Present In Death

Hello, there! Have you ever read the short story by Hector Hugh Munro called The Open Window? [Read it here if you haven’t!] It is a story of how even in death people can very much has a strong presence in a house (…with a twist at the end, of course).

31DC2016Weekly 25: Inspired by fashion

The prompt for this week is “inspired by fashion” and the first thought that jumped into my mind was to do a manicure based on one of the many gorgeous outfits Eva Green’s character in Penny Dreadful wears. Despite its shortcomings, I rather like the show, and I spend a sizeable portion of my time… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 25: Inspired by fashion

31DC2016Weekly 15: Delicate Print

As you can see, I kind of tried to obliterate the pattern on my ring finger, but I think it turned out… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 15: Delicate Print

Ever my favourite pattern, I decided to go with a… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 11: Polka Dots

31DC2016Weekly 5: Blue

It’s day #5 of the nail art challenge, and the prompt for the day is “blue”. This colour is never an issue for me, and if you’ve perused my gallery, you’ll notice I use a lot of dots. Nonetheless, with all my effort to learn new techniques, I’ve been missing my dotted manicures, and this… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 5: Blue

31DC2016Weekly 3: Yellow

The prompt for day #3 of the 31 day nail art challenge is “yellow”. I’ve been meaning to try two new techniques for weeks now – dry brushing and fishtail braids (and no, I’m not talking about hair!). Earlier this week, I saw Flight of Whimsy’s beautiful braid manicure and got inspired! So today, I… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 3: Yellow
