Today I have a recreation of one of Sharon Medran’s (@sharnailstar) beautiful nail art designs because it’s her birthday! Woo!

The theme for this 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Going on Holiday. Since I just went on holiday to Mexico at an all inclusive resort, my first thought was alcohol. I almost did an entire manicure of just different forms of booze, but then I thought I’d add the Read More
