Why I Paint My Nails

Many have posed this question to me and I have hitherto been unable to succinctly express my philosophy. Moreover, my previous explanations have been so distinct from one another that a third party might deem them unrelated. Here is my current attempt to explain why.

There are two reasons why I paint my nails. The first reason is because I want to express my discontent with blind obedience. The acceptance of this custom of painting nails is an insignificant but symbolic example of blind obedience. The second reason is so that people ask me, which in turn, provides me with an opportunity to share my beliefs.
