Menstrual Cup vs Fake Nails



I've got a fancy dress up gala tonight, so naturally Aunt Flo shows up *this morning* (6 days late 🙄) in all her crampy glory. Now, cramps I can deal with - me and Advil go way back haha

However, I decided to treat myself and will be getting gel nails for the first time in like five hours (after I drop my kids off with their sitter). How in the name of anything holy do I navigate getting my cup in and out with them on?! I was worried about zipping my dress and closing my necklace with them, now I've got this curveball 😭

Advice? Or should I just commit to changing a pad every hour while I'm all fancied up? 😫
