A Grave Misunderstanding

Hello, folks! It seems I may have misunderstood the instructions to socially distance and extended them to social media as well! Oopsie! Better late than never, right? Jokes aside, how have you all been? I have sorely missed this blog and nail art and downtime in general. I began a new job in March, and… Continue reading A Grave Misunderstanding

Faith, Trust And A Little Bit Of Pixie Dust

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

Of Chiropods

Hiya! It’s Halloween in April here on my blog. I love nothing better than Halloween nail art, so when I saw Creative Shop’s prompt of “things that scare you the most” for this week’s giveaway, I had to partake! In this mani, I feature some (centi?)millipedes. Technically, chiropods are not my biggest fear, but they… Continue reading Of Chiropods

31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

I knew I was going to use this polish for the colour inspiration prompt as soon as I placed my order several months ago — this is An Unexpected Journey by Glam Polish. This is one of those of shades I almost think of as a lack of colour; mind you, that’s not the same… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

NOTW: Dessert Sands

Hello, folks! I chopped off my long nails on a whim late last week, in the spirit of spring & new beginnings. I regretted it almost immediately, but am beginning to appreciate how I can be a little less careful in day-to-day activities now that I have much shorter nails. This manicure is the last… Continue reading NOTW: Dessert Sands

ABC Challenge: R is for Reverse-Stamping

The ABC Challenge is back on after a month-long break! This week’s prompt is the letter R and I’m going for a reverse-stamped skittlette manicure. On my ring and index fingers, I reverse-stamped two images from the Born Pretty aztec plate (BP-L010) using Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Re-Teal Therapy and Black to Black, and… Continue reading ABC Challenge: R is for Reverse-Stamping
