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

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

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
