Sometimes when I type on my computer, I remember typing up papers on my mom’s old typewriter. There’s just something about the clickety-clack of typewriter keys that just is so satisfying. Of course, it’s utterly frustrating to mess up and not have a backspace key. 😀

Oh my gosh you all, it’s Doctor Who Day! The new Doctor premieres today and I’m so excited and jumping up and down. I’m unsure about a female Doctor but I’m more than willing to see where this newest season takes us.
Anyway…I’ve shown you swatches of the newest P.O.P Polishes and yesterday you saw two nail art manicures with a few of those new polishes. I really wanted to do something interesting with the blacklight reactive top coat from P.O.P Polish besides using it for its intended purpose. I decided to created swirled decals. I looked around and found some polishes that looked nice together, which included a magnetic and a mainstream blacklight reactive polish.
