Summer Tile

Hello! I’m back today with yet another older mani. This one was done in January, but somehow never got shared. The base is Tonic Polish Lemons and Cream, a vibrant yellow base with coral shimmer. I stamped over it with a Maniology layering plate, M-029, Moyra grey (23) and Born Pretty Coral Grapefruit (WT-07) stamping… Continue reading Summer Tile

A Leaf Less Ordinary

Hello! I have to share today one of the many blue manis I did a couple of weeks ago. The base is the deep and dimensional Tonic Polish Miles To Go and while it reminds me strongly of water, I wanted to do something non-aquatic with it.

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

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

Summer Wine

Hello, folks! Another Friday, another fluid mani. The palette for this week’s #fluidfridayfriends was so gorgeous, based on this inspiration picture: For this mani, I used Sally Hansen Cherry Fast (fuschia) and Style Is Eternal (blue), Sinful Colors Innocent (green) and a mauve-pink frankenpolish that I mixed up years ago, along with my DIY transforming… Continue reading Summer Wine
