Pantone Floral

I have one last nail art to share before the month ends because I’m definitely not going to miss one of my pantone prompts. I kept it very simple according to my energy levels and stuck with three different stamps of the same image. And yet I still had to Read More

A watercolor nail art with a sea turtle with mandala-esque patterns and lots of kelp colored in with actual watercolor paint.

I’ve been in a bit of a funk for the past few days, but I’ve finally gotten myself together enough to write this (brief) post. And, hey, it’s also been a while since I painted something with watercolor. And it’s been even longer–almost two years–since I painted my nails with Read More

A magenta-purple mani with tons of blue and magenta flakies with a wee little smiling banana stamping decal.

Banana-rama

January 27, 2021 Lisa 2

There was a time when I was making myself a green smoothie every day and my home was full of the overripe bananas from the store because I could get them cheaper that way. And while bananas were thriftily in all of them, I was making the real deal green Read More

I’m really happy to say that I’ve managed to keep up with the #HalloweenForeverCollab since November of last year. It’s only three months, but I think that’s my longest run so far. I even turned this one in at the start of the month instead of frantically trying to paint Read More

Fruit-themed bright orange nail art with orange slice and orange stamping decals on top.

The Orange-iest

January 22, 2021 Lisa 2

The only way this nail art could get orange-er is if I’d used an orange stamping polish instead of black. Kinda wish I had, but avoiding black stamping is my personal and eternal challenge so I can’t say it really needed it. 😆 I actually painted this one clear back Read More

Blue and pink nail art of a gentleman cat dressing up in a bow tie to woo his lady in the city using stamping decals.

Gentleman Cat Woos His Lady

January 21, 2021 Lisa 3

So I bought a circle stamping plate years ago that had an image of this little cat wearing a bow tie. And I always thought he was a bit of a nerd dressing up to impress his (cat) lady friend. (He does. Bow ties are great.) This week I finally Read More

Yellow and orange nail art with the demon Luci (cat) from Netflix's Disenchanted freehand painted on top of flames.

Luci the “Cat”

January 19, 2021 Lisa 2

My husband and I have been watching Netflix’s animated tv show Disenchanted since it started. It was created by the same person that started The Simpsons and Futurama–both shows that I watched in their early seasons. So if your sense of humor loved either of them, you’ll also love Disenchanted. Read More

A dusty dark blue mani with transparent jellyfish stamping decals swimming in the sea with little bubbles and flashes of holo.

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

A pastel wintery nail art with snowflake-like flower stamping decals in green, aqua, and orange.

Frosty Flowers

January 10, 2021 Lisa 1

Today I have a winter floral nail art to share that I luckily painted before the 6th. Lucky because my concentration has been shot for the last few days. I am not even sure what I did most of yesterday. I know I did not get this post out like Read More

A cheeky nail art featuring the kawaii dumpster fire and referring to January 6, 2021 as December 37, 2020.

December 37th 2020

January 7, 2021 Lisa 2

Yesterday certainly felt like a shit show and I’m clear across the country from the attack on the Capitol building. Shall we call it a riot or an attempted coup or both? Either way it’s gross and people are dead who shouldn’t be and a lot of other people need Read More
