I’m sorry, dear readers. I’ve been feeling a bit down lately. It’s hard to convince myself to get anything done right now. But I’m still here and the polishes are just as beautiful as ever. Hopefully I will be able to pick myself up and start posting more frequently soon. Read More

I’ve been really bad about getting anything done lately. I did manage to cut my own hair for the first time last night. I think I need to take off a bit more on the top, but so far it’s actually one of the better haircuts I’ve had. Mind you, Read More

The collage for #NailAddictsCollab posted yesterday and I was completely unprepared! I need to get caught up on (mostly) writing my blog posts when I finish everything else. This was a fun one and, for once, easy. The prompt was Untried, Unused, Unloved and you were supposed to get in Read More

I’ve had these on my nails for three days and I’m only now photographing and posting them. Ah, I’ve gotten so lazy. That’s a lie. Yesterday I rearranged a bunch of things in my workroom because that’s what my heart wanted to do most. I’m really liking the changes. I’m Read More

I actually had this done in time to post on Friday, but I was too busy running around or being tired from running around to write all this out. The prompt from 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Christmas Childhood Memories. I wasn’t raised religious so that took out all Read More

For some reason this feels like a mani I have done before, but apparently I have not unless you count the blue ornaments on Blue Ornaments. LOL Maybe it’s because I kept getting the wrong balance of colors and had to repaint my ornaments a few times. I still kind Read More

It’s unicorn time again and so it is also time to bring out my lovely Cupcake holo glitter polishes. This time it was for a fall gradient so I had to supplement the strawberry red and yellow with an orange and a bright green. Fortunately my holo collection has grown Read More

Well, I finally dug out my Born Pretty Chameleon Holo Flakes Powder pot and some no-light gels and top coat to see if I could make it work. Results were patchy and I really, really hate the black. It’s gotten very goopy very quickly and takes three coats for full Read More
