Job Interview Nails

The topic came up in a Facebook group I am in: How should you wear your nails for a job interview? My answer is to do a classic pink or neutral nail. Not everyone in the professional world understands the new trends in nail art, and I have heard people in professional positions question trendy colors or nail art. Why risk a potential opportunity on the matter of nail polish? You can sort out the rules about polish later.

Here are a couple of examples of what I mean from recent posts. If you are interviewing in a very conservative industry, a very neutral color might be good.

Zoya Happi is a pretty pink with a bit of shimmer if you feel like being a bit prettier on your interview day.

Literary Lacquers has this color, which they call an "office holo."

I think any of these would work great! 

What's your approach to interview style, makeup or nail polish? Post in the comments!
