Nail Friday

My first post in 2015!

And we are 3 weeks into 2015, can’t believe how time flies!

This is the ‘icon’ nail deco from Ciate, the caviar nail art.

The first time I laid my hands on REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bail Oil, my affair with oil started since then.  It was my first time trying my bath, and I fell in love with it right away!
