Taylor Swift has some of the most loyal fans in the game. Her Swifties, as they're called, are so faithful that when the ME! singer started dropping clues that she was working on a super secret seventh album, they began feverishly dissecting the pop star's every move, post, and temporary hair color for theories.
In the interview for her cover story, Swift admits that the first time she visually hinted at the new album was with her pastel nails in the vertical Spotify video for "Delicate," and some fans actually picked up on the super subtle hint. "A lot of their theories were actually correct," Swift told EW. "Those Easter eggs were just trying to establish that tone, which I foreshadowed ages ago in a Spotify vertical video for ‘Delicate’ by painting my nails those [pastel] colors."
For those who missed the fingernail-sized thematic clue, if you look back at the "Delicate" video — with eyes peeled for the manicure — you'll find that at exactly 2 minutes and 54 seconds into the song, there's a quick flash of Swift's nails towards the camera: a rainbow gradient of Easter-egg polish, a different pastel shade on each finger.
