Hi everyone! For the Floral prompt in the 31 Day Challenge, I decided to revisit a design that I did in my very first 31 Day Challenge that I LOVED.

Great Lakes Lacquer A Nude Awakening Collection

These are all gorgeous twists on neutral shades that are both work appropriate and fun! The A Nude Awakening Collection will debut at Polish Con on the September 17th and will be up in the Great Lakes Lacquer shop on September 21st.

31DC2016 - Blue - Tone-On-Tone Blobbicure

*Nothing to Disclose*

Hi everyone! Today for the 31 Day Challenge the theme is Blue! I had a gorgeous blue duo from Polish My Life that look just perfect together, so I decided to use them for this prompt. I must add that I have ordered from Polish My Life several times and always with no issues at all. With my last order, Shaneka accidentally sent me the holo from this duo when I ordered the creme. I contacted her and she told me to keep the holo and she sent me the creme right away. Such fantastic customer service and a pleasure to deal with! She is a a stand-up businesswoman.
