    Gel nails and nail polish

    Every time I wear nail polish, they quickly chip to pieces and make me sad. I blame gloves. I haven't really worn nail polish in many years before nursing since I wore gloves in my old career, too.

    You must be the guy that said tonight was pretty quiet.

    Yes, especially when combined with a fine bottle of polyethylene glycol.

    In a panic

    Sorry I don't have advice for you. I married my husband immediately after nursing school because of insurance (not entirely, we'd been dating nearly 10 years). He got a new job so we moved, and in the 2 or so month period beteen the first and second, we had COBRA. The day after we moved, I ended up in the hospital for 10 days. I can't imagine what would have happened if we had decided there was no need in that short period. I'm really sorry for you guys. My brother and his wife were both given back injuries from a car accident (not their fault). Neither can work. It has been terrible for them. You will persevere, but it may not be pretty. I know it sounds silly, but you could also try to get donations from friends and family using something like ChipIn or something. It may not generate much, but I'm sure at times every little bit will help.

    Nurses wearing nail polish

    I stopped wearing nail polish at my research job where I had to wear gloves all the time. In my experience, gloves and nail polish don't work. Somehow the nail polish would get ruined. Perhaps I was just unlucky. As for a workplace's dress code, I think they have the rights to tell people not to wear nail polish. Maybe some could get specific saying only natural/clear colors. Some jobs eliminate various hair colors, piercings, visible tattoos, so, nail polish isn't that far out of step with other personal decorations.
