My friend Sarah once told me, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” I have hung on to every word of this since she said it three years ago. This is probably why I found it amusing my boss sent me an article titles “8 ways women can get ahead in the workplace” as a variation of the phrase was in the article. (I figured the list was in no particular order as this was #8.)
I met a dear friend last week for happy hour, and she told me she is now making a conscious effort to look her best every day. She’s (trying) to put her make-up on at home, rather than in the work parking lot, and she’s making sure her nails are painted every week. I commend her for her efforts. I know that when I walk into the office every day, appearance is 9/10 of the law. (Yes, even/especially in an accounting firm!)
I’m taking a page out of her book in attempting to make sure my nails look their best every week. This week, I took my other Zoya polish out for a test drive. Let me just say, Harley, you are AMAZING! The grey meshes with the silver perfectly. And just like Kylie, the color is subtle with that ever so slight hint of shimmer. The shade is perfect for every outfit in my closet! (And did I mention that even after 6 days didn’t have a single chip?) While I do find the color works best with deep, rich color pallets such as burgundy or hunter green, it does also work well with the bright colorful pallets such as magenta or turquoise. It has earned a spot in my regular nail routine, without question.
What color are your nails this week? Try to keep that phrase in the back of your mind – it can change your life!
