I managed to paint several manis in December that I didn’t have the energy to post. It worked out well because this one fit the prompts for both #NailsWithIgFriends’ Winter Animals (hosted by Tricia @artisanloom.nailz this month) and Catherine’s (@mrscronall) monthly prompt for 2020 #mymonthlynaturalmani’s Snowflakes. Products used Base Polishes: Read More

Walk Your Dog Month

Did you know that January is Walk Your Dog Month? I did not, but I am also not a dog owner. Instead, I was searching for a reason to use the dog image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 stamping plate because my goal is to use every single image Read More

Happy Chinese New Year, friends! Today’s nail art has taken the place of Rooster Revisted as my favorite Chinese zodiac nail art design. I hope you like it as much as I do. 😘 It started with this deep red holographic/flakie indie polish from Vapid Lacquer that, I’m sorry to Read More

Now it’s not Valentine’s Day yet, but it is time for the letter ‘V’ in the #AZNailArtChallenge so Valentine’s Day is a natural pick for something that everyone can participate in. I was more than happy to use one of the first designs I painted when I was getting back Read More

The traditional colors for Chinese New Year are red and gold and I already painted that for the Year of the Pig. But each year also has lucky colors associated with it (for Pigs it’s yellow, grey, and brown) and I decided I wanted to paint designs for that too. Read More

January 13, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] The last product(s) that Born Pretty sent to me was a package of products meant to support reviewing a new magnetic gel polish: BP-MSS04 Boundless Galaxy. What I didn’t realize at the time was how grateful I should be that they included the magnet. The little $1 paddle Read More

This particular design also ended up on Instagram before the blog to make the deadline before #pantone2019winterchallenge switched to the new week. Technically, I think I posted around 3 AM so I was still too late. Luckily, Ine is forgiving (or is polite and can’t stop me anyway 🀣). I’m Read More

Rainbow Christmas part 1

January 10, 2020 Lisa 0

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Orange Tiger

It’s terribly convenient when the name of a color can be used both as the title of the nail art inspired by it and the subject. Today I have my Orange Tiger mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge run by the lovely Ine (@inegeek) and it’s not getting posted on the last possible Read More
