Seemingly green St Patrick's Day nail art with clover which has a pink thermal polish secret.

St. Patrick’s Glitter

March 17, 2020 Lisa 1

Okay, let’s face it. If St. Patrick were around he likely would be horrified at the thought of glitter because anyone who works with glitter knows its of the devil. (I love it anyway.) (In controlled situations.) But it made a fun title and anyone who is trying to be Read More

Pi Day nail art with a cream colored background π symbols and pie-related stamping decals.

Pi Day 2020

March 14, 2020 Lisa 2

I don’t paint new nail art for Pi Day every year, but I do always try to eat some sort of pie. Today I even had leftover pizza (pie) for lunch and then I did manage to snag a frozen key lime pie from the store since the thing that Read More

Soft pink and grey nail art with handsome tiger suitor and heart pattern.

No Lion Hearts

February 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Today’s nail art was inspired by a song, but not a new one. Girl’s Generation (or SNSD) hasn’t put out a new song since 2017 and the song I thought of immediately when I saw the tiger image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 is from their 2015 album Lion Read More

Simple and bright pink nail art with heart and love letters stamping decals.

All My Love Letters

February 16, 2020 Lisa 2

(Really, I would have just called this “Love Letters”, but I already used that title.) Today I have a really simple love-filled nail design that probably would have been perfect to post on Valentine’s Day, but did I want to finish editing my photos and write everything up on Friday? Read More

Coppery magnetic nail art with spirit animal wolf stamping images (or werewolf if that's how you see it).

Spirit of the Wolf

February 9, 2020 Lisa 2

Today’s theme brought to you by the @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘W’ is for Wolf prompt and my personal goal to use all my holiday stamping plates this year. Also, my heart has been stolen by a magnetic polish. And I suck at using them so that says a lot… Products used Base Read More

Chocolate-y heart nail art for Valentine's Day in non-traditional colors.

Love is a Rocky Road

February 4, 2020 Lisa 3

Am I talking about chocolate ice cream with nuts and marshmallows or is this all about how love is a journey which can often be difficult? Nah, it’s all about this chocolate-y Pantone color called Rocky Road for #pantone2019winterchallenge. I decided to go real simple with this nail art and Read More

Year of the Rat nail art with a deep red base and Chinese paper cutting stamping images of rats.

Year of the Rat

Happy Chinese New Year, friends! Today’s nail art has taken the place of Rooster Revisted as my favorite Chinese zodiac nail art design. I hope you like it as much as I do. 😘 It started with this deep red holographic/flakie indie polish from Vapid Lacquer that, I’m sorry to Read More

Pink and white thermal mani with adorable heart and cactus nail decals and gold shimmer.

Love is Prickly

January 23, 2020 Lisa 0

Now it’s not Valentine’s Day yet, but it is time for the letter ‘V’ in the #AZNailArtChallenge so Valentine’s Day is a natural pick for something that everyone can participate in. I was more than happy to use one of the first designs I painted when I was getting back Read More

Year of the Pig nail art with pig stamping in all of the pig's lucky colors: brown, grey, and yellow.

Lucky Pig

January 17, 2020 Lisa 0

The traditional colors for Chinese New Year are red and gold and I already painted that for the Year of the Pig. But each year also has lucky colors associated with it (for Pigs it’s yellow, grey, and brown) and I decided I wanted to paint designs for that too. Read More

Three monochrome Christmas manis in purple, blue, and yellow.

Rainbow Christmas part 1

January 10, 2020 Lisa 0

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More
