Oh, thanks for the nailpolish restoring tip! (I went to the blog, bt I also came back!) I must admit I had never even heard of nail polish thinner or restorer, but now I must go see if they have any around here. Maybe in the bigger shopping mall cosmetics departments. All I've done so far has been adding a few drops of nailpolish remover or mixing the very viscous polish with a more runny one (sometimes creating not so deliscious shades of polish...), but maybe soon my polishes will come back alive.
