POLL: What are the best tips/tricks you have learned from this nail board? Mine...

1. Using the foil method to remove glitter polish.
2. Taking it a step further: Using a base coat of glue to simply peel off glitter polish.
3. Using a teabag to fix a broken nail.

Thank you to everyone who has been helpful! My polish stash has grown from about 6 bottles to well over 30 :)
