I’ve been totally neglecting my nails lately. In fact, they’ve just had clear polish on them for over a week! The horror! Luckily I have a few manis that I haven’t shared with you yet and one of them fits #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt of Things that are Round. The flowers are Read More

Right now my nails are bare and have been since last night. Ah, the horror! I even have the polishes for my next major manicure pulled out, but I will not be working on it tonight because I have other things that needed to get done more. Booooo! And speaking Read More
