I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more Read More

Someone had a galactic challenge prompt (that I missed) and two other challenges had snowflake prompts (that I’m late for) and the stamping plate I used today had this lovely combination of both. And so I found myself painting classic galaxy nails even though I’ve said several times that I’m Read More

I’ve seen a few red/green thermal polishes come out this year, but I think Shinespark Polish came out with the first one for Christmas when she released it in 2017. I couldn’t resist buying it and I’m so glad I did. This is the first design I painted with it, Read More

My final review for the latest batch of what Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent to me is Beauty BigBang’s XL-011 stamping plate. Now I was originally supposed to review this stamping plate along with the batch I painted in October, but there was a problem with one of the images. Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – duochrome stamping set J6504TM

November 29, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] I have been coveting Beauty BigBang’s J6504TM set of duochrome stamping polishes since they came out a few months ago. Partly because rainbow is my favorite color and duochromes add a tiny slice of a rainbow to any nail art they are used in. a Partly because the Read More

Where did the month go? LOL Between holiday plans, a small cold, and the name servers losing my site for a few days I’ve ghosted through most of November. The Pokedex challenge fell to the wayside along with all the other challenges. My hope that I’d manage four freehand looks Read More

Happy Birthday, Sharon!

Today I have a recreation of one of Sharon Medran’s (@sharnailstar) beautiful nail art designs because it’s her birthday! Woo! Sharon never uses advanced/reverse stamping so it’s always a learning experience seeing how she layers stamping images to get complex looks. Last year I recreated a feather look of hers Read More
