Hello, folks! I had not quite intended to post on two consecutive days, but I did a mani for an Instagram friend’s birthday and I only realized her birthday was yesterday after I had posted my last mani. The goal was to recreate one of the birthday girl’s manis, and I chose this lovely delicate… Continue reading Faith, Trust And A Little Bit Of Pixie Dust
Hello! I have a very simple mani to share today. I wore this one all of five days, including to the road test on Tuesday. Didn’t bring any luck, but was super pretty anyway. The base is two coats of Night Owl Lacquer Marchtember Oneteenth, a white to blue thermal polish with rainbow flakies. I… Continue reading Lacy
Hello, there! So, remember my last post where I (naively, no doubt) made plans to get some weeding done and then do Fluid Friday nails, while Baby ACD enjoyed an activity-filled day at daycare? Yeah… Didn’t happen. This is how Thursday played out: Baby tossed and turned, wailed and screamed all night; consequently, I didn’t… Continue reading Free

Because last night, I managed to work in a full manicure (3 coats of polish, with base and top coat, and stamping) into the two hours between Baby ACD’s bedtime and mine. This too, through a couple of… Continue reading Zombies Can Be Delicate Too!
We’re halfway through with the 31DC2017Weekly! This week’s prompt is delicate print, and not only is the stamping pattern delicate, so is the base polish that shifts subtly from a green-leaning teal to a metallic yellowish-green. If you couldn’t tell from my posts, Tonic Polish is fast clawing its way up to the top of… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 15: Delicate Brocade
I love lace, so much so that I recently purchased a set of 10 lacy stamping plates. So when I saw today’s prompt, delicate print, I had to do a sheer lace manicure! 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
