It’s a situation we’re all familiar with: you head to the nail salon with visions of amazing nail art dancing in your head. Then you get there, and there are too many choices… how do you pick a shade of pink, let alone choose the perfect print from a thousand different design options?! Especially hard is selecting a design that’s cute, but also work-appropriate, because if you’re paying to get your nails done, there’s no way you want to remove it come Monday.
We’ve rounded up some of our latest nail art inspiration perfect for work, courtesy of some of the salons featured on Vaniday (which by the way, saves you money as you get 10 percent cashback on every booking and saves your manicure, because once you set up an account, you can pay for services online so there’s no smudges from you delving into your purse).
