revlon Fashionista Stamped with Sally Hansen Shiny Penny: E is for: Elegant

E is for elegant in this week’s A2Z series challenge. The problem with this theme is that it’s very subjective and all in the interpretation.

I really didn’t want to take off my lovely For Audrey manicure with accent water marble. But it had stayed on for longer than I usually leave my manicures and had finally got a few tiny chips. So I removed it last night and set about doing a new manicure. It was quite late – […] Read more
