Can you believe its been 30 days since I launched my blog?!??!??!?! The response has been overwhelming (in a good way of course) and its more exciting than I thought it would be. I started my blog not only to bring you swatches, reviews and tutorials but interviews and helpful information, but also because I have so much to say and to capture my nail journey. I didn’t think I’d have anyone read, subscribe or even view/visit my blog, except my husband (because if not he might be hurt in his sleep) and to see how far its come in a short amount of time is amazing. I plan to bring much more and so I hope you tune in to join me for the best that’s yet to come! 

For making my first month soooooo successful, I wanted to show my appreciation and say ‘thank you’. I teamed up with none other than the wonderfully talented and extraordinarily generous Mildred Edwards from Anonymous Lacquer. I worked with Mildred to have 2 custom polishes created for me to giveaway and even with all her other obligations on her plate, she agreed!IMG_2389

I asked my husband to choose 2 photos as inspiration that I could give to Mildred and here is what he chose. The venomous, colorful snake because he wants a snake as a pet but a picture is as close as he’ll ever get….lol and the second is a lion. Jason, my hubby, aka Mista, is a Leo, born July 29 and he embodies the true nature of a lion. He even has one tattooed on his chest…nothing sexier than a tatted man and a beard (sorry, I got a little off topic).

When Mildred sent me pictures of what she created, I was floored. They were PERFECT!!! I knew then I would need a set not only for the giveaway but for myself as well. So now I have the pleasure to show you…….
