Gourd-geous Fall!

Hello, all! The theme for the matte Mani collab this month was pumpkin spice lattès. I went with a plain pumpkin mani instead since I don’t have many coffee-themed plates. Little did I realize that I barely have any pumpkin-themed plates either! I don’t have much to say for this mani. It combines a few… Continue reading Gourd-geous Fall!

Vampy Valentine’s Mani

Hello! I’m back today with a fluid mani for #fluidfridayfriends. The suggested palette, though half of it was red and therefore outside my comfort zone, was deliciously dark and vampy. For the fluid art puddles, I used the following polishes: Sally Hansen Rapid Red (bright red), AEngland Anne Boleyn (deep oxblood red holo), Tonic Polish… Continue reading Vampy Valentine’s Mani

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

Frosty

Hello, folks! I feel as if it has been aeons since I posted a mani on the same day I did it. But, miracles do happen, and here I am doing just that! It has been warm out (relatively, only about 0°C at the moment), but I’ve really been feeling this frosty, snowflake-y mani. Sometimes,… Continue reading Frosty

November Rain

Rain? No, we’re literally too cool for that here in Canada, so it’s snow for us. Inches deep, frosty breath, what-was-I-thinking-walking-out-in-my-boots chilling! But, I don’t usually mind; I love the snow and the cold. Except this week, it has led to a number of major inconveniences. I had my road test earlier this week, and… Continue reading November Rain

Lest We Forget

Hello, folks! Four days in a row? That’s a blogging first for me! I’m back today with a mani for Remembrance Day. It is also the prompt du jour for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram. This is the third, and hopefully last, mani that I had a lot of trouble photographing and later realized that my… Continue reading Lest We Forget

Web Of Evil

Hello, folks! Happy Halloween! We went with a spider-theme for our Halloween decorations this year, so I decided to wear a simple mani in that theme for the day. I seem to do this every year – as the weather starts to cool down, I crave texture nails, Zoya Pixie Dusts in particular. I have… Continue reading Web Of Evil

Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Hello, folks! Baby ACD has been having a rough week. Between a cold and stuffy nose, and cutting two new teeth, sleep has not been very restful. Needless to say, I have been grasping at every minute of sleep I can have. At the end of a week or so of this, I am quite… Continue reading Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Pale Turquoise

Hello! You know those days when nothing seems to go right? I had one of those days yesterday. Among other things I struggled with was this rocking manicure inspired by pale turquoise. Apparently, pale-coloured turquoise is considered to be low-grade, but I do love how it looks and was inspired to do a mani based… Continue reading Pale Turquoise
