2) with the big grand opening everything was 20% off...my grand total: $28! for mani and pedi
3) found a new OPI color i'm very happy with..."bright lights, big color"

What I love about "bright lights, big color" is the gold shimmer throughout the polish. When the sun hits the color, it just lights up! My pictures show this color as kind of a plain orange but it's a tinge more on the pink coral side of orange.
