Let’s Discuss: The Office-Appropriate Manicure

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m a bonafide nail polish addict. So much so that I actually dislike getting salon manicures and my weekly home manis are a time of relaxation and reflection.

I’ve amassed a healthy collection of polishes (which I can regretfully confirm has crept into the triple digits) and it is definitely skewed towards “party” polishes, i.e. deep emeralds and purples, holographic metals and my favorite – glitters!

A few years ago when I worked in Oil & Gas, I would stick to basic French manis or neutrals for work and reserve the party for my feet. Now that I work in startups and media, I don’t even think twice when reaching for the periwinkle blue – my manicure of the moment.

So tell us, does work influence your color choice for your manicure? Or do you pick whatever strikes your fancy. Answer the poll below and share your current manicure in the comments!

P.S. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more NOTD (nail of the day) shots!
