Getting to paint my nails is fun because I can't do it all that often. My nails have to be the right length and it has to be weeks since I last did so because the nail varnish makes my nails brittle so they need time to recover. Also, for my work I need to open and move a good deal of heavy plastic boxes with lots of impossible ridges and edges (who designs these things?!) that are hard on painted nails.

I have a few, mostly metallic varnish colours which I absolutely love. And what the heck, I usually don't care all too much for that, but they do make me feel pretty.
