March’s host for #NailsWithIgFriends was Sharon (@sharnailstar). She is an actual nail technician and I admire her work greatly.

When I purchased Essie’s “Toggle to the Top” I thought it was the perfect polish to represent berry pie filling. It’s this dark raspberry color packed with glitter and so yummy. I must do pie nails with this, I thought. On Pi Day. So for the past two Pi Days Read More
