    Someone please remove the stupid comments, insulting the lady on the left of the photo who is probably the soldiers sister or mother.
    Show some respect.

    Continuo desanimada pra pintar as unhas ;/ Mas dessa vez além do calor é a TPM tbm aff.
    Essa misturinha eu criei inspirada na música Diamonds AQUI da minha Diva Rihanna ♥ Não consegui captar, mas ela tem uns brilhinhos holograficos no estilo Nina da Hits, e até parece que tem uns pozinhos de diamante rs. Gostei muitooooo, e ela cobre com uma camadinha ;))))))

    Shine bright like a diamond.. ♪

    "stupid comments ... respect"? Two people may look alike to others. I noticed that no one inserted any insults to go with the comment.
