While officially known as the nail polish emoji, it is sometimes called the nail paint, nail painting, nail care, beauty, or manicure emoji.

Beyond its literal meaning, the image evokes a sense of regal aloofness. In March 2014, Alexander Abad-Santos and Allie Jones wrote in The Atlantic that the nail polish emoji was β€œthe Beyonce of emojis,” and can mean β€œanything from shutting haters down to a sense of accomplishment; a swift β€˜I don’t care’ to a spa day.”

Adam Sternbergh observed in New York Magazine in November, 2014 that the nail polish emoji had begun to mean β€œI’m not bothered” or β€œHaters gonna hate.”

The sassy sense of the nail polish emoji had indeed become so popular that BuzzFeed declared 2014 β€œthe year of the nail care emoji” in a year-end roundup of the β€œmost nail care emoji moments” of the past year.

Who uses πŸ’… - nail-polish?

On social media, many use the nail polish emoji to highlight an impressive manicure or fancy outfit. Others, drawing on a popular association between manicures and pampering, use the nail polish emoji to signal a relaxing day off, self-care, or feeling beautiful.

Since at least 2014, though, the nail polish emoji has been used as an emotional tone marker to communicate sass, indifference, or poise in text.
