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 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! 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! In an effort to clear out some of the nail art backlog from my phone, I bring to you today this mani that I did sometime over the summer and never got around to posting. The base colour is a gorgeous light coral colour with an intensely strong pink shimmer, Sunset Cruise by… Continue reading Magnetic Scrolls
Hello, folks! The latest prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram was “prugly colours” – for those of you not familiar with the term, that means pretty ugly. I guess the word can be interpreted in a number of ways. It could mean neither pretty, nor ugly; or pretty ugly; or, in my opinion, something ugly… Continue reading Cozy Plaid
Hello! I’m back sooner than expected, because I did manage to do my “gruesome graveyard” mani for the #clairestelle8challenge after all! I had to resort to using nail tips (aka, fake nails) since I did them over several days and life didn’t get in the way of drying time. I bought a pack of fake… Continue reading Something Wicked
Hello! The title of today’s post was almost suggested by Mr ACD. He took a quick look at the mani and said “cats gone bananas!” because the base was yellow. However, the base is in fact not yellow, it is a yellow-leaning green, hence the reference to being unripe. The theme for the #clairestellechallenge8 today… Continue reading Cats Gone Unripe Bananas!
Hello, there, a very good morning to you! Today’s post is an unplanned, spur-of-the-moment one – which means that you get to see what I’m wearing on my nails right now! Aren’t you starting the day off right??? 🤪 I was wearing Tonic Polish Sweet Pea on my nails yesterday when I decided to dive… Continue reading A Bony Lad
Hello, folks! I’m back with another old manicure, one of my favourites of this season! Glossy or matte? Most definitely matte for me! I realize matte top coat usually dulls the shimmer, but I just love the finish regardless. The base is two coats of Emily de Molly One And The Same, a gorgeous orange… Continue reading Orange You Fern-y?
