I'm a 6th-8th grade special education teacher, and I enjoy painting my nails as my moment of zen some days. I don't claim to be awesome at it, or even very neat with it, and teaching is a bit rough on your hands, with all the papers and hand sanitizer. My swatches probably won't be all that pretty, but they'll let me have a reference back to my collection. This will also help me clean out the closet of polish and other beauty items.
I just thought "Teacher Talons" was a cute name...I don't really have talons. They're more on the side of nubbins.
