Omg, what’s this then? Another wearable manicure? Hell must of frozen over! I’d assume so, especially considering that I’m freezing my tail off. To add to my misery, I’m fully decked out in a tracksuit ensemble designed for elderly men – it keeps the cold out and it’s too cold to be social. As a side not, to all of you Darlings enjoying the warmer climate… I hope you get really wonky tan lines… there. I said it. You made me a monster.

As I have been planning some extraordinarily elaborate designs – because I’m a glutton for punishment and pain takes my mind of the cold – I thought giving myself a breather and chill (lol, climate pun) before the upcoming insanity.

Start by planning out your colourway – I chose grey and nude as the major colours, with an orange feature as a complimentary hue; to nude and to contrast the achromatic pale grey.

Note – your contrast colour talon should be a close colour match the rhinestones used on your grey talons. The reason for this, is that the contrast colour is carried through to the grey, then the positioning of the rhinestones is carried over to the thumb and pinky with the white dot detailing – see it all aligns! Prior to topcoating your feature nail, layer on some AB Glitter – I used my orange rhomus. It adds a little more dimension, throwing light differently to the rhinestones.

Even though they’re not all matchy-matchy the design has a subtle cohesion and I’m really happy with it – sequencing makes me happy. My OCD is pretty unforgiving; it makes owning any Derwent/Copic/Faber Castel products or any type of colour sequenced items a living nightmare. In my personal Hell, there would be Zombies in Kitten Heels, badly done make-up, miss-matched ensembles, spilling stationery onto the street – I wouldn’t even try and survive; I’d genuinely be more concerned with reorganising the probably ruined items. To confirm, I don’t let Gen-pop (Prison slang for General Population) touch my gear, and if you break it – you’ve bought it. Or it’s going for a holiday inside of your person.

To my fellow Aussies, bunker down, try to enjoy the cold... maybe with someone special? Maybe if it becomes another Ice Age you can resort to cannibalism... just don't tell them that.

Fabulous, x

So what you think, Darling?

Share your experiences and how you cope with coming into cooler climates. Also, I’m not endorsing cannibalism… settle. Or I might renege that statement…
