31DC2017Weekly 16: Primarily Geometric

I’m going through a bit of a nail art slump. I think between this challenge and the daily swatches I’ve been doing for an untrieds challenge on Instagram, I’ve been dedicating too much of my brainspace to planning out nail polish. This was the third manicure I did for the geometric prompt of the 31DC,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 16: Primarily Geometric

31DC2017Weekly 15: Delicate Brocade

We’re halfway through with the 31DC2017Weekly! This week’s prompt is delicate print, and not only is the stamping pattern delicate, so is the base polish that shifts subtly from a green-leaning teal to a metallic yellowish-green. If you couldn’t tell from my posts, Tonic Polish is fast clawing its way up to the top of… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 15: Delicate Brocade

Curled Piece 1: ISA Professional Flat Iron Review & Loose Curls

I once went for a haircut and the stylist asked if she could have a go at curling my long hair. I told her I’d tried several times in the past, and that my hair neither curls well nor can it hold a curl beyond a couple of hours. She assured me she was a… Continue reading Curled Piece 1: ISA Professional Flat Iron Review & Loose Curls

31DC2017Weekly 14: Once & Floral

Hello! See what I did with the title? Lame, I know 😀 . I came across it on some webpage recently and just had to use it! I’m actually kind of cheating with this prompt because this is a mani I did back in March for a nail art contest hosted by Moyra (that I… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 14: Once & Floral

31DC2017Weekly 13: Sending Love & Hisses

Hello, folks! I’m here with the prompt of animal print for the 31DCweekly today, and this one’s always a challenge because I am not into animal prints at all! I do like them on animals, mind you, just not on people!!! So, for the second year, I decided to do snakeskin nails because snakes are… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 13: Sending Love & Hisses

31DC2017Weekly 11: Polka Dots

This week’s prompt for the 31DCWeekly is polka dots and there is nothing in the nail art sphere that makes me as happy & nostalgic as doing polka dot nails! As I’m sure is the case for many others, this was my doorway into the nail art world and I spent a good year using… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 11: Polka Dots

Tonic Polish Lunar Lust

Hello, there! As I mentioned in my last swatch post, it has become a bit of a sub-hobby to photograph bottles of shifty, multichrome polish, so I’ve decided to continue doing such (swatch?!?) posts for some of the more shifty ones. I received all my Tonic Polish polishes a while back, and am slowly trying… Continue reading Tonic Polish Lunar Lust

31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient

My mother says I must have been born upside down. As soon as I’m told not to do something, that’s the only thing in the world that appeals to me. So, today, on this day of mothers, I present the one thing I wasn’t ever going to do voluntarily: a rainbow gradient! Happy Mothers’ Day,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient
