A rainbow glow in the dark mani of silhouetted Halloween images of bats, jack-o-lanterns, haunted castle, spiders, and eyeball candy glowing out from a Christmas tree frame.

Halloween Tree

December 31, 2020 Lisa 3

I might as well end this crap year with something that makes me very happy. So today on New Years Eve I’m sharing the mani I painted for the #halloweenforevercollab: a Halloween Tree. The Nightmare Before Christmas has forever cemented a love of blending Christmas and Halloween together and so Read More

A New Years mani with a grey background, bright green stamping of winter/spring/summer/fall seasons and "2021" on top.

Seasons of 2021

December 30, 2020 Lisa 2

The new year has generally always held hope of being better than the last one (or worse if life has worn you down that far). I remember thinking 2020 would be better than 2019. hahaha But I think most of us can agree that because of vaccines (and certain elections Read More

A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More

A super bling Christmas mani starting with a red/green thermal polish, bright green swirls, and dancing reindeer stamping decals.

Reindeer Holiday

December 25, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

Olive Christmas art featuring accent nails with poinsettia stamping decals and a wee bird and holographic olive polish.

The Poinsettia

December 22, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I proudly prove that I not only have enough green nail polish to paint yet another monochrome green mani, but I have enough olive polishes to do it. *high fives self* I’ve rather struggled to put together monochrome looks with other colors, but this olive mani came together like Read More

Nail art of Santa handing out fishy presents to cute penguins for Christmas and another penguin celebrating New Years on a blue crelly background.

Presents for Penguins

December 20, 2020 Lisa 2

Santa doesn’t just give out presents to all the good boys and girls. Surely all the good penguins also get a fishy treat for Christmas. Although…I am very uncertain what kind of cookies they would leave for Santa. 🤢🤣 When I was little my mom went through a crocheting phase Read More

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

Red Reindeer Christmas

December 17, 2020 Lisa 3

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

A champagne to rose to purple thermal polish combined with stamping decals of mugs, tea pots, and Alice falling endlessly.

Happy International Tea Day!

December 15, 2020 Lisa 5

For all the coffee nail art I have painted over the years, I have to admit I’ve been drinking more tea than coffee lately. It started with a strong tea drinking culture at work and then I started trying to cut down on caffeine later in the day. Now I Read More

Brown Stamping Polish Comparison

Dark brown stamping polish comparison

December 13, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s time to compare those browns! For reference, colors are described as warm or cool depending on if they are yellow-leaning (warm) or blue-leaning (cool) or in the case of these browns orange and purple. Also, I apologize for the lint. I am lint woman and I can only be Read More
