Hypnotic Swirls Pedicure with Tonic Polish Glowy Joey and Passion Fruit

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Tonic Polish Glowy Joey, 2 coats as a base
Tonic Polish Passion Fruit

Hey everyone, it’s been a very stressful week. My external hard drive literally crashed – or rather, was crashed by one of my toddlers; I bought a new one but I don’t know how/can’t figure out to transfer information from the crashed one to the new one; next week is the last week of school; and a family member is missing.

At any rate, I’ve been changing my nails almost daily because it helps with the stress, even if I really like my nails. One thing that I haven’t done is re-do my pedicure. I’m hiding it after the jump if you don’t like feet.

This is a manicure from a long while back (hi, I’ve taken two weeks off from blogging, I’m behind). These two polishes worked just so right together, and the design worked beautifully on my (then) shorties.

I’m trying so hard to get photos edited and posts written and I should have another post for you this week with more Sally Hansen products – and a post featuring POC/WOC blogger Melissa Lopez. Please check back soon!
