candy crush
Stylish combos are the spice of life, right? And here at MDC, we are all about spicing things up, especially when it comes to nails. In the past we’ve played around with lots of fun pairings: manis and sneakers, pedis and sandals, nails and denim, etc. Well, our latest obsession has been with jewelry, so much so that we decided to spotlight fun manis with equally fun arm candy. We enlisted the help of our expert contributor and celeb nail artist Kait Mosh to pair up our digits with dazzling jewelry!
