The Working Girl: NSFW Nails

Don’t get me wrong. I love nail polish and nail art. I’m all about artistic expression. However, if the person who signs your check doesn’t like glittered claw nails, then you have to make adjustments…or find a different profession.

My rule of thumb is to wear basic colors until you see what the office environment is like. But there’s still a caveat: even if your employer allows cute nail design, beware that your choice of nail color can give the wrong impression….just like the rest of your attire.

The following photos are nails in the relatively safe color pink. However, if you’re in your 20s, it may scream bimbo, party girl, or dipstick.

Even if you work in the fashion industry in any capacity, be mindful of the culture of the company you work for.

Nasty Gal: anything goes.

Nordstrom: Reflect the department you’re working in.  TBD or BP? Anything goes. Handbags or fragrance?

Trendy, but sophisticated.

Target Internship Program: More conservative colors. I don’t care what the manager has on.
