31DC2017Weekly 5: Blue Diapers??!?!

Continuing with the accidental trend of white middle & ring fingers for the colour prompts of the 31DC, I made a quick & easy stamping mani this morning. I enthusiastically sent my sister a picture right away, as I often do, and she said they reminded her of diapers! Oh well, as long as it’s… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 5: Blue Diapers??!?!

NOTW: Gradient Creepers

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

NOTW: The Tell-Tale Heart

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
