    31DC2014 Day 07: B&W

    Day 7: Black and White. Didn’t have a lot of time so this was done really quickly – like you can’t tell hehe. Black freehand illustration over a slightly off-white base – since pure snow white is quite stark, not because I was painting in the dark and picked up the wrong colour or anything. The base is OPI My Vampire

    31DC2014 Day 06: (Not-So-Shrinking) Violet

    For Day 6’s theme, VIOLET, I thought I should try an untried. OPI’s Don’t Violet Me Down. It’s a sheer top coat from the OPI Sheer Tints collection. I built it up layer by layer to get a dark colour gradation. And gah! I have almost nearly caught up to date…

    31DC2014 Day 04: Green – Green with Envy

    Day 4 for of the 31 Day Challenge is GREEN. And yes, I am almost caught up! Here I went Green with Envy in a forest green hue. The polish used is Essence 179 Roller Coaster. For such a tiny bottle I actually quite like the Essence brushes – wider brushes are great for easy coverage IMHO, and is something

    31DC2014 Day 02: Orange – L’Orange

    Orange is the theme for the second day of the 31 Day Challenge, so what other theme is more appropriate to choose than, well… ORANGES! Orange polish over mandarin coloured base and mattified with OPI Matte Top Coat.       I feel like devouring a citrusy orange sorbet now…   Please add me to your feed on BlogLovin‘ and

All things being normal it was supposed to be functional ages ago, yet life events got in the way and it wasn’t until late 2013 when that finally happened. Fast

    Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos Nail Art

    Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead nails. It’s that time of the year again when Mexico and other Latin American countries celebrate and honor the deceased. I went for something cute but simple this year given the current lack of energy and time.

    A number of things that you may see throughout the Day of the Dead festival – Calecas (the basic skulls here), sugar skulls, flowers (not quite a marigold), hearts and crucifixes were my theme du jour. The camera didn’t really pick up the detailed pattern layers on the thumb and cactii on the middle finger, but that’s okay.
