How-to Organize Your Polish Stash: Cabochon Swatches

For those of us who keep their stash of polishes in Helmers, you understand the struggle to look down upon your collection and see nothing but black and white tops with very little viewpoint of the actual polish shade.

Review: Born Pretty Store 3D Dried Flowers

Summer Fruit Nail Art

As it's the end of summer I thought I would finish it off with a fruit themed manicure

I created the look with Moyra plate 06 - florality: I used the fruit image and used the reverse stamping method.

Hope you guys like the look! I've been super busy painting the exterior of the house, I forgot what fun it is to paint a smaller canvas :)
