Nail Polish doesn't grow on Tree's ya know!  

This is the season where
dressing up is a weekly event. The
rest of the year you get hit with an
occasional wedding, shower or other
party where ya gotta don your best duds
but November and December are a non-
stop dress fest and and keeping up
with the "Joneses" can end up
being pretty costly. Let's face it, we all
need to save a penny or two where we

One of my pet peeves is buying nail
polish at anywhere from $3.00 to
$15.00 dollars a jar and when you go
to use it again you find it all lumpy and
ruined. Or is it? I couldn't stand tossing
away one more bottle so I decided to find
out what I could do about it. Here is
what I came up with........................

1. First off flip the bottle upside
down and roll it in your hands for
a while. The warmth from your body heat
will help thin it while being upside down
will allow the colors to run together and
redistribute. After a few minutes shake the
bottle vigorously and test it out. Sometimes
that is all it takes.

2. If that doesn't work try a little bit of nail
polish remover. Sometimes just thinning it
out a little bit helps. They also sell a product
you can get at any beauty supply store that
is made just for this reason. It is simply
called thinner or nail polish re-newer. It costs
between 5 and 10 dollars but will last forever
and it is worth it in the long run not to have to
toss out so many bottles in the mean time.

If those tips don't work you might find
yourself up the creek so to speak but if
you store it properly in a cool, dark place
and remember that darker shades go bad a
little bit faster you can avoid a lot of the hassle
to begin with.

Last of all if you are getting a shade for a special
event and know chances are you won't use it
again don't splurge on the good stuff. Though
the cheaper brands don't spread as well they still
do the trick for a one time event and why waste
cash if you can help it!

What next?
