This post was done in partnership with JUVÉDERM®, and Allergan Canada however as always, all opinions are my own. How can one year be the best and worst in your entire life?

Happy Saturday lovely readers! Today’s prompt for the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is: WEATHER. I struggled with this one a little and had a few ideas, but I settled on lightning nails, as I had a few lightening nail vinyls from Snail Vinyls to use. It’s also supposed to thunderstorm in Toronto tonight, so I thought these nails would be weather appropriate. I wanted to…

Unfortunately the beauty…
