Now I’m not complaining as such, I know that a lot of ladies really struggle to grow their nails nice and long (I’m gonna do a nail care series to try to help you out) but I had a bit of a panic moment today because of mine !
When your nails get to a certain length, it’s really hard to get coins out of supermarket caddies (US translation : Shopping Carts – out here in France we often have to put a coin in them to use them, because we’re all thieves, ya know…), because you can’t get enough purchase, and the coin only sticks out a few millimetres – that’s hardly a big deal, and usually my bloke is on hand to help. In the worst case, it’s hardly a big waste – actually it might be handy for the next person to come along who forgot their coin.
But nowadays, a lot of cash points (US: ATMs) have devices on them that are supposed to help secure them or something (which cover the slot and leave it less exposed so conmen can’t add scanners to them to copy your card as you put it in), but this means your card only sticks out by a few millimetres. So this evening I went to the cash point on the way home, and couldn’t for the life of me get the damn card out ! I nearly had to ask a passing stranger to help !! You know, it really is a panic moment when the machine starts beeping furiously at you…
So what do I do? Do I cut them? Apart from the little tear I repaired recently, they’re feeling pretty strong and healthy, so I kinda feel like that would be a waste. The other option I can think of is to carry tweezers around with me for those “just in case” moments… But that would be lame, wouldn’t it? Would a little pair of pliers be more dignified ?
I know, I know, you don’t want to hear about my first world problems! More about nail polish 🙂
I totally love Ozotics! Literally the only problem I can think of with them is that they number the polish instead of naming it. Which means that every damn time I order a bottle I have to go through my order history to make sure I don’t already have it, haha !
744 should have been called “Perfect Periwinkle”, in my opinion 🙂
