Talk Like a Pirate Day nail art with cute pirate stamping images (captain, ship, parrot) on a teal to purple multichrome polish.

Ship Ahoy!

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Or at least the barest edge of the end of it depending on your time zone. I’ve been keeping busy with IRL things like finishing painting the deck with my husband. It rained a few days ago and the water beading up it made Read More

Sturgeon Moon nail art with flying fish and a pink dolphin guided by a girl on a magical journey across a shifty pink and grey sky.

I think the moon manis have been my best project this year although it may be too soon to say since we’re only four prompts in. All I know is that I’ve been very happy with each one for different reasons. This one turned out super cute and I actually Read More

A sandy, beachy nail art with a sign pointing towards the beach, flip flops, and a bag of beach-going essentials plus beach-y words.

Beach, Please!

July 21, 2022 Lisa 0

Summer is the season for beach-y nail art and that generally means I go tropical. Which is funny because the beaches I’ve visited lately are rather cold and dramatic instead of warm and sunny. And instead of walking around in flip flops and laying on a towel with a thick Read More

Did you know there’s a different “moon” name for every full moon of the month? I kinda was aware that it was a thing (and I suspect every moon has multiple names since in June we can do mead, honey or strawberries), but I joined a moon collab where we Read More

Today we have an older look that I meant to share years ago. I always loved this image of an owl perched on a key with a heart lock and roses so I made it the center point of this mani. Then I just took those elements and found ways Read More

The past two days have sucked and I’m just glad they are over. I was able to finish this nail art in time to post on Instagram, but I couldn’t write the blog post until now. Even the nail art itself was rushed. I had to re-apply the glossy top Read More

A soft tan and caramel wood texture nail art with bright water decal bugs on top.

Bugs in the Woods

March 26, 2021 Lisa 2

Last year when my husband and I went camping, the wildlife that we saw the most were the flies. It certainly helped to keep us eating our food quick so most of them would go away again. Anyway, when the xyloid (relating to, consisting of, or resembling wood) prompt came Read More
