When I first got started in nail art, galaxy manis used to only mean some kind of sponged gradient with stars added on top, but these days there’s such a wide range of techniques to play with. Instead of a gradient, why not use a magnetic polish? Especially a gel Read More

Valentine’s Day is over but the Instagram prompts keep coming. I don’t mind. I still have plenty of unused things that fit the theme. One thing about working with false nails all the time. I actually had this set painted for years. I can’t even remember what my original plan Read More

I’ve really been hitting the whole Valentine’s Day thing much harder this year than I usually do, but sometimes it’s fun to just go all in. Except in colors. I just looked back at this month’s progress and I haven’t exactly been indulging in soft and sweet love-y pastels. Well, Read More

I really wasn’t sure if I would ever get around to using the Maximalist ManixMe plates that were in last year’s February box. They kinda fell under things that are useful, but aren’t particularly my style and so it’s a dice throw if I will think to use them. Luckily, Read More

If you’ve seen my other Chinese New Year nail art designs, you’ll know that I like to bring out my longer falsies for this particular holiday. (And for some reason I favor shorter falsies for the end of December one…huh…) This year I kept my classically colored red/black/gold set very Read More
