Sugar skull nail art for the Day of the Dead on black jelly teal glitter fake nails with freehand painted cat and fish sugar skulls and flowers.

Sugar Skull Cat

December 2, 2020 Lisa 1

I’ve been wanting to paint a sugar skull cat and accompanying fish for at least two years. In fact, the false nails I used for this mani have been sporting their black jelly base since 2019’s Day of the Dead. I am good at intimidating myself out of freehand painting. Read More

Happy December! I’m back with some glow in the dark goodness! A great way to start any month on the blog. I posted this a little early on Instagram to finish out @liganailista’s monthly challenge with a cloud prompt. And Beauty BigBang’s XL-082 stamping plate had the perfect scene with Read More

A glow in the dark fire-y thermal red and black nail art with double stamped scorpion and flames and edgy black textured polish accent nails.

While I was busy wrapping things up for Inktober I didn’t get around to finishing my last Halloween nail art and posting it. So here we are now, a tiny bit late for last week’s #pantone2020winterchallenge. Life is messy, but hopefully this glow in the dark mani with scorpions and Read More

Bright green and coral thermal polish manicure with cute jack-o-lantern pumpkins stamped on top.

The Changing Pumpkins

October 28, 2020 Lisa 3

Jack-o-lanterns are a pretty standard nail art theme, so let’s get basic! 🀣 I painted this one clear back in November last year. It was all part of my plan to try and paint extra Halloween manis all year so I could post lots during my favorite nail art-ing month Read More

A soft pink and blue nail art decorated with hooded cobra stamping decals and a little dash of the holographic.

Because it’s me, I checked my spreadsheet of Halloween subjects halfway into the month and realized that I had been missing half of my Halloween nail art goals! So here I am blowing the snake goal out of the water with a totally Halloween looking fierce and deadly snake nail Read More

A white and purple ghostly nail art with negative space stamping, boo-ing ghosts and glow in the dark action!

Ghosts Boo You (It glows!)

October 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Negative space ghost images are fairly common on Halloween-themed stamping plates, but I hadn’t gotten around to using any of them until now. I bracketed my inner-nail ghosts with the negative space stamping. But this mani really became extra special because of the indie polish I used as the base. Read More

Elegant golden brown nail art with spider web stamping, small metal spider sequins, and a large pearl spider nail charm.

My love for spiders is hopefully not causing too many people distress, but be warned that this post chock full of eight-legged beauties. Although…if you’ve followed me for very long at all you’d know that I always find myself painting spider nail art every Halloween/October. 😏 Did I just use Read More

Bright celery green nail art with a skull and crossed swords stamped on top.

Skull and Swords

October 17, 2020 Lisa 2

It feels a little lame to say this, but I had to color in the stamping decal of the skull twice because my brain registered the sword tips as horns on the skull so I used the wrong color on them. Woops! Anyway, this nail art falls into a general Read More

Pugly green nail art with skeletal mermaid cat double stamping decals and a teal to green gradient.

Undead Mermaid Cats of the Deep

October 13, 2020 Lisa 1

Halloween tends to really bring my love for cats out to play. It’s probably why 2 out of 3 nail arts have featured kitties so far. I doubt I’ll be able to keep such a pawsome ratio up with Inktober going on as well, but hopefully there will be one Read More

True blue nail art decorated with a rising zombie cat and glow in the dark ghost cat.

Spooky Cats

October 7, 2020 Lisa 3

September’s Mani X Me box had a Pet Cemetery theme so, of course, I could not resist. And once I realized that I could actually put a hold on my subscription and skip the boxes where I wasn’t interested in everything (generally the stamping polishes are colors I already have Read More
