35:48 -0700): ha! It said my signature polish would be darker shades and I just happen to be wearing dark purple nail polish right now.
Bonnie Hemmerling (Thu, 13 Oct 2011 21:34:27 -0700): Are you kidding me? I hate pale shades! Give me Red Hot Red or Pink Shock any day!
Yvonne Kelley (Thu, 13 Oct 2011 21:37:15 -0700): This quiz was right on....can't believe it!
Jo Scott Thomas Haas (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 06:35:50 -0700): It was exasperating tryingn to take quiz. I'm looking for a fallish burn-orange polish. Reds just aren't my thing.
Judy Roten (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 07:24:29 -0700): I've taken the quiz and have been waiting several minutes for the result... How long does it take?
Christine Krames (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 08:29:18 -0700): Mine said nude, and that is absolutely wrong.......I love the darker colors, even at my age,,,,,,,, I always have my nails done, first by my manicutist, and a couple days later, I take it off and put on different shade.........do them at least twice a week.
Marge Smith Donelson (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 09:15:00 -0700): Wow, very condescending... sorry honey! Stick to nursing... please!
Grace Brewer (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 09:38:08 -0700): Ooh I got red! Haha not much of a surprise I love painting my nails red. <3 Great quiz.
Pam Harrison Strasser (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 12:16:05 -0700): I don't want to have to sign up for your newsletter to find out the answer to the survey, which was annoying. No, thanks!
Maya Renee (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 12:20:26 -0700): I didn't get an answer, after Question 7, nothing happened.
Kimberly Ann Kiskadee (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 12:22:48 -0700): me too
Cohen Agnes (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 16:57:58 -0700): Leonard, be nice ..... and thanks for the correction. We learn something everyday. Sorry if I irritated you .... didn't mean it that way.
Cohen Agnes (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 16:59:00 -0700): Marge, it's not possible to really know me by a comment, but it shows the power of words. Sorry as well. That's not "me".
Cohen Agnes (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 17:06:03 -0700): Love to share "beauty" tips .... certainly not liking "grammar natzi-ism" (whatever that means) a little extreme, Stephanie, don't you think? Sometimes I can't help it ...... but I will always try.
Cohen Agnes (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 17:09:00 -0700): Another tip ... we must watch what we print for all to see ... it sometimes "isn't" who we really are. Lesson learned.
Sharon Roberts (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 17:12:49 -0700): Thanks for the clue!
Marge Smith Donelson (Fri, 14 Oct 2011 18:01:11 -0700): Agnes, It does show the power of a word and I could of gone without commenting because being judgemental is really not me. I'm sorry as well.
Ashley Addmynewfb Olszewski (Sat, 15 Oct 2011 00:54:34 -0700): I got red, I hate how red looks on my nails though, it looks tacky and overdone. Ergh, guess I better find a different signature shade.
Amanda Stella Retana (Sat, 15 Oct 2011 10:08:32 -0700): dark shades like purple, Emerald green, burgundy and black sparkle. That's cool.
Kim Prichard (Thu, 20 Oct 2011 11:09:22 -0700): Mine was dark colors which I only really wear on my toes. I prefer neutral or pale colors on my fingernails to elongate the (look of my) fingers.
Tatiana Sorosky (Sun, 20 Nov 2011 13:08:48 -0800): Yesss! Your Signature Nail Polish: Dark Shades. a pop of color on your nails is the ultimate accessory and instantly makes you look dressed up and pulled together. Hmmm...wonder if new nail polish might be in my stocking this year? LOL
Jordan Nelson (Sun, 11 Dec 2011 09:13:55 -0800): me too!
Kimberly Guggemos Barry (Sat, 14 Jan 2012 17:16:04 -0800): Nice, I'm a Red girl! It's no wonder my favorite polish shades are OPI's I'm not really a waitress & China Glaze's Ruby Slippers.
Dita Fitz James (Mon, 06 Feb 2012 18:32:43 -0800): Mine said I was a dark person and I only wear deep inky blues and purples.
Kathy Schmidt (Sat, 28 Apr 2012 21:05:32 -0700): Funny, the exact color blue purple in the picture I have on my toes now. Guess they were right this time.
Konstantina Bardamascou (Sat, 16 Jun 2012 14:29:48 -0700): I never do red.. silly quiz
Ann Riley Gray (Sat, 06 Oct 2012 15:47:58 -0700): My signature shade = nude shades. I don't think so! I love COLOR. Purple, blue, rose, dark green, and right now a medium green that I polished over with sparkles.
Debbie George (Sat, 06 Oct 2012 18:17:14 -0700): Okay, it said that mine was red because I take life seriously! And I said my dream job was a rock star. They didn't have retired as a choice. I like red in December but silver is my favorite. Purple is cool too.
Carole Altendorf (Wed, 07 Nov 2012 12:29:36 -0800): My signature color is the opposite of what I wear. Stupid quiz.
Kristen Sealy (Fri, 29 Mar 2013 11:32:18 -0700): My shade is red. I take life seriously, I know what I want and I'm not afraid to go get it... I need to not be afraid to loosen up sometimes. Lol who has time to loosen up? I know I dont
Catherine Hudson (Mon, 29 Apr 2013 13:58:57 -0700): Yay! Said my signature shade = dark shades! So true I love them. I'm wearing pastels at the moment though and I like those and blue as well..... Lol xxx
Nathalie Krantz (Fri, 14 Jun 2013 04:54:37 -0700): Red! That's true! Iwear all kind of red shades, so this was not wrong. But I love all kind of colours, but red is always the colour I turn back to if I don't know what to use :)
Regina Jean Cruz (Mon, 14 Apr 2014 21:54:36 -0700): I always put red! Haha :)
Desi Jem Barkell (Sat, 19 Apr 2014 21:29:24 -0700): same.
