NB: I bought some of these items and some were gifts.

Making use of the recently released Zoya textured nail polishes.  They remind me of candied citrus peel.  Check out my review on the whole collection here.  Paired it with China Glaze’s Gussied Up Green.

Today is the first day of spring! Mentally, I am already barreling towards summer!
