What Do Purple & Pink Represent?

The color purple is associated with a lot of different things, including royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple is also said to represent wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.

A lot of the things that the color purple is associated with contradict each other.

And when it comes to pink, well…

Softer pinks are nurturing, feminine colors and are often associated with innocence and romance. That said, pink is a bit of a shapeshifter as it’s also often worn in rebellion to its cutesy, girlie reputation.

After all pink is the new punk. Brighter and darker tones and shades of pink are often associated with love, lust, self-assurance, and confidence.

So really pink is anything you want it to be.

What Do Pink And Purple Nails Say About You?

The only thing that wearing pink and purple nail polish says about you is that you like those colors. Trying to look for meaning in the nail polish colors people wear is like basing your assumptions of people based on their zodiac sign.

People make up weird symbolic rules over nail color (see What Does White Nail Polish Mean? and Why Paint One Nail a Different Color?) Let’s leave Cracker Jack box pseudo-psychology to those who have nothing better to do than to pass judgment on people they don’t know.

And let’s get to the nails!
