It's actually somewhat convenient, because then I don't feel like I'm basically incapacitated for too long. But then, inevitably, I eventually need to leave the house... and realize only half my fingernails are painted. Awkward.
So then I scramble to finish painting the other half before I head out, hoping like heck I don't mess up the new nails. It's all very logical and efficient. Hah.
Anyway, I decided to go for rainbow pastel with silver glitter for my Sugar Rush collection! The bonus to glitter is that if you do mess up a bit in the process, you can always cover it with a nice, pretty chunk of glitter. :)

One thing I will say is that I always use a base and top coat when I do bother painting my nails. If I'm going to make the effort, it sure as heck had better last more than one day! Although I just realized that I've been using the Seche base coat as a top coat. Haha. It seems to work, but I should probably buy their dry fast top coat. :)
Here they are in action!
