Spring Pastels

It may (finally) be spring here in Canada! There is a forecast of more rain and snow over the weekend, but the temperatures remain positive, albeit just barely, and the view from the window in our loft is no longer obstructed entirely by snow. There are still mountains of snow everywhere, but it is slowly… Continue reading Spring Pastels

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello, folks! I have a manicure today that I did for a giveaway by Creative Shop. I love this brand, so how could I not participate? There is a new prompt each week and the theme for this week is “first greens”. I found this image of what look to be snowdrops, but I chose… Continue reading April Showers Bring May Flowers

A Single Man – Valentine’s Mani #2

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possesion of a large fortune, must be in want of wife…” Remember, last week when I posted my Valentine’s manicure, I said I was wearing something on my nails that totally had me guffawing?

I have mentioned before that I often post texture manis on Thursdays for #texturenailluminati. Last week, D of Nailluminati fame suggested we do Valentine’s-themed manis since the 14th (today) is a Thursday. I decided to go… Continue reading Uncharacteristic Love

Dotty Grits

Somewhere It’s Spring!

Good afternoon, folks! We’re buried under about a foot and a half of snow here! It’s been snowing for days, and pretty much all day yesterday we had snowfall alongside strong gusts which means a lot of snow blowing around. Mr ACD spent a good thirty minutes in -25°C chills to clear the walkway (while… Continue reading Somewhere It’s Spring!

Hello, folks! I’m in the middle of a very social day today. Baby ACD had a playdate in the morning, another one is coming up soon and then I’ll have a friend visit (baby – no one visits to see the mister & myself anymore!). Baby is worn out already and passed out in the… Continue reading Embroidered Silk Dress

A Head Full Of Ideas…

…And so little time to implement them! I’ve really been feeling my nail art these past couple of weeks. I find myself constantly thinking of what to do on my nails next, planning one manicure after another. I’m sure this intense craving for doing art is a phase and I just need to get it… Continue reading A Head Full Of Ideas…

Paisley Blues

Good morning, folks! I have another manicure today. I had an hour to play last night and decided to do this on my left hand only, with every intention of taking it off soon afterwards (I often derive more pleasure from the act of doing nail art rather than wearing it). However, I’m totally in… Continue reading Paisley Blues
