Happy Monday! I’m back from a great vacation in St. Maarten with a book full of new ideas for the blog (it’s amazing how the creativity flows when you’re lying in the sun). To counteract the usual let down of coming home from a holiday, I am so lucky to come home to some really exciting nailmail packages of polishes and nail art supplies to…

Toronto Mastercard World Fashion Week has continued on with a bang this week. I’ve had so much fun being part of the essie Canada team of artists.

I wanted to play with the color…
