This week’s prompt for the 31DCWeekly is polka dots and there is nothing in the nail art sphere that makes me as happy & nostalgic as doing polka dot nails! As I’m sure is the case for many others, this was my doorway into the nail art world and I spent a good year using… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 11: Polka Dots
My mother says I must have been born upside down. As soon as I’m told not to do something, that’s the only thing in the world that appeals to me. So, today, on this day of mothers, I present the one thing I wasn’t ever going to do voluntarily: a rainbow gradient! Happy Mothers’ Day,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient
I’m alive!!! The past month has been insane, but I survived & I’m back with the 31DC prompt of rainbow nails. Now, rainbow nails are definitely not my buzz, but I tried… I have two versions; one I did by mistake the week of the metallic prompt (on the left below), and then I redid… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 9: Feline Rainbow
I’ll be glad to be done with posting metallic nails for this challenge. I don’t like wearing metallic polish as a base colour, but I stamp with them all the time. In fact, just a little while ago, I bought a few more foils from Color Club to stamp with. Yet, this is probably the… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic
Hello! As they say, when it rains, it pours; and so it is with my blogging this week. I not only posted thrice this week, but the two I did today were rather wordy. Mr. ACD is away for the weekend, and I haven’t really spoken much for two days now; my brain is not… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White
It’s Week 6 of the 31DC2017Weekly, and I will admit I’m a little glad that I can now stop doing white middle & ring fingers! No one asked me to, true, but I noticed that was what I had done for three consecutive weeks and decided to continue until the end of the colour prompts.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room
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??!?!
Hello, and welcome back to yet another week of the 31DC2017Weekly! We’re doing green nails this week and technically it is supposed to be spring, so I’ll ignore the raging blizzard outside & post this springy manicure: On my thumb, index & pinky fingers, I’m wearing two coats of the gorgeous Reminisce by ILNP. (I… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 4: Springing Green
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!
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
