Essie “Stroke of Brilliance”


I’m totally cheating and tying in my 30 Day Makeup Challenge post with my nail polish post today.  Day 12 of the makeup challenge is supposed to be all about glitter.  Day 12 literally just says “Glitter, lots of it!” I originally planned to do a glitter makeup look and actually had a lot of…

Day 10 of the 30 Day Makeup Challenge
