   Well, hello there y'all! Good morning! It's currently 6:51am here in Australia and I've yet to catch a wink of sleep.. probably because I napped after work in the afternoon (whoops). I guess you could also attribute my insomnia to my need for a new manicure! I knew I wanted something bright and fun and ikat-y (let's pretend that's an actually adjective, and it isn't made up at all). I spent the night painting, removing, painting, removing... and painting, and removing nail polish trying out different patterns, different colour combos. Here are the ones I was bothered to snap pictures of:

   So, in conclusion, I decided to smush these 3 designs together and got this:

   There is something about the ikat design I just love. Partly because it's so easy and less tedious than trying to create straight perfect lines. Painting those black dividing lines were a pain enough to get straight and even *sob Though I have to admit, in this mani I used black acrylic paint (yes, I've finally bought some!) instead of regular polish; it is so much (SO MUCH) easier to create opaque straight lines. Top it off with a coat of top coat and you can't tell it's not polish *grin

   For some strange reason, these remind me of Fresh Prince of Bel Air.. or is it just me?

   OH AND while I was absent for the most part of this week (on blogger and tumblr) I had a mani that I had only uploaded onto instagram. Just for your viewing pleasure, here they are:

   Just a basic pastel green to blue striped gradient ^^ There were requests on instagram for a tutorial, so I whipped one up real quick.

   Also as a special request from my mum, I made pistachio macarons! And they have feet!

   Andddddd... I think that's all for now. I've bombarded you all with enough photos. Until my next post that is ^^
