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!
