Draped

Hi, there! Because the procrastination monkey rules my life, I haven’t taken pictures of my last craft project yet, and so here I am, back with another manicure! Once again, this is a couple of weeks old – two to be specific, or at least as far as I can recall. That doesn’t make it… Continue reading Draped

Lavender Scrolls

Hello, folks! I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Baby ACD is still fighting a cold and fever, so I didn’t have time to do my nails at all this week. Here’s a mani I wore several weeks, maybe even months, ago and never got around to posting. And there’s more where this came… Continue reading Lavender Scrolls

A Single Man

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possesion of a large fortune, must be in want of wife…” Remember, last week when I posted my Valentine’s manicure, I said I was wearing something on my nails that totally had me guffawing? Unfortunately, I was not able to take pictures in my… Continue reading A Single Man

Palate Cleanser

Hello, folks! After all the dark/bright colours I’ve been wearing lately, I needed a bit of a palate cleanser. I decided to go with Cirque Colours Fata Morgana, a pale lavender polish with strong copper shimmer and very subtle holographic sparkle. I’ve worn this polish before but did not have an opportunity to photograph or… Continue reading Palate Cleanser

Cozy Sweater Vibes

Hello, folks! A cozy sweater is one of my top favourite things in the world, so when I had an opportunity to do my nails this week, I went with a sweater print. The base is two coats of Tonic Polish Come Wander. I seem to have a bit of a love-hate relationship with this… Continue reading Cozy Sweater Vibes

In Glowing Terms

I’ve been busy with guests these past few weeks. It’s getting quite chilly here – in fact, we even had a day of snow a couple of weeks ago. It was Baby ACD’s first experience of being out in the snow. My cousin was visiting that weekend with her family, and it her was children’s… Continue reading In Glowing Terms

31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

I knew I was going to use this polish for the colour inspiration prompt as soon as I placed my order several months ago — this is An Unexpected Journey by Glam Polish. This is one of those of shades I almost think of as a lack of colour; mind you, that’s not the same… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

NOTW: Orchid-Inspired

Mr ACD really likes orchids and has attempted several times to keep some around the house. Green-thumbed as we both are in general, we simply cannot manage to keep one alive beyond a couple of weeks. We have now given up, but hope to learn to care for them some day. As for myself, I… Continue reading NOTW: Orchid-Inspired

31DC2017Weekly 14: Once & Floral

Hello! See what I did with the title? Lame, I know 😀 . I came across it on some webpage recently and just had to use it! I’m actually kind of cheating with this prompt because this is a mani I did back in March for a nail art contest hosted by Moyra (that I… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 14: Once & Floral

31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient

My mother says I must have been born upside down. As soon as I’m told not to do something, that’s the only thing in the world that appeals to me. So, today, on this day of mothers, I present the one thing I wasn’t ever going to do voluntarily: a rainbow gradient! Happy Mothers’ Day,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient
