My love for spiders is hopefully not causing too many people distress, but be warned that this post chock full of eight-legged beauties. Although…if you’ve followed me for very long at all you’d know that I always find myself painting spider nail art every Halloween/October. 😏 Did I just use Read More

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve made it to the halfway point and a little past it. Woof! I also didn’t finish one of my ink drawing on the day I was supposed to and had to play catch Read More

Bright celery green nail art with a skull and crossed swords stamped on top.

Skull and Swords

October 17, 2020 Lisa 1

It feels a little lame to say this, but I had to color in the stamping decal of the skull twice because my brain registered the sword tips as horns on the skull so I used the wrong color on them. Woops! Anyway, this nail art falls into a general Read More

Pugly green nail art with skeletal mermaid cat double stamping decals and a teal to green gradient.

Undead Mermaid Cats of the Deep

October 13, 2020 Lisa 1

Halloween tends to really bring my love for cats out to play. It’s probably why 2 out of 3 nail arts have featured kitties so far. I doubt I’ll be able to keep such a pawsome ratio up with Inktober going on as well, but hopefully there will be one Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 2. Blade is an armed praying mantis. Rodent is a kangaroo rat. Fancy is a polish chicken. Teeth are a bunch of teeth. Throw is a blanket. Hope is sharing birds. Disgusting is slimy okra.

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 The first full week of Inktober has passed and I have already had a few moments where I rather resented that I had to draw today because I drew yesterday. On the other hand, Read More

Spooky Cats

October 7, 2020 Lisa 3

September’s Mani X Me box had a Pet Cemetery theme so, of course, I could not resist. And once I realized that I could actually put a hold on my subscription and skip the boxes where I wasn’t interested in everything (generally the stamping polishes are colors I already have Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 1. Fish is a blowfish. Wisp is a pair of ghosts. Bulky is an elephant. Radio is a radio.

Inktober 2020 – Week 1

October 5, 2020 Lisa 4

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve been wanting to participate in Inktober for the past few years, but it always competes with my desire to paint as much Halloween nail art as possible. However, pandemics suck away my creative Read More

Orange nail art modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch.

The Scream

October 2, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I’m kicking off my Halloween season with a modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Because it’s the season of screaming! (Except don’t. Because that creates more water droplets. 😱) I was really hoping to make the simple lines of the stamping image pop Read More

Funny coffee nail stamping decals over black baby boomer french tips with rainbowy bar glitter.

Coffee Makes Me Poop

September 29, 2020 Lisa 4

Happy International Coffee Day! Was I being too tmi? Well, what else can you expect from me. I’ve been wanting to paint this exact rainbow coffee nail art for a while because the contrast between the cheeriness of the rainbow-y bar glitter and the wording (carefully crafted by removing the Read More

Cute little flower-shelled snail paired with a bright orange to nude crelly polish packed with colorful glitter.

Sweety Snail

September 24, 2020 Lisa 2

I must not be much of a gardener because I can’t stop loving snails. They’re both so pretty in the real world and so very cute in illustrated form. When I was searching through my five million stamping plates for the right image to pair with Femme Fatale’s gorgeous thermal Read More
