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.

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
