Working Girl Nails: 5 Shades That Are Appropriate For Work

Painting your nails is a nice way to add a subtle touch to your outfit. But, when you’re in the workplace you have to be careful which color you choose to accentuate your ensemble. There is a difference between making a statement and causing a distraction. Your nail color should boost your confidence and give you the added pep you need to make it throughout your day. Here are five nail colors that will make any girl feel fabulous and professional:

First up is nude. Nude is a staple color that every girl should have in their nail polish collection. You can’t go wrong with such a classic color. Nude shows that you are feminine and sophisticated so it is a great color to wear for business meetings and presentations.

Power Pink. There are plenty of shades of pink, but you want to be sure to reserve the power pinks for work. These are the deep and mysterious pinks (raspberries and magenta) that show you’re all about business juxtaposed to the vibrant pinks that scream vacation.
