Purchased by Me buttonHey everyone! I hope your week is swimming along. So far I’ve avoided getting the cold that everyone else here has (knock on wood), but otherwise it’s been kind of a crappy week. Which is why I thought I could cheer myself up with a new mani. I spied Don Deeva Varnish Notorious P.E.E. sitting on my desk unused so I thought I’d try it on.

Don Deeva Varnish Acid Crush swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning all! I gotta tell you, I’m exhausted. Lately I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, taking care of my family and my household, trying to exercise daily and eat right and at the end of the day, I’m just dead. Which has been leaving little time for swatching or even wearing my pretty polishes! This brings me to a polish I did actually get to wear for a few days, Don Deeva Varnish Acid Crush, a white to reddish holographic thermal.
