Hello friends, happiest of New Years to you all!  But where the bloody heck have I been?  I don’t write, I don’t call…you’d be correct in wondering where the love is.  Well, it was down in Orlando, Florida, where Mr. Finger Candy and I spent Christmas as guests of the House of Mouse.  I have a ton of fun tales to share with you, but first I thought I ought to put a final bow on 2017, or the year I barely nail art’d on this nail art blog.  But I suppose my brain and body were occupied with other things last year, like enjoying long-planned bucket list vacations and, you know, shedding nearly 80 pounds.

But I have made a promise to myself (don’t call it a resolution) that I will nail art better in the new year.  Also grammar gooder.  Until then, let’s take a peek at some of my favourites of 2017.

Your Face is Good, I’m a Soos! – a lacquered ode to Gravity Falls’ sweet doofus handyman, Soos.

Marvelous Mermaid – this was some next level glitter placement!

FingerCandy.ca, eh? – a new-ish domain name change seemed to require some special occasion nails.

The Nightclub at the Edge of the Universe – my high school and university stomping grounds closed up shop this year.  As always, so long and thanks for all the fish, Zaphod’s.

Hello Cuteness! – I had planned to make my way through all of the designs in this cool Hello Kitty nail art book, but I sadly managed just two.  I think I kicked things off with a bang, though, with this adorable classic Kitty design.

Disco Butterflies – shine on, you crazy, glittery disco butterflies!

Fireworks on 4th –  although in hindsight, and having seen a great number of them over the past week, this manicure actually depicts a laser light show.  Details, details!

Fireworks Shade

Tim Hortons – love the nail art, maybe ever so less enamored with the coffee itself.

Literary Inspiration: Duma Key – Stephen King goes to the beach.  Horrors predictably follow.

Death Note – I may have been the only person who enjoyed this Netflix movie, but I thought it was a total hoot.
