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

Illusion

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

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!

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

A No-Brainer

Hello! The theme for this month’s #halloweenforever collab on Instagram was zombies and smoosh manicures. I’m reminded time and again how in my element I am in this group, and am left lamenting the fact that I only joined recently! I did this mani almost immediately upon finding out the theme because it was a… Continue reading A No-Brainer

Life In Colour

Hello, folks! Today’s manicure is a tribute to my younger self (Narcissistic? Nah!). During my teenage years and for a long, long time afterwards, I was an avid player of The Sims. From the barebones and laughably simplistic first iteration to the rather lifelike platform today, I’ve played them all, sometimes for weeks on end,… Continue reading Life In Colour

I Want To Believe…

Hello, folks! I’m back with yet another mani. This is for the #halloweenforevercollab on Instagram. This is a monthly collaboration of Halloween nail art lovers and the theme this month was aliens. This is my first time participating in this collab, and I can safely say it won’t be the last! The base is three… Continue reading I Want To Believe…
