My Internet worked long enough today for me to place my Zoya order. 3 polishes and the 32oz refill of remove plus for $25 with free shipping made me a happy lady.

Which colors did you get? I was going to get remove+ too. Maybe I'll get the refill since I already have a different brand but basically the same pumper bottle.

I did the same as Jess the Mess since I also have a pumper bottle. I think $25 for the remover and 3 polishes for $25 was a good deal. I bought Sari, Bailey, and Naveah since I need some light colors. I went through a lot of swatches online before I ordered just to see if there were some others I could use rather than light colors but I felt like I already had something similar to most that interested me. Hopefully, I will be happy with the colors I ordered. I'm excited to try Zoya polishes.

I received two belated Christmas gift cards and decided to use them on polish. Sally's was having a sale, and after using my Sally's card I only had to pay $5 for these

Now, the good stuff. I would normally never pay this much for polish, so I used my other gift card to get 2 bottles I have been coveting.

I'm way behind again. Christmas candy nails with a dotting took. I tried using striping tape on the pinky, but it is hard to apply striping tape straight using one hand. I'll have to figure out how to use it.

I got Essie Trophy Wife from my preschool niece because she knows I like nail polish. It is a bit much for my taste, but I think it will be great on my toes this summer.

A shot of my niece wearing one coat of Essie trophy wife.

Zoya Laney with Wet n Wild Hallucinate gradient for New Years Eve. It got smushed on the thumb with the kids around.

Rimmel Rags to Riches to watch NDSU Bison win the national championships two years running.

Long time follower of this thread. Had to come on to recommend Poshe super fast dry top coat. My mom told me about it and I absolutely love it. It does dry quickly, super shiny, with less chipping and its 3 free.

So many gorgeous colours, dang girls!

Anyone have a solution for nails peeling? In that it looks like my nails have an additional layer on top that peels off. it's really messing up my manicures. My last mani lasted 6 days before the nail started to peel and I removed it.

I will be violating my no-buy. I want a nude nail polish, and Avon is having 4 (from their Speed Dry Line) for $10, so....yeah.

Cuban: Please post more!!!! I'm loving that shade.

I just put on 3 coats of Nubar Absolute. I'll do french tips with Zoya Indigo later today when it's fully dry.

Nope, mine still peel. It does get a little better if I moisturize at least 3x a day but still peels. I've tried the peeling nail stuff from various brands. Got a glass nail file and stopped using clippers. Ad nauseum.... I think my nails are too thin and I'm too hard on them. Just got 1000mcg biotin gelcaps so I'm curious to see how they grow the next month or so.

The only way I stopped my peeling nails was to quit painting them. I have super thick and strong nails and they started peeling when I was painting them on a regular basis so I knew that was the cause. Once I stopped it took a few months, but they were back to normal.

I hope you can find a better solution than mine!

Thanks guys. I'm giving them a break this week, I doubt it will help but it's a start. i don't know if it's a particular brand, the nail polish remover or something so I'll keep playing around. I just bought the Quick and Gentle Cutex (Remover) with Vita E lets see if it helps.

well my nails peel and i really haven't found anything to stop them. i need to keep polish on my nails because (1) i like the way it looks and (2) i think it protects them from breaks. my nails aren't soft but i use this after rcc recommended the line. i do think this product helps. i also have the nail aid instant wrap. i use orly nail bonder also as a base coat. i actually think oil helps keep my nails moisturized so they peel less but it's hard for oil to get in when there's polish on. a little conundrum. i started using a remover with some acetone. it's "harsher" but it gets it off quicker and i think it may prevent over rubbing which was drying out my nails and maybe causing them to peel more.

i do think drinking ample amounts of water and getting healthy fats help everything from nails to skin, etc but it take my vitamins and drink well so i really don't know. my nails are a bit better now than they have been but i still have peelies that if i don't treat can make my nails look bad and cause breaking. i want my nails as nice as possible for some pics i'm taking in feb. gotta stay on top of it.

My nails peeled (I guess that's what you call it) after my last polish job. I had Dorothy Who? by China Glaze on. They feel so weak and are extremely short now. I already keep them short but I actually had skin come off too!
