Do I need these? I do wear a lot of glitter polish and I hate to waste precious tin foil all the time

This is a pretty cool idea for faster glitter removal

Hot pink my daughter painted on my toes and bare fingernails. Not that into nails.

it's been awhile since i've posted my polish. i cut my nails after they grew quite long after the june/july nail challenge. i bought cassi and burke by zoya as part of the bogo sale but when i got cassi i didn't love it as much. anyway, tonight out of the blue my bf says "i like your nail polish"...he's NOT a nail polish guy so he must have really liked it. go figure, i'm wanting something major and think this is plain and boring but he likes it. oh well. guess i'll reapply and rock it another week

ignore what i think is a dog hair on one of my nails

I've never seen your nails that short.

That color is beautiful on you!

so here's my other zoyo polish from my bogo purchase. it's called burke. it's a cream wine color. it's okay. another one that looked better online. now i love jem and isla but i think i'll just purchase my zoya from ulta now that they carry it because the online and the in person are a little different.

That's why I always add a few color spoons to my order. Works for me to see the color in person and I get to take advantage of the promotions. I'm not close to an Ulta though.

Nubar Torrid. Very autumnal.

Wet N Wild Sage in the City - although I think it should be called Emerald City BC its not sage at all.

Women's Health said try to pick colors you wouldnt normally try, for a month. I am usually not into this color. So I picked it.


My toes are black with glitter tips. I want it off. OFF! But I don't have enough cottonballs to take the polish off.

This is torture.

Jess- I've seen people online use sticky fingers (rubber finger covers for sorting paper, see link). Turn them inside out and use half a cotton pad soaked in remover. I haven't tried it, but it seems like a good idea.

Pedaheh, that's a really good idea and I'll probably try it out after I get to the store. It'd sure save the time and waste with aluminum foil.

No pictures yet, but I bought Essie Go Overboard yesterday and it's so pretty in the bottle, can't wait to see how it looks on my toes.

Something I did realize yesterday is I can buy two bottles of Essie at Bed, Bath & Beyond and use a $5 off $15 coupon and get a pretty good deal of around $5.50 a bottle.

The person who posted the idea said they were in the office supply section of Walmart. LMK how it works. I've been meaning to try it myself.

Freehand vgap mani. I'll definitely use tape and a different color combo next time but I like the look.
And I'm kind of excited my nails are gradually getting the dagger look!

I found a cotton square and got my toenail polish off. Yay!

I think I'll be leaving my toes bare for a while. Then I'm thinking light pink.
