Colour Me Gobbled

Hello, folks! The final prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge for this month is Thanksgiving feathers and I quite like how this one turned out. I combined some of my favourite polish finishes in this mani – textures, a glitter crelly and a soft white polish on my ring finger that I wish I had left plain… Continue reading Colour Me Gobbled

Another Pillar Of Success

Hello, folks! If failure is the pillar of success, then I’m another step closer to epic success with this mani I have to share today. I did this for the prompt of paisley for the #clairestelle8challenge and while there is nothing wrong with it per se, but I kinda hate it! The base is a… Continue reading Another Pillar Of Success

Frosty

Hello, folks! I feel as if it has been aeons since I posted a mani on the same day I did it. But, miracles do happen, and here I am doing just that! It has been warm out (relatively, only about 0°C at the moment), but I’ve really been feeling this frosty, snowflake-y mani. Sometimes,… Continue reading Frosty

Charismatic Owls

Hello! There’s something about owls. I’ve loved them since I was a very young child, and the very first prize I ever won in my life, incidentally, was a jute owl toy. The sagacity of owls has long been chronicled in every work of fiction I’ve ever come across, and who can ignore the hypnotic… Continue reading Charismatic Owls

Zodiac

Hello! I am perpetually impressed by babies’ determination and grit. Today, I served Baby ACD spaghetti for lunch and didn’t even bother offering her utensils. I assumed she would go at it with her hands. Not only did she ask for a fork, she refused to use her hands at all, despite the fact that… Continue reading Zodiac

Cozy Plaid

Hello, folks! The latest prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram was “prugly colours” – for those of you not familiar with the term, that means pretty ugly. I guess the word can be interpreted in a number of ways. It could mean neither pretty, nor ugly; or pretty ugly; or, in my opinion, something ugly… Continue reading Cozy Plaid

November Rain

Rain? No, we’re literally too cool for that here in Canada, so it’s snow for us. Inches deep, frosty breath, what-was-I-thinking-walking-out-in-my-boots chilling! But, I don’t usually mind; I love the snow and the cold. Except this week, it has led to a number of major inconveniences. I had my road test earlier this week, and… Continue reading November Rain

Lest We Forget

Hello, folks! Four days in a row? That’s a blogging first for me! I’m back today with a mani for Remembrance Day. It is also the prompt du jour for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram. This is the third, and hopefully last, mani that I had a lot of trouble photographing and later realized that my… Continue reading Lest We Forget

Rain, a.k.a Fall-ing Fluid

Hello! I finally did a mani for Fluid Friday after almost a month! And boy, have I missed them! The colour palette for this week’s #fluidfridayfriends was a lovely mix of fall colours: I tried a new method for making my decals/puddles, following the lovely @bwidix on Instagram. I started by laying down a base… Continue reading Rain, a.k.a Fall-ing Fluid
