TGIF: Thank Goodness, Indie Friday and The Digit-al Dozen Does Love and Heartbreak - Slick Lacquer

Welcome to the last day of The Digit-al Dozen Does Love and Heartbreak. It is also TGIF: Thank Goodness, Indy Indie Friday. Today I have Slick Lacquer's A Wink and a Nod. I saw swatches of this over at Gnarly Gnails and knew I had to have it!

But what does this have to do with love or heartbreak? It's love. The ampersand represents love to me. Let me explain. One year I was writing down all my siblings name with their spouses joined by an ampersand. So it was so & so and so & so, etc. I sighed out loud to my sister and said, "all I want for Christmas this year is an ampersand. I want to be joined with someone. I want to be Kirsten & someone". My 11 year-old nephew was there and heard that. He disappeared and showed up later with a wrapped ampersand cut out of construction paper. Ahhh! I still have this tucked safely in my drawer.

That is why I chose to stamp the ampersand image from Bundle Monster BM-311 using Konad White. I topped it off with HK Girl.

This polish is stunning! A nude grey with a shimmer! This is so so me! The formula of this polish fabulous and smooth! This is two coats! I love this polish!

Slightly shady here to show the warmer color of it.
