For the last 7 days I haven’t swatched a single polish. I sat here and stared at all the pretties on my desk and couldn’t do much about it! Last week I sliced my ring finger, right on the cuticle edge and it hurt like hell to use remover, but it also looked pretty nasty for photos, so I had to wait for it to heal a bit. It’s finally almost healed up, but it still doesn’t look too pretty. For macros now I’m using my middle finger instead of the ring finger so you don’t have to get all up close and personal with it. I finally was able to use remover without tearing up, so I can finally show you the July 2016 G.N.O.M.E. Box!
What is G.N.O.M.E.? It stands for Glitter Nerds Of Magical Existence! Rica and Stardust Polish are two brands that are constant in this three polish box, and each month there is a guest maker. July 2016’s guest maker is Pipe Dream Polish.
Let’s look at each polish, and purchasing information will be at the end of the post.
