Nail Art For Office Goers
1. Marble Nails
The chic nail art might look complex, but it is actually quite simple to achieve. Paint the nails white and dip a scrunched up piece of plastic wrap in a grey or any other color and dab in onto your nails. Let it dry and finish with a top coat.
Painting the nails with close shades of a particular color is a smart way to add some interest to your boring regular manicure. It will look more original, neat and stylish. Simply choose various shades of a particular color and paint your nails from light to dark shades in a series. For example, shades of blue or pink will look great.
3. Nude With Subtle Highlights
A nude nail color is a great choice for office as it would look soft and formal. With the variety of nude colors available from peach to platinum and also flesh tones, you can never go wrong with it. If you want to add a little sparkle to it and make your nails trendier, add a single strip of gold or silver in whichever direction you want and finish it with a top coat.
4. Flip Side Twist
Make a statement with your nail art by painting the underside of the nails. Go for a pastel or neutral color nail polish on the top side and coat the underside of the nails with bright tangerine or neon colors. Cool and stylish your nails will look.
5. Black And Glitter
A glossy black polish with glitters would look out of the world. However, when you wear the classic combination for office, you need to wear it carefully, so that it looks stylish and yet not too sparkly and gaudy. So, paint the nails with black and paint a ray of golden or silver glitter on only one nail. You can go for a black and glitter geometric shape on an accent nail.
6. Gold Strips
The gold strips on white background are not only easy to make, but pretty as well. The straight lines in golden color are not too glittery, but add the right amount of sheen to your nails. You can be little creative and decide how to apply the lines, it could be straight, diagonal or simply an X.
7. Mixed Media
Layering shiny and matte polishes is fun way to do your nails. This is perfect way to play with the contrasts. A bit of matte and glossy polish is not only fancy, but the effect is faint enough for even a reserved workplace.
8. Single Dot
This minimalist nail art design is just perfect for those office goers, who don’t feel like doing complicated designs. The easy single dot design is pretty and chic. All you need is two contrasting nail colors. First apply the base nail polish and when it dries, add the super simple single dot in another color and you are ready to go. You can use the color combinations of your choice to get this subtle, yet striking design.
