Nail Your Job Interview: Let Your Shade Make Your First Impression
2019 is just around the corner, so if you’re thinking of a new career, it never hurts to start planning today! There are many stressful things involved with switching jobs or even landing your first one. That’s why we’re here to make sure that your nails are looking tip-top during your interview because you only get one chance at a first impression.
Read our tips below that outline the perfect shade for the role that you’re trying to land. We have suggestions on nail colors to wear on job interviews, as well as corporate nail colors and much more.
If you don’t know the exact type of vibe or style the job has already, then we suggest neutral nail colors for work. French manicures and nudes will never steer you wrong. If you want to be a bit more playful, try out dark shades that are maroon, deep navy, or even green.
If you’re applying for a leadership role, it’s important that you’re wearing business appropriate nail colors. Leadership roles allow you the leeway to be bold, just like OPI’s beloved figurehead, Suzi, so try some classic reds like "OPI Red” or “Suzi - The First Lady of Nails”. If the environment you’re in is a bit more buttoned up, experiment with shades like “Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around” or “Tanacious Spirit.”
If the role that you’re looking at is focused on group communication, then have your nail shades signify that you’re a team player! Let your enthusiasm shine with shades like “My Solar Clock Is Ticking” or “You Sustain Me.” If you want to stick to more conservative nail colors, wear shades like “Staying Neutral” or “Machu Peach-U.”
Looking for a role that lets you dive into data and analyze the results? Then we have a hypothesis on the shades that are perfect for a career in Research. For shades with a bit of sass, wear “Worth A Pretty Penne” or “Stick To Your Burgundies.” If you want shades that stick to the facts, try colors like “Lisbon Wants Moor OPI” and “Bubble Bath.”
Are you a master of your domain, and are looking to bring your professional expertise to a new role? One expert to another, please trust our opinion on appropriate nail shades for work. If the vibe is creative, wear shades like “The Latest & Slatest” and “Alpaca My Bags.” If it’s corporate, try out shades like “Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around” and “Worth a Pretty Penne”.
Have you been plotting this career move for six months? Do you dictate your major choices using Trello boards and Gantt charts? Then you already had planned for your designation as a Planner. Experiment with shades like “Barefoot in Barcelona” and “Check Out The Old Geysirs” or for a more conservative look try shades like “Suzi - The First Lady of Nails” or “Machu Peach-u.”

We almost don’t want to hem you in, but if you’re applying for a job in a more corporate environment, then we suggest going with shades like “Stick to Your Burgundies” and “Suzi - The First Lady of Nails.” At a place that embraces you for you? Wear “Chicago Champagne Toast” and “CIA = Color Is Awesome.”
If you’re the person on the team who mends fences and imbues harmony, you’re probably perfect for a role that is communication focused. Make the most of your ability to get others to cooperate and wear shades like “OPI Red” and “Tanacious Spirit.” If you’re looking for something a bit more conservative, try shades like “You Sustain Me” and “Staying Neutral.”
