Padre Pio's Manicure

Am I getting any billable work done today? Yes, I am. I cannot, however, resist stretching my lunch break to zoom in on this snippet from Whispers in the Loggia. Exhumed for a viewing to mark the 40th anniversary of St. Pio of Pietrelcina's death, Archbishop Domenico D'Ambrosio noted that Padre Pio's dead, encrypted hands:
"looked like they had just undergone a manicure."
How come my manicures don't last this long? Is it because I refuse to spend more than ten bucks and leave before the polish has fully dried? Or is it because I'm no saint?
