Nail Diaries: Burberry Plaid

While few of us will seriously entertain the thought of shelling out a month’s salary (often more) to call a designer piece our own, many of us will sheepishly admit to drooling over such luxury items.  As a full-time student, I certainly don’t have the funds to purchase a Céline or Chloé, but that doesn’t…

Nail Diaries: Happy New Year!

Happy new year, everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful Eve celebration last night full of laughter, cheer, a little bubbly, and in our case, the ear-shattering sounds of fireworks without any of the visual benefits.  And so, to fill this sad (but not so sad because indoor warmth and coziness) void in our…

Nail Diaries: Merry Christmas!

“We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas…” MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!!  Since I’m sure you’re all busy preparing for, and enjoying, today’s festivities, I’ll keep this short and sweet.  As the countdown to Christmas comes to an end, we hope you’ve all enjoyed putting up your trees, singing ALL the Christmas…

Nail Diaries: Countdown to Christmas

It’s official, folks.  We’re well into December, we’ve had our first snowfall, and the weather is finally cold enough to warrant bundling up in cozy winter scarves and hats.  The streets are decked out in lights and garlands, we can finally get our hands on a Starbucks Holiday Flat White (seriously, we look forward to this…

Nail Diaries: Pink Zebra Stripes (an homage to Lorelai Gilmore)

It’s been a long time coming… Points if you sang that in your head.  Bonus points if you actually sang it out loud. Now, we realize it’s been well over a week since we lasted posted.  And I, Megan, take full responsibility for that brief hiatus.  (Final-year-of-undergrad-end-of-semester-craziness problems.)  But we’re back!  Hence the opening lyric….

Nail Diaries: Halloween!

It’s Halloween weekend!  We hope you’re all enjoying your All Hallows’ Eve festivities, whether you’re trick-or-treating, or engaging in other more sophisticated celebrations (both of which involve costumes and the consumption of goodies that aren’t so good for you, so things really don’t change much, do they?). Anyway, CaRMS is currently hijacking all of my free…

Throwback: Halloween nails from Octobers past

Me again! Life’s been pretty hectic lately for both Meg and I, so here’s a cop-out post that we’re all going to pretend is perfectly acceptable.  (In my defense, I’ve been on a surgical rotation which means no nail polish.  Otherwise I totally would have had a stunning manicure of some sort to share.  Totally.) Anyway, given…

Polish Purge! Part 1: Reds and Pinks

Alright folks, we finally did it. Meg and I have been collecting nail polish for about…oh, 10 years now.  As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, our nail polish collection is getting out of control.  In fact, it could probably star in its own episode of Hoarders.  Like all problems, our collection started off small….

Colours of the Wind: Disney’s Pocahontas

It’s officially autumn, which leads me to ask this very important question: can you paint with all the colours of the wind? In all seriousness, have you ever thought about what painting with all the colours of the wind means?  Take a second, and then let us know in the comments; we’re a little rusty…

Nail Diaries: Grey Skies Tipped With Black Storms

Oh the weather outside is frightful… Okay, so it isn’t quite blizzarding as the song lyric would suggest, but this week has been fraught (that’s right, fraught) with terrible weather.  Gloomy grey skies, unrelenting downpours, blustering winds, and to top it all off, a few shots of lightning and thunder.  If you ask me, I’d say we’ve officially…

Once Upon a Dream: Disney’s Sleeping Beauty

Our last Disney-related post featured the ever annoying Dying Quail (aka Princess Snow White).  Sticking to the theme of abhorred Disney Princesses, we’ve moved on to the slightly less irritating Sleeping Beauty.  Truthfully, the only reason we dislike Princess Aurora is because she’s the most passive princess of them all.  Saying a grand total of 18…
