I have a slightly random question - When you paint your nails do you start with your thumb or pinky nail first? I don't know why but that randomly popped in my head the other day while I was doing my nails. I don't even think about painting my nails while doing them, if I had a good non-streaking polish I could do it with my eyes closed. I realized I always start with my pinky and work to my forefinger, move to the other hand and do the same then I do both thumbs when I'm done. I wonder how long I've been doing that, it seems kind of silly.

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday!
xoxo

  1. I love this design, the green is absolutely lovely too (I'm really digging khaki at the moment and I was just thinking I needed a khaki nail polish). I usually do my thumb first and then work towards my pinky, and then change hands. I guess it doesn't matter how you do it as long as you paint them all!

  2. I LOVE that polka dot polish! Such a cool idea.
    I start from my forefinger and then out to my pinky, and thumbs last. Is that weird?!

    1. Yeah, I feel like it would be difficult to start from your forefinger. Like I would end up smearing it while working on the others.

    2. This might be why I am constantly smudging my nails... I will try pinky first next time!

  4. I always start with my thumb and work to my pinky, because I think that the biggest nail takes longer to dry or something. That's probably nonsense tho :)

    1. Haha! At least you have some logic behind why you paint the way you paint.

  5. Love those! The glitter kind of looks like paint spatters. Awesome!

    I always start with my left thumb! :D

  6. I think I start with my thumb, but I'm not sure. I don't even think about it so I couldn't tell you unless I actually started painting.

    I love that speckly nail varnish- It's like an easter egg!

  7. I don't paint my nails very often but I do it that order too. I think it's so that my hand doesn't drag over the wet parts.

  8. I always start with my right thumb, do that hand, then do my left hand, again starting with the thumb. I never thought about doing it a different way.

    Why do you leave your thumbs for last? Is it just a thing you do or is there an actual purpose?

  13. I always do them randomly and when I look at my nails after I think I'm done, I almost ALWAYS forget ONE nail. I should do them in order from now one.

    I love the speckled effect, like a birds egg!!

  16. I'm right handed, and I start with my left pinky to thumb, then right thumb to pinky ;). Kind of like reading I guess, left to right! How fun to learn all the different ways people paint their nails :)

  17. I always start with my ring finger, it just seems the easiest haha!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like totally random questions! :) I start with the pinky, first right hand, then left.

  20. I always start with my pointer finger then work towards my pinky, and do my thumb last!

    I know it sounds odd, but I usually paint with my non-dominant hand first.. I’ve been doing that for as long as i can remember!

  21. I really love this design; it seems really unusual. The grey is not the sort of colour I would usually paint my nails but I love this. I may have to try it out myself. I've never thought about it before but I think I always do my thumb last because I have to change the position of my hand and it would feel wrong not spreading my hand out on my desk when I was about to paint my nails.

  22. I start with the pinky, then work to the middle. Keeps me from accidentally touching the others along the way. Although I think there's something to your thing with the thumb, I just don't know why. Perhaps I'll have to try it!

  23. These are lovely! ♥
    I think I start with my middle finger and work it to the sides. (weird habit I guess)

    ReplyDelete
  24. This nail design is so pretty! I have yet to try this design, and just love the specks you've added! :)

    Oh, and I always start painting from my index finger (I'm a bit weird that way) and then I do my thumb last. Isn't that odd?

  25. I love that polka dot polish! I've never heard of Nubar, will definitely be checking their range out.

    ReplyDelete
  26. yup, that's what i do. my right hand pinky through index, and then left hand pinky through index. then i do my right thumb, then left thumb. i'm a righty, so i do my right hand first so i a) don't have paint on the left nails to mess up yet, and b) i am more apt to make a mistake on the right hand so if i want to completely start over, i am just starting anyway. i use my thumbs to clean around edges, so i do them last after wiping them off.

  27. haha, I usually start with my ring finger!! I think it's my prettiest shaped nail so the polish always looks best on it. So I like to start there. (is it weird to have a favorite nail???)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I start with my pinky and work toward my thumb, so I don't bump the others while polishing.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thumb! And I adore those nails!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hmmm I never thought about that! I usually start at my index or middle finger and go towards my thumb, then to my pinky. I love this triangle design and I've done a couple because they look so good!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I start with pinky and then go till thumb. And to the other hand the same. On pinky and ring finger I can test the nail polish formula, I can try it but for rest of nails I need to be perfect. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have no idea which finger or even which hand I start with.

    ReplyDelete
  33. left hand thumb to pinky then right hand thumb to pinky.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I never thought of the nail-painting order before! I start with left pinky and work my way to the thumb, then left thumb and work my way to the pinky. Left to right, the whole way haha!
