Gothic Pumpkin

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

Silken Trap

Hello! I haven’t had a chance to do much Halloween nail art this year, but here is a beauty I rather enjoyed wearing for almost a week. Although, given that Mr ACD loves all things arachnid, I’m not sure if this counts as a Halloween mani or a Valentine’s Day one! The base is three… Continue reading Silken Trap

You’ll Float Too…

Hello, folks!!! I think it has been almost two months since I last posted, but who’s counting, right? 2020 is turning out to be quite the year for us, as for so many others. But it’s Halloween season, the beautiful Canadian fall is here, flu shots have arrived and life is good at the moment… Continue reading You’ll Float Too…

Summer Tile

Hello! I’m back today with yet another older mani. This one was done in January, but somehow never got shared. The base is Tonic Polish Lemons and Cream, a vibrant yellow base with coral shimmer. I stamped over it with a Maniology layering plate, M-029, Moyra grey (23) and Born Pretty Coral Grapefruit (WT-07) stamping… Continue reading Summer Tile

Neon Leopard

Hello! Today, I am sharing with you something I have never done before: a leopard print mani! Words I never thought I’d share on my blog, because I don’t do leopard print. No judgement on those who love it, animal prints are just not for me… perhaps barring reptilian prints which I love. Anyway, to… Continue reading Neon Leopard

A Leaf Less Ordinary

Hello! I have to share today one of the many blue manis I did a couple of weeks ago. The base is the deep and dimensional Tonic Polish Miles To Go and while it reminds me strongly of water, I wanted to do something non-aquatic with it. Miles To Go is a beautiful teal jelly… Continue reading A Leaf Less Ordinary

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

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

Snow Adorable!

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!

Cross A Line

Hello, folks! It’s chilly where I am at the moment, and even though a temperature of 14°C (57F) seems practically tropical compared to what we left behind in Ottawa – a balmy -27°C (-16F) – we are not equipped with heaters or insulation here and can really feel the chill! So, here’s a fall plaid… Continue reading Cross A Line
