I don't even have time to do my nails, clip, clip then a quick dry clear coat, that's it.
I take my nail varnish off for work, and that is the only time they are bare.
They do look stained though.
Even though I always start with a clear coat...
It was against uniform policy to wear nail varnish at work but at times when I was strengthening my nails I did use clear varnish. To disguise the fact I used a clear matt varnish as top layer. With my job I was not involved in invasive procedures, except for a while when I was assigned to blood gasses, but as my work was defined as clinical uniform policy applied.
