I love the look of polished nails but you will rarely see me with my nails done. Why? Because I am way too obsessive about them if I do them myself and I just don't have it together enough to keep up with professional manicures. I enjoy getting them but I'm too lazy and cheap to go regularly. When I used to do my own nails I couldn't stand if they got the littlest mistake in them I had to do them over, and then I wanted to change the color just about every day. There couldn't be a bubble or a single little thing wrong or I'd have to do them over and I could never sit still long enough for the second coat to dry completely. I am just a big old hot mess when it comes to drying my nails. The last time I had a so called professional manicure the woman cut my cuticle and it bled a lot and hurt. I was worried it would get an infection but it didn't. I think I might have gone back but she didn't say she was sorry so that was it for her and after that I just didn't feel like looking for another spot.
