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

A Hole In The World

There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit that’s filled with people who are filled with shit, and the vermin of the world inhabit it. Hello, folks! Sweeney Todd has to be one of my most favourite musicals of all time, right up there with Cats and Sunday In The Park With… Continue reading A Hole In The World

Web Of Evil

Hello, folks! Happy Halloween! We went with a spider-theme for our Halloween decorations this year, so I decided to wear a simple mani in that theme for the day. I seem to do this every year – as the weather starts to cool down, I crave texture nails, Zoya Pixie Dusts in particular. I have… Continue reading Web Of Evil

Pumpkin King

Hello! I’m back with the second post of the night. This was my contribution to the #halloweenforevercollab this month for the prompt of Halloween. And no Halloween would be complete without a Nightmare Before Christmas mani, would it? This was one of the most hurriedly put together manis in recent times. I did this in… Continue reading Pumpkin King

Something Wicked

Hello! I’m back sooner than expected, because I did manage to do my “gruesome graveyard” mani for the #clairestelle8challenge after all! I had to resort to using nail tips (aka, fake nails) since I did them over several days and life didn’t get in the way of drying time. I bought a pack of fake… Continue reading Something Wicked

Good Gourd!

Hello! I’m back with another mani for the #clairestelle8challenge and today’s theme is petrifying pumpkins. I’ve have a rough day with Baby ACD and am both stressed and exhausted, so let’s dive right into it without more yapping on this end. On my middle to pinky fingers, I’m wearing two coats of the gorgeous Tonic… Continue reading Good Gourd!

Cats Gone Unripe Bananas!

Hello! The title of today’s post was almost suggested by Mr ACD. He took a quick look at the mani and said “cats gone bananas!” because the base was yellow. However, the base is in fact not yellow, it is a yellow-leaning green, hence the reference to being unripe. The theme for the #clairestellechallenge8 today… Continue reading Cats Gone Unripe Bananas!

Bloodthirsty

Hello! We’re on a roadtrip at the moment and while Baby ACD is having a much, much better time of it than the last time we did this in July, I’m still feeling exhausted trying to keep her entertained. I’m taking a short break while she colours for a few minutes. The prompt for the… Continue reading Bloodthirsty
