Deborah Lippmann Mermaids Kiss

Chevron Mermaid tips

Another one of my “introduction to my nails” manicures! Like I said in my previous post, I started a new job, and I don’t want to scare off my new colleagues with my nail art, so I’m slowly introducing them to nail art with some very simple manicures.   I used Deborah Lippmann – Mermaid’s Kiss, […]
