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

Laws Of Attraction

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

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

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?

Papoy!

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!

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

Woodland Creatures

Hello, folks! I am so sleepy at the moment, I don’t have much to say at all, but I really wanted to try and post this before hitting the sack. So, let’s dive right into it! I have a couple of very autumnal manis lined up. The first is for the prompt of the #clairetelle8challenge… Continue reading Woodland Creatures

A No-Brainer

Hello! The theme for this month’s #halloweenforever collab on Instagram was zombies and smoosh manicures. I’m reminded time and again how in my element I am in this group, and am left lamenting the fact that I only joined recently! I did this mani almost immediately upon finding out the theme because it was a… Continue reading A No-Brainer

Guardians, Subdued

Hello, folks, a happy Sunday to you! I just realized I never posted my stamping add-on to my swatch of Tonic Polish Guardians Of The Tower, so here goes! I used a metallic pink Sally Hansen polish called Pink Satin, and Moyra Florality stamping plate. I wanted an image that wouldn’t cover up too much… Continue reading Guardians, Subdued
