Do not paint your nails post-Ambien. I can't paint my own nails as it is but something motivated me to do it last night...after I had already popped my sleeping pill. I tend to forget what I do on Ambien, which is why I shouldn't do anything at all. I woke up this morning and did a double take because it looked like my fingers were covered in blood. This photo was after the polish was removed from my fingers. All will be removed this evening.
