Half-Year Roundup - Favorite Manis and Swatches from the First Half of 2013

Nothing to Disclose
*Any PR products were disclosed in the original posts

I thought I'd just do a quick Photo post showing all my favorite manicures from the first half of this year...I can't believe how much I've embraced nail art this year!

All of the manicures shown are mine from my blog posts from January 1, 2013 through today. Yes I realize I'm a little late but better late than 14 pages of "roundup" at the end of the year!
