Transitioning

Hello! I’m going through a period of transition in several aspects of life, all at the same time. Not to mention, the weather outside is doing the same. In the spirit of this, I decided to post this gradient manicure today. I like gradients, but don’t end up doing them very often, and this was… Continue reading Transitioning

Rutaceae

Hello! Do you go through phases when you don’t quite feel like talking? When you’re feeling content and happy, but just quiet? It’s been that way for me with the blog. I have so many nail art posts pending, and even more being added each week as I’ve continued to do my nails, but I… Continue reading Rutaceae

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

…Just like the man whose feet are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit… 🎶🎵 When I was a child of about five or six years, my father would sing this song to me.

Life In Colour

Hello, folks! Today’s manicure is a tribute to my younger self (Narcissistic? Nah!). During my teenage years and for a long, long time afterwards, I was an avid player of The Sims. From the barebones and laughably simplistic first iteration to the rather lifelike platform today, I’ve played them all, sometimes for weeks on end,… Continue reading Life In Colour

Hello, there! So, remember my last post where I (naively, no doubt) made plans to get some weeding done and then do Fluid Friday nails, while Baby ACD enjoyed an activity-filled day at daycare? Yeah… Didn’t happen. This is how Thursday played out: Baby tossed and turned, wailed and screamed all night; consequently, I didn’t… Continue reading Free

Orange You Fern-y?

Hello, folks! I’m back with another old manicure, one of my favourites of this season! Glossy or matte? Most definitely matte for me! I realize matte top coat usually dulls the shimmer, but I just love the finish regardless. The base is two coats of Emily de Molly One And The Same, a gorgeous orange… Continue reading Orange You Fern-y?
