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
Hello! It’s been ages since my last post, or so it feels like! We’ve been a sick, sick household – first Baby came down with a cold and then conjunctivitis/pink eye, which she promptly and generously shared with me. I then caught a cold, and I daresay the flu (but who has time for doctors),… Continue reading Laws Of Attraction
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
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!
Hello, folks! In an effort to clear out some of the nail art backlog from my phone, I bring to you today this mani that I did sometime over the summer and never got around to posting.

Hello, folks! I have a simple mani and a short post for you today. This is a mani I did a couple of weeks ago, when the weather still hadn’t reached sub-zero levels and I was in the mood to play. I tried double-process stamping, a technique I have done once or twice and would… Continue reading Harvest
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
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
Hello, folks! We’re halfway across the world right now, visiting family, and we’re all so jetlagged! Baby ACD was an absolute champ during our long flight here. The last leg of the journey was a bit frustrating, as she kept waking up and crying and I was already exhausted beyond measure, but all in all,… Continue reading Papoy!
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
