Morgan Taylor Put A Wing On It | Sweetheart Squadron Collection

Morgan Taylor Put A Wing On It is the second of six polishes in the Sweetheart Squadron collection that I am reviewing. Once again I feel that Morgan Taylor has mis-described a polish.

These black, white and orange tartan nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas “books” prompt. I don’t read anywhere near as much as I would like to. It’s all my son’s fault.
