Twinsie Tuesday ~ Favorite Holo

Hey dolls! You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting on the blog or social media over the last week or so. Most of my long-time readers know that my mom is a two-time breast cancer survivor. I’ve always done breast cancer awareness looks throughout October each year to honor her, as well as fundraise for research efforts. We recently found out that she has a rare uterine cancer and I’ve been out of town for her surgery. There were a few complications, so at this point we’re still in the hospital. As you can imagine, my posts will be sporadic as I be there to support her recovery. We’re already claiming her victory as a three-time survivor and I greatly appreciate all of the prayers and positive vibes that can be sent our way.

The theme for this week’s Twinsie Tuesday was to show our favorite holo. I didn’t have a chance to prepare this post before leaving last week, but I thought I would show you a few of my favorite holos that I’ve come to love over the last few years with a little spam. I tend to prefer holos that are scattered or more subtle, but a few brands have made me like super holos a little more.

      I know right. It’s was nice to look back since we don’t get to re-wear polishes often.
