Tip 2: Pay attention to the little things -- like nails Many of our sources say nails are important to your interview look -- with chipped polish being the big no no. "I wouldn't refuse to hire someone outstanding for [having chipped nails], but if I were deciding between two equally qualified candidates, the chipped polish would be a deal breaker. It sends the message that the candidate doesn't put a lot of thought into her presentation and what's appropriate," says a website editor.
Another agrees saying, "chipped nails or runny mascara shows me you aren't a person with good attention to detail. Perhaps also that you aren't a person who thinks two steps ahead, and that's not good."
Tip: "To play it safe" when it comes to your nails, the editor recommends wearing a clear coat or a sheer soft pink hue. This way, if you do happen to chip your nails on the way to your interview (it happens!), the chips will be much less noticeable.
