1) putting nail polish in the refridgerator makes the polish less goopy and more smooth.
2) when waiting for the polish to dry, do not blow on your fingers - it will create lots of little bubbles in the polish.
3) i find that using nail clippers on the hang nails, dry cuticles, etc works better than the nail nippers.
4) i like blue nail polish! (well especially OPI's Teal the Cows Come Home)
