I'm obsessed with nails, too! I have a few O.P.I. and Essie nail polishes, but my collection is mostly China Glaze. Some colors are hit and miss, but for the most part, their stuff is pretty cool.
Do you use the nail pens? I have a gold one. Your nails are cool.

Warning: sugar-free candy can be high in sugar alcohols. In many people, ingesting sugar alcohols causes WICKED bad intestinal cramping and diarrhea.

When I was in Weight Watchers I would regularly experiment with alternative type of products like: fat-free cream cheese (horrible, like eating vaseline) and sugar free jelly beans. I ate like a palm's worth of jellybeans and was struck with severe bowel pains etc. I wished I was dead. Be careful!

AMEN! There are many things I will do without, but my cream cheese needs it's fat!

Quite frankly I live by the adage, no fat - no taste.

I am not totally apposed to low fat things, but they are generally things that probably didn't have much fat in them to begin with.

I have actually started cooking my own staple things, just to avoid the preservatives. So I no longer by Mayo, taco sauce, taco seasoning, cookies or other backed goods. I make them at home, where I control what goes into them. It is so much butter for you....opps, I mean better!

I already have Ulcerative Colitis and do not need anymore pains. I think I will pass.

I do have some nail pens, but I did this particular manicure using the water marbling method. Rather time involved, but I really like it

Well, that sounds interesting. Will you explain the technique?

You pretty much place drops of nail polish (you want to make concentric circles) into a little container with water then gently swirl the nail polish around with a toothpick until you get the desired marbled effect. You dunk your nail in and that's about it. Check out this YouTube video for a cool tutorial!
