Summer Tile

Hello! I’m back today with yet another older mani. This one was done in January, but somehow never got shared. The base is Tonic Polish Lemons and Cream, a vibrant yellow base with coral shimmer. I stamped over it with a Maniology layering plate, M-029, Moyra grey (23) and Born Pretty Coral Grapefruit (WT-07) stamping… Continue reading Summer Tile

Hello, folks! We’re halfway across the world right now, visiting family, and we’re all so jetlagged! Baby ACD was an absolute champ during our long flight here. The last leg of the journey was a bit frustrating, as she kept waking up and crying and I was already exhausted beyond measure, but all in all,… Continue reading Papoy!

Woodland Creatures

Hello, folks! I am so sleepy at the moment, I don’t have much to say at all, but I really wanted to try and post this before hitting the sack. So, let’s dive right into it!

Somewhere It’s Spring!

Good afternoon, folks! We’re buried under about a foot and a half of snow here! It’s been snowing for days, and pretty much all day yesterday we had snowfall alongside strong gusts which means a lot of snow blowing around. Mr ACD spent a good thirty minutes in -25°C chills to clear the walkway (while… Continue reading Somewhere It’s Spring!

31DC2017Weekly 3: Bananas For Nail Art!

Hello, and welcome back to yet another week of the 31DC2017Weekly! The prompt for this week is yellow, so I did a fun banana-themed mani with two accent nails: On my thumb, index and pinky fingers, I’m wearing two coats of OPI Good Grief, topped with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Top Coat in Pixel Perfect.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 3: Bananas For Nail Art!

31DC2016Weekly 3: Yellow

The prompt for day #3 of the 31 day nail art challenge is “yellow”. I’ve been meaning to try two new techniques for weeks now – dry brushing and fishtail braids (and no, I’m not talking about hair!). Earlier this week, I saw Flight of Whimsy’s beautiful braid manicure and got inspired! So today, I… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 3: Yellow

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
