Thought I'd suppoort the business and let you know that AVON nailpolish is really nice and inexpensive. AND I dont know if its true or not but I heard that its OPI with the Avon label on it. If interested look for a sales rep near you! (sounds like I'm an infomercial doesn't it? LOL)

Love those nails, dimpledapple! I too love nail polish, but find that the remover stuff weakens the nails almost immediately, and takes all the shine off the natural nail.

So I don't wear the polishes too often....but I do love to dress up my fingers when I'm selling my handmade soaps at a craft show.

fabric. I think my fabric stash is bigger than my yarn stash (to keep it in perspective: my fabric fits in one of those medium size 21 gallon or so rubbermaid bins while my yarn stash, including my needles and wip's take up 3 drawers of one of those sterlite carts that you can pick up for about 16 bucks at walmart... i know, i need to get to a LYS soon!)

I don't really buy fabric for any reason other than i like it... then i try to figure out a quilt for various fabrics and then buy MORE fabric to coordinate for the printed fabric... then i lose patience with all the measuring and cutting and pick up my knitting needles instead

Walmart sells them here.

Thanks! I hear you on the remover. I almost always use non-acetone nail polish remover, and although it takes a bit more work to remove all the polish, it's definitely more gentle on your nails. Afterward, I wash my hands thoroughly to remove any remover residue and then apply my cuticle cream and whatnot. I have very brittle nails but have found that these extra steps really help!
