With all of the end of year posts, I ran out of days to post my monthly manicures and my monthly favorites separately. I like to post monthly things within the month and I didn’t want to spill over into January so a combo post it is.
Can’t stop, won’t stop wearing these bracelets
I think I found both of these on Facebook, regardless, they both made me think, reflect, and be extra grateful.
No better way to end the year than with the most beautiful, perfect lady on the planet that I love and adore.
Thank you so much for reading and following along in 2018. I’m already prepping and planning for 2019 and I can’t wait to keep posting and sharing my love of all things beauty with y’all.
I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever shade of nail polish or lipstick that you want to, regardless of season. However, there are certain colors that I am more drawn to different times of the year.
Y’all know I share my Monthly Manis each month and nail polish is where my love of all things beauty started. My grandma got her nails done every 2 weeks and I went with her a lot. I remember going in the salon and seeing rows and rows of nail polish and LOVING it. I was exposed at a young age and clearly inherited the gene. When my grandma went into labor with my mom, she was sitting at the table painting her nails and she wouldn’t let my grandpa take her to the hospital until she was finished. Again, I got it honest.
Out of the 160ish (at last count) shades that I own, I managed to narrow it down to 36 shades across 5 color categories.
