What is a Cindy Hand?

What is a Cindy Hand?

05.11.15

By semick

As a nail blogger, you have two hands: your swatching hand (usually your non-dominant hand, which is usually painted) and your “Cindy” hand (your dominant hand, which frequently goes bare or at least sans detailed nail art). It’s called a “Cindy” hand because, just like poor Cinderella, your dominant hand does all the work but doesn’t get any credit; it’s usually just the swatching hand that gets photographed to share online.

Notice how these bloggers are all showing only their left hand?
