Hot Chocolate Vibes

Hello! I’m determined to try and do as many of the #fluidfridayfriends prompts as I can after the long break last year, so even though I was far from thrilled to see this mostly-brown palette this week, I dove headfirst into it anyway. And guess what, I really liked the outcome! I used Tonic Polish… Continue reading Hot Chocolate Vibes

That’s Bugging Me!

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!

Snow Adorable!

Hello, folks! Happy (merry?) Christmas Eve! I have a cute little mani to show today, one I did for the magnetic nail collab on Instagram. The theme was snow persons, and I went with this adorable little guy. On my ring finger, I am wearing two coats – with the second one magnetized – of… Continue reading Snow Adorable!

Cross A Line

Hello, folks! It’s chilly where I am at the moment, and even though a temperature of 14°C (57F) seems practically tropical compared to what we left behind in Ottawa – a balmy -27°C (-16F) – we are not equipped with heaters or insulation here and can really feel the chill! So, here’s a fall plaid… Continue reading Cross A Line

A Hole In The World

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

Colour Me Gobbled

Hello, folks! The final prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge for this month is Thanksgiving feathers and I quite like how this one turned out. I combined some of my favourite polish finishes in this mani – textures, a glitter crelly and a soft white polish on my ring finger that I wish I had left plain… Continue reading Colour Me Gobbled

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
