13 Reasons Why Nail Varnish Colour
Katie Louise-Smith

By Katie Louise-Smith


Fans of 13 Reasons Why are posting tributes to Hannah Baker on social media using a very particular colour of nail varnish.

You may have noticed that Selena Gomez and the rest of the cast turned up at the premiere for the show wearing a deep shade of blue on their fingers a few weeks ago. Well, there was a reason behind it and it's pretty moving.


In the book and Netflix series, Clay notices that Hannah's tapes are numbered using blue nail varnish - the same colour that Hannah wore on the last day of her life and the very last time Clay saw her. Later in the show, you'll notice the nail varnish make a few small yet poignant appearances. 

Now fans across the world have started painting their nails the same colour to raise awareness for Hannah and people in her situation.
