    Delicate Lace Print on Baby Blue

    Delicate Lace Print stamped on a Baby Blue polish base. Double combo challenge post today, since I haven’t had time to post much thanks to all the pre-Christmas crazy, and I have been trying to get feeling back on track again as my main focus. Simple and easy and done ahead of time. I used a pastel blue from the Sally

    Abstract Tips x Negative Space with Wintery Undertones

    Abstract Tips x Negative Space with Wintery Undertones for today’s mani du jour! Channelling abstract notions, today’s is a conceptual one. I have used some cool toned hues to create the tips and painted the metallic copper lines on freehand. (If you look close you can probably tell where I sneezed whilst doing so LOL, oops!). I added some bronze

    Geometric Lines on Metallic Copper Base

    Guess I should pause with the ‘online window shopping’ and post something, eh? Today’s mani is on a metallic copper base. I just felt like some simple freehand and opted for basic geometric lines in varied triangular shapes. How good is a metallic polish? I would have gone for a thinner line, but my skinny brushes are MIA at the

    Dotted Spring Florals in Mint & Pink

    Dotted Spring Florals in Mint & Pink are today’s mani. Because florals are another thing I haven’t worn in freaking aaages! And I do like them as a nail art. Plus, I wanted to do some stamping. So whilst I haven’t been doing much in the way of challenges this month, mostly due to all the ensuing post-exertion exhaustion I

    White X Negative Space – Apt for Today

    Quick post for today, where I finally got to embrace one of my favourite styles: negative space. Which also means that most of my nail breaks have grown out enough to at least disguise them haha. Shall we? Here is my ‘more healed’ hand, since the other one is still not quite up to par in terms of growing out the

    Dia de los Muertos – Day of the Dead Nails

    Sugar skull nails with red, black and white roses for Dia de los Muertos. Running behind as seems to be the norm for these past few months. Despite the planned shop opening and life in general being thrown in to turmoil, at least I got to do something for Day of the Dead. Not happy with it but at least

    Quick Halloween Nails with Milv

    Quick post since it has been a while and I still don’t have all my gear and equipment back yet. My polishes miss me, and I know this because they sent me a postcard. However it shouldn’t be too long until the prodigal polish returns… I needed to do at least one Halloween manicure – and also to cover up

You apply this powder in the same way shown for the chrome powder review I did, and can see the full review and a short video in the last post which reviews this multichrome powder and see how it looks over other colours.

    Born Pretty Multichrome Powder & Flat Brush Review

    So I didn’t get to finish the 31 Day Challenge after things got too hectic, after macerating 3 nails on my photo hand, and pretty much not having time. I will catch up on seeing what the rest of those who participated did when I get a chance. I am STILL packing and stuff…ready for when. So today is another

    Born Pretty Metallic Dual Use Nail Stencils – Review

    Dang, I see this post did not post as scheduled. As I have been out of action and without devices and internet for a little while due to boxing, packing and a multitude of tech issues, I shouldn’t be surprised haha. But since I have just noticed, now I have been able to log on to someone else’s interwebs, here

    31DC2016 Day 25: Fashion – Tropical Spring

    Today’s prompt is Fashion. Day 25 and I was inspired by a Tropical Spring kind of print on an item I saw in a department store. Cannot for the life of me find the photo I thought I took. As you know, it’s been pretty hectic around this neck of the woods. I did a gradient stamp over white in
