What Nail Color to Wear for an Audition

Don’t Distract the Casting Directors with the Wrong Nail Color

As an actress, you really want to do your best at each audition. In order to accomplish that flawless performance, it is important to pay attention to every detail. How should you do your hair? What should you wear? How should your makeup look? No doubt you have many questions. And many answers can change depending on the part you are auditioning for. But what about your nail color? That seems like a minor detail, but wearing the right color on your nails can be very important.

Above all, it is important to remember that the most crucial part of the audition is your performance, not your appearance. That being said, it is important to wear a nail color that doesn’t stand out and make a statement. Whenever I’ve attended an audition that features my hands in any way, the casting director will ask for me to wear a nail color in the neutral color family. When I’ve gone out for hand modeling gigs, I’ve been specifically asked to wear “Ballet Slippers” by essie.

Being a working actress, herself, Candace Kita has had the same experiences. She thinks it is crucial to have a very specific nail length with the right color. So, she is here to show you the right nail color to wear to keep you from having a bad audition and the right length to keep your nails for the audition to be about your performance.
