I’ve seen a few red/green thermal polishes come out this year, but I think Shinespark Polish came out with the first one for Christmas when she released it in 2017. I couldn’t resist buying it and I’m so glad I did. This is the first design I painted with it, Read More

November 29, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] I have been coveting Beauty BigBang’s J6504TM set of duochrome stamping polishes since they came out a few months ago. Partly because rainbow is my favorite color and duochromes add a tiny slice of a rainbow to any nail art they are used in. a Partly because the Read More

Where did the month go? LOL Between holiday plans, a small cold, and the name servers losing my site for a few days I’ve ghosted through most of November. The Pokedex challenge fell to the wayside along with all the other challenges. My hope that I’d manage four freehand looks Read More

Today I have a recreation of one of Sharon Medran’s (@sharnailstar) beautiful nail art designs because it’s her birthday! Woo!

I didn’t put it on my list, but I kinda wanted to paint something Halloween-ish with a neon yellow background so I combined it with #AZNailArtChallenge’s delightful ‘S’ is for Spider prompt. I used it as a clearing house to finish up a bunch of little goals and the result Read More
