These 11 Nail Art Designs Are the #ScorpioEnergy We Need

An astrologer confirms they like intense, gothic designs.

Scorpio season is in full swing, and we're embracing the intense period by celebrating it in any way possible, whether that be in the fragrance we wear or the nail art we decorate our tips with. Jazzing up our nails is one of the easiest ways to revamp our beauty look, so we tapped astrologist and author Lisa Stardust to understand what nail designs Scorpios are drawn to.

"They like darker colors and reds, as Scorpio season falls between autumn and winter," explains Stardust. "Scorpios are dominant, intensely emotional, and like to be in control. They also have a strong appetite for sex. All this combined makes them like intense, magical, and gothic nail art."
