“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

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

A Bony Lad

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

Free

Hello, there! So, remember my last post where I (naively, no doubt) made plans to get some weeding done and then do Fluid Friday nails, while Baby ACD enjoyed an activity-filled day at daycare? Yeah… Didn’t happen. This is how Thursday played out: Baby tossed and turned, wailed and screamed all night; consequently, I didn’t… Continue reading Free

Draped

Hi, there! Because the procrastination monkey rules my life, I haven’t taken pictures of my last craft project yet, and so here I am, back with another manicure! Once again, this is a couple of weeks old – two to be specific, or at least as far as I can recall. That doesn’t make it… Continue reading Draped

Embroidered Silk Dress

Hello, folks! I’m in the middle of a very social day today. Baby ACD had a playdate in the morning, another one is coming up soon and then I’ll have a friend visit (baby – no one visits to see the mister & myself anymore!). Baby is worn out already and passed out in the… Continue reading Embroidered Silk Dress

Paisley Blues

Good morning, folks! I have another manicure today. I had an hour to play last night and decided to do this on my left hand only, with every intention of taking it off soon afterwards (I often derive more pleasure from the act of doing nail art rather than wearing it). However, I’m totally in… Continue reading Paisley Blues

Palate Cleanser

Hello, folks! After all the dark/bright colours I’ve been wearing lately, I needed a bit of a palate cleanser. I decided to go with Cirque Colours Fata Morgana, a pale lavender polish with strong copper shimmer and very subtle holographic sparkle. I’ve worn this polish before but did not have an opportunity to photograph or… Continue reading Palate Cleanser
