Vacation! Time for some solid self-care. :)

Just a quick note to say I'm off for vacation, so there shouldn't be any new posts for the next week or so... However I am bringing my camera and some of my nail gear with me to warmer places, so I'll document any nail art I do while I'm there and you can look forward to posts once I'm back with all my tropical-inspired designs! Alright? Alright! So see you guys in a week or so!! :)

If you want, you can link me any tropical designs that you've done on your own in the comments and I can see what's inspired you!

Bon voyage (pour moi)! xx

31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Purple Owl Accent Nail

The next colour in my 31 Day Nail Challenge fills is violet. I also found this supercute owl tutorial on pinterest that I wanted to try, so I combined the two and voila!

Blog updates: Speaking of pinterest, I wanted to let you all know I have finally expanded to other areas of the internet... By that I mean I now have twitter, pinterest and instagram! You can check them out in my sidebar with the rest of my links. I'm pretty excited about Instagram, because I'm using it for manis that don't make it onto the site (mainly ones I've done for friends) and ones that are still in progress. I've also included a mini instagram gallery under my 'Popular Posts' that you can check out. :)

Sinful Colors Tribal Skittles Mani

If you don't live in Canada you might not have heard.... But we just got Target! Know what that means? Sinful Colors! (Even though it kills me not to spell it Colours.) I stopped by the Target at Square One last week and came home with 8 bottles (!!!). But for the price, how can you not. I decided to give a skittles mani (aka different colours on each nail) a try, just so I could use more colours. Topped it off with a tribal design, and I'm left with a mani I love.

31 Day Nail Art Challenge Fill: Matte Blue Tape Mani

Just a quick update today! This is my blue fill for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I decided to do a layered tape mani and finished it off with a matte topcoat because why not. Enjoy! :)

31 Day Nail Art Challenge Fill: Green Glequins / Hex Glitter Gradient Mani

Shiny! That was my first thought when I finished this mani, and I love it! It makes me think of fish scales or a mermaid's tail!

This look was done as my green fill for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I decided to give the glequins/hex glitter another try, but this time with the added challenge of making it a gradient. What do you think, was I successful? :o)

2013 Nail Art Challenge: OPI Spring Watercolour Mani

The next challenge in my 2013 Nail Art Challenge is to do a design using a technique you haven't tried before. For me this meant trying a watercolour mani, and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. :) I used some of my favourite colours from OPI's Pirates of the Caribbean line for this look since they reminded me of spring.
