Office style is about looking professional, neat, and feminine. A beautiful manicure is an important component of every businesswoman’s look. In this post, we are going to share with you some chic manicure ideas given by beauty blogger hannahroxit and lulus. Look at the fabulous nail designs below, choose the ones you like, and get ready to wow your workplace.
Nude and pastel shades
Nude and pastel shades are always a perfect choice if you need to create an elegant office look. Use a liner brush if you want to embellish your nails with an intricate marble pattern, as shown above.
Women who love classic looks will love wearing nail polish in natural shades. Prepare your nails, and apply a pink semi-transparent base coat. Then apply a little white polish onto a sponge, and dab it onto your nails, starting from the center. Gradually increase pressure as you move toward the tips of your nails to create a beautiful ombré effect.
Start by drawing the V-shape design at the center of the middle fingernail, and then draw a small triangle at the base of the nail of the ring finger. Use black polish to fill in the triangle and to paint the area outside the V-shape. Paint the top two-thirds of your thumbnail with a black polish. Using thick gold polish, accentuate the nail of your index finger with a half moon design, and add a large accent dot on the pinkie nail.
Dark red is another traditionally flattering and accepted polish color. Update it a little bit by creating a geometric pattern on your ring finger. Choose a pastel rose base coat, and make a geometric design using striping tapes. Paint the dark red color over the entire exposed part of the nail, and remove the tape immediately after painting the top color. When you’re done, paint each nail with a clear top coat.
Original French manicure
Doing a French manicure at home is quite easy if you use crescent-shaped nail guides. Paint your nail tips with gold, pink, or black polish instead of basic white, and add a clear top coat to protect the look of your freshly painted nails. This style of manicure works well for both short and long nails.
