Nail Polish Polooza Giveaway!

Over the years my love of nail polish has grown immensely!  I remember back in the 90s when I would get acrylics done and air brush nail art.  I wish I would have taken pictures of them because they would defintely be cause for a good laugh now.  Fast forward to now and my love of nail polish has grown to my love of nail art.  I can’t even tell you all how much time and energy I’ve wasted used watching endless videos on YouTube trying to perfect some of the nail art.  There’s sharpie nail art, water marbling, gradient with a sponge…the list goes on!  And the only thing I’ve determined is that I suck at them all…LOL!

Let’s be real my skills are lacking but I love trying to attempt all that foolishness even though I know they are gonna be an epic fail.  Now in my quest to become a “pro” with nail art I’ve accumulated A LOT of polish.  And lately I find myself buying new colors only to realize I have something almost the same at home…smh.  So I’ve decided to partner up with Naturally Steallar and have an awesome giveaway filled with 16 polishes, a few lippies, mascara and eyeshadow palletes in our nail polish polooza.  I mean I can only wear so much polish at a time.

As the weeks pass by the weather has been getting warmer in our part of the country, but my daughter still insisted on wearing a sweater and leggings with her skirts to school.  I didn’t really pay much attention to it until it got hot!  So I finally asked her if she didn’t want anyone to see her beauty spots.  At first she dismissed it and then said yes.  I can’t even tell you all how much that hurt me inside.  I’ve been trying to approach talking about her vitiligo with her delicately because I know she’s not comfortable when I ask her about it.  I asked her if any of the kids said anything to her and she said yes but couldn’t remember.   [Read more…]
