This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at NCSU chapter.

TikTok has always blown me away with its trends, but this time the red nails caught my attention! As someone who spends many hours scrolling through TikTok, I can confidently say that this one has caught the eye of many users.

Influencers and creators have been showcasing their unique red manicures while sharing their theories about the new confidence boost and new attention they are experiencing.


This all began when Robyn Delmonte, @girlbosstown, revealed that every time she showed off her scarlet nails, she received numerous compliments from the opposite sex!

Why red? Well, red has a long history of being an eye-catching color. Its bold yet passionate nature has a certain allure that’s hard to resist. Whether it’s the boldness of a cherry red or deep maroon, red nails can make a statement like no other.


So try out this theory for yourself! When it’s time for a fresh new set of nails, or you’re looking to switch things up for the fall. Whatever your style, experimenting with red nails is a fun and fashionable way to explore this TikTok trend.
