I’m super excited about the new year but before we officially move on here at TDV I wanted to wrap up 2012.
It was a big year around here. The highlight probably being interviewed by CNN (seriously still can’t believe I talked to CNN about nail art….) for an article on Olympic nail art. But there were also some other awesome things that happened. Katie and I collaborated on a guest post for one of my favorite websites, Stylitics. Stylitics was also kind enough to feature me in their style spotlight. TDV was featured on elleandblair.com in one of their Member Spotlights. And probably the most unusual thing that happened in 2012 was being featured in the Dutch tennis magazine, Forty Love.
Despite all the outside things that were taking place our main focus was on this blog. The number of regular readers has grown so much over the past year and we really do appreciate all the comments, emails, tweets, etc offering your support and suggestions. If there is something you would like to see more of (or less!) over the next year please leave a comment! Whether it’s DIYs, nail art, coverage of a specific brand, etc, we love hearing y’alls suggestions.

Here’s to a fabulous 2013!
Can you believe I never posted this manicure? It was awesome! I used Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter then topped it with my DIY Gold Flake Top Coat. The ring finger is just copper leaf adhered to the nail with clear nail polish.
