I work in a smart office, everything else I am wearing is completely office-appropriate but on my hands I have Broadway imPRESS nails in Lovestruck on.

Does anyone think this is wrong?

i work in a small restaurant & love rocking nail art (& gorgeous nails in general) since my hands are in customers eyesight quite a bit.


my friend actually got a job at a car company & where she works, she can't wear nail polish at all (along with anything scented; they have a list of certain deodorant, etc). i was like........................yeah, couldn't work there. (it's a chemical issue)

I know what you mean, I love wearing nail art but I work in HR and often have to hold very serious meetings at short notice either with employees or the CEO, so I have to choose carefully what I wear. There are no rules against it but if I was, for example, telling someone they no longer have a job I don't feel it's appropriate to have funky / funny / glittered nails out of respect for the situation. I'd love to wear what I wanted though!

I think it depends on where you work and what you do. As Tori suggested, if you hold a position of some responsibility and people expect serious (e.g., a professional like a lawyer or physician), then I would think twice. Personally, I am envious of the men and women at the salon I go to... they are fashion forward, edgy and fun every day ! But that's also expected of them, so I suppose it works both ways :)

PS I'm a professional and feel obligated to look a certain way. But I definitely explore my options on weekends !

I dont have a job but I do at school and I get a lot of positive attention. I feel like its something to set you apart from others. (:

I work in a preschool with kids so they all go crazy over nail art, so thankfully I'm free to go as crazy as I want. ;)
