In Glowing Terms

I’ve been busy with guests these past few weeks. It’s getting quite chilly here – in fact, we even had a day of snow a couple of weeks ago. It was Baby ACD’s first experience of being out in the snow. My cousin was visiting that weekend with her family, and it her was children’s first exposure to snow as well, and they had an absolute blast making snowmen & snow angels and having snowball fights! Baby ACD didn’t react very much to the snowfall, but seemed happy to be out and watching her cousins.

It’s been a while since I have had the time to do my nails, much less try out some random nail art – you know, the kind where you have no preconceived idea of where you want it to go and just do whatever seems to suit your fancy. Those don’t always work out, but I love this one.

I used Light of Lyra, which is from Tonic Polish’s debut collection. It is a bright purple crème, with a strong aqua shimmer. I didn’t take the plunge on buying this until this year because I wasn’t sure that particular shade of purple would suit my skin tone. I am so glad I did, because this one is so unique and is definitely a keeper. It glows from within and lights up your entire hand! I have nothing but praise for this polish, hence the title of this post.

The contrast is to die for. I didn’t really want to cover up this gorgeous polish with a lot of nail art, so I went with stamping on two fingers only.

I stamped with Moyra plate-20 (Orientalist) and Moyra black stamping polish. On the other fingers and thumb, I used the same black polish and a dotting tool to make the dots. I wore this both glossy and matte, and love it either way. (It’s not often that I like the glossy version of anything as much as the matte, so that’s yet another nod to how gorgeous this polish is!)

Now for some macros. I took a bunch of pictures and couldn’t pick between them.

I hope I’ll be able to post more in December. I’m really exhausted and sleep-deprived, so this is where I’ll sign off. Until the next post, keep warm!

  1. We haven’t had any snow yet (fingers crossed it stays this way), but I’m happy to hear your baby liked the snow. 🙂
    I looove this mani. The matte version looks just as gorgeous as the glossy one. This polish is absolutely stunning!
