Look sharp with this shattered glass stripe nails style

Studies show that women in the workplace often get less credit than their male counterparts. While it may be uncomfortable to toot your own horn in professional settings, the clothing and accessories you wear can have a positive effect on your confidence and self-esteem. That's where this shattered glass stripe manicure comes in.
Although this look features a pale pink base, the addition of a vertical cellophane stripe gives it a razor-sharp edge. Try this style the next time you have a presentation or job interview and want to make a strong impression.
