Mint and Pink Thorns

What Ups Nails sent me some amazing nail vinyls to try out! For this manicure I used the Thorns Stencils, I’m not very experienced using nail vinyls, I’ve only tried one other brand before, but these are the best ones I’ve tried to so far! The other ones I’ve tried had too much of a strong glue, […]
