Are white nails unprofessional? I’m speaking on a high-profile panel (via Zoom) day after tomorrow and I want a color that will pop (b/c why bother otherwise?) but still go with everything (choosing among a blue, yellow, pink, or red jacket). Also considering a light pink/peach nail color. FWIW, my nails are quite short. Like former violinist short. Thanks!

I think white looks great! Peach/pink definitely a safe option and my go to.

Gorgeous!! 😍 The panel and my nails were great! I ended up going with the peach/pink option and they looked neutral enough to go with my yellow blazer. Plus the former federal judge on the panel also had pink nails (like bright pink) so that was fun too! Thanks for your follow up 😁

What’s your complexion? I have a medium-dark skin tone and find light pink and peach is much more flattering than white. Still pops without being too stark. That said, my paralegal is very fair skinned and white looks great on her. Good luck on the panel.

I think white can totally be professional if it’s the right white. Usually that means it has a very slight color undertone, which softens it, rather than being stark white.

What about a grey/green situation? Essie used to make a great color. Concrete jungle maybe? Or one or two shades darker or lighter than your skin tone? I’d stay away from brights, too dark and white.

A senior associate once complemented me on my white nails, which I had been a little self conscious about beforehand (essie blanc) and I have olive skin, so they pop
