I might not be an expert on polishing my nails so that clean up isn't necessary, but normally I don't have mishaps.
There are however two colors that ALWAYS intimidates med and makes me paint too close to the cuticles and sometimes the sides - not on all nails of course but usually one or two of them.
It's black including the super blackened shades and a true red cream - but not any variations of red except the super blackened ones!
It's ALWAYS on my swatch hand, rarely on my right hand (I'm right handed), so I realize it's just something going on in my head, YAY at least something goes on ;)
When I was young in the 60's most available colors were shades of red, and I sucked at applying polish, so it might be a reminiscence from my youth - even if it doesn't explain why it happens with black!
SO am I alone - or does this happen to you with the same colors over and over again..?
If yes - what are your Nemesis colors?
