How and When to Use the 🪆 Nesting Dolls Emoji

  • If you’re starting to get to know someone and you’re also learning that they’re a lot, LOT more than the picture you first saw, you can use 🪆 while texting someone about this phase. For example, “Dude. He says he’s boring, but he’s THE MOST interesting guy I’ve come across 🪆”.
  • You could also apply the same concept to things too; be it a Netflix series that picks up from the third season, a fictional character who does have a spine or even a book that’s definitely better than its cover.
  • Apart from the previous interpretations, 🪆 could also signify the deeper and most personal aspects to someone or something. For instance, if someone’s trying to “get to know you” by asking you inappropriate and personal stuff, you can use 🪆 as a way of saying “Sorry bro. It’s the last layer 🪆. You gotta earn that”.
  • When you’re generally suggesting that there are more sides to someone or something, use 🪆. For instance, “Don’t say that. You hardly know him and for all you know, you’re just used to one side of him 🪆”.
