What to do...

when the Internet is down at work and you are slapped in the face with the realization of just how completely dependent you are on the Internet.

Step #1:
Find random nail polish in purse.

Step #2:
Say thank you to the petite jewel colored bottle for not breaking since you have no idea how long ago you abandoned the little bugger in the dark depths of your work bag.

Step #3:
Weigh the risks of beginning a nail polishing journey without the supporting cast of nail polish remover and cotton balls.

Step #4:
Choose to forget the time you embarked on the same path prior to a meeting and had not only red nails, but red fingers, too. Very professional.

Step #5:
Apply 3 too many coats in order to achieve an even application.

Step #6:
In effort to dry 4 layers of paint, call on your trusty space heater who has been feeling neglected since the end of spring anyway.

Step #7:
Decide the color is too dark for summer and commence picking off of nail polish

Step #8:
Remember that half picked off nail polish will look even worse than a too dark color and crappy application.

Step #9:
Spend the rest of Internet free time resisting the urge to pick at nail polish.

The end.


  1. Haha this is too funny! - I've been through this exact same process on more than one occassion!


  2. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping our internet goes down at work tomorrow. I need to update this manicure! :)

  3. Ha! Great idea. When I worked for a (very) small company our internet connection used to go down all the time. Since we were a web development company that was a pretty big problem. But my desk was always super duper clean by the time our connection came back up, so that was a plus. : )

  4. I always peel nail polish off. Its like a sick game I play after I put it on for hours

  5. Hysterical! I paint my nails all the time at work (mostly to prevent them from chipping because I'm FORCED, by all the work I have to do, to sit still).
