Another Pillar Of Success

Hello, folks! If failure is the pillar of success, then I’m another step closer to epic success with this mani I have to share today. I did this for the prompt of paisley for the #clairestelle8challenge and while there is nothing wrong with it per se, but I kinda hate it! The base is a… Continue reading Another Pillar Of Success

Slasher

Hello, folks! It’s Halloween tomorrow and I have not one, but two manis to post tonight. I’ve made no secret of just how much I love Halloween, and we’ve gone the extra mile and actually decorated this year. Baby ACD is going trick or treating for the first time in her short life, dressed as… Continue reading Slasher

Double, Double, Toil And Trouble

Hello! Witches for the #clairestelle8challenge today, and this mani took more time to do than I had anticipated. The base is three thin coats of the beautiful Tonic Polish Dragon Tears from the Holiday 2016 collection (and currently selling in store, so if you want to pause and run over, GO!). It is a super-shifty… Continue reading Double, Double, Toil And Trouble

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

Uncharacteristic Love

Hello, folks! Amidst the mountains of snow surrounding us, I bring to you very first Valentine’s Day manicure ever! I have mentioned before that I often post texture manis on Thursdays for #texturenailluminati. Last week, D of Nailluminati fame suggested we do Valentine’s-themed manis since the 14th (today) is a Thursday. I decided to go… Continue reading Uncharacteristic Love

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!

Paisley Blues

Good morning, folks! I have another manicure today. I had an hour to play last night and decided to do this on my left hand only, with every intention of taking it off soon afterwards (I often derive more pleasure from the act of doing nail art rather than wearing it). However, I’m totally in… Continue reading Paisley Blues

Zombies Can Be Delicate Too!

I think might be getting the hang of this motherhood thing! How do I know, you ask? Because last night, I managed to work in a full manicure (3 coats of polish, with base and top coat, and stamping) into the two hours between Baby ACD’s bedtime and mine. This too, through a couple of… Continue reading Zombies Can Be Delicate Too!

Tonic Polish Rainbowfish

Hello! Another beauty from Tonic Polish for you today. This one came out in the debut collection in 2016 and I successfully talked myself out of snagging this one until about a month ago. All it took was one look at the bottle in real life to fall wildly in love; I can’t believe it… Continue reading Tonic Polish Rainbowfish

31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails

I really love galaxy nails, yet I never seem to think of doing them unless prompted by the dear 31DCWeekly each year! I decided to go super-sparkly today and used almost all holo polishes for a blingy mani 😀 The base polish is A-England Natasha’s Dance. I sponged on the galaxy using A-England Queen Of… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails
