Back to School Chalkboard Equation Nails With Essence

Back to School Essence Stamped Nailart Sunlight

One of the images I never thought I would use from my Pueen Love Box 02 set suddenly appealed to me for back to school nails.  I never thought I would need a scientific equation nail stamp but loved the other images on the stamping plate, especially the plaid which I have used a few times.  Using it for back to school just screamed chalkboard nails.  I know, it should be whiteboard nails but black is appealing to my mood[Read more]

Quo by Orly Freshly Cut Stamped Manicure

Quo by Orly Freshly Cut Stamped Shade Indirect Sun

Quo by Orly Freshly Cut (stamped) – Shade I tend not to wear red polishes very often but Quo by Orly Freshly Cut caught my attention in the clearance racks at Shoppers Drug Mart.  I can’t resist any Quo polishes when they are on clear-out for only $2 and grabbed a few different ones.  Red is not a colour I usually wear alone though so of course, I had to add some stamping.  The black just tones down that in your face[Read more]

Quo by Orly Breathable Power Packed Swatches

It’s just another #ManiMonday.  Now that the song is stuck in your heard, I have a new polish from Quo by Orly to share.  Power Packed from the Breathable line is a light grey polish that is more suited for a rainy winter day all cuddled up with a steaming mug of tea and a good hardback book (yeah yeah my poor kobo and the environment but something about an actual book) than summer.  But I love a good grey[Read more]
