Autumn Spam

I’ve decided to occasionally post a bit of nail spam when I’ve been wearing polishes that don’t necessarily need their own post.  And since autumn has arrived (for those of us in the northern hemisphere), I have been powering through my autumn-esque polishes… so, spam post it is!   First up is Purplexed, from Cover Girl’s old […]

The formulas are more consistent than any other brand I’ve tried extensively, the […]
