It seems to me that there is a tiny god of nails who demands some sacrifices every time a manicure is made.The sacrifice might be either a tiny one, like a cut nail, or a significant one like totally ruined nail polish. It depends on the god’s mood and, I believe, on the extent on one;s patience. The more you hurry, the more the god of nails will take from your manicured nails.  And it does not really matter, how thick is the l nail polish layer or how long you blew on your perfect nails. If you are in a hurry, you pay the god some disrespect and will be punished eventually or forgiven… It depends on… I really have no idea what 🙂
