Revlon Nail Art Chalkboard

Revlon Nail Art Polka dots I bought this months ago and because of my rather large collection of nail polish, well it got lost in my collection a bit and I never really got around to using it.  So as part of my recent motivation to test out and use my makeup products I’ve also […]
