Most nights, I pick up the hobby case that holds all my nail art – Konad tools, stickers, nail art lacquers – and I carry it into my living room. I do my nails on the couch, and use the coffee table to spread out my stuff so I can get to work. If reruns are …

Diamond NOT in the rough!

Not too long ago, I discovered a cosmetics company called Diamond. I read about them in another blog and went to hunt them down because I heard they sold their nail polish for $2 a pop.
