Tonic Polish Lizard Dance

Ever since Baby ACD was born, my husband and I have been pretty much obsessing over baby poop. The bulk of our daily conversation deals with the colour, consistency and frequency of poop. As all the mothers out there will attest to, there is a particular range of colours on baby poop colour spectrum, often… Continue reading Tonic Polish Lizard Dance

Tonic Polish Rainbowfish

Hello! Another beauty from Tonic Polish for you today. This one came out in the debut collection in 2016 and I successfully talked myself out of snagging this one until about a month ago. All it took was one look at the bottle in real life to fall wildly in love; I can’t believe it… Continue reading Tonic Polish Rainbowfish

Tonic Polish Peacock Parade

Hello! It’s been a rough couple of weeks with Baby ACD. We think she is teething, and has been very fussy, and I’ve barely had a moment to myself. Thankfully, Mr ACD just began his paternity leave and has been spending a lot of time looking after her, so I’ve had some relief this week.… Continue reading Tonic Polish Peacock Parade

Non-dairy Chocolate Mousse

About a month after my little girl was born, we found out she was allergic to a certain protein in dairy. Apparently this is very common in infants and most of them outgrow it within the first six months of their lives. Since I was nursing her, I had to learn all kinds of modifications… Continue reading Non-dairy Chocolate Mousse

Altered and controlled, but delighted!

Hello, folks! Long time, no see! I wholeheartedly apologize for being off the radar for so long without an explanation. I had not expected to take such a long hiatus, but I kept thinking I would do a “proper explanation” and that just kept getting delayed. So here goes: I’ve been busy growing this little… Continue reading Altered and controlled, but delighted!

31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

I knew I was going to use this polish for the colour inspiration prompt as soon as I placed my order several months ago — this is An Unexpected Journey by Glam Polish. This is one of those of shades I almost think of as a lack of colour; mind you, that’s not the same… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

31DC2017Weekly 20: Watermarble Skittlette

Watermarbles… I cannot complain that I have the worst experience with them, but I definitely lack experience. For a grand total of six or seven watermarble designs I’ve attempted in my life, I know only two patterns — stripes and random marble. So, this time, I wanted to try the classic watermarble petals because one… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 20: Watermarble Skittlette

NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

Roses and I have never quite gotten along. I’ve always thought they are a bit overrated. I think I’ve moved away from active dislike and towards indifference over the years, but I don’t usually gravitate towards rose patterns. Then came my Drk Nails Designer 1 plate, with a gorgeous image of wild roses and I… Continue reading NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails

I really love galaxy nails, yet I never seem to think of doing them unless prompted by the dear 31DCWeekly each year! I decided to go super-sparkly today and used almost all holo polishes for a blingy mani 😀 The base polish is A-England Natasha’s Dance. I sponged on the galaxy using A-England Queen Of… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails
