Happy Blogiversary!

Well, today marks the one year anniversary since I started this blog!  Even though I haven't posted as often lately, I couldn't let it go by without at least mentioning it.  Last year I was so excited to be writing about the amazing nail polishes I was discovering, rediscovering, and using.  That excitement hasn't diminished and I still see something awesome and think, "I can't wait to blog about it!" while snapping pictures on my phone at the store. :)  I hope you've all enjoyed looking at photos and reading my ramblings as much as I've enjoyed creating them.  Here's to another year! :)

I also wanted to post a fun layering experiment.  I started with 2 coats Sinful Colors Let's Talk.  Then, I added 1 coat of Daddy's Girl, and topped it off with a layer of Essie Matte About You.  This is such a fun look with the matted gold flakies and the deep, richly colored purple.
