Capsule Nail Wardrobe: Work
As I’ve mentioned before I recently started a new job and now work in a more professional atmosphere, this means that even my nails have to look the part. No bright colours or glitter. Super boring, eh? I thought I’d put together a little capsule nail wardrobe of work appropriate nail colours for anyone else in a similar situation. Muted neutral tones and pastel shades are allowed so I’ve picked out five of my favourites.
Deborah Lippmann – Modern Love
Modern Love is a pink toned neutral greige shade, it looks perfect on my nails as it seems to warm my hands up a little bit. I’ve received compliments when I’ve worn this shade to work, the perfect neutral.
L’Oreal Colour Riche – You Are Worth It
You Are Worth It is a lovely blue-toned grey shade, I love the way it looks on my nails. It’s more blue than grey and is perfect for cooler weather.
OPI – Mermaid’s Tears
Mermaid’s Tears is the perfect pastel turquoise shade, it’s quite muted and again there is a bit of grey in there to calm it down a little. It can appear quite bright in some lights but I’d still say it was work appropriate.
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine – Lychee
Lychee is a true beige shade, almost like a sand colour, it’s a little too light for me but I do like it and I think it would look fab on others. It also looks amazing with a bit of glitter on top (at the weekends obviously…).
Revlon – Strawberry Cream
Strawberry Cream is one of my all time favourite nail polish shades, it’s a lovely creamsicle shade – pink but with peachy undertones. It’s fresh and bright without being too garish, it makes me happy when I see my fingers typing away with this on. It’s also scented and has a very subtle strawberry fragrance.
