Fighter

Hello, folks! I’m back sooner than I’d planned because I’m going to try and avoid a huge backlog of manis again! An Instagram friend and fellow nail art/polish lover, Danielle, has recently been having a difficult time with life in general, so a few of us got together and created manis in her favourite colours… Continue reading Fighter

Lunar New Year

Hello, folks! I’m a day late, but a very happy Chinese (Lunar) New Year to you! This month, the prompt for the #halloweenforevercollab on Instagram was rats, since it is the year of the rat in the lunar calendar. I overthought this mani wildly, and ended up with zero terrifying ideas, so I just went… Continue reading Lunar New Year

The Reason For The Seasons

Hello, folks! If you hate the cold winters and wish it were summer all year long, you can blame the Greek goddess Persephone. The myth goes that once flowers used to bloom and fruit would grow all year round. Wherever the goddess Demeter and her daughter, Persephone, would tread, some form of life would grow.… Continue reading The Reason For The Seasons

Hot Chocolate Vibes

Hello! I’m determined to try and do as many of the #fluidfridayfriends prompts as I can after the long break last year, so even though I was far from thrilled to see this mostly-brown palette this week, I dove headfirst into it anyway. And guess what, I really liked the outcome! I used Tonic Polish… Continue reading Hot Chocolate Vibes

That’s Bugging Me!

Hello! I haven’t been very motivated to post lately or be on social media very much. This lack of sunshine is really getting to me now. I think vacation and home combined, we’ve had about 3 days of sunshine since November! It’s gloomy and sad outside, so that’s how we’re feeling on the inside too.… Continue reading That’s Bugging Me!

Faith, Trust And A Little Bit Of Pixie Dust

Hello, folks! I had not quite intended to post on two consecutive days, but I did a mani for an Instagram friend’s birthday and I only realized her birthday was yesterday after I had posted my last mani. The goal was to recreate one of the birthday girl’s manis, and I chose this lovely delicate… Continue reading Faith, Trust And A Little Bit Of Pixie Dust

A Plaid Kick

Hello, folks! I’ve really been on a plaid kick and did a bunch of plaid manis back to back. I recently found out there’s a matte mani collaboration on Instagram, and given how much I love matte, how could I refrain from joining? The theme for November was recreation of a friend’s mani (in fall… Continue reading A Plaid Kick

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! Sweeney Todd has to be one of my most favourite musicals of all time, right up there with Cats and Sunday In The Park With… Continue reading A Hole In The World

Colour Me Gobbled

Hello, folks! The final prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge for this month is Thanksgiving feathers and I quite like how this one turned out. I combined some of my favourite polish finishes in this mani – textures, a glitter crelly and a soft white polish on my ring finger that I wish I had left plain… Continue reading Colour Me Gobbled
