Cross A Line

Hello, folks! It’s chilly where I am at the moment, and even though a temperature of 14°C (57F) seems practically tropical compared to what we left behind in Ottawa – a balmy -27°C (-16F) – we are not equipped with heaters or insulation here and can really feel the chill! So, here’s a fall plaid… Continue reading Cross A Line

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

Rutaceae

Hello! Do you go through phases when you don’t quite feel like talking? When you’re feeling content and happy, but just quiet? It’s been that way for me with the blog. I have so many nail art posts pending, and even more being added each week as I’ve continued to do my nails, but I… Continue reading Rutaceae

Galaxy or Deep Blue Sea?

Hello! Today’s mani is a big favourite and because I have so much to share about the manicure itself, I will not partake in my usual ramblings. Brace yourselves, this post is very picture-heavy! I don’t know about you, but this is easily one of my favourite manis ever! It is some kind of a… Continue reading Galaxy or Deep Blue Sea?

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

Springing Into Fall

Hello, folks! I have a lot of pent-up nail art energy right now and have been planning a bunch of Halloween manis that I will begin to do tonight (provided Baby ACD is on board with that plan!). So, I thought I’d share a couple of manis that I did in spring and get those… Continue reading Springing Into Fall

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

NOTW: Orchid-Inspired

Mr ACD really likes orchids and has attempted several times to keep some around the house. Green-thumbed as we both are in general, we simply cannot manage to keep one alive beyond a couple of weeks. We have now given up, but hope to learn to care for them some day. As for myself, I… Continue reading NOTW: Orchid-Inspired

Simple Canada Day Mani

Hello, again! Here’s a simple stamped mani idea for Canada Day: The base polish is three coats of KBShimmer Yeti or Not, a very pale grey (almost white) holographic polish with a slightly textured finish. I stamped over that with Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Rapid Red and an image of maple leaves from Aliexpress… Continue reading Simple Canada Day Mani

Hiya, folks! It’s yet another week of the 31dcweekly and it’s the big Canada Day celebration this weekend. I’m super excited, and am looking forward to a day out (amidst potential thunderstorms, yay!??!!) and most of all, the fireworks! So, this week, I’ve combined the 31dc prompt with one of six more Canada Day nail… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 17: Glittering French Mani & Canada Day
