You are a hands-on type of woman. So, you have no problem being the first to head a project or meet a new client. That means all eyes are constantly on you, your hair, your clothes – and yes, even your nails.

“There are certain details about a professional woman that disclose her attention to detail, and nails are no exception,” says celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyess. The most important detail she adds, are your cuticles. “An easy way to achieve a professional clean-cut manicure is to keep your cuticles oiled and your nails cut to a natural length. Polish trends change like the seasons, so if you’re unsure about colors, stick with two coats of clear or the classic nude nail polish.”

Here’s how to nail the perfect manicure:

“Cuticles get dried out by washing your hands, biting your nails and over-exposure to cold weather,” warns Kyess. Pamper yours with Cuti-Cocktail by SpaRitual. Packaged in a convenient dropper bottle, it penetrates the nail matrix to condition cuticles and promote healthy nail growth.

Now that your cuticles are all taken care of, it’s time for a splash of color. We like these shades from Essie and Dashing Diva.

Want to try it before you buy it? OPI Nail Studio has a virtual simulator that allows users to test polish that looks best on their skin tone.

Don’t have time to wait for nails to dry? Buffing your nails is a great way to achieve a naturally smooth and shiny look without using nail polish.
