Nail Polish Suitable for J-O-B Interviews

Posted on: May 10, 2013

This week for me has been about finding a J-O-B. that got me thinking about appropriate nail polish choices for jobs.

A job interview for me would be an ultra professional setting, and for those types of interviews I would go with one of my old stand bys: butter LONDON Yummy Mummy. This a great nude on me and gives the mannequin hand look. It also makes my nails look to be well groomed.

Another great choice for a professional setting would be Jana from Zoya. I think Jana is very close to SH CinC and is one of those gray/beige colors that certainly would not be offensive or even distracting during an interview.

Depending on what you were wearing CHANEL Skyline could be a great nude. I think the focus of an interview for a professional job would be the fact that you are put together from your wardrobe, make up and nail color choices.

Now, I’m going on a limb here, but I can see an exquisite black, fitted suit, great toned down make up, and with just a pop of color on your nails tells the interviewers that you have confidence. If you are just starting out in the business world I would not suggest this red but if you are an established professional I think this CHANEL Dragon conveys the message of confidence like nothing else can. Of course, I would never wear this in an initial interview. I would break out Dragon on the 2nd or 3rd interview. And happily so!

Again, depending on what you are wearing and the position you are interviewing for, I likeZoya Drew as a conservative, rosy colored polish with a bit of shimmer but not enough to take away from your entire look.

A few of the things I take into consideration before choosing my polish for an interview is: What I will be wearing.. A dark suit can be perfect with the nude Yummy Mummy and that would my first choice. Especially if this a first interview.
#2 to consider is the type of work you are applying for. For me that is an accounting position, usually with larger companies. Again, the dark, fitted perfectly suit with Yummy Mummy is perfect but then when called for the 2nd interview, which is very common for my “job types” I would probably wear a linen suit, again fitted perfectly and with this linen suit I might choose CHANEL Skyline, Zoya Drew, or even Jana from Zoya.. This 2nd interview might also be the time to break out the CHANEL Dragon red. It just depends.
#3 item to consider on all interviews is to know your audience. I applied for a job as an office manager for our county fair board. I was interviewed by the county fair board of 12 people, mostly farmers and people in the agriculture community. I was entirely over-dressed for that interview. The girl who went in behind me was dressed in jeans, she got the job.
#4 don’t be afraid to be yourself. I would never go to a job interview with no nail polish. I’m going to wear my nail polish so I don’t want them to have expectations that I wouldn’t. Does that make sense?
#5 I always cut my nails down to ‘nubs’ before a serious interview. A serious interview, and for a job I really want.

Naked from Deborahh Lippmann is another great choice for a nude “interview type polish”. Naked and Yummy Mummy are my go to interview polishes.

There are lots of choices for nude nail polish but for me ultimately it is butter LONDON Yummy Mummy.

Wish me luck in my hunt for a job. It is going to take some time and be full of rejections. I realize at my age and experience level I have “priced myself out of the market” but I think I have a plan to overcome those issues. I will, of course, keep you posted in my hunt and how it ends up. With a great J-O-B!! I hope I have helped someone in their choice of polish for a job interview, and I hope anyone out there looking for a job nothing but great success !

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
