The Reason For The Seasons

Hello, folks! If you hate the cold winters and wish it were summer all year long, you can blame the Greek goddess Persephone. The myth goes that once flowers used to bloom and fruit would grow all year round. Wherever the goddess Demeter and her daughter, Persephone, would tread, some form of life would grow.… Continue reading The Reason For The Seasons

Night Elf Duo By Treo Lacquer

*PR Sample Hello, folks! Today I have for you my very first swatching gig! I was kindly sent the Night Elf duo by Amanda of Treo Lacquer. These are two thermal polishes inspired by Tyrande Whisperwind and her husband, Malfurion Stormrage, from the World of Warcraft. Both polishes shift from a clear/pale grey in the… Continue reading Night Elf Duo By Treo Lacquer

Hot Chocolate Vibes

Hello! I’m determined to try and do as many of the #fluidfridayfriends prompts as I can after the long break last year, so even though I was far from thrilled to see this mostly-brown palette this week, I dove headfirst into it anyway. And guess what, I really liked the outcome! I used Tonic Polish… Continue reading Hot Chocolate Vibes

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

Rain, a.k.a Fall-ing Fluid

Hello! I finally did a mani for Fluid Friday after almost a month! And boy, have I missed them! The colour palette for this week’s #fluidfridayfriends was a lovely mix of fall colours: I tried a new method for making my decals/puddles, following the lovely @bwidix on Instagram. I started by laying down a base… Continue reading Rain, a.k.a Fall-ing Fluid

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

Good Gourd!

Hello! I’m back with another mani for the #clairestelle8challenge and today’s theme is petrifying pumpkins. I’ve have a rough day with Baby ACD and am both stressed and exhausted, so let’s dive right into it without more yapping on this end. On my middle to pinky fingers, I’m wearing two coats of the gorgeous Tonic… Continue reading Good Gourd!
