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!
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
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
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!

The palette for this week’s #fluidfridayfriends was so gorgeous, based on this inspiration picture: For this mani, I used Sally Hansen Cherry Fast (fuschia) and Style Is Eternal (blue), Sinful Colors Innocent (green) and a mauve-pink frankenpolish that I mixed up years ago, along with my DIY transforming… Continue reading Summer Wine
Hello, folks, a happy Saturday to you! I posted yesterday and here I am again so soon because time is running out on entering the Creative Shop giveaway this week and I have a mani I love for this week’s prompt of trees. This mani is a tribute to, well not a tree exactly, but… Continue reading Don’t Be Hasty
Hello! It’s been a while since I started a post with anything other than dismal, exhausted thoughts running through my mind. We’ve had a wonderful week: Baby ACD is on the mend, she went to daycare this week and is starting to adjust; I got a ton of work done on my dissertation revisions, as… Continue reading Draconem
Hello, and welcome back to my Halloween nail art series. Today, I have a manicure that isn’t obviously Halloweeny but showcases my biggest fear – entrapment. Which means the next episode features Mr ACD’s. I would do Baby ACD’s too, but 1. I don’t feel I know her preferences quite as well yet 😉, and,… Continue reading Break Free
The prompt for this week is “inspired by fashion” and the first thought that jumped into my mind was to do a manicure based on one of the many gorgeous outfits Eva Green’s character in Penny Dreadful wears. Despite its shortcomings, I rather like the show, and I spend a sizeable portion of my time… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 25: Inspired by fashion
