    What does that mean?

    And I totally agree. I have bought the exact same polish that they use in the salons, and my attempts start chipping within a day. Theirs - I can't hardly get it off.

    $6 for a manicure? Those are Third World prices. It's hard to find a decent one for under $30 here, and that is considered cheap.

    I have to order prescription retin-a cream online as it's not on sale here so that's expensive (but worth it). I also used to be too pale and have used sun powder for ages until I begon last month to eat the maximum of food with iron I could think of and it has radically changed my skin coloration, so much that my doc has commented on it

    i've had bad luck with chanel... it always chips so fast. OPI has the best color range. Revlon makes good polish too.

    i think maybelline makes pretty awesome mascara. i use the one thats in the lime green bottle with the silicone brush.
