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. One nail polish addict’s ‘elegant’ is another’s ‘crude’ or ‘plain’. The most elegant nails I think I’ve ever done are some gold stamping over a burgundy Chanel polish. I thought […] Read more
