We judge a person by his/her facial expressions and body language, but there's one little detail we often overlook that can probably give us more insight about their personality.
A recent Japanese trend suggests, that you can learn more about an individual's personality by looking at her/his nail shape. So, stop staring and appreciating her gorgeous manicured nails, and learn more about her personality too. As our WhatsApp status depicts our mood, our nail shape too can describe our personality.
