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
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
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’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
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!
Hello, folks! I’m back for the last time this year with a mani I love. As with so many of my recent posts, it’s an old one from the camera roll, done in the late summer, but it’s a special one to me. I am in love with the base polish and the image I… Continue reading Lagoon
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!
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
Hello, folks! Even though I had every intention of posting more frequently, it’s hard to find time on vacation! Have you ever shared a residence with other individuals whose parenting styles are vastly different from yours? Then you might have an inkling of how much subtlety and diplomacy is called for in dealing with situations… Continue reading “Catty”corner
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? The theme for November was recreation of a friend’s mani (in fall… Continue reading A Plaid Kick
