Color and the Career

Essence shares a great selection of warm skin tone-flattering polish colors that are not only on trend, but perfect for office-wear as well.

If you’re interested in grays, try to avoid dull hues and opt for polishes that have a satiny finish or shimmer, according to Roxanne Valinoti, CND celebrity nail professional. Noteworthy gray shades include OPI’s It’s Totally Fort Worth It and Jason Wu for CND’s Nail Colour.

If you’re looking for color, the magazine recommends being as creative and bold as your workplace will allow. Try Zoya’s Gemma or Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda for some fresh color.

If you’re looking for metallics, try some of the newer on-trend shades with green, copper, or turquoise sparkles. Not only are the colors flattering on warm skin tones, but they add lots of shimmer to nails at night.
