Charismatic Owls

Hello! There’s something about owls. I’ve loved them since I was a very young child, and the very first prize I ever won in my life, incidentally, was a jute owl toy. The sagacity of owls has long been chronicled in every work of fiction I’ve ever come across, and who can ignore the hypnotic… Continue reading Charismatic Owls

Rain, a.k.a Fall-ing Fluid

Hello! I finally did a mani for Fluid Friday after almost a month! And boy, have I missed them! The colour palette for this week’s #fluidfridayfriends was a lovely mix of fall colours: I tried a new method for making my decals/puddles, following the lovely @bwidix on Instagram. I started by laying down a base… Continue reading Rain, a.k.a Fall-ing Fluid

Leaf Summer Behind

Hello, folks! I’m finally on the foliage nails bandwagon, and given how much I love leaves, it comes as a great surprise to me that it took me pretty much all year to hop on!

Fall Is Here

Hello, folks! A very good morning to you! I have finally participated in #fluidfridayfriends after weeks of abstinence.

I decided right… Continue reading Fall Is Here

Magnetic Blobs

Hello! My second month participating in the #magneticmagicnail collaboration on Instagram and the theme was to play with magnets. It was an exercise in learning to use our magnets better and highlight the nail art possibilities simply with the use of magnets rather than other tools. Rest assured, many of us in the collab overthought… Continue reading Magnetic Blobs

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

…Just like the man whose feet are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit… 🎶🎵 When I was a child of about five or six years, my father would sing this song to me. And for some reason unfathomable to him at the time, and later on, to me as well, it would… Continue reading Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

I Want To Believe…

Spaced Out

Hello! I’m in dire need of some quality sleep and am harbouring feelings of dislike and resentment towards my dissertation at the moment. At this point, I no longer care about quality and just want this behind me. Mr ACD had the day off on Friday, in addition to the Victoria Day holiday tomorrow (Monday),… Continue reading Spaced Out
