Things that happen as soon as I put on nail varnish

I love to paint my nails but I don't do it as often as I would like, mainly because I don't have the time. Not the time that it takes to paint the nails, which is just a few minutes, but the time that it takes for them to dry! As soon as I've finished painting them, something inevitably happens which means that they are ruined.


* I need the toilet. Even if I went just before I started.

* Someone needs a snack - even just taking a bowl or plate out of the cupboard can be hazardous.

* A delivery arrives that needs to be opened. It's a risk just picking the key from the hook to open the front door let alone sliding fingers under the flap of an envelope. 

* I need to send an e-mail or do something else which requires typing. I always think that typing is a safe activity as it's only the bottoms of my fingers that touch the keys, but that's not the case.

* I need to open a can or tin. Those pesky ring pulls have ruined my nails even hours after I've painted them!

* The house suddenly looks dirty. There is either a spill or some crumbs that are bothering me or I want to catch up on a bit of regular housework.

* My feet get cold and I forget that I've just painted my toe nails so automatically put on my slippers or a pair of socks.

* I pick up a book to read and my fingers accidentally slide between the pages. 

I've found that in order to keep my perfect nails the only way is to sit in front of the television for a couple of hours and sit still with my hands laid out in front of me which is very rarely practical!

  1. hehehe! This did make me chuckle. This is why I don't paint my nails because they never usually last long enough to dry properly before they're ruined.


I love reading your comments!
