I wish someone would invent....
...gardening gloves that are thin enough to feel what you're doing, but with some sort of protective rubber (or some such material) that protects my finger nails.
I love a good dig but not so keen when my nails have that dirty stain around the edges. I have to point at plans a lot in meetings and it makes me cringe! I hate painting my nails too so no way to hide it.
I could always give up work I guess?!
