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…

Everyday Inspiration: Anthropologie Ikat wide-leg pants

I’m home!  …sort of. The next stop on my elective tour is Toronto, which is close enough to home for me to stop by the house and raid Meg’s half of our nail polish collection (which, side note, is starting to get out of hand—we really need to do a nail polish clear-out at some…

Disney’s Snow White

Snow White: the fairest in the land (according to a magic mirror…). Hair as black as ebony? Check. Lips as red as a rose? Check. Skin as white as snow? Check. Voice of a dying quail? Double check. Sure, she’s the title character of Disney’s first full-length animated film, but as Disney-obsessed as we are,…

Colour Combo: Scalloped Blue on Blue

So I’ve been MIA for a while and Meg has been doing most of the heavy lifting around here.  MY BAD.  By way of explanation, I’ve been doing my cross-country tour of visiting electives (translation:  seeing a lot of airports, traveling from city to city, and spending a whirlwind two weeks in each place trying…

Scottish Highlands

Reminiscing about the Scottish Highlands in the form of impressionistic nail art.
