China Glaze “Dandy Lyin’ Around”


Happy Sunday!! We are getting into May and I’m already feeling that itch to start busting out my neon nail polishes for summer. Actually, I’m wearing a neon nail polish as an accent nail right now.  In the summer I basically live in neons and white so when my friend Beth gifted me this polish,…

CND Effects “Sapphire Sparkle”


Happy Saturday! Today, I’m once again staying in and enjoying some straight to DVD horror movies on Netflix.  I’m finally getting out of my winter blues funk and being productive again.
