While I love having bright polish on my toes, I can’t remember the last time I painted my fingernails. It was probably back in my daughter’s budding nail technician days when she slathered 8 different colors all over my hands. Yeah, that was fun.

After reading that Sarah Jessica Parker gets her nails buffed instead of polished, I started asking for that on the rare occasion that I get a manicure.
