    31DC2017 Day 18: Half Moons (Literally)

    I did literal half moons for the Half Moon #31DC2017 prompt. So I should’ve posted these the other day, but still lagging a little behind with the posting. Aaargh!?!! 😂   The base is So Soiree from @opallacgelpolish – it’s a delightful berry hue. Gel polish too by the way – a quick cure suits me fine given the lack of time or energy

    31DC2017 Day 17: Glitter – Autumn Leaves

    Back with more of the continuing challenging challenges – #31DC2017 Day 17 GLITTER prompt 😂 I’ve thrown it in with @clairestelle8challenge‘s Autumn one for more double-barrelled challenge goodness. Challenging because I’m preoccupied with a few things right now. So multi-tasking FTW!   The base is dark grey No 423/267 from @el_corazon_shop 🌿The leaves (@moyou_london mother nature 07? plate), in all their holo stamping glory, are Drop

    31DC2017 Day 17: Geometric Print – Geo Shapes are my flavour of the day using one of my fave blue hues in the form of – El Capitan by Floss Gloss. Cute arse bottles too, eh? 😉 I hand-painted a few geometric shapes and lines in white. Didn’t go too hell for leather being after midnight and all, and having

    ¡Hola! Still alive (just). Back with the #31DC2017 14th prompt of Flowers, so I went for a bold print floral 🌸🌸 Which doubles as a review for this really handy paint palette from Born Pretty Store. The base is the gorgeous Bunny Foo-Foo 🐰 from the coveted @pscosmetics Pastel Pets collection, used in conjunction with @winstonia_store Fine Lines brushes. This paint palette from Born Pretty Store

    31DC2017 Day 10: Swiped Gradient

    Day 10 of 31DC2017 is Gradient: I did a Swiped Gradient for kicks. I also felt a touch experimental and used the @linanailartsupplies Make Your Mark 03 gradient stamp since I wanted to create a slightly messy, abstract gradient. I’m running a bit behind with challenge month, as September has proved more “challenging” in itself in general. Making this Challenge Month³ x

    31DC2017 Day 08: Metallic Plaid, Triple Challenge

    Day 8 of the 31 Day Challenge is Metallic. I’ve paired a gorgeous mushroom metallic with white plaid print for both the Clairestelle8 Challenge bonus, and the WNAC2017 actual day of Sweater. As the warm weather hints at returning, the flowers start to blossom once more, so I thought it fitting that this was shot with some tiny florals. Cute,

    Blue for Liam – Mani Swap Circle Special Edition

    Blue and white for Liam – Mani Swap Circle Special Edition, August 2017. Posted a couple of days into September for the anniversary of Liam’s tragic death at the hands of a drunk driver. Nice, but obviously sad to be part of such an occasion. Drink driving deaths are completely avoidable, and I’ve had a number of friends lost to
