First things first. You must choose the shade, the shape, and the style of your nails. Think if you want them to stand out, or to be more on the classic side, if you will attend some important business meetings, or just cuddle most of the time or freelance the whole week. For times when you need something classic and universal, choose light brown nail designs with little to no additional details. Beige brown will be the best idea. The length can be short or medium. For parties, vacations or any other casual events, you may opt for something more badass, including long brown stiletto nails, brown nail designs with a lot of accents, etc.
