Men jeg elsker flotte tånegle .... But I love pretty toenails

Mest dyr ting (i forhold til Amerikas priser) jeg har fandt i Danmark (så fjern)....
Most expensive thing (compared to America´s prices) I have found in Denmark (so far)

Da jeg flyttede til Danmark, fortalte jeg mig selv jeg må give op ting som mange mere dyr i Danmark end Amerika... ligesom mine kuntstige fingrenegle og min regular pedicures! Det var OK. Jeg var fint med det....til denne uge! Jeg bestemmede jeg kan give mig selv en pedicure for fri (fordi de koster om 350DKK her). Jeg har alle ting jeg har brug for at gør det, undtagen ”Negl Farve Fjerne”, så jeg cyklede til den Herningcenter at købe det. Mine tå negle har været rød siden jeg kom til Danmark (fra da min mor tog os piger til Elizabeth Ardens Rød Dør Spa)....og det var tid for en ny farve! (Ja, Shelly... sort!)
When I moved to Denmark, I told myself I must give up things that were much more expensive in Denmark than in America....like my pink and white nails and my regular pedis! It was OK. I was fine with it…until this week! I decided I can give myself a pedicure for free (because they cost about $70 here). I have all the things I need to do it, except nail polish remover, so I rode my bike to the Herning Center to buy it. My toenails have been painted red since I came to Denmark (from when my mom took us girls to Elizabeth Arden´s Red Door Spa)…and it was time for a new color! (Yes, Shelly…black!)

i dag / Today:
(Og ikke kommenter om brechen imellem min stor tå og anden tå! Jeg kan lidt den! LOL
And no comments about the gap between my big toe and my second toe! I like it! LOL)



I Texas, kan købe du ”Negl Farve Fjerne” i en meget stor flaske om 10DKK, og det varer for måneder og måneder! Jeg fandt hvad jeg har brugt for i den Herningcenter, men flasken var meget små (100ml)...og dengang jeg så prisen!! 55DKK for denne lille flaske.... det var ligesom FLYDENDE GULD ! Egentlig, havde de tre slags at valge fra... alle 3, SMÅ FLASKER...om 84DKK, 64DKK and enen jeg valgte for 55DKK. Jeg kunne ikke tror det! Jeg tror min ny farve på mine tåer skal være der for en lang tid!! Jeg lige håber jeg ikke spilder det!!
In Texas you can buy nail polish remover in a huge bottle for about 2 bucks, and it lasts for months and months. I found what I needed at the Herning Center, but the bottle was so small (3 oz)… and then I saw the price!! $11 for this little bottle… it was like LIQUID GOLD! Actually, they had three kinds to choose from…all 3 LITTLE BITTYBOTTLES… for $17, $13 and the one I chose for $11. I could not believe it! I believe that my new color on my toes will be there for a long time!! I just hope I don´t spill it!


Jeg skal bruge min "Flydende Guld" Negl Farve Fjerne for mange måneder, så min 55DKK går en lang måde, jeg håber... og Jeg er glad for jeg maler mine tånegle for sjov, i stedet for ryger.. Prisen Negl Farve Fjerne er ikke forudsige at stigning, men kigge på prisen for cigareter! 48DKK per pakke! (Og selv om øls pris ER også forudsagde at stigning, NEJ, jeg er ikke give det op! Jeg tænker jeg skal drikke en øl IMENS jeg maler mine tånegle!)
I will use my "liquid gold" Nail Polish Remover for many months, so my $11 will go a long way, I hope… and I am glad that I paint my toes for fun, instead of smoking… the price of Nail Polish Remover is not predicted to increase, but look at the price for cigarettes! Næsten $10 a pack! (And although the price of beer IS also predicted to increase, NO, I am not giving it up! I think I will drink a beer WHILE I paint my toenails!)

I have trouble painting my toe nails...it's hard to reach. If you want, next time I come back I will bring you tons of nail polish remover:)

There are just some things a girl MUST have and that is pretty toenails. I would be glad to bring you a bottle of nail polish remover when I visit, but don't think it would pass the TSA test. Enjoy - $11 is a small price to pay for pretty toes. Hope you have lots of nail polish as it is probably much higher too.

Hmmmm.. I kinda get it when cigarette and beer prices go up...sin tax. Especially with gov't sponsored healthcare.

But expensive nail polish remover? As far as I know it's buffered acetone (paint thinner). My Jenny-brain can't make 11$ for 3 oz. compute...

Denmark = $$$$$

I think mine was 25DKK from SuperBest in Lyngby. Next time your here you can stock up. It will be like 2 for the price of one! :)

Just keep this in mind... we travel to Denmark because it is sooo much cheaper for us! 75 nok for a pack of smokes...

I am a product fanatic, but the insane prices here are really slowing that habit down. I brought as much as I could from home, and when I go home for a visit, I am restocking. Almost out of my $1.99 Canadian polish remover, so thanks for the warning!
