Scratch that Itch

I’ve been painting my nails for the past month, and so far it’s been a pretty nice little relaxing thing I can do once a week.  I haven’t worn nail polish for maybe eight years though because I stopped wearing it while I was working my first real job at Blockbuster Video.  I use the term “real” loosely.  When you work at Starbucks you’re not supposed to wear nail polish, lest a piece of you polish fly off your nail and into a latte for some unsuspecting sucker to ingest!
Since the bux I’ve just been too lazy to paint my nails, but now that OPI has become pretty standard for being a reliable nail lacquer, I’ve been experimenting more with colors.
So after a string of very bright colors (yellow being the last) I decided to paint my nails with a cheapy Rimmel polish called “Pink Opal.”
Three coats later and I am stuck in that “can’t do anything with your hands at all or you will eff your nails and have to start all over” phase.  With OPI I think that phase lasts like 2 minutes, but I must have forgotten my cheaper polish application would need a good 10 minutes before I could do anything.
So I go to bed and I test my nails to see if I’ll get the dreaded “sheet crease” in any of the nails, but it feels good, so I think I’m okay.
Then I get an itch on my ass.  And I go deep, forgetting that I have just recently applied nail polish, and shouldn’t be excavating any itches until the next day, after the polish has had a chance to harden.  So I scratch, thus relieving my butt itch.
Then I notice that the polish on my index (re: scratching finger du jour) has pushed back from the sheer force of my scratching!  And I am out of nail polish remover!
So now I have to look at my index finger until I get more polish remover and know that I was ass-deep in scratches last night in bed.
I call it, “The Finger of Shame!”

    What a bummer! Hope no stank got caught up under the nail! *snicker* 😉

    OMG lmfao!

    It is true though, the OPI is good shit. I have ‘Big Apple Red’ that I use on my toes occasionally and I love it because it looks awesome with only ONE coat! For a red, that is amazing!

    I have issues with breaking my nails all the time so I’ve been using OPI Nail Envy and it’s pretty good too.

    ha ha ha ha! That’s funny because I do the exact same thing! I try to paint my nails before I watch a movie thinking I won’t do anything but sit on the couch for at least half an hour. Sometimes it works.

    OPI is truly where it’s at. I’ve tried to find China Glaze, but so far I’ve only found one place in Vancouver that sells it, and they only had 4 bottles, so not a big selection.

    Christine: I have a bright red from OPI too and mine only needed one coat as well! I almost pooped when I put it on because I was like, “How can this be so good with one coat?!!”

    Haha, that’s hilarious! Hope you were able to pick up some nail polish remover soon after…
