Diane's nail polish

 Something nobody seems to be talking about: Diane has three nails visible while holding her phone with the mystery text message. Top nail is painted White (white lodge), next nail is Red (red waiting room) and lower nail is Black (black lodge). 

I can't imagine these 3 nail colors are random. They are immaculately painted! So I'm wondering: why is Diane representing all 3 lodges/rooms? Surely there is something more to this??

I thought about this as well . I will have to go back and look, but when we first meet Diane, I believe her nails are painted 3 different colors too. I don't think they were white, red and black though. I could be wrong.

I also thought about her nail polish  - but I didn't see black, white, red. I saw lilac (very close to white though), magenta and dark aubergine (close to black/brown)

oo someone got a really good screen grab and the nails are easier to see.

Then her thumbs are that black/blown color, i think the same as her pinkies?

Probably just a nice bit of imagery in support of the narrative she's mixed up, Lynch does this ALL the time but people are very selective of the examples they like to... well... make examples of. Very cool but likely leading to nothing bigger plot wise, she is obviously connected to the Blue Rose cases, Cole has made sure the audience know that. I doubt in episode 17 some character will make a shocking revelation about her nail color choice. 

"It was you all along, Diane! The nails! We should have known! Albert, grab the Proton Pack!"

And the "Spitirual Finger" got a brighter colour. I hope Lynch want to say something through nail colours.

At least if it no, it's a fashion detail every Twin Peaks fan can try 😉

The nail colors seem to be something like a 'spiritual' profile. Colors are very big in this series and definitely have a meaning(red is desire, gold is profit/enjoyment, blue is loss/death/sadness/failure, purple is desire failing, hitting an obstacle(mother, etc.). 

Also notice in Philadelphia when Cole and Rosenfeld are trying to convince Diane to come along and meet Mr. C; and during this conversation notice how Diane is rubbing the fingers with her thumbs: first she is rubbing the black(nothing/negative) 'index finger' with her thumb when she is confrontational and obscene, then when Cole says something that catches/interests her she begins to rub the whitish(being, becoming) 'middle finger' exactly when she begins to agree.....

Oh, ok. I need to revisit that first meeting with Diane too. Thanks

True. Maybe a case of reading too much into every little thing?!

? yup. I'm leaning more toward your thinking now that the initial excitement at finding a clue has simmered down! ... altho I'm gonna keep an eye on those nails, just in case!

Beautiful interpretation of color use and i hope the nails do represent something deeper than a fashion statement. I'm going to revisit all the Diane scenes and pay closer attention to future scenes and those nails. 

I agree that Lynch is super savvy with symbolic references and Diane is such an important character.
