Thanks, everyone! I've felt really inspired this week, plus I'm super stressed from work and thinking about painting my nails is a good distraction for me.

Baps - thanks for the info, I had no idea how it all worked but my sis also does gel recently made a comment about not wanting her normal polish because she won't really use it any more either

My Shankly - ouch :( Have you got a product you could put on during the week while you're at work - like Nubar Nu Nail? I find it helps keep my nails safe at work.

A friend sent me Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop and Across the Universe!

Here's Candy Shop (3 coats) plus accent nails with Orly Liquid Vinyl (2 coats)

I looked that up and someone is selling it on Amazon for $110 with free shipping, haha. I was using clear polish but it was just regular polish and it came off really fast. I can have colors on my nails at work but since my nails chip so much from work I've been trying to keep it to clear so that it doesn't look awful in between paint jobs. Is there a good strengthener that's maybe a bit on the cheaper side? Also, what do you guys do for your cuticles and around your fingernails, my skin is in a lot of pain around my nails and is splitting.

i use LUSH ultrabalm on my cuticles every night before bed (and then one of their hand lotions), and do the same routine each morning(-ish) after getting ready for the day. LUSH has an actual cuticle cream, but it's not vegan so i use the ultrabalm instead.

Qtica has a nail strengthener I think (same co. as Zoya). Can't speak to how good it is. The lady who does my eyebrows recommended Duri, but I literally know nothing about it other than her recommendation. I got the Qtica nail oil and love it. I usually use that or Butter London handbag holiday and hand lotion. Really any kind of oil would be good. I think coconut oil would be nice, maybe?

ETA: Duri has keratin. Lame. Glad I didn't get it.

ETA 2: I did by OPI Nail Envy. I felt funny about saying that though, and I know some don't use OPI due to parent company. (It also has formaldehyde resin and camphor.)

Kitteh those DL polishes are so pretty. I have one of hers and my eye on others but they're so expensive!

I really don't like my nails today. I tried to do an ombre and I think it just looks like I tried to do stripes and made a mess. Pretty sure it's coming off tonight! haha

Cuticle oil at least twice a day should help. Ultrabalm is a good idea if you don't have an oil you like.

I love CND's Solar Oil and China Glaze's orange cuticle oil, both lovely. Nubar's cuticle oils are also very nice and not as pricey as Solar Oil.

I've been wearing Or de Russie (black base with gold/chestnut glitter flecks), but just ruined it be opening Amazon plastic bags with my nails because I was too lazy to go get the scissors.

I'm going to wear black and white tomorrow--I just got a great oversize cardigan /sweater coat that is black with a winter white shawl collar. (I love stacked mark downs at the register, but it's annoying to figure out before. $159 sweater ended up being $38 after the 10%, 30%, 25%, blah blah were applied. It's a perfect heavy, cozy cotton. The rooms at work are either boiling or freezing. I fail at Christmas shopping, but I did get what I wanted for my mom after I finished buying crepe for myself).

I can't decide on a polish. I wore red last week, so I'm bored with that.

LOVE that manicure, Baps!! Pedicure is great, too. But man, that manicure is the bee's knees.

I heard about the booty nail polish because it was on xojane.com as one of the things Jane couldn't get anybody to write about this week. I'm surprised she had trouble...

I think it's because I (so, presumably others?) can't decide to be offended or just laugh at it...

Exactly. It made me immediately think that this thread needed to know about it though. And, hey! It's cruelty free!

Thank you guys for all of your recommendations! It seems another problem may also have been that I was dehydrated and since I've been trying to be more conscious of my water intake, it seems to be getting better. I'm still going to get cuticle oil/Ultrabalm and strengthener though because I need that extra protection.

eta: What do you think of this? http://www.zoya.com/content/38/item/Zoy ... -05oz.html

Ulta has a "buy 2 get 1 free" on Zoya, CG, and Orly. Unfortunately, my store didn't have 3 Zoyas that I wanted, and all 3 have to be from the same brand. But if you have a well-stocked store, it might be worth checking out!

Boober! That's gorgeous! What are you wearing?

I'm currently wearing OPI Skyfall. It's a dark red with brownish undertones. I like it, but I don't think the name suits it. The name did make me think of Lavawitch though!

I think next time I'm going to get The World is Not Enough.
