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…

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

Fighter

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

“Catty”corner

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

Magnetic Scrolls

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

Cozy Plaid

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

Something Wicked

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
