2012: my favorite manicures and moments

Happy New Years Eve! Well, to those in America.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season... I definitely did. Christian came and we spent the 24th with my family and the 25th with his. It was fantastic!

Overall, 2012 was a great year for me. One step closer to getting my psychology degree, getting much, much better at nail art, 1 year closer till Christian gets out of the Marine Corps, him returning from Afghanistan, our first time living together... it was great. Here's to hoping 2013 is even BETTER!

I know I haven't been posting as much as I should. Uh... last post was over 3 months ago. I'll just try not to think about that.

Here's my manicure for the new year!

For the next year, do you guys have any requests of what I could post? I rarely wear makeup, but I do my nails every day and I cook/bake a lot. So, what would you like to see?

Have a great New Years! Much love to all.
