Office-Appropriate Nail Art: 3 Ways To Get It Right

Share

If you’re a creature of habit when it comes to your weekly manicure, try branching out with a hint of nail art that is fully office-appropriate. If you’re hesitant to go full tilt and want to keep the look professional, try a french manicure in unexpected colors, half moon nails in neutral shades or a subtle glitter ombre. This chic approach to nail art will spice up your day with each click of the keyboard. We had three staffers give these looks a try to inspire your future office manicures.

Unexpected French Manicure

Pick an unexpected color combo for a French manicure in deep purple and opaque gold. Although the colors are a bold statement, the design of this nail art will blend in at the office - that is, until it's noticed!

Neutral Half Moon

If you are a creature of habit and always get the same neutral polish, try getting a metallic half moon to spice up the look. The trend is easy to pull off and will totally work at the office especially if you get colors that aren't in high contrast.
