nails

      I am a fashion girl. I have had my nails done for a year now. I know I am addicted. I am also addicted to having a reason to get out of the house and get a little bit of me time. It is worth the $15 for the fill. I have been looking at the nail art forever. I just can't justify the expense of the design. I had a bit of inspiration from my daughter. she puts stickers on everything. I decided sticker on my nails would be perfect. The question I had was will they last? Do they look good? Can ...

It is a really fine line in my opinion. I decided this under $10 bottle of spirit is fun. I think you should grab a new color and try it ...
