Well, I’d hoped to post some nail art inbetween my two #ClaireStelle8Challenge prompts, but it wasn’t to be. Instead, I’m back with my second #clairestelle8sept design: a spring mani in autumn colors (See: Ornate Owl for a fall mani in spring colors). And it’s a garden snail!

Oh, I love this blue. It’s bright and yet not absolutely saturated and obnoxious. It’s dark but not so dark that it doesn’t show up as blue in most lighting situations. It is probably one of the few polishes that I would get a backup bottle to. Most other polish Read More

Lavender coffee is a miracle of deliciousness in itself, but the real surprise is that I’m posting this month’s coffee mani on not the last day possible. Possibly it is because I am turning it in for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s “Spring Colors” prompt. I just hope I do as well next month. Read More

#WhenColoursCollide was much more vigilant this time about people strictly sticking to the color prompt and to that I say, ‘Good for them!’ It felt like people were playing fast and loose with the prompts more and more, and it was time to rein it in. And, of course, it Read More

Molly is the indie maker behind Shinespark Polish. We were not close friends, but I had purchased from her several times and we had interacted on Instagram. I admired her so much and love her polishes. I heard about her murder two days after it occurred. She was going to Read More

My nails on both hands were covered with designs I couldn’t bear to part with yet so, for the first time in months, we have a design on falsies. This is for #AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘F’ is for Flowers prompt. I wanted to use more of the stamping plates from the Bundle Read More
