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

Draconem

Hello! It’s been a while since I started a post with anything other than dismal, exhausted thoughts running through my mind. We’ve had a wonderful week: Baby ACD is on the mend, she went to daycare this week and is starting to adjust; I got a ton of work done on my dissertation revisions, as… Continue reading Draconem

Of Chiropods

Hiya! It’s Halloween in April here on my blog. I love nothing better than Halloween nail art, so when I saw Creative Shop’s prompt of “things that scare you the most” for this week’s giveaway, I had to partake! In this mani, I feature some (centi?)millipedes. Technically, chiropods are not my biggest fear, but they… Continue reading Of Chiropods

A Single Man

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possesion of a large fortune, must be in want of wife…” Remember, last week when I posted my Valentine’s manicure, I said I was wearing something on my nails that totally had me guffawing? Unfortunately, I was not able to take pictures in my… Continue reading A Single Man

Uncharacteristic Love

Hello, folks! Amidst the mountains of snow surrounding us, I bring to you very first Valentine’s Day manicure ever! I have mentioned before that I often post texture manis on Thursdays for #texturenailluminati. Last week, D of Nailluminati fame suggested we do Valentine’s-themed manis since the 14th (today) is a Thursday. I decided to go… Continue reading Uncharacteristic Love

Dotty Grits

Hello! It’s been an insane couple of days, and I’ve finally managed to do my nails! It’s Thursday today, so I did a textured mani for #texturenailluminati. The base is two coats of Zoya Juniper, one of their new Pixie Dusts from the Holiday 2018 collection. I was surprised to see it was a one-coater,… Continue reading Dotty Grits

Textured Chevron

Hello, folks! Don’t you just love how original the title of this post is??? Yes, it is reflective of just how brain-dead I am right now! It’s been a tough couple of days, but today takes the cake – which is ironic, since it’s my birthday today (chuckle… am I losing it?). Baby ACD has… Continue reading Textured Chevron

NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

Roses and I have never quite gotten along. I’ve always thought they are a bit overrated. I think I’ve moved away from active dislike and towards indifference over the years, but I don’t usually gravitate towards rose patterns. Then came my Drk Nails Designer 1 plate, with a gorgeous image of wild roses and I… Continue reading NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

31DC2017Weekly 9: Feline Rainbow

I’m alive!!! The past month has been insane, but I survived & I’m back with the 31DC prompt of rainbow nails. Now, rainbow nails are definitely not my buzz, but I tried… I have two versions; one I did by mistake the week of the metallic prompt (on the left below), and then I redid… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 9: Feline Rainbow

31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic

I’ll be glad to be done with posting metallic nails for this challenge. I don’t like wearing metallic polish as a base colour, but I stamp with them all the time. In fact, just a little while ago, I bought a few more foils from Color Club to stamp with. Yet, this is probably the… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic
