    Single women have been showing off the results of the viral "red nail theory", which claims you'll get far more dates after painting your nails red.

    The trend started on TikTok after a woman claimed "men are attracted to red nails".

    The 28-year-old mentioned in her post: "I know guys are attracted to red nails and I will tell you why. It's called the 'red nails theory'.

    "Hear me out, every time I have red nails, every single time, a guy comments on it. It will be like if I put my hands on the side of my face while Face-timing, he will be like 'oh I like your nail colour'.

    "I always think red nail is like a grandma nail colour and then it hit me. In the 90s when we were growing up, women had red nails a lot, especially like our mums.

    "And guys are attracted to red nails because it reminds them of their mums when they were growing up and taking care of them, or some sort of mummy issue."

    In a more recent video, she said she remains single but is glad that the red nail trick works for other women.

    "So I accidentally started a global phenomenon and every single woman is now walking around in their red nails…You guys, clearly I'm joking around in the video, not everything said online is that serious," she added.

    One TikToker, Melissa, showed off her red nails in a video, claiming the theory "is so real" and said she was asked out on five to six dates in the past two weeks.

    "Just saying, the nail theory worked, now I have a boyfriend," another woman shared.

    But not all were successful to get themselves a date as one wrote: "I've had red nails for the past 10 years and I am still single."

    A second added: "Had painted my nails red for the last two weeks and no one asked me out."
