Why do I have to do this?

Next Tuesday I have to have a medical procedure for which I will be sedated.
The blurb states that I must remove nail varnish. I only had my nails done last Friday sad
Would it be unreasonable for me to wear surgical gloves?
After all, the Dr will be wearing them while doing a very intimate procedure, but my hands will be just laying on the bed, nowhere near the intimate area grin

It's the nail beds that indicate falling O2 levels.

It is a heartbreaker to take off that expensive new manicure though Petra, I feel your pain!

Almost as bad as smudging it on the way home from the salon angry

All done, and not one chip of my beautiful nails damaged. They did what they said and put the clip on my toe.
Just got to do toenails again grin

Phew, that's a relief then!

The procedure is over and the nails are still intact smile
