A Grave Misunderstanding

Hello, folks! It seems I may have misunderstood the instructions to socially distance and extended them to social media as well! Oopsie! Better late than never, right? Jokes aside, how have you all been? I have sorely missed this blog and nail art and downtime in general. I began a new job in March, and… Continue reading A Grave Misunderstanding

Vampy Valentine’s Mani

Hello! I’m back today with a fluid mani for #fluidfridayfriends. The suggested palette, though half of it was red and therefore outside my comfort zone, was deliciously dark and vampy. For the fluid art puddles, I used the following polishes: Sally Hansen Rapid Red (bright red), AEngland Anne Boleyn (deep oxblood red holo), Tonic Polish… Continue reading Vampy Valentine’s Mani

Fighter

Hello, folks! I’m back sooner than I’d planned because I’m going to try and avoid a huge backlog of manis again! An Instagram friend and fellow nail art/polish lover, Danielle, has recently been having a difficult time with life in general, so a few of us got together and created manis in her favourite colours… Continue reading Fighter

Laws Of Attraction

Hello! It’s been ages since my last post, or so it feels like! We’ve been a sick, sick household – first Baby came down with a cold and then conjunctivitis/pink eye, which she promptly and generously shared with me. I then caught a cold, and I daresay the flu (but who has time for doctors),… Continue reading Laws Of Attraction

Lunar New Year

Hello, folks! I’m a day late, but a very happy Chinese (Lunar) New Year to you! This month, the prompt for the #halloweenforevercollab on Instagram was rats, since it is the year of the rat in the lunar calendar. I overthought this mani wildly, and ended up with zero terrifying ideas, so I just went… Continue reading Lunar New Year

The Reason For The Seasons

Hello, folks! If you hate the cold winters and wish it were summer all year long, you can blame the Greek goddess Persephone. The myth goes that once flowers used to bloom and fruit would grow all year round. Wherever the goddess Demeter and her daughter, Persephone, would tread, some form of life would grow.… Continue reading The Reason For The Seasons

Night Elf Duo By Treo Lacquer

*PR Sample Hello, folks! Today I have for you my very first swatching gig! I was kindly sent the Night Elf duo by Amanda of Treo Lacquer. These are two thermal polishes inspired by Tyrande Whisperwind and her husband, Malfurion Stormrage, from the World of Warcraft. Both polishes shift from a clear/pale grey in the… Continue reading Night Elf Duo By Treo Lacquer

Hot Chocolate Vibes

Hello! I’m determined to try and do as many of the #fluidfridayfriends prompts as I can after the long break last year, so even though I was far from thrilled to see this mostly-brown palette this week, I dove headfirst into it anyway. And guess what, I really liked the outcome! I used Tonic Polish… Continue reading Hot Chocolate Vibes

That’s Bugging Me!

Hello! I haven’t been very motivated to post lately or be on social media very much. This lack of sunshine is really getting to me now. I think vacation and home combined, we’ve had about 3 days of sunshine since November! It’s gloomy and sad outside, so that’s how we’re feeling on the inside too.… Continue reading That’s Bugging Me!

Marled Knit Fluid Art

Hello, and a happy new year to all my readers! It’s been busy since we got back home from our month-long vacation, and we’re finally settling back into some semblance of routine. Baby ACD has gone back to daycare this week, which means I’ve had a little bit of time for nail arting. And what… Continue reading Marled Knit Fluid Art
