100 Nurse Nail Designs Inspired by the Medical Profession

440

We’re featuring nurse nails today, friends! Do you want to hear one sad trivia about nurses and nail art? Fact is, most nurses can’t wear nail polish at work. Just like their scrub suits and minimal makeup, clean and unpainted nails are part of a nurse’s uniform.oks

For sure, there are many nail art enthusiasts among nurses out there. However, because of the risk of infection from chipped nails, extensions, and artificial nails, nail-loving nurses are having to pass up on them. Tom Sandford of the Royal College of Nursing stated, “Nail varnish and extensions harbour bacteria and prevent good hand hygiene.” One nurse laments how a cheerful design would have made her day brighter, however, it is recognized that patient safety comes first for medical staff.

So when can they wear nail polish and show off their own style via nail art design? The safest answer would be during day-offs and vacations. Another would be during special events like Halloween or Christmas when nurses have costume parties.

For those occasions, we have the perfect array of choices for you. Check out these nurse nails. You’ll find an amazing and dazzling collection ranging from finely detailed body parts, humorously gross anatomy, blood abstract art, skulls and bones, pun-y lines like “can you feel my heart?”, and ECG nail designs. We’ve got them in a dizzying mix of colors, mattes, sparkles, and acrylics.
