Whatcha up to this weekend, kiddos? I’ve got a bunch of photos and swatching to do, including these OCC Moderncraft nail lacquers. It’s all I can do to not stay up all night and get these on my nails NOW. And wait until you see the matching Lip Tars. I can safely say this is my favorite OCC launch ever.
