Why do the Sailor Guardians put nail polish on before putting on gloves during the transformation?

I've heard a theory that their attack energy originates from the polish. Also it just adds something "pretty" to the transformation LOL

A matter of bizarre female psychology. Attempting to explain it by logic is about as futile as trying to understand why fat ladies are so fond of going outside for shopping in see-through yoga pants. :ninja:

That'd work in a way similar to storing their outfits in another dimension, only that those're stored in their pens instead. :)

Because they know it's shown (albeit briefly) on screen during transformation. In addition, if I remember correctly, toy nail polishes were also one of the merchandise of the show at the time, so it helped sell those products & keep the show running (hence their jobs too). :)

I think it might be a vestige of an abandoned idea. In the Materials Collection, Naoko shows Sailor Mars without gloves, noting that she has a red manicure and can shoot laser beams. Like doctorwho29 said, I think originally the Sailors were supposed to be able to take off their gloves and use attacks that possibly came from their manicures. However, when the series actually got made, this idea was abandoned. (Although in Venus's first appearance in the Sailor Moon manga, she switches between wearing her gloves and hold them from panel to panel. It's....strange.)

ETA: Here's the page I'm talking about: https://gallery.missdream.org/albums/sc ... 08/010.jpg Top panel, she's removed at least one glove and is holding it aloft; then, bottom right panel, she's wearing both gloves. Weird.

There's probably no official answer to this but how long do you think a Senshi can stay transformed at a time? Do they change back when they go to sleep? Is there a limit at all?

Haven't you ever thought that their true permanent forms are not the civil ones but rather the sailor ones? We have never seen them in their civil forms neither in the past (Silver Millenium) nor the future (Crystalu Tokyo). Maybe it's just a disguise, a temporary measure?

Princesses don't have to pee.

It gets them +5 of Attack.
