Sensationail Express Gel Nail – The Weekend Review

This year I decided to stop climbing. I was really enjoying bouldering but dedicating two evenings a week to it, plus trying to fit in the gym too was getting tricky. It’s also pretty expensive.

But obviously that was me and advising customers is another matter altogether so I always just tell them that I did it but that a) it wouldn’t last as long  ...
