Clear Out of the Blue


Holographic silver meets blue micro glitter in these simple, jewel-toned nails that also make great use of a sort of forgotten bar glitter topper, Nails Inc.’s Fibre Optic in Mayfair Mews (where “sort of” actually means “totally” – I found Mayfair Mews buried under a little pile of likewise forgotten polishes today.)


I really like these types of tone-on-tone manicures (Mayfair Mews dabbed on in a kind of top-down gradient over three coats of Essence’s Colour & Go in It’s Raining Men!), with the silver holo, Liquid Sky Lacquer’s Dream, adding a nice little hit of silver rainbow sunshine. Really pretty, and pretty darn easy, too.


I Think I’ll Keep Him

I Think I'll Keep Him

Yes, today is the day children run around in costumes extorting candy from their neighbours in exchange for not egging their homes, but it’s also a day nearer and dearer to my heart, because it’s my wedding anniversary! My husband and I are celebrating our ninth this Halloween, and moments of blinding rage aside (dude, how can you not know where the cheese grater is kept after nine freaking years?!?) I can’t imagine my life without him. I don’t want to imagine my life without him. What can I say, the man just gets me.

Which is why when it came time to honour our nine year union with little gifts, he played right into my nail art wheelhouse and came home toting a very promising Sephora bag full of sweet Nails Inc. swag, including this fun little holographic number, Fibre Optic in Mayfair Mews.

So I did these nails in honour of my husband, my best friend, who has always been willing to trudge around the city by bus to get his wife a glittery little something just because it will put a smile on her face. I guess I have no choice now but to keep him for at least another nine years. 😉

Plus he fixes my computer. You just can’t kick a man out of bed who can do THAT.
