This week the nail rivalry resumed with a new round of competitors: Thao Dang, China Washington and Temeka Jackson. The show began with a Quick Dry Challenge where each competitor had to create a set of wearable nails that could go from day to night. With the rise of nail art, finding work appropriate nails that also showcase the wearer’s style is often a challenge—but it’s not impossible. Incorporate some of these ideas into your next manicure to take your nails from day job to night on the town.
Have fun with color. Keep nails “work safe” by playing with color. Short nails in a bold hue—think navy, eggplant or gray—make for a fun take on a traditional manicure.
Add some glitter. A little bling is all you need to take a manicure from day to night. Try incorporating some glitter either with an accent nail, a shimmery take on a moon or French manicure or something more brilliant like a multi-color glitter fade.
