    My sister painted our step-dad's toe nails bright red as he lay snoring on the sofa. It didn't go over too well, but it was worth it to see him so pissed off.

    For a regular manicure, I do about 4 coats; basecoat, 2 coats of the nail lacquer colour, and topcoat. Sometimes I need more or less coats of the nail lacquer depending on how sheer it is.

    This is so stupid and pointless..it looks like a bunch of fake nails layered on top of each other, not polish.

    But mostly I wear nail foils. They require one layer of top coat over the foils.

    If the nail polish is opaque, then 2: color and top coat. If it's not opaque, then more color.

    I generally do not wear nail polish, however when I'm in a girly mood and decide to make my nails colourful I go for a double coat.

    I see women with manicures and it grosses me out. When I wear polish I feel like my fingers are suffocating.

    I don't wear nail polish because I am uncomfortable with it on me. This may sound wierd, but I can feel it on me and it feels heavy. Very uncomfortable. Same with rings and all jewelry, so I avoid all of it.
