How to Pull Off Nail Art at the Office

As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.

Beauty editors have it good; we can wear whatever nail art we want at the office, and nobody can say anything because it's our job! (Or, if you're in Los Angeles, it's just an LA thing.) But if you work in a more conservative office environment, chances are that bedazzled, 3D-adorned, sparkly claws won't be something you can show off . . . unless your client is Rihanna.

Here's the thing, though: we know you want to experiment and have fun without distracting people with your sick nails. That's where we come in. These six designs are customized for the working girl who has an image to uphold but still wants people to take a closer look at her manicure. For instance, take classic red nail polish, incorporate Scotch tape, and you have a chic negative-space manicure. Or add a tiny dot of navy or plum to a nude manicure for a minimalist nail art look.

Check out all six looks and let us know which one's your favorite!
