The theme for the #halloweenforever collab last month was glow-in-the-dark pumpkins. During the making of this mani, I came to realize just how few of my plates contain pumpkin images, especially Halloweeny ones! I decided to go with a Victorian/gothic vibe. On my pinky finger, I am wearing two coats of L’Oreal Hidden Gems, a… Continue reading Gothic Pumpkin
Hello, all! The theme for the matte Mani collab this month was pumpkin spice lattès. I went with a plain pumpkin mani instead since I don’t have many coffee-themed plates. Little did I realize that I barely have any pumpkin-themed plates either! I don’t have much to say for this mani. It combines a few… Continue reading Gourd-geous Fall!
Hello! I haven’t participated in any nail art collabs since February, and finally managed to get manis done (and on time!) for both the #halloweenforever and the #mattemanimoms collabs! Yay! In fact, my last post was a mani I had originally done for the #mattemanimoms theme of abstract nails, but I didn’t send it in… Continue reading Illusion
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
*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
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
Hello, folks! I’m back for the last time this year with a mani I love. As with so many of my recent posts, it’s an old one from the camera roll, done in the late summer, but it’s a special one to me. I am in love with the base polish and the image I… Continue reading Lagoon
Hello, folks! Happy (merry?) Christmas Eve! I have a cute little mani to show today, one I did for the magnetic nail collab on Instagram. The theme was snow persons, and I went with this adorable little guy. On my ring finger, I am wearing two coats – with the second one magnetized – of… Continue reading Snow Adorable!
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
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
