Concrete & Cacti

June 5, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s been a month since I posted a design on my cindy hand, but here it is with some cacti stamping decals on Masura’s lovely dark terracotta polish. I am deeply in love with this color, but the polish was so very thick and dried so fast that painting it Read More

Today I’m combining Nail Crazies Unite’s prompt of Inspired by TV Show with a belated National Donut Day holiday to bring you some Homer Simpson nail art. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched The Simpsons on a regular basis, but I still remember it fondly. Lisa Simpson will Read More

I fell in love with the Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle years ago while watching a documentary on raptors (I think it was World of Raptors, 2003, but I’m not sure). It is among the largest eagles in the world in terms of length and wing surface and measures around 3 feet Read More

Okay, not the most original title, but it’s exactly what this nail art is about! Also, I was going to say this is my first set of wedding nails, but I have a #NailFail with wedding birds that I’m just not going to link to… /whistle I do have, like…one(?) Read More

Lavender Coffee

May 24, 2018 Lisa 0

Lavender coffee is a miracle of deliciousness in itself, but the real surprise is that I’m posting this month’s coffee mani on not the last day possible. Possibly it is because I am turning it in for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s “Spring Colors” prompt. I just hope I do as well next month. Read More
