I Want To Believe…

Hello, folks! I’m back with yet another mani. This is for the #halloweenforevercollab on Instagram. This is a monthly collaboration of Halloween nail art lovers and the theme this month was aliens. This is my first time participating in this collab, and I can safely say it won’t be the last! The base is three… Continue reading I Want To Believe…

31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White

Hello! As they say, when it rains, it pours; and so it is with my blogging this week. I not only posted thrice this week, but the two I did today were rather wordy. Mr. ACD is away for the weekend, and I haven’t really spoken much for two days now; my brain is not… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White

31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

It’s Week 6 of the 31DC2017Weekly, and I will admit I’m a little glad that I can now stop doing white middle & ring fingers! No one asked me to, true, but I noticed that was what I had done for three consecutive weeks and decided to continue until the end of the colour prompts.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

31DC2017Weekly 5: Blue Diapers??!?!

Continuing with the accidental trend of white middle & ring fingers for the colour prompts of the 31DC, I made a quick & easy stamping mani this morning. I enthusiastically sent my sister a picture right away, as I often do, and she said they reminded her of diapers! Oh well, as long as it’s… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 5: Blue Diapers??!?!

ABC Challenge: W is for White on White

I realize this looks a tad bit bridal, but 1) where I come from, red/hot pink/magenta is considered bridal, and, 2) I love white on white, so I don’t care either way! 😀 [Please excuse how dry & wrinkly my fingers look in all of today’s shots! Winter is here and, apparently, I didn’t get… Continue reading ABC Challenge: W is for White on White

31DC2016Weekly 14: Flowers

The prompt for today is flowers. I did a double stamping manicure:     I started off with a base of white nail polish (Essie in Limo-scene), over which I stamped the scroll-like pattern using two shades of green (Sinful Colors in Innocent and Sally Hansen CSM in On Pines and Needles). Over that, I… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 14: Flowers

31DC2016Weekly 7: Black & White

A whole week of doing nails each day; whew! I normally do my nails once a week, with 3-4 days of off-time, and the thought of using nail polish remover each day is upsetting me! I know plenty of people do their nails every day or several times a week; I guess it’s just a… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 7: Black & White

31DC2016Weekly 2: Orange

The prompt for day #2 of the 31 day nail art challenge is “orange”, so I went with a marbled sandwich bag manicure. This time, I skipped the white base colour and directly applied the blobs of orange, yellow and white nail polish over my bare nails. I thought there was sufficient coverage even without… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 2: Orange
