I don't know if you're like me, but I hardly ever have time to give myself a manicure. And I love to have well-manicured nails, so that sometimes frustrates me.
(Confession - I was the girl in high school that painted my nails almost every day to match my outfits! Oh, that was a long time ago!! Friends that know me now probably have a hard time imagining that!)
I rarely bother with colored nail polish anymore, but I can at least keep my fingernails neatly filed. My secret - I keep a nail file and hand cream in the minivan. When my husband is driving on the weekends, I can take a few minutes to file my nails and give my fingers a mini-massage. It's silly, but it works well for me!!
