Happy Saturday! I hope everyone had a good week. It's been hectic on my end but fun! I am a very blessed lady. I have to keep this in mind when times get tough or I feel like things are spinning out of hand. Well living the dream and dreaming the dream are certainly two different things lol! I would be wise to remember that. Nevertheless I am still blessed. Blessed in the friends I have and the gifts I have been given. One friend in particular Lauri of CrowsToes I have been very blessed to make. I've learned a lot from her sense of humor, and strength and dedication to working hard for herself and her family. She's a bit of a role model on top of being an amazing soul! In any case I told her about some types of polishes I was dreaming of and the lovely lady whipped them up for me! Totally unexpected and totally amazing! One of which is featured here.
The Leo Dreams of Spring...lol I named it. It's supposed to be a polish based around my birthday month August. It features bits of green to represent the peridot birthstone, purples for royalty, and gold cause I likes to bling bling in a clear base ;) When I first saw this I just stared at it and stared at it. Shall I embarrass myself a bit and tell you a secret? I keep my CTs right on a shelf by my bed. They are my absolute favorite brand of polish and the only ones I treat this way (weirdo). Eh but you have to do what makes you happy. I paired TLDOS with I Make The Path (this is probably undoubtedly one of my favorite CT colors of all time!) for this mani.
