While I was drafting up yesterday’s post about Dollish Polish’s Go Luigi!, I kept staring at my nails and debating how work-appropriate some of my more glittery looks are. While I personally adore glittery and colourful nail polish, sparkly eyeshadow or blush, red lips as much as nude lips, I often feel hindered by my professional job. I should point out that I do not work in a law firm or a suit-type environment; in fact, my office is quite relaxed and offers a casual dress code; yet I sometimes look at my nails before running out the door in the morning and wonder if I should have removed my polish.
Yesterday’s post with my two-toned Go Luigi! is already off in favour of my next blog post’s colour, but would you wear this to work?
…before I added the sparkly The Many Shades of Mr. Grey:
And how do you feel about this look? Office-appropriate?
Sometimes I even wonder if my simpler polishes are “appreciated” in the workplace:
Thanks to my polish (and beauty products) addiction, I am always seeking my next purchase. Many times I want colours that are different, unlike anything sold in a beauty store, but I purchase and wear it, write a post about it, and then decide it’s not “safe” to wear in “real-life.”
I would love to know how my fellow polish lovers and non-polish-lovers alike feel about this dilemma.
Do you wear some polishes only to blog about them, then immediately remove before your work-day? Do you have weekend and weekday-specific polishes? Or are you bold enough to wear the bright and glittery confections, no matter the place?
