I have had these travel themed water decals sitting in my nail art stash forever.  Since the Canadian Beauty Bloggers theme of the month is British Beauty, seemed like a great time to try out the Big Ben decals from this pack.  The travel pack has a mix of London, Paris and Pisa decals even though it is named the Big Ben Pattern.  I am pretty sure by British Beauty, they meant British brands but whatever… I want Big Ben[Read more]
