Serenity & A Special Message

Hello lovely readers! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for keeping up with me, reading my posts, and taking the time to look at my nail art. I really do love sitting at my desk and escaping for a little while each time I paint my nubs! That being said, I've always tried to keep you all up to date on other parts of my life, including my goals and aspirations. Medical school is quickly approaching (as in classes start next week!) and as much as I'd love to think I can still post 2-3 times per week, I want to make clear that I will have to take a step back and focus on classes, studying, and doing my very best! I'm also sure this will still be something I use as an escape whenever I need a break! Please forgive me for what's coming: posts less often, on no particular schedule, but they will appear! I will continue to do as many product reviews as I possibly can, especially with my favorite Indie polish makers and mainstream polish makers. There are some brands I will forever cherish and continue to work with as long as I can! Of course, I will always sprinkle in nail art; it was my first love and I can't give it up! I just felt the need to be honest and forthcoming about the future of Miss Mani Monster because you are all so important to me and you deserve to be aware! Meanwhile, of course, I have a little something on my nails for you. Two of my all time favorites: Liquid Sky Lacquer Pure Luxury and Emily De Molly Serenity. Seriously? Perfection.

Perfect in Purple

Press Sample
Between all these indie polishes available, I'm seriously overwhelmed. Today I paired up the GORGEOUS Enchanted Polish Keep Watch, a limited edition with Mishka, with Delush Polish Destined for Grapeness. I can't stop staring. Destined for Grapeness is perfectly opaque after two coats, and super smooth and shiny with topcoat! What can I possibly say about Keep Watch? It's just perfect. Here it is!
