Through lots and lots of swatches, stamping, and trimming, we have achieved a dragon quilt which covers both the #AZNailArtChallenge (quilt), the last prompt from #FireDazedChallengeSept (dragon), and #26GreatNailArtIdeas (Your Signature Style). What do I consider to be my signature style? Too much of too much. LOL I painted these Read More

It’s the twenty-eighth day of the #31DC2017 and I am combining the prompt of Inspired by a Flag with #nailsunitedseptchallenge’s Butterfly. I seriously thought about doing a butterfly flag.

It’s the 27th day of the #31DC2017 and I am finally caught up. Also, I am tired because instead of keeping things simple, I decided to make really complex advanced stamping decals.

This is the last catch-up manicure hopefully. I still have to get today’s nail art on my nails and out, but hopefully I haven’t picked something that will take too long. So the 25th #31DC2017 prompt is Inspired by Fashion and I debated quite a bit on what to do. Read More

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More

Last Wednesday, my cat swarmed up over the fence after another cat and went missing for several days. I spent a lot of time knocking on doors, hanging up signs, and wandering around the neighborhood at 2 AM in the morning. After five days of wondering she finally showed up Read More

I was going to do a different song for #31DC2017 Inspired by a Song, but with my cat’s brief disappearance this month, I am a little obsessed with cats right now. Plus, I’ve loved this song ever since one of my co-workers added it to our group playlist. Can’t Hug Read More

Originally, I was planning on an orange mani for #31DC2017 (Inspired by a Color). But the greatest number of untried polishes I have seems to be in the pink/red family so I picked Colores de Carol’s “Cupid’s Vacation” for my inspiration. It’s this gorgeous pink holographic polish with a few Read More
