Happy Blogiversary!

Today marks  my 1 year Blogiversary!!  That crept up on my so fast - April completely flew by!  I decided that, to celebrate, I would re-do a mani featuring the first indie polish I ever got that started this whole indie nail polish journey of mine - "Smoke Gets In Her Eyes" by Colors by Llarowe!








"Smoke Gets In Her Eyes" is a light brown jelly with a dark pink/green shifting shimmer throughout.  Opaque in 2-3 coats, depending on how thick you layer - I did 3 thin coats and topped with HKGirl Glisten & Glow.

I won this beauty in a giveaway CbL had last year, and it is the first indie I ever owned!  I remember receiving it and thinking, "HOLY CRAP!  This is amazing!!"  It was unlike any polish I'd ever owned before, or seen in stores, and I knew I'd want more :)  Hundreds of bottles later, here I am :P

So funny looking back on the last year and all the things I accomplished - improving my clean-up and swatching process, improving my pictures, realizing I can do nail art and feeding that talent, establishing relationships with some pretty darn fantastic indies!  I've done a lot in a year with my little blog!  What started out as something I thought nobody would read, something that was just a fun thing for me to do outside of being a mom and a wife, has grown into a passion and a gateway to meeting some wonderful people in this industry, makers AND bloggers alike!  It's been so much fun, and I look forward to the next Blogiversary!

To celebrate my 1 year, I'll be doing a giveaway, most likely starting Monday, so keep your eyes peeled!
