I am not usually into pink nail polishes, but these Wet n Wild Wild Shine polishes caught my eye in Rexall the other day.  At only $1.49 on sale, Wet n Wild polishes are super affordable and great if you are starting out a collection or do not know what colours suit your skin tone.  These are from the Spring 2015 collection and out in stores now along with some new blues and nudes and piles of other new colours.[Read more]

Get Your Hands & Nails Summer Ready With Julep Hand Model
