Q & A : How long does it take you to …

do your nails?
Do you clean and push your cuticles everytime you change polish?
If doing swatches for a couple of nail polishes (full set/collection), do you still apply base/top coat?

I just realized that I have been spending a lot of time doing my nails lately. I try to do them as perfect as I can (and failing most of the time! LOL), that’s why I don’t feel like changing everyday. But I have a handful of polishes now and there are still some that I have not used so I feel pressured to use them all. On top of that, I feel guilty of buying new ones (its hard to resist, especially if you have enabler friends…yes, Sol, Pam, Smile and Mindy…I’m talking to you)

I’m rambling, I know. I kinda lost my point there. LOL. I just want to know how you do it. I’d love to hear from you guys!

    @Original_Wacky, wow! 15 minute mani? Wish I could do that. And of course, I would love the two hour break…but I’d enjoy it more if somebody else was doing the mani for me…total relaxation! Right?

    Hmm, I’d say that if I hurry, I can get a decent mani done in 15 minutes. If I take my time and do the whole shebang, it’s more like 2 hours. I definitely lean more toward the two hour mark, I really enjoy the time spent, and it relaxes me. It’s also one of the only times I can just sit and not be running around doing chores.

    I’m going to have to check I guess. Maybe it does take me a lot longer than I think. 🙂

    Hi Susie!Thanks for dropping by. I’ll definitely join your giveaway. Will post in a while. BTW, an hour… that’s the whole thing right? I mean cleaning, pushing, buffing, painting etc?

    @Mindy, 80 Mins… I guess that’s just about right. Still.. I feel its taking me too long. 😀
