Year of the Ox (x2)

February 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

Nail art of Santa handing out fishy presents to cute penguins for Christmas and another penguin celebrating New Years on a blue crelly background.

Presents for Penguins

December 20, 2020 Lisa 2

Santa doesn’t just give out presents to all the good boys and girls. Surely all the good penguins also get a fishy treat for Christmas. Although…I am very uncertain what kind of cookies they would leave for Santa. 🤢🤣 When I was little my mom went through a crocheting phase Read More

It has been one of those weeks where I just can’t find the energy to post even though I have plenty of nail art to post. So here we are on my first of two posts on Saturday with some winter nail art of a bright red cardinal and lots Read More

Baby boomer french tip nails with a Wonder Woman water decal.

Wonder Woman

March 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I went even simpler with my simple nail art today with a single Wonder Woman water decal and one little row of stars to follow my french tip. Why? Because I’m still steeped in my delusion that I can also finish #liganailistachallenge’s March prompt list. Only two to go, right? Read More

Vampire Hangries are Messy

October 13, 2019 Lisa 0

I mean…it’s bad enough being a regular human and getting hangry when your blood sugar levels drop. I can only imagine what it’s like for vampires… 😉 Products Used Base Polishes: Celestial Polish’s “The Blood is the Life“, Pretty Serious’ “Forbidden Zone“, and Sinful Colors’ “Sin-ammon“ Stamping Polishes: B.

February 20, 2019 Lisa 0

Today I have Unicorns for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb. This is possibly the first time I’ve posted a prompt on time for this challenge in many, many weeks. Ah, well. That’s what getting sick does to you. I almost turned this in for #WhenColoursCollide’s yellow/orange/red theme, but then I realized there were gold Read More

Origami Zodiac - Hermit Werds - black and bronze nail art with stamped baby boomer french tips and origami zodiac animals for the year of the rooster, dog, pig, rat, and ox

Hello Again & Origami Zodiac

February 3, 2019 Lisa 0

Wow… So I hadn’t quite meant to take such a giant step back from social media, the blog, and nail art. I rearranged my workroom and found I could fit in my grandfather’s old unfolding table that is so perfect for crafts and cutting out patterns and, well, I got Read More

Holiday Glitz

December 2, 2018 Lisa 0

I’ve seen a few red/green thermal polishes come out this year, but I think Shinespark Polish came out with the first one for Christmas when she released it in 2017. I couldn’t resist buying it and I’m so glad I did. This is the first design I painted with it, Read More

Witch of Slaughter

October 31, 2018 Lisa 0

I am ending the month of October on a rather bloody note. Or am I? There’s still daylight left, so I could potentially paint one last design. heh I’ve returned to my Witches of S series with the Witch of Slaughter. You may notice she doesn’t have any blood on Read More

Call me a dork if you will, but I have so many Things I want to paint for Halloween. Oh, the lists I have made trying to plan things out so I wouldn’t miss a big want-to-do for a small one. I have lists for polishes, stamping plates, and color Read More
