I use this on my feet, but I also like it for my hands on places where I develop calluses from activities where I might actually WANT to keep the callus (for skin protection, they do form for a reason) but don't want it to be dry and nasty or crack.

With the Pumi bar it's really easy to just do as little or as much as you want - so if you want to keep a callus you can knock …

Added this because the fitness board is quite busy and a lot of folks do drink shakes of various types, and let's face it you don't always have a blender handy, and the range of shake mixing bottles out there is ridiculous, and a lot of them are awful.

Enter the Blender Bottle. It's a plastic bottle with a screw-on lid which, instead of having some silly screen to mix …

Polishes - China Glaze - FYI

So yeah, I caved and paid too much for this discontinued polish elsewhere because I was so intrigued, and I can honestly say that "OMG" was a good collection name - this color is AWESOME. A little boring, because it is basically beige, but the holo gives it color and a unique effect. Perfect for when you don't want your nails to jump up and down and scream "here I am!" …Read more

This is THE perfect cherry bright classic red for those of us who are JUST on the cool side of neutral - not pink, not orange, just bright clear red. I love it.

Applied really nicely, too; some Zoya polishes can be streaky but not this one. 2-3 coats (depending on your preference) and done.

(Plus, the test coat I slapped on one nail the day it arrived - everyone does that …

I love the color, but this stuff is kind of difficult to apply nicely because it dries fast like a neon or a matte and that means I sometimes end up with a kind of weirdly clumpy-streaky finish even though the coverage is opaque.

That said, with a top coat it is gorgeous, and seems to wear well for me. I'm just not sure that with the application trouble and the glitter issue with …

I sometimes have problems with the brush on my bottle sticking to the bottle and not the handle - screwing it back on tightly and then removing again seems to do the trick, but it is annoying.

With this plus a good top coat, I get MUCH better wear out of my polishes than with just about any other base coat I've tried. I'm very hard on my nails, so that means something to me …

Top/Base Coats - Poshe - Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

I alternate between this and Seche Vite - I know some people prefer one or the other, but I personally find that some polishes seem to last better with one vs the other so I keep both on hand - otherwise they do much the same job. Seche Vite is maybe a little better on top of a really rough glitter polish, but an extra coat of Poshe will do the job too.

(Like Seche Vite, this will …

Apr/17/2011

I do sometimes get peeling from this - where the polish peels off in whole sheets from my nails - but it's normally after a couple of days of wear and tear, and honestly most of the time a coat of this or two is the only way I get a manicure to last more than three seconds without denting or getting sheet marks or something in it anyway, so it's a price I'm willing to …Read more

I love the color, I get good wear from China Glaze in general - only thing not to love is the glitter issue, and I've found that using craft felt with polish remover solves that problem nicely. Great winter/Christmas color if you don't want to go red like everyone else.

Apr/17/2011

I have converted everyone in my house to this. Sometimes I use something 'prettier smelling' like a scrub on my legs or something just for a more fun shower experience, but for getting clean, this stuff just plain works without drying out the skin or covering anything up with stinky perfume.

(The large size containers don't fit in my shower rack, so I bought a smaller …
