A Plaid Kick

Hello, folks! I’ve really been on a plaid kick and did a bunch of plaid manis back to back. I recently found out there’s a matte mani collaboration on Instagram, and given how much I love matte, how could I refrain from joining? The theme for November was recreation of a friend’s mani (in fall… Continue reading A Plaid Kick

Colour Me Gobbled

Hello, folks! The final prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge for this month is Thanksgiving feathers and I quite like how this one turned out. I combined some of my favourite polish finishes in this mani – textures, a glitter crelly and a soft white polish on my ring finger that I wish I had left plain… Continue reading Colour Me Gobbled

Bloodthirsty

Hello! We’re on a roadtrip at the moment and while Baby ACD is having a much, much better time of it than the last time we did this in July, I’m still feeling exhausted trying to keep her entertained.

Double, Double, Toil And Trouble

Hello! Witches for the #clairestelle8challenge today, and this mani took more time to do than I had anticipated. The base is three thin coats of the beautiful Tonic Polish Dragon Tears from the Holiday 2016 collection (and currently selling in store, so if you want to pause and run over, GO!). It is a super-shifty… Continue reading Double, Double, Toil And Trouble

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

Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Hello, folks! Baby ACD has been having a rough week. Between a cold and stuffy nose, and cutting two new teeth, sleep has not been very restful. Needless to say, I have been grasping at every minute of sleep I can have. At the end of a week or so of this, I am quite… Continue reading Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Movember Mani Challenge

Hiya! I have a quick manicure to share with you before I hit the sack. I did this for a Movember challenge. On my index and middle fingers, I’m wearing one coat of Cirque Colors Urbanized. I double-stamped over it with a tweed pattern and Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then Bundle Monster (Maniology)… Continue reading Movember Mani Challenge
