My second guest blogger is Julie from Short & Sweet in Texas. I have been following Julie’s blog for some time, and I just love it! She does incredible designs, and is not afraid to change her nail shape and length (personally, I would be terrified). For your viewing pleasure, Julie put together some beautiful subtle winter stamping and a glitter accent. I’ll need to remember these in the desert in Israel!

of Jessica’s Wedding Bells because I wanted a little extra sparkle
(not that the Brucci needed it. JWB is a stunning silver metallic all
