Answering a Reader Question #145

Anonymous Wrote:

Hi Dania! I just have a random question for open calls- what should I do with my nails? Should I paint them a colour, or is it better to just use a nude polish or leave them bare? Thanks! 

Hey, Anonymous! I would recommend leaving your nails bare or using a clear polish. The most important thing is to make sure they are well groomed--no hangnails, dirt/grime under your fingernails, etc. You don't want a funky nail polish color or fake acrylic nails to become a distraction. As long as your nails are clean and presentable, that's what matters. The same goes for your toes if you wear open-toed shoes. I personally always keep my toes freshly pedicured with white, French tips. :-)

So keep it simple and you'll be good to go!

Hello Dania, I love your blog! I am going to an open call in a little while, and the agency didn't specify about bringing shapshots, but I figured it'd be better to be safe than sorry. All it said was that professional photos weren't necessary. So should I bring them in the photo envelope, or in a folder, or a binder? And does it matter what size the pictures are? Like should I make a picture a full page, or the typical photo size? Thanks!!
