There’s nothing that completes the ultimate boss-lady suit like the right manicure, and nothing that will earn you odd, judgemental looks like wrong manicure. Stay away from IG-worthy, non-functional claws and bright red glitter looks. In a typical office, it’s usually better to keep it neutral. But that doesn’t have to imply boring! Here are the most elegant work-friendly manicures that you’ll nail without even trying!
1. This neutral and rose gold manicure is the perfect way to add a little bit of sparkles to a perfectly office-appropriate nail. The thin stripes and single metallic look is suitable with practically any clothing choice.
2. This pink and gold appearance with a delicate black tip-lining is utter perfection, not just for the workplace, but any occasion we can think of. It’s like a little ring for each of your nails! Sleek on short or slightly longer nails.
3. This pink and white ombre design with a single diamond on each ring finger is so lovely, but looks tough to pull off in a DIY form so we suggest going pro for this look. It has a subtle barely-there aesthetic that is clean, minimal, and particularly lovely in pink.
4. Sort of similar to the gem on the last one, but we adore the unusual exposure of the nail bed and a square tip with this cream Essie hue. The cluster of three jewels on each fingers is surprisingly subtle and looks ideal at the point where polish-meets nail-bed, here.
5. There’s nothing wrong with a classic! A matte, taupe tint is usually highly elegant and classy for in the office, or after work get-togethers. Apply it in clean, solid coats, to a slightly filed and elongated oval form, like this manicurista!
6. This is another neutral to white ombre that’s incredibly clean, and looks amazing on short nails (no 3-inch acrylics in the office, yet, sorry ladies) (no 3-inch acrylics in the office, yet, sorry ladies). The white upper edge creates a clean, basic finish while the nude-pink OPI hue softens the look up a little.
7. Sorry guys, we’re really enjoying these exposed nail-bed looks. It’s a great approach to add depth and character to a manicure without adding excessive color that will make your co-workers side-eye how extra you are. The white line in the midpoint contrasts wonderfully with your natural nail-bed and the typical light pink gracing the top part. Play around with the color of the line to mix things up a little.
8. This peach inverted triangle with a golden dot at the base of each nail-bed is so simple, but just in time for spring. We definitely enjoy the exposed nail-bed, but love the twist of the inverted triangle on this one. What cutout shapes would you play with?
9. A little deeper subdued style for people who aren’t really about the light pink and cream colour. Matte dark brown, square cut nails compliment a milky brown-tan single finger with amazing but still low-key nail art put on, and bejeweling on a few of the beds
