I decided to go with chevron tips. I wasn’t quite ready to remove SmittenPolish Audrey’s Rainbow, so I added the tip to that mani using

Hey dolls! After giving it some thought, I finally decided to participate in the Busy Girl Nails Winter Nail Art Challenge. 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

Twinsie Tuesday ~ Cloud Mani ~ a England Galahad

Hey dolls! The theme for this week’s Twinsie Tuesday was to do a cloud mani. I absolutely love this look and I’ve done several in the past.

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. I’ll probably show you those fails at a later time. Yesterday I decided to take the easy route of stamping, which in actuality isn’t that easy for me
