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

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. I did this for the prompt of paisley for the #clairestelle8challenge and while there is nothing wrong with it per se, but I kinda hate it! The base is a… Continue reading Another Pillar Of Success

Zodiac

Hello! I am perpetually impressed by babies’ determination and grit. Today, I served Baby ACD spaghetti for lunch and didn’t even bother offering her utensils. I assumed she would go at it with her hands. Not only did she ask for a fork, she refused to use her hands at all, despite the fact that… Continue reading Zodiac

Cozy Plaid

Hello, folks! The latest prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram was “prugly colours” – for those of you not familiar with the term, that means pretty ugly. I guess the word can be interpreted in a number of ways. It could mean neither pretty, nor ugly; or pretty ugly; or, in my opinion, something ugly… Continue reading Cozy Plaid

November Rain

Rain? No, we’re literally too cool for that here in Canada, so it’s snow for us. Inches deep, frosty breath, what-was-I-thinking-walking-out-in-my-boots chilling! But, I don’t usually mind; I love the snow and the cold. Except this week, it has led to a number of major inconveniences. I had my road test earlier this week, and… Continue reading November Rain

Lest We Forget

Hello, folks! Four days in a row? That’s a blogging first for me! I’m back today with a mani for Remembrance Day. It is also the prompt du jour for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram. This is the third, and hopefully last, mani that I had a lot of trouble photographing and later realized that my… Continue reading Lest We Forget

Woodland Creatures

Hello, folks! I am so sleepy at the moment, I don’t have much to say at all, but I really wanted to try and post this before hitting the sack. So, let’s dive right into it! I have a couple of very autumnal manis lined up. The first is for the prompt of the #clairetelle8challenge… Continue reading Woodland Creatures

Falling Leaves

Hello, folks! After all the Halloween madness, I am finally getting around to posting my mani for the #magneticmagicnail collab for October. The theme was autumn leaves, and this is what I came up with: It did not come through in the pictures at all, but the base polish is a magnetic, Moon Gate by… Continue reading Falling Leaves

Slasher

Hello, folks! It’s Halloween tomorrow and I have not one, but two manis to post tonight. I’ve made no secret of just how much I love Halloween, and we’ve gone the extra mile and actually decorated this year. Baby ACD is going trick or treating for the first time in her short life, dressed as… Continue reading Slasher

Something Wicked

Hello! I’m back sooner than expected, because I did manage to do my “gruesome graveyard” mani for the #clairestelle8challenge after all! I had to resort to using nail tips (aka, fake nails) since I did them over several days and life didn’t get in the way of drying time. I bought a pack of fake… Continue reading Something Wicked
