Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovelies!

I've been largely without inspiration for the past few days. Which is an issue, with Digit-al Dozen week coming up (that was a FAST month)! I did produce a simple floral look, which I posted to Instagram and Facebook. But today I do have something for you!

Yes, more lace moons. But on a multichrome polish called Nostalgia, how could I do otherwise?!

The hair on my nail in this photo and the next drives me bananas. BANANAS.

This look began with three easy coats of Nostalgia, which I did without using black undies. (You don't need them for I Love Nail Polish multichromes, though using them would let you get away with one to two coats of the polish instead of three.) Multichrome polishes can often be underwhelming, taking all kinds of weird hand poses to show a colour shift. NOT THIS ONE. Look at these photos! Swoon!

The design was done using white acrylic paint, which I should have thinned with water but did not, and a combination of a liner brush, a script brush, and a tiny detail brush. It was inspired by this image, which I found on Google. I didn't want to do a more complicated lace pattern, lest I cover up more of the beautiful base polish. Seriously, this one takes my breath away.

Polishes used:
Duri - Rejuvacote (base coat)
white acrylic paint
liner brush
script brush
tiny detail brush

Today we finally got a break in the frigid cold we were having; yesterday it was down to -39˚C with the wind chill (-38˚F). Are you in the part of North America currently being walloped by the huge winter storm? If so, I hope you're keeping as warm as possible! Protect those fingers and toes and noses and ears!




  1. It is just beautiful and so elegant.

  2. Wow, Nostalgia is just so beautiful!

  3. You are SOOO good at lace! Isnt Nostalgia just divine?! I love how little you have to do or look to see all of the colors in her chromes.

  4. Thank you so much! And YES, it's beautiful -- and unique, in my opinion, whereas lots of multichromes out there are dupes of each other.
