Gothic Pumpkin

The theme for the #halloweenforever collab last month was glow-in-the-dark pumpkins. During the making of this mani, I came to realize just how few of my plates contain pumpkin images, especially Halloweeny ones! I decided to go with a Victorian/gothic vibe. On my pinky finger, I am wearing two coats of L’Oreal Hidden Gems, a… Continue reading Gothic Pumpkin

Gourd-geous Fall!

Hello, all! The theme for the matte Mani collab this month was pumpkin spice lattès. I went with a plain pumpkin mani instead since I don’t have many coffee-themed plates. Little did I realize that I barely have any pumpkin-themed plates either! I don’t have much to say for this mani. It combines a few… Continue reading Gourd-geous Fall!

Silken Trap

Hello! I haven’t had a chance to do much Halloween nail art this year, but here is a beauty I rather enjoyed wearing for almost a week. Although, given that Mr ACD loves all things arachnid, I’m not sure if this counts as a Halloween mani or a Valentine’s Day one! The base is three… Continue reading Silken Trap

You’ll Float Too…

Hello, folks!!! I think it has been almost two months since I last posted, but who’s counting, right? 2020 is turning out to be quite the year for us, as for so many others. But it’s Halloween season, the beautiful Canadian fall is here, flu shots have arrived and life is good at the moment… Continue reading You’ll Float Too…

Summer Tile

Hello! I’m back today with yet another older mani. This one was done in January, but somehow never got shared. The base is Tonic Polish Lemons and Cream, a vibrant yellow base with coral shimmer. I stamped over it with a Maniology layering plate, M-029, Moyra grey (23) and Born Pretty Coral Grapefruit (WT-07) stamping… Continue reading Summer Tile

Neon Leopard

Hello! Today, I am sharing with you something I have never done before: a leopard print mani! Words I never thought I’d share on my blog, because I don’t do leopard print. No judgement on those who love it, animal prints are just not for me… perhaps barring reptilian prints which I love. Anyway, to… Continue reading Neon Leopard

A Leaf Less Ordinary

Hello! I have to share today one of the many blue manis I did a couple of weeks ago. The base is the deep and dimensional Tonic Polish Miles To Go and while it reminds me strongly of water, I wanted to do something non-aquatic with it. Miles To Go is a beautiful teal jelly… Continue reading A Leaf Less Ordinary

Salty Kisses & Seashell Wishes

If there’s one type of manicure I adore, it’s a reverse-stamped negative space one. Having shorter nails makes it very time-efficient to colour in any of those large images from my Moyra plates, and I was actually able to do this during a phone meeting! Yay for multitasking (and audio-only!). The image I stamped (and… Continue reading Salty Kisses & Seashell Wishes

Ferrite Leaves

How many ways can you spin the word “magnetic”? I’m clearly on a mission to find out, as I like to name all my magnetic manis as such! Today, I have a reverse-stamped foliage mani using a beautiful but subtle rust-coloured magnetic polish. The base is two coats of the stunning Sophia from Tonic Polish,… Continue reading Ferrite Leaves
