You’ve just painted your nails and then these things happen, disaster!
1. You have to search through your handbag
Where are my keys? Where is my phone? Where is all the stuff I need now?!
2. Needing the bathroom
Didn’t need it before, but now that your nails are wet and you’re vulnerable – all of a sudden you need to go!
3. Picking up things off a table
Let me just grab this change and 100% smudge my nails! (This is clearly why America deals in notes)
You want a snack…but wait, can’t really peel that orange, or open a packet of crisps. Eating anything with your hands is a no go.
5. Untangling earphones
Nails done. Time to unwind and listen to some music… but your earphones are tangled (again!) and the thought of undoing them is worse than doing a rubix cube!
6. Doing up a clasp
Your nails look perfect. You’re ready to head out and you want to add a cute bracelet or necklace…think again. Doing up this clasp will ruin everything!
7. Doing up a zip
(May or may not be related to the second on this list) but either way, it’s not happening without a major problem
8. Getting the urge to clean or tidy up
Mostly for those OCD cleaners – resist the urge to do any housework for a while. No taking the laundry out of the dryer, no scrubbing down the skirting boards. You’ll be saying goodbye to the dirt and your immaculate manicure
9. Your pet wants cuddles
They’re giving you the look, you know the “let’s play and totally mess up your nails” look. So cute, so hard to resist!
10. Opening these
The dreaded ring pull: designed to make life easier without the need for an opener…unless you care about your nails, that is. Then you’ll know they’re the absolute enemy!
Do you ever find yourself in any of these situations? Have you your own “just painted my nails dilemmas” to share?
