Hiya, folks! Today marks a year since I started this blog 😀 (incidentally, this post is also my 100th, another milestone!). So, of course, Mr. ACD and I shared a cupcake to celebrate last night (and then bought a second one for good measure, because we also need to celebrate tonight, the day of!) It’s… Continue reading My First Blogiversary!
Hiya, folks! I’m back with another weekly mani, this time a re-creation of one by the immensely talented @magic.polish on Instagram. They are hosting a giveaway to celebrate reaching 10k followers, and this is my entry for the giveaway. Here it is, along with an inlay of their’s: To do this, I applied a base… Continue reading NOTW: Re-creation of “Magic Polish’s” Mani
Hello, and welcome back to yet another week of the 31DC2017Weekly! The prompt for this week is yellow, so I did a fun banana-themed mani with two accent nails: On my thumb, index and pinky fingers, I’m wearing two coats of OPI Good Grief, topped with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Top Coat in Pixel Perfect.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 3: Bananas For Nail Art!
I had no idea what to call this mani (you could tell, couldn’t you?). This was one of my first manicures this year, and after my month-long vacation I was stamping everything upside down for some reason! It’s a little dull, no doubt, and I had to edit the pictures a bit to get the… Continue reading NOTW: Gradient Creepers
The lovely Sally from Quietly Mad nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award this week. Thanks, Sally! I’ve never been nominated for a blog award before, so suffice it to say I’m super thrilled & grateful 😀 Here are the rules: Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link their blog… Continue reading One Lovely Blog Award
Hello, folks! Here’s the second installment of the 31DC2017Weekly — a skittlette mani with a mix of leadlighting, glitter and some grungy sponging. Here are some shots in the sunlight: On my ring and middle fingers, I applied 3 coats of OPI So Many Clowns… So Little Time. This may be my favourite off-white polish yet;… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 2: Orange Skittlette
Ever since I bought Zoya Pixie Dust Lorna, I’ve been thinking of a glittering, shimmering heart. Incidentally, I did this mani the day after Valentine’s Day this year. Unfortunately, that was a very busy day for me and I ended up taking very hurried, very bad pictures. I only managed to salvage three near-workable ones,… Continue reading NOTW: The Tell-Tale Heart
Hello, folks! I’m kicking off the weekly version of the 31-day nail art challenge 2017 (aka, 31DC2017Weekly) with a marbled blobbicure inspired by the amazing Colette (@mysimplelittlepleasures), who, in turn, credits it to Eugenia (@laqvid). Now, in case you’re wondering where the red is: I assure you, the base colour is a deep, rich burgundy… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 1: Red Blobbicure
Hiya, all! Amy McG of Polish Etc. is co-hosting the weekly version of the 31-day nail art challenge again this year, for the second year in a row. It follows the same prompts as the 31-day challenge that takes place in the month of September each year, but is spaced out over 31 weeks instead,… Continue reading Join The 31-Day Nail Art Challenge Weekly!
I couldn’t decide whether to name this manicure “grassy swirls” or “swirly grass”. Either way, that’s the visual I had in mind when I did this mani — wind blowing through a field of grass. I had started out hoping that the blue stamping polish would be more vibrant over and cover up more of the… Continue reading NOTW: Grassy Swirls
