It has been pumpkin everything season for a while now. I’m not the hugest fan of non-savory pumpkin foods, but I do enjoy a good pumpkin latte (even if I do love peppermint and gingerbread more). I was looking at #coffeenails on Instagram and it is so full of just Read More

It has been a long time since I attempted a reciprocal gradient. In fact, I’d have to check my photos to even see if I have done one since I started this blog. I had no idea what I was going to do but, since most nail artists seemed to Read More

It is the last day of the #31DC2017 (Honor Nails You ❤️). I can’t believe I made it. For my inspiration, I chose a beautiful mani by @manideforfaretchipie which you can see here. Now I did not have the same stamping plate as her, not even close. So I decided Read More

Eternal Hobbies (kitties!)
