    31DC2016 Day 06: Violet Crumble

    Day 6 and I haven’t skipped a beat. Though the arhythmias this box packing is giving me perhaps have. Today is late but better late than never right? The prompt is Violet aka Violet Crumble cos the stamp I used looked like some kind of futuristic honeycomb. Sort of. And technically it’s more of a purplish shade than violet if you

    31DC2016 Day 05: Blue Hoo, Don’t Cry

    Day 5 and I’m 5 for 5! All things considered, that’s pretty good so far. Since I’m knee deep in boxes and thought it’d be far less than that. Today is Blue and whilst I got something done, it was short and sweet stamping. I’ve titled this one “Blue Hoo, Don’t Cry” because it was the punniest pun I could

    31DC2016 Day 04: Green Around The Gills

    Day 4 of the 31 Day hallenge already! And we are at Green. So here is a super easy dry brush, brush stroke-y Green Around The Gills. At least I managed to get something done as opposed to skipping a day, so it’s nothing too skilled here, but time poor so it is what it is. Didn’t want to take

    31DC2016 Day 03: Yellow – Fresh ‘n’ Floral

    Day 3 of the 31 Day Challenge is Yellow. And whilst technically Spring where I am currently you wouldn’t know it by looking out the window! I’ve gone fresh ‘n’ floral with some vintage flowers on a nice Spring-y yellow base courtesy of OPI. Actually most of the mani was created with some of my coveted OPI colours of the

    31DC2016 Day 02: Orange – Cubist Stripes

    Welcome to Orange County. A stripey Cubist dream. Day 2 and I have some Cubist stripes up my sleeve for the 31 Day Challenge. I’ll keep the text a little brief this morning as I have so much to do and kind of got a little carried away yesterday. And given how much I have to do, I can’t let

    31 Day Challenge 2016! (Well, Sort Of)

    Time again for this year’s 31 Day Challenge 2016! (Well, Sort Of). Well sort of because I am inundated! More on that in a bit. I have made time to do a few simple nails, but haven’t had time to watermark/crop or edit videos, let alone post anything. So excuse my absence. Hopefully it makes your heart grow fonder…? Things have definitely been

    Summer Sun Salutations – Textured Beach Nails

    Despite the fact that in my hemisphere I am longing for the warm weather, some Sunny Beach nails are sometimes enough to while those cold days away. See below for more deets on this Summer Sun Salutations – Textured Beach Nails thang… I’ve had to go back to shorter-but-not-short nails that are far more manageable from a ‘packing boxes’ perspective.

    Holo Rainbow Nail Art with White Stripes

    Thought these holo rainbows were apt (recent job but I haven’t had data or internet, so was unable to post). They are silver holo with jelly bands and white separators. Ooh la! They also tie in with the @Clairestelle8 Summer theme – a very general challenge theme which works out well since I have nooo time for end to end

    Ane Li RIP – Tribute (Part 2)

    Today’s post is a tribute post in memory of @ane_li – a highly talented young nail artist from Norway who recently lost her battle with depression 💔 I’m not alone in disbelief at the loss of someone so talented and young, nor the sadness that reverberated throughout the nail community with such news. For her final act, she scaled the peak of #PolishMountain to

    Ane Li RIP – Thoughts On Social Behaviour

    Below is a note I posted on the issues surrounding the downsides of social media and how people behave. This is posted mostly verbatim from IG, but thought it was appropriate to post here as well. Because posts on Insta get pushed down with time. Because being nice on the internet is the right things to do, as is having
