With OSPD, sometimes the smallest imperfections can take over your thoughts. At least until you fix them.

All my life, I've never painted my fingernails. Well, that's not true. I've tried to do it myself, and even gotten a manicure at the behest of friends. But it doesn't last. Within the first hour of the painting, sometimes less, I start to see flaws. A bump, a chip, a slight discoloration. It doesn't matter. It's not perfect.

So I try to fix it. This only makes it worse, a splotchy mess ensues. Finally, when I can't even look at my flawed manicure without seeing a big "FAIL" sign, I give up. I remove it all, and go back to bare nails.

This week, I'm trying to live with the chipped polish.
