A Hole In The World

There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit that’s filled with people who are filled with shit, and the vermin of the world inhabit it. Hello, folks! Sweeney Todd has to be one of my most favourite musicals of all time, right up there with Cats and Sunday In The Park With… Continue reading A Hole In The World

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.

Magnetic Loops

Hello!

31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails

I really love galaxy nails, yet I never seem to think of doing them unless prompted by the dear 31DCWeekly each year!

NOTW: Lay Up or Out in Lavender?

To “lay something up in lavender”, means to store away carefully for future use and originates from the custom of storing fabric and other items with lavender in an attempt to preserve them or keep them smelling fresh. On the other hand, to “lay someone out in lavender”… Continue reading NOTW: Lay Up or Out in Lavender?

NOTW: Feathers in Ink

With the eleven Canada Day manicures and the month-long swatching of untried polishes on Instagram, I’ve been wearing too many colours that aren’t quite me. Today, I have a simple stamped manicure in my colours: The base is a polish I’ve waited months to get hold of: Tonic Polish Greenglow. I accidentally stumbled upon it… Continue reading NOTW: Feathers in Ink
