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?

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. [ NinjaNeer's advice column | Ask NinjaNeer A Question ]
