Blossom into Spring with China Glaze!

I am so excited for this collection I can hardly stand it. Gorgeous pastels paired with China Glaze's perfect formula is a recipe for perfection!

The release is set for March... can't wait!

Which polishes will you be picking up- Brights, Pastels, or both?

Spring is here and China Glaze® is blossoming with vibrant color with its new collection, Avant Garden. The delectable palette flows between soft hues and vibrant pops of color, offering an unconventional bouquet of cheerful and vivid shades. Take a stroll down the China Glaze® path, passing a bubbling brook of light and bright blues. Take in the view of the mossy green meadow and stop to enjoy the fragrant flowers of soft pink and white.  Let Avant Garden take you away to a playful, romantic field of color and innovation this Spring.

Hiii! How are you all?? I'm back after a month-and-some-change mini hiatus. During this time, I've

-received a new camera
-bought tons of clothes, oops
-missed you all bunches
-severely lacked on my cuticle care
-made a resolution to be a much better blogger.

I know I won't be a one post per day blogger like so many of my lovely friends simply because I don't know what my day will bring when I wake up. I'm sure it's the same for all of you, but what I mean is I don't know how I'll feel until I get out of bed, so it really depends on that. Some days there just isn't energy to spare, and then my blogging suffers. At least we're on the same page so you won't be too disappointed- I hope not anyway!

I have a gorgeous new Nikon D3000 and I'm learning how to use it. I didn't want to come back with NOTDs until I knew a little about what it can do and how it will effect the way I take pictures. It's bigger than my previous camera and has taken some serious getting used to, but it's such a joy. I'm thrilled with it.

At Christmas I had the shortest little pitiful nubbly nubs, but the length is finally getting back to where I like it. I'm going to do some Monthly Favorites posts and in these I'll include the best nail growth stimulators, files, cuticle care products, etc. I'm also considering some Outfit Of the Day posts too!

I appreciate you all so much for sticking around while I frolic back and forth between normal and WTF.

Can't wait to get back to business! <3
