Nail polish originated in China, dating back to 3000 BC. Ming Dynasty nail polish was made from a mixture of beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes, and gum Arabic . The colors gold and silver symbolized royalty. Egyptians used henna stains making their fingernails orange which would then turn dark red or brown after the stain matured. In 1300 BC, the color of the nail polish symbolized the ranking of social class each individual earned: gold and silver were considered to be the royal colors; however, were later changed to black and red. The lower classes would wear pale colors and when the high society color changed to red, that is the color Cleopatra would often wear.
