In a "Stars! They're just like us!" scenario gone wrong, Drew Barrymore Instagrams herself on the New York City Subway while painting her nails. It's as if she's saying "Hey guys! I'm so relatable, because even though I've been in like 50 movies, I'm busy, and want to pay $2.50 for my commute," but then fails by taking her smelliest beauty habit into a packed train. Eyeshadow application on the train? Go for it. Nail polishing? You deserve all the stink eyes.
