All my nailpolishes 2014: There is a light green

As I said in my “2014 blog resolution” I want to use every nailpolish I own at least once this year. And I started this quest last week. My nail polishes are sorted by colour on my nail polish shelf so I simply started on the left side where the collection starts with light green. So last week was a green week: Continue reading

Red & Gold Ruffian Nails
