The polish in this post was provided for my honest review.
Can you believe that March is almost over already? I don’t know what’s happening to the time lately! I just know that I don’t have enough of it! In any case, that means that April’s Polish Pickup is almost here. Today I have Northern Star’s polish for April’s Polish Pickup, Age of Aquarius, to share with you.
One of the things I was thinking about with this week’s Futuristic theme was: how will people do their nails in the future? There was a time when red or neutral nail polish was about all you’d see; half moons were huge in the 30s, and the French manicure was all the rage in the 80s – and in some circles, it’s still all the rage. These days, you can get any and every colour, and a lot more nail art is being done – although most people still tend to go for a plain colour.
In the future, I figured, maybe a metallic chrome finish will be all the rage. And, as fashions tend to do, maybe the half moon fashion will come around again, just with a bit of a twist! This is what I came up with:
I was really having a hard time coming up with an idea for the final day of The Digital Dozen does Paper when suddenly it occurred to me. There was one day in my life on which paper had an unusual significance. Don’t get me wrong, paper is important on many days – we use it to learn, to immerse ourselves in stories, to express ourselves. But on this one day, paper was a part of the celebration of my husband and I choosing a life together – my wedding day! I decided that rather than buying expensive flowers which would only wilt and die, I’d make my own flowers for my and my bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as all of the table decor – from paper! In fact, I posted a little about the process of making the flowers. I absolutely loved them and today’s nail art is inspired by those paper flowers that I painstakingly folded.
How about a nice, palate-cleansing swatch after yesterday’s crazy water marble? Today I am going to share with you a polish from one of my favourite brands, Supermoon Lacquer. Ever since I made my first purchase from the relatively new brand, Supermoon has rocketed up to being one of my top brands. Every polish I’ve tried from them so far has been fantastic! Today’s is no exception, so let’s take a look at Now I’m Gonna Eat You, Fool!(more…)
Today I have one from the stash to share with you – I did these nails months ago but never got around to posting them. I didn’t quite love the nail art so it always seemed like there was something else to post first. I still think they’re fun, though, so I’m glad I’m finally getting around to sharing them with you!
It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen Does Contrast week. So far, I’ve done what I considered the three more obvious colour contrast combinations – red and green, orange and blue, and yellow and purple. Today, I decided to go with a less traditional combination – pink and turquoise.

If you saw my post last week you’ll be glad to know that I am doing a lot better and I’m back to work today. I also have a new post to share with you! If you’re following me on Snapchat, you would have seen the fun nail art package I recently got from Born Pretty Store (and if not – my snapcode is in the sidebar!). The package included a turquoise stamping polish which I will be sharing with you today.
