Valentine Nails!

First I painted my nails white and allowed to dry several minutes.
Second I free-handed a dark pink heart with the Sally Hansen quick-dry polish using an X-like stroke.
Third I used a Sally Hansen glitter polish over top.

Inside My Purse!!!

It seemed to be getting heavier and heavier, so in light of the new year and my organizing resolutions, I decided to do a little cleaning out!!!
