Happiness is... freshly painted nails!
Those of you who are particular about your nail game being on fleek all the time, already know that the struggle to maintain your nails is real! As much as you love your nails, maintaining them is no easy feat. And yet the end result is worth all the effort!
If you are often complimented for the striking shape of your nails or your choice of nail colour or your at-home manicure skills, then you have definitely mastered the art of “nailing” it and you are definitely one of us!
So if you too are a girl obsessed with their nails, you are totally going to relate to this. Read on...

You have no room for new nail polish, but you buy it anyway
Your mom is literally tired of asking you to STOP buying more nail paints, but… it’s the ONE shade you were looking for everywhere! And you’ve finally found it… *sorry mom, cannot resist* (feeling guilty, not!).
Chipped nail polish makes you anxious
What’s the downside of painting your nails in your favourite shade? Chipping! When you’re putting in hours perfecting your nails, it can be frustrating to see them chip sooner than you expected. That feeling of “need to fix it ASAP” creeps in!
You don’t leave the drug store without buying a new bottle of polish
Nothing attracts you more than the nail polish stash at the drug store. And, you obviously cannot resist buying a new bottle of polish, because… obsession! Yeah, we get it!
Changing your nail colour is a weekend ritual (if not daily)
Often get compliments from friends and colleagues about how perfect your nails look every Monday? Well, hard-work always pays! You know you’ve put in time and effort to make your nails stand out and now it’s all worth it.
You totally have a nail-inspo board on Pinterest
Your Pinterest board is where all your nail-inspo comes from. Whenever you run out of manicure ideas, you already have new ones waiting in your Pinterest board.
You experience major nail envy when you spot chic nails
No matter how good your nails look; there will always be someone out-doing you in your nail game. And, when you stumble upon nails that look way more attractive than yours, you cannot help but get jealous!
You own 10 different shades of your favourite colour
Not that you care! If you spot a similar shade in the next store, nothing can stop you from buying it. You are proud of your nail polish collection, aren’t you?
You know exactly which polish will need more than one coat and which won’t
You are so used to doing your own manicure that from the consistency and shade of your nail polish, you’ll know whether it requires a double coat or not. And that’ll make life easier!
When you’re done painting your nails perfectly only to find out tiny bubbles have formed
Worst feeling ever! All that effort is wasted when you find bumps and bubbles on your freshly painted nails. *Aaaarrrghhh… why me*
Even if you go awry with one stroke, you don’t mind starting all over again
It’s better to put in some more time than roam around with untidy nails. If your hand gets shaky or you ruin your polish, you don’t mind wiping it off and beginning all over again.
