Beautiful manicured nails, perfectly toned in a blood burgundy are an absolutely fantasy if you're attempting the job at home. The initial collection of supplies from their respective drawers in the house all moved to a temporary station, the glass coffee table in front of the television followed by the focused determination to put on a Netflix movie and nail it, literally. This is all inevitably followed by a fury so great due to the polish that refuses to dry shifting on your nails like the top layer of sand in a breeze. What should be a beautiful smooth, glossy surface immune to the world's vast edges, walls and pockets i instead textured mush with wisps of blanket fur or maybe it's a cotton bud. Two painstaking hours of patience in front of a mediocre movie with nothing to show for your efforts. As the fury takes a hold and a slow motion montage of flying furniture and abusive spittle hurtle across a movie set room you can't help but wonder how the beauticians do it. Are they the modern day witches done with turning people into newts and on to applying impossible perfect nail polish so that we sit at home falsely believing in our abilities, a new kind of torture. If that were true then perhaps a lot of our frustrations are the fault of these beautician witches and their magic hands and charming accents.
