Outerwear

As already mentioned, you will need to decide on an appropriate outfit in relation to the type of job for which you are. Aim for simple elegance; you do not want to appear sloppy to a prospective employer. However it is not a good move to make your interviewer feel you are significantly better dressed than they are! A smart suit, ideally with a skirt and not pants. Yes we are in the twenty first century, but some employers are old-fashioned! If you don't like the advice, ask yourself how badly you really want the job? If wearing a skirt gives you a fractional edge over another interviewee then it will have been worth the effort.

Perfume

I'd recommend minimal perfume. A scent which you may like might be overpowering to someone else if they happen to have a really keen sense of smell, and some people are actually allergic to certain perfumes and smells. Less is certainly more in this instance.

Nails

Clean nails are of course essential, and natural varnish or a restrained color is your best bet. There are very few occupations where the possession of long talons will either impress or be an asset; they can result in the wrong keys being hit on keyboards, and in a health care environment for example they can even be a health hazard. Short and neat is best.
