You guys. I am sort of okay with Pinterest. It keeps me up on all the latest trends, like photos of painted fingernails clutching at a bottle of polish as if trying to crush the thing.
Painting nails is not just for preteen girls anymore, but has become yet another way for adults to express our unique, snowflake identities; though unlike getting a haircut every two months or picking out an outfit, perfecting complex designs on a quarter-inch canvas can take hours to complete and cause untold frustration when the cat jumps up and brushes against the wet polish, leaving smudgy cat hairs in its wake. Not that that has ever happened to me. I don't even own a cat.
Some have reported cramps resulting from posing fingers in a manner most conducive to showing off nails to others. If someone is running around with a camera, snapping pictures willy-nilly, one must always be prepared, with all nails clumped together.
