Thanks, Bretty! I love a good history lesson, especially on little details like nails that aren't exactly prime class discussion topics. I found a comment below it really interesting, too - it mentioned, among other innovations in nail care, soy oil-based nail polish remover. I'd never heard of such a thing. Has anyone used a remover like that?

Look at me jonesing for new nail stuff when I can count the times I've worn nail polish in the past four years on one hand. Okay, maybe two fingers...and I only restricted it to the past four years because I can't remember if I wore it enough times in HS to need two hands. I always ooh and aah over all the pretty colors and designs people are wearing, but I'm always too lazy to get in on the action!

I need to learn how to do my own nails because this gel polish $ is adding up. Do any of you do your own gel polish manicures? And if not
how often do your regular manicures last. (reply here or PM is fine) thanks in advance (:

I don't use gel, just regular old polish. My pedicures will last many weeks. My manicures will last approx 2 weeks (tho I usually change my polish more often out of boredom). I don't use a base coat or a top coat. I put on 2 coats of polish, then add coats as they need it, usually every 4-5 days.

My current manicure is Sinful Colors in Black on Black with accents of Wet N Wild in Glitz (which is so much prettier and more sparkly in real life).
Yes, my accents are always the same. Unfortunately I can't get too fancy with a bad hand tremor. But the simple dots make me happy. : )

Bretty's lovely nails made me realize I have a few acrylic paints. Since I'm looking forward to spring, here are my flowers, and a bird. I haven't attempted my right hand yet.

I tried to do something for the Lunar New Year, but I don't like how it came out. I tried to do a gradient, but it's really choppy. I guess I need to practice.

Nubar Rosso with Nubar Gold Glitter on top.

I'm in the process of revamping my nail care routine. I have been moisturizing like crazy in the past few weeks and my nails are breaking and peeling a lot less. I'm also still waiting for my Dermanail to arrive. I'm excited about starting that routine. I also have a boatload of new nail polishes and products on the way when my husband returns home.

So as a result of researching nail issues, I have been reading about filing nails vs. cutting. I have always cut my nails with very sharp nail clippers in the past but I think it could be contributing to some of my nail issues (occasional splitting, peeling). Does anyone else on here just file your nails down when needed rather than clip? Have you noticed a difference in your nails?

I'm a clipper. I use toenail clippers. Fingernail clippers won't work. With that kind of thickness, I'm not taking all that time to file down.

Just got this set in the mail today. Not that I needed these colors but it was $7 and free shipping so I couldn't pass it up. : )
