Swatch & Art: Fair Maiden Polish - The Upside Down

Welcome! I feel like I've been a bit neglectful with my nails lately, but maybe part of it is that I just had a beautiful color on and enjoyed the polish for a few days before moving on to the art. It's certainly a pretty color! Can you pick up on the theme based on the art? The name of the polish is perfect too ;)

I've tried it before and didn't succeed, but I'm going to stay hopeful. The intention is to post daily with new prompts, and it starts with red!

Swatch & Art: Tonic Polish - Taking on Toronto

Hello and welcome~! The week is coming to a close, and I, for one, am glad of it! Last weekend I took out a drawer of polish and actually swatched nail tips and made labels, so a kind of mini organization project. That is, until I ran out of label tape! I hope to pick up a refill and continue on, and it's also a nice refresher on what's in the collection that may have gotten pushed back by newcomers. This one though, went onto my nails right away when I got it, and I know there's much anticipation for its official release, so I wanted to share!

Swatch & Art: Tonic Polish - Come Wander

Welcome~! So I was diligently working on swatching my newest Tonics when I was completely derailed by the arrival of a luminaura powder. If you haven't seen it around yet, look it up on IG or YT, it's mesmerizing! But being a chrome powder, they work best with gels, and gels can be a pain, so it's slow going, I'm on my third mani but still have so much I want to test. But I did finish this little gem, as I heart it would be restocked, so it seemed relevant to do the write up ;)

It's a complex one, so lots of pictures, get ready!

Swatch & Art: a Tonic Polish and Baroness X combo!

Hello & Welcome! Wow it's been a while since my last post.. I've been trying to polish but keep getting in a creative slump and filing my nails a little too much. Then I have to wait for them to gain back some length, as I often put off specific designs because I want them to fit better. Ah well, it happens. I've got something to show today, so let's get to it!
