Work appropriate mani Monday: Split personality

Like last week, this mani's work appropriateness is debateable. I argue that because dark coloured nails have made a comeback and are generally accepted in the workplace (see here and here), and because white nails have been universally accepted as office friendly for a while now (see here, here and here), then the combination of the two in a simple clean cut design must be okay!

Maybe dark nails are not ideal for an interview, and so that would eliminate using any dark polish even if only half a nail, but if you already got the job, then why the heck not!

I saw this split look recently done by Aliciatnails on Instagram and so I had to re-create it. Doing so gave me a better idea of what to do for Earth Day nails, so this design actually serves as the base for my next post, hee hee.

I first painted on opaque white polish (2 coats) then free-handed the black on half of every nail. You could just use tape to get a perfect line, but I was too impatient to wait for the white to dry.

Polishes used:
- Orly 'Pointe blanche' (white)
- Cult Nails 'Nevermore' (black)
