100 Years of Manicures

When some folks are bored they read a book or watch an entire season of Grace & Frankie on Netflix. Others, like Cristine Rotenberg, nail art blogger behind Simply Nailogical, spend over 15 hours painting coats of nail polish onto their nails — 116 to be exact.

Because, well, why not?

Rotenberg posted a video, which has since watched over eight million times, of her building a "polish mountain" on her nails. One by one she painted a different color onto her nails, waited for it to dry and repeated this 115 more times.

Have an extra few hours? You might as well see how many layers of nail polish you can paint on. Rotenberg, who has over 400,000 followers on Instagram, recommends tagging #PolishMountain on social media if you do.

And believe it or not, people are jumping on the bizarre bandwagon.

#polishmountain #simplynotlogical @simplynotlogical 120 coats!!!!
