Coffee Blues

October 2, 2017 Lisa 0

Guys, I missed International Coffee Day. I am so sad. But I turned that sorrow into a calendar reminder for next year so as long as I don’t do the 31 Day Challenge again, I think we’re good. And I won’t. Because the 31 Day Challenge this year left me Read More

Grey Skull

September 3, 2017 Lisa 0

Sadly, not He-man nails, although that is an idea to be explored later… 😉 This particular combination brought to you by the Facebook group #WhenColoursCollide‘s Grey and Gold (only) prompt. I decided to finally play a little with my Sinful Colors Hypnotic Transforming Top Coat. It is a very fun Read More

Ride the Carousel

I adore carousels. I still have a calendar that is over a decade old, but I won’t let go of it because it has carousel horses. I have a cross-stitch that is even older than the calendar that’s about halfway finished. I work on it every couple of years. Maybe Read More

I haven’t had a new blog post in two days, but believe me I’ve been keeping busy (or you can check my instagram account if you need proof). I was watching one of Jessface90‘s polish swatching videos and she made a remark about her white gel base starting to peel Read More

Lemons First

August 8, 2017 Lisa 2

Do I know why I decided to title this “Lemons First”? No. No, I do not. #GlamNailChallengeAug had a lemon prompt. I’d already done a cheerful-style lemon nail art so this time I decided to go for a more sophisticated yellow and grey look. That worked out well for me Read More

Rarity Loves Fashion

April 3, 2017 Lisa 4

I’m continuing my series of the mane six manis to celebrate My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 7 airing in mid-April with Rarity! She and I both have a love of fashion (although her love is mainstream and mine tends to be niche). I used the second half of Read More

Embroidered Denim

March 1, 2017 Lisa 6

The theme for the 30 Day Challenge was blue and since I’d won two gorgeous nail plates from a drawing by Creative Shop I decided to use one of them. Plate 41 has a denim pattern and a flower pattern that looks like embroidery to me. So I combined them Read More
