A dark blue steampunk nail art with a Westernpunk theme of sheriffs and horses stamped with an old gold stamping polish.

Westernpunk

March 8, 2022 Lisa 0

I have waited two years to post these. Why? It just never seemed to be the right time and it just kept on being so until “steampunk” popped up as a prompt in Instagram. Of course. And somehow the timing seems even more right because Cowgirl Style posted recently. I Read More

Pool party nail art using mint polish and a soft beige glitter crelly with stamping decals of anthropomorphic animals swimming and dj-ing.

Pool Party

July 11, 2021 Lisa 1

The prompt was pool party, a very summer-y topic, and I had this cool stamping plate with little animals playing sports. It’s nice when you get to be utterly literal except I realize now looking at this nail art that it’s an introvert’s pool party. Everyone is all alone on Read More

Nail art with Christmas imagery: Santa, Christmas tree, and Santa's sleigh taking off in a shower of stars on a light tan flakie-filled base.

Christmas Clichés in Neutrals

December 12, 2020 Lisa 3

Browns are not the first color one things of when Christmas colors come up, but you know I like a challenge, friends. So I combined this personal challenge with #pantone2020winterchallenge to bring you today’s look. #pantone2020winterchallenge Ine had some beautiful colors picked this week, but they weren’t brown! So today Read More

A simple fall nail art with stampings of leaves, pumpkins, and other harvest-related items on an apricot jelly polish background.

Pumpkin Harvest of Fall

November 6, 2020 Lisa 3

Today I have a simple nail art on top of a gorgeous nearly-neutral jelly polish. It’s been the first time in a long while that I have combined two nail art challenges, but the fall color scheme from #pantone2020winterchallenge fit well with #aznailartchallenge’s ‘P’ is for Pumpkin prompt. Plus I 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

Camping themed nail art with a night sky on a soft magenta magnetic polish.

Camp More – BP Review (gel polish, magnets)

January 13, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] The last product(s) that Born Pretty sent to me was a package of products meant to support reviewing a new magnetic gel polish: BP-MSS04 Boundless Galaxy. What I didn’t realize at the time was how grateful I should be that they included the magnet. The little $1 paddle Read More

Green and pink nail art featuring the Evil Queen and her apple from Snow White.

Evil is as Glamour Does

October 28, 2019 Lisa 0

We take a small departure from Halloween for this design because the prompt was simply Glamour. And what could be more glamorous than an evil queen? So I happily dug back into my sorely neglected Happily Never After stamping plates from Maniology which made this kind of Halloween-y after all. Read More

Purple, pink, and blue smoosh marble nail art with fabulously hat-ed witch and black cat familiar.

Witch’s Familiar

October 21, 2019 Lisa 0

This was a nail art that just kept getting away from me. I knew a smoosh marble was going to happen, but I didn’t have a color scheme plan for my accent nails. The cat had to be black because that’s @clairestelle8challenge’s prompt but the colors I used in my Read More

Brown and green skeletal pirate nail art with map and compass.

Cursed Pirates

September 19, 2019 Lisa 0

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! I’m so out of practice writing for this blog that I can’t even think of a good pirate-y phrase to say hello again. Hi! I’ve slowly been painting my nails more and more complexly so it’s time to start posting too (and also because Read More
