Rescue Beauty: Catherine from The Wives of Henry VIII Line

Here are better representations of my nails. Now, to note: I am not a professional and I am still learning.

Again, this is Rescue Beauty Lounge in the Catherine color from The Wives of Henry VIII. I believe it is still available, or it may be in her BIB selection (the out-of-stock colors that are too popular to let it die out).

Show Note
*  Introduction : Name is Jay. I'm a late 20’s San Francisco Bay area native work at law firm but dreams of one day living with books. Been knitting since 12 years old. Been obsessed with nails for 3. Wanted to do a podcast that merged my love for knits and my obsession of nails. And since I am a librarian, there will also be talk of books.

Format of podcast - The structure of it all.
