What color nail polish should I wear to an interview at an office job? My nails are short.

Report as

Depends on the job. If it's a creative atmosphere anything goes. If conservative then a pale neutral color. A couple of choices would be Metro chic by Sephora for opi or Demure Vixen by Essie. Both pretty easy to find. Good luck!

I would go with a pale color and not something bright like red. Since your nails are short, you can skip the nail color also. Make sure your nails are neatly trimmed. Good luck on your interview! I hope you get it.

Maybe a soft color to match what you are wearing.

Dependant on the job but short manicured dark colors look good too if the nails have a little length like the models, actresses etc... Are wearing, nothing wrong with being trendy as long as it goes with your attire and like I said are nice and filed and not too short! Doesn't have to be clear or a light color unless that fits your personality! Good luck anyhoo!!!

Most important tip is to bring attention to yourself and what you have to say as a potential employee. For example, use the quick look in the mirror test then eliminate the first accessory you notice. To that affect, make sure your nails are nicely trimmed and clean.

Definitely never wear red nail polish OR clothing to a job interview. Clear polish or a pink color should make a great first impression.

I would get a cure very light pink to make it look natural

I think you should go with a clear colour, it makes your nails look pretty but not gaudy so it is still professional =) good luck for the interview!

It all depends on the job! IN general you should go with a dulled down color that is not chipped at all. Make sure that your hands are nice and clean.

Maybe just clean up your nails
You don't always have to have nail polish on. It will look more professional.
Good luck on the interview!
