Hot Chocolate Weather

January 26, 2024 Lisa 0

It’s already so warm where I live that I’m not sure a hot chocolate mani really fits, but a prompt is a prompt and I already had this painted. Two days ago I noticed the first snow drop bud in my yard. I went to take a picture of it Read More

A pink magnetic Christmas pun nail art with cute mistle-toads instead of just mistletoe and a couple kissing beneath the toad anyway.

Under the Mistle Toad

Today’s second look is a marriage between two Instagram prompts and my ongoing interest in using all the puns on Moyou London’s Noel Collection-10 stamping plate. Picking my pun was easy. One of the prompts was mistletoe which perfectly matched the Mistle Toad. The next prompt was ornament. The toad Read More

A black magnetic Scorpio nail art with stamping images of desert things, a scorpion lady, and beautiful scorpions in coppers and oranges.

Zodiac Collection: Scorpio!

Hopefully this is a sign of how peaceful the next few months will be. That’s right, I’m posting the lastest zodiac mani soon after the date where you can be born a Scorpio. Happy birthday to a wonderful group of people! I hope you like the design I painted for Read More

Singing in the Rain

I’ve had this nail art sketched out in my nail art ideas booklet for a looong time and I was super happy to finally have an excuse to paint it for @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘U’ is for Umbrella prompt. Pretty much combining happy wild songbirds with my favorite weather (rain) and umbrellas! Read More

French nail art on a flakie-filled cream crelly with stamping decals of delicious French food like wine, croissants, and french press coffee.

Simple French Cuisine

August 8, 2021 Lisa 2

It’s funny how the French are associated with cooking that takes many specialized cooking utensils and techniques and also the simplest and most delicious of foods. (Mind you, I am aware that making your own croissants would take a lot of work. So many layers…) I definitely can recommend all Read More

Bamboo Forest Retreat

August 4, 2021 Lisa 1

I’m trying a new (to me) challenge this month because I liked its prompts the best: #Sammys2021Challenge run by @my_nail_envy. Its first prompt was Forest and I really wanted to use this image of a tiny lady in a kimono holding a giant lotus leaf and framed by some bamboo. Read More

Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

Three Sweet Manis

March 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

Yellow and orange nail art with the demon Luci (cat) from Netflix's Disenchanted freehand painted on top of flames.

Luci the “Cat”

January 19, 2021 Lisa 2

My husband and I have been watching Netflix’s animated tv show Disenchanted since it started. It was created by the same person that started The Simpsons and Futurama–both shows that I watched in their early seasons. So if your sense of humor loved either of them, you’ll also love Disenchanted. Read More
