We are the Corn People

November 27, 2019 Lisa 0

For the longest time, I just figured that people from Mexico were the ones who ate the most corn. Was it the tortillas and tamales? I don’t know. But it was an unspoken and completely incorrect impression. In fact, Americans are the biggest corn consumers in the world followed closely Read More

Blue Bird of Autumn – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 24, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I painted this in September, but it really felt more fall-like than summer so I have held it back until now. Unfortunately, that meant holding back my review for Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” as well, but… Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” …it ended up looking so similar to their “Orange Autumn” Read More

Can it be? Am I posting my mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge’s Evening Blue shade on not-Sunday? 😂 My design was inspired by this month, which, as discussed with others earlier today, is really more about the buying of the things. Black Friday and Cyber Monday become increasingly spread out as stores Read More

Eden Revisited

Woops! I looked at Ine’s rules for the #pantone2019winterchallenge and realized I should have had some green on my accent nail. I was about to post it with at least an apology, but I realized I still had the design on my nails and I only needed to change one. Read More

Flowers of Eden

Today’s nail art is supposed to mainly use Pantone’s lovely forest green shade: Eden. I have had to paint this one three different times. The first color I picked was too dark so I decided to try again. The second one (this one) is too light, but I decided to Read More

Autumn Owl – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 13, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today the color is pink! (And mustard, which I think looks fantastic combined with pink.) Born Pretty’s “Cosmos Bouquet” from their Candy Color stamping polish set is that perfect pink between this might be red and dark enough to work perfectly against white and black backgrounds. Here’s my Read More

Crème de Pêche Floral

A quick update this morning with a soft, neutral-colored nail art. I painted this for Ine’s (@inegeek) #pantone2019winterchallenge. KBShimmer’s “Tiers of Joy” was the closest I could come to a shade that matched Patone’s Crème de Pêche. Products Used Base Polish: KBShimmer’s “Tiers of Joy“ Stamping Polish: Mundo de Unas’ Read More

Key to the Cranberry Forest

November 3, 2019 Lisa 0

A simple nail art today with a super bright shade of red. I am enjoying the #pantone2019winterchallenge since its polish swatch focus forces me to stop piling more details in on a single nail art. Today’s shade is Cranberry, although Ine (@inegeek) has already posted the prompt for next week: Read More
