Guardians, Subdued

Hello, folks, a happy Sunday to you! I just realized I never posted my stamping add-on to my swatch of Tonic Polish Guardians Of The Tower, so here goes! I used a metallic pink Sally Hansen polish called Pink Satin, and Moyra Florality stamping plate. I wanted an image that wouldn’t cover up too much… Continue reading Guardians, Subdued

(Neon?) Watercolour

Hello! Happy Monday to you all! We had a lovely weekend. On Saturday, we had some friends over for lunch and we munched on some delicious cheese, veggies and some freshly-baked bread. On Sunday, we had a relaxed family day, complete with some delectable icecream, and I finally organized my closet and got some cleaning… Continue reading (Neon?) Watercolour

Nectar, a.k.a. Floral Fluid

Hello! It’s Friday again, and as of last week, I have decided to try and participate in as many #fluidartfridays as I can manage in order to get some practice. It’s a technique I’ve been wanting to dabble in for a while and am really enjoying it so far. However, I’m on a steep learning… Continue reading Nectar, a.k.a. Floral Fluid

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello, folks! I have a manicure today that I did for a giveaway by Creative Shop. I love this brand, so how could I not participate? There is a new prompt each week and the theme for this week is “first greens”. I found this image of what look to be snowdrops, but I chose… Continue reading April Showers Bring May Flowers

Somewhere It’s Spring!

Good afternoon, folks! We’re buried under about a foot and a half of snow here! It’s been snowing for days, and pretty much all day yesterday we had snowfall alongside strong gusts which means a lot of snow blowing around. Mr ACD spent a good thirty minutes in -25°C chills to clear the walkway (while… Continue reading Somewhere It’s Spring!

Embroidered Silk Dress

Hello, folks! I’m in the middle of a very social day today. Baby ACD had a playdate in the morning, another one is coming up soon and then I’ll have a friend visit (baby – no one visits to see the mister & myself anymore!). Baby is worn out already and passed out in the… Continue reading Embroidered Silk Dress

NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

Roses and I have never quite gotten along. I’ve always thought they are a bit overrated. I think I’ve moved away from active dislike and towards indifference over the years, but I don’t usually gravitate towards rose patterns. Then came my Drk Nails Designer 1 plate, with a gorgeous image of wild roses and I… Continue reading NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

31DC2017Weekly 18: V-Moons Inspired By Bath & Body Works

The prompt for the 31DC this week is half-moons, and I decided to go with v-moons — triangular-shaped half-moons. I picked up a tube of body cream from Bath & Body Works last weekend, and this nail art was inspired by the design on the tube. The base is three coats of ILNP Clever Girl,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 18: V-Moons Inspired By Bath & Body Works

31DC2017Weekly 14: Once & Floral

Hello! See what I did with the title? Lame, I know 😀 . I came across it on some webpage recently and just had to use it! I’m actually kind of cheating with this prompt because this is a mani I did back in March for a nail art contest hosted by Moyra (that I… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 14: Once & Floral

31DC2016Weekly 14: Flowers

The prompt for today is flowers. I did a double stamping manicure:     I started off with a base of white nail polish (Essie in Limo-scene), over which I stamped the scroll-like pattern using two shades of green (Sinful Colors in Innocent and Sally Hansen CSM in On Pines and Needles). Over that, I… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 14: Flowers
