Their purple polish Flashy Violet is really gorgeous, someone on LHC has it as a mani in their avatar picture. (Can't access my LHC account to remind myself who it was, but still, very pretty.)


Oh, that's about the most common more professional brand here. Maybe I'll have a look if they have that polish in the shops here and send you some.

You're very thoughtful, but honestly, I need a new bottle of polish like I need a hole in the head.

Do keep an eye out for Mavala polish thinner, I hear it's good stuff.

Heh, I understand. I don't hoard nail polishes really, but I do hoard other things... like some arts and crafts supplies...

I'm due for my monthly 'mini' pedicure. My stylist cleans and clips my toes and polishes them. I do the rest at home because I take care of my feet about once a week. My appointment is next Tuesday. I'm trying to decide what color to go with. I will be wearing this choice while I'm on my trip down south. I might pick what I've got on now, again. I like it! It's the Pure Ice 'Cheatin' over black polish.

Well i didnt get mine done but i did do a pedicure for my mom. Revlon red one of her favs kinda felt like some girly bonding tonight which is unusual for us. My knees hurt from beong on the floor though.

Natalia I used to do my Mom's pedicures for her. When I found out she was paying a lady at Penney's $40 (that was a lot of money 12-15 years ago) I made her stop going and I did them for her. I was better at it anyway because I was gentler and always took care of her big toes so that she didn't get ingrown nails. I always sat Indian style on the floor on a cushion. I had a huge plastic bowl (the old Tupperware salad bowl) that I would soak her feet in. When I finished working on one foot, I'd put it back in the warm water. I did her pedicures about every three weeks. It was an honor for me to get to do this for my mother and I miss it.

I never let her give me money, but we shopped a lot and if I saw something I liked, I generally always came home with it.

Glad im not the only one anyone IRL ive said that too thinks im gonzo lol! My mom cant reach most of her toes on one foot and frankly its hard for her to get down there at all. Also we are both prone to very thick cracked heels which they just dont get very throughly at the salon. We usually ped egg, then dremel with an aluminum oxide stone, and finally do an acid peel and scrub off with pumice. We touch up with a standard foot file when we remember.

I should pull out our old pet beds your idea sounds way more comfy! My mom and i have a pretty tense relationship but with both of us in poor health we need eachother so occasionally some bonding becomes of that.
