I'm a disaster applying polish. I get it all over my cuticles and fingers. And usually, I don't care. There are times, though, that this messy painting has caused me grief. My usual method for removing the extra polish is to take a shower and let the steam take care of the bits on my skin. I've recently come to the decision that perhaps I should be a little more careful initially when painting my nails. So, my goal is to gain some semblance of control over the brush. This means no more rushing. I'll keep you updated on how this goes.
