I have been doing a safety assessment and I needed to estimate how much nail varnish you apply. I assumed that somewhere there was some kind of official guidance on this figure published by, say, the Nail Varnish Marketing board or something. Google rarely lets you down on this kind of thing, but I could find no such data point.
But never fear. I have an accurate balance, I have a bottle of nail varnish and I have most importantly a set of nails. I am also a man which is good. Men generally have bigger hands than women. Although women use more nail varnish than men one cannot of course assume that no males use any at all. In fact quite a few do. So I can now reveal that the amount it took to cover all ten of my nails was 0.2g.
This is a fact of the utmost triviality to most people most of the time. But when you want to know you want to know. As I seem to have been the first person to put this fact into the public domain I am now going to consider myself as the world authority on how much nail varnish you use. It isn’t exactly Einstein’s theory of relativity but it is nice to make a contribution to human knowledge.
