Should I Wear Nail Polish to a Job Interview?

Question Posted Monday August 30 2010, 6:26 pm

I am going for another job interview tomorrow. I was laid off last month and things got tough so I had to come back and stay with my mom until I can get another job. Anyway, I had my outfit laid out and asked my mom what she thought of it. She said it looked very professional for the job and that I'd look great. Then she said I should take my nail polish off before the interview to look more serious about the job. My nail polish is pink right now. Is it inappropriate to have painted nails with nailpolish when showing up for an interview?

i went for an job workshop once, and i think you should take it of. your nails should be clean and smart. if you want nail polish put the clear nail polish. the requirements for some jobs is that your nails are clear and short so thats already an important factor to take into consideration. Even earings should be small for the interview, hair must be up, not too much make up. grown up and professional. God bless for the interview. tell me how it goes.
Fingers crossed**

I think you should look it up online and look for how to dress up for job interviews and if you can't find anything then I think you should a red nail polish because that looks proffesional and make it shiny. I hope I helped.!

Clear nail polish is never, ever unprofessional. Just do your nails that day with something colorless, than revert when the interview is done.

What colour of pink is it?

If it's a bright pink, then it will look a little bit unprofessional.

However, inconspicuously manicured nails look lovely and professional. I like to keep mine the same pink as the lower part of the nail. Just make sure that it's a very natural colour, that it's not the slightest bit chipped, and that your nails aren't too long.
