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

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

Frosty In May

Hello! The Creative Shop prompt this week is textures in nature, and I decided to to with one of my personal favourites: frost. Before you chide me for even thinking of snow in May, let me remind you that it snowed here not two weeks ago. Living in Canada, snow is always on my mind!… Continue reading Frosty In May
