For the survey, paid for by a spray-on nail polish company, naturally, researchers asked over 2,000 men and women over the age of 18 what they thought a woman's manicure status said about her sex life.
In addition to that ridic red nail polish fact, the authors of the study also found that the majority of people think women with polished nails, regardless of color, tend to be more sexually active. Plus, the majority of survey takers in their thirties said that women who polish their fingers or toes are probably kinky. Somehow, we're not seeing the connection.
And it gets better—we mean worse—according to 28 percent of respondents, multi-colored nails signal even more specifics about your sexuality, alerting potential bedmates that you're a "lady in the street and a freak in the sheets."
So there's that.
Now, this may be a silly thought, but maybe some women just like the color red or are into the chevron nail art trend? A juicy happy-hour convo starter, for sure, but these findings are a little too close to short-hemlines-means-she's-asking for-it for our taste.
So, science, can we not?
