    31DC2015 Day 10: Gradient – Hey, (H)Ombre!

    I love a good gradient and today was one I was looking forward to. (Watermarbling probably less so, but I’m sure I’m not alone haha. I do like it, however a cold room does not exactly help). Anyway back to Day 10: Gradient. Or keeping up with the terrible 31 Day Challenge puns – Hey, (H)Ombre! I know, terrible. Stop throwing your tomatoes

    31DC2015 Day 09: Rainbow – ColourFull

    With Rainbow as the prompt for today, I thought it would be high time to do something fun as well as colourful. Full of colour with a bit of Sparkle. Thus this Mani Moniker: ColourFull. So I’ll post first and answer questions later. We’ve almost hit the end of the first leg of the challenge Colours, before we move into the second

    31DC2015 Day 08: Metallic – Foiled My Plans

    31 Day Challenge is powering ahead and we have hit Day 8. The theme is Metallic. Or again, to keep up with my naming theme – Day 08: Metallic – Foiled My Plans. I’m kinda happy with how it turned out in terms of interpreting the brief and level of shininess. I wanted to do more, but decided to leave it. I

    31DC2015 Day 07: B&W – No Shades of Grey

    Wow already a week down and now that the weekend is over and I am a day closer to “slightly less hectic” as opposed to “hectic hectic” with juggling appointments and whatnot, maybe I’ll get a moment to scratch my head. In the meantime we are hitting Day 7 of the 31 Day Challenge 2015 (aka as #31DC2015 for you

    31DC2015 Day 06: Violet – Collide-oscopes

    Already hitting Day 06 of the 31 Day Challenge. The colour is vivacious Violet – so I did some purple layering. All forms of purple and violet in a mashup that incorporates kaleidoscopic shapes – therefore why I like to call this one Collide-oscopes. I know right? I should’ve worked full time in branding. If you haven’t yet noticed, I

    31DC2015 Day 05: Blue – Sea What I Did There?

    Day 5 already of the 31 Day Challenge (aka #31DC2015 if you’re playing along on Insta or Twitter). We’re about half way through the colour section of the challenge. For those of you participating, how are you all going? Hanging in there still given it is the weekend? Today’s prompt is Blue. A lovely colour indeed IMHO, so this one was enjoyable.

    31DC2015 Day 04: Green – Kiwi Fruit

    Speaking of voting against pineapples yesterday, I had already decided on Kiwi Fruits for today’s GREEN theme. And with no plans to make this challenge all about fruit salad, opted for kiwis over pineapples. So this is what we have here. Day 04: A Lean, Green, Kiwi Machine.     Green is one of those colours that I really love

    31DC2015 Day 03: Yellow – Organic

    Day 3 and we move up the rainbow to Yellow. A colour that draws less ire and hatred than Orange does; and for many signifies a mid-life crisis (as the Yellow Ferrari adage goes…). It’s fresh and Summery. I like yellow. But then again, I just like colour. So here it is today combined in a simply illustrated yellow and

    31DC2015 Day 02: Orange – Orange You Glad I’m Punny?

    So you might be saying, “Wow Ms Lacquerista! What is this magic nail growing serum you doth have?” or “Hey, did you Jack & The Beanstalk your digits or something overnight??”… I wish, but alas no. I had one of those Hand-meet-Door moments and lost a couple of tips :-O Devastating yes, since it is only Day 02 of the

    31DC2015 Day 01: Red – Love / Hate

    Red is the colour associated with Love. So this inspired my first entry for this year’s 31 Day Challenge. I guess with Love, the other extreme is Hate so I drew some inspiration from vintage tattoo art and settled on a Love / Hate hand set.   I painted with OPI’s Red Hot Rio as the base, stamping some lips

    Behold the 31 Day Challenge for 2015!

    After a year riddled with bumps and speed-humps,  I really wasn’t sure if I would get a chance to participate in this year’s 31 Day Challenge, but I am going to at least make an attempt.  So here’s cheers to that time of the year. Finger’s crossed I finish, as many of you who have done it before will know

    Buff & Polish is now on YouTube!

      Yeahh!! Stop whatever you’re doing! The world might end if you don’t hear the news. Said no manicurist ever. But anyhoo, a short and to the point update post to let you know that I a) fixed the “no internet” issue I’ve been dealing with of late, and b) am finally up on YouTube. Of course there is not
