This challenge is only once a week, so I’m thinking it will be a good way to show at least one nail art look. Sometimes I am completely busy with reviews, so it’s nice to break that up. The

a England Dorian Gray & Glitzology As You Wish

Hey dolls! A couple of weeks ago, one of my loyal facebook fans asked me to swatch a England Dorian Gray since we have similar skin tones. It was my pleasure, since this was still in my untrieds.

Polish Days ~ Geometry

Hey dolls! I was so excited when the theme for this month’s Polish Days was released. I had so many great ideas…unfortunately, none of them worked the way I wanted it to.
