Pin It  Sunday already? Aww mann. It's swatch fest day and movies in my house today haha. Today's post is a pretty little polish by Lex Cosmetics!

Lex Cosmetics Tuileries
In March/April-ish I was beyond obsessed with any sort of glitter in a milky base haha. I still like them! Just not "OMG I HAVE TO HAVE THEM ALL" like a few months ago xP But, once I saw Tuileries I knew I had to have it!

Who doesn't enjoy a milky based glitter polish?!
