putting on nail polish is harder than it sounds

I'm putting on nail polish to day for my costume for the stilyagi party (American corporate capitalist warrior person). It's not as easy as you might think. I remember when I was a kid it was dificult and I kind of figured that when you get to be an adult, this magically gets easier. But it doesn't. Well, your nails do get a little larger, but otherwise it's just as tricky.

I remember things as I go. Start in the middle, then do the sides. try to keep your finger level, put it on evenly. don't mess with it or it won't dry smooth. lots of blowing.

okay, I took a break to go visit Hope, who loaned me a fabulous pair of boots and a wonderful frilly shirt. She told me it takes about half an hour for a coat to dry, so I turned on the TV and made myself a late lunch to help my patience.

I had to re-do four of my nails from scraping them against things. It isn't easy. I can see why women who want their nails like this all the time hire it done.
