People on TikTok are sharing videos showing off their white nails, talking about being single or being confused about what it all means.

By contrast, blue nails means you’re in a relationship. The trend popped off a few months ago, with TikTok users saying light blue is the colour every single guy picks when you ask them what colour you should paint your nails.
