I know the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is starting tomorrow, but I wouldn’t be a patriotic Canadian if I didn’t give myself some Canada Day nails (even if I only wear them for a day). Last year, I did some non-traditional Canada Day Nails here and here, so this year I wanted to include our Canadian flag (on my ring finger) to make my Canada…

Just a few months after OPI launched OPI Color Paints, in July essie will launch the essie Silk Watercolor Collection which consists of 8 watercolor hues and a white page, a white palette for your artwork.
