At least I don't do acrylic…
I think my cousin Diana got me going on it, I was probably about 11. She was older and cooler and probably the only other family member with curly hair, so i was down for whatever.
I don't see what's wrong with a little nail polish here and there, or everysingleday. It improves fine motor skills, helps muscle memory in the carpal tunnels, looks pretty slammin' too. In fact, is it even a vice? It's just something I do on a fairly daily basis, I just think that years of roommates have made me feel weird about the frequency with which I do it. They all come around eventually, though, seeking my advice on which color file to use on brittle nails, which is the best valued topcoat.
No, painting my nails is not a vice. Maybe I should be writing about my love for Vick's Vapo-Rub.
