NailsEsteeLoreal

They keep trying to say that nail art is a dying trend, but I refuse to believe. I see the appeal in a more sedate manicure from time to time, but my spirit is drawn to statement nails that make heads turn. Lately I’ve been into at-home pampering, and this weekend as part of my […]
