Fantasy Forest Spirit

One of my favorite movie memories was watching the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke, both the transformations and when it was walking on the ground and plants just sprung up beneath its feet. It was so utterly magical to me. Like…that’s what a nature god should be (see also: Meredith Read More

I ended up swapping out days so you’re getting the Fantastic Mr. Fox early, thus covering both Stripes (#31DC2017, day 12) and Inspired by a Garment (#nailchallengecollaborative). And I know the expectation for Inspired by a Garment is generally something from fashion week or whatever. I’m sure that would boost Read More

Hehehe I know the guy with his hand up is probably reaching for his glasses so he can turn into Superman, but he’s also bursting through a wall if you’re familiar with the stamping plate. To be honest, I’ve always had a lot of sympathy for the property owners when Read More

Hand me the prompts Metallic and Stripes and you can bet I’m going to come up with something steampunk first off and go with it. Fortunately I had a beautiful holographic brown metallic polish in my order from Shinespark Polish to play with. It was unfortunately dark outside when I Read More

September 7, 2017 Lisa 2

There were a lot of Back to School prompts at the start of September and since I’ve already done two other manicures based on it, I was just going to skip the prompts this month. But then I thought of the iconic outfit from Clueless (and Iggy Azalea’s music video Read More

We’re at the sixth day of the #31DC2017 and hopefully you’ve realized I’m painting on falsies so when my nail shape changes tomorrow it’s not a shock. 😉 I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to paint a recognizable cactus, but I think I made it work. It’s Read More

We’re at the fifth day of the #31DC2017 and I’m still hopeful about keeping up. Lot of blog posts though, so I am sorry if this is brief. I know a lily pond is probably a pretty typical nature subject–I mean, I’ve done a lily pond manicure before and it’s Read More

We’re at the fourth day of the #31DC2017 and so far my health is hanging in there. I’m hopeful about not falling behind. 🙂 Today I decided to feature one of my favorite kinds of plants: bonsai trees! I framed it with a round-ish frame in the hope of giving Read More

We’re at the third day of the #31DC2017 and I’m back on track again (except for the part where I’ve been feeling a little sick). I’m also trying a new challenge on Instagram that’s in Spanish: #liganailistachallenge. It is a month of VS. prompts and today I chose Day instead Read More
