Our Big Surprise

Color me Sweet: DIY Edible Nail Art

My sister, Primrose, and I are OBSESSED with painting our nails.

The best part is Prim is an absolute master at nail art. I timed her once and she was able to accurately recreate the Birth of Venus on my thumb in two minutes and with only three colors. Of course…

The Mayover

A continuation of our Five Uses for Mayo for Your Cinco de Mayo Series.
