Dreaming of nails

Dreaming of nails may seem an unusual dream, but it is even a fairly common dream, especially among women, according to research in this area.

As I always say, it is possible to understand what the meaning of dreaming with a nail or another dream is, but it can vary from person to person, everything will depend on what happened in your dream. That’s why I decided to make a very complete article with several interpretations on this topic, I hope you like it.

Ready to understand why you dreamed about this?

Dreaming with a nail: What does it mean?

Generally speaking, dreaming of a nail indicates that you are a determined person and when you fight you always go all the way with all your strength.

Depending on how the dream is expressed, it may also represent a moment of anxiety or nervousness that you have been facing in your life. The interpretation of dreams is never the same from person to person, but most of the time a dream can be an alert from your unconscious so that it can change something in your life.

In general for everyone, dreaming with a fingernail means strength, energy, vitality, and a willingness to face problems without fear of fighting for what you really want.

Below I will list some of the most common nail dreams and what they may actually indicate to you, don’t forget that they may vary a little. Try to understand the meaning well, but in general when our instinct (6th sense) is right it will assimilate…believe you.

Beautiful and healthy nails

If you dreamed that your nails were beautiful and very healthy it is a sign that you have a very balanced and prosperous life. Keep your habits, but the fact that this dream is good is not a sign for you to go out there ruining your health. If you already dream about dirty nails, it can mean financial difficulties.

Dreaming with fingernails

It’s a warning to your subconscious that you may need someone with the courage to help you. Therefore, it is necessary to act firmly and especially to believe that you can overcome this obstacle.


The indication is very clear that you should follow a path that you may not like at first. However, all the discomfort will be overcome and dreaming of a toenail has exactly that meaning. But in order to work you need to have attitudes in that same direction.

Toe nail

This is a very strong indication that someone is in need of help and you should proceed with mutual assistance. Remember the law of love and try to understand that charity is a virtue that you greatly appreciate.

Long and mistreated nails

Dreaming of long fingernails may indicate that you are a person who takes some time to make important decisions. If you have dreamed about it, reflect a little on your life, if there is really something you should have decided and didn’t. Solve it soon.

Dream with a rotten fingernail

This is a very positive omen and brings information that is negative, especially regarding your health. Find a doctor and do everything as planned, because it will end up being the best alternative. Although you think it is not necessary, the truth is that you should do it.

Short nails

If you dream of short nails it may indicate that you can be rewarded for the work you have been doing, it may be in your work or in your friendships.

Pain nails

Know that if you dreamt that your nails were false, it may indicate that you are not being sincere in your relationship. If so, stop lying to yourself.

You should reflect well on life, and solve the problem in the way you think is best. Don’t imprison other people’s lives and yours as well. Whether it’s out of jealousy, doubts, interests, or other things… whatever the reason, always be a real person.

Red nails

Red is a strong colour, it is related to the colour of love, of passion… If you dream of red nails this may indicate a temptation.

Have you felt any desire for anyone? Some kind of interest that makes you have more tempting thoughts? Think about it.

A broken nail

This dream can be seen as a warning from your unconscious. If you dream you have your fingernail broken it is a good time to reflect on your actions in recent times. But never make a decision on the spot, think about it and become a better person.

Fucked up nail

This is an excellent omen and indicates that you will have a lot of happiness in your family and it will be soon. Dreaming of a fucked-up nail is a sign of seeking tranquility so that everything can work in a short time. The main thing is to understand that the more faith there is, the greater the chance that it will work.

Dreaming that you’re cutting a nail

This is undoubtedly one of the most common dreams, it can mean lack of honesty on your part. It has been dreamed that the fingernail falling off the fingers alone indicates insecurity on your part or that you are feeling helpless.

Roaming nails

A dream where you are biting nails can be a warning that a difficult problem is coming that you will have to face. You should pay extra attention because it will probably come and you are already counting on it. Never bravely face difficult problems, be smart.

Nails growing

If you dream about growing fingernails it means you want to get closer to certain people. Reflect, and if so, approach them but always with caution, as you may get hurt again or put yourself in less good situations.

With nails stuck

Usually a stuck nail ends up creating pain, so people who have this dream think it’s a bad omen. But it’s not. It indicates that positive things may appear in your life… for old Ditato used to say, “after the storm comes the bonanza.

A painted

This is a dream that indicates a bad omen. Unfortunately, it means that something could happen to your relationship. If the nail was painted black, it could really be a serious breakup in your relationship.

This could mean that some fights could arise that could cause your separation. Think carefully and see if you don’t misunderstand some situation, if not jealousy speaking louder. But if you’re sure it’s not your fault, don’t fear the problems.


Observing your nails

It may indicate that you’re on the back foot with someone, be they a friend or relative. Make a brief relationship and see if you are reacting defensively with anyone.

Try to understand why, because if your unconscious has shown you this, something is not right, don’t you think? Be smart, but don’t make decisions just because you do…watch without talking to anyone about it.
