Happy International Tea Day! A soft tea nail art design in creamy colors featuring stamping decals of cute cups and different kinds of tea.

A Quiet Cuppa

December 15, 2022 Lisa 0

I’ve painted so much coffee nail art over the years, but tea has been sorely neglected by comparison. Much like what’s in my cupboard! I moved and then all my habits of drinking tea went out the window because it was always easier to make the coffee. I’ve started drinking Read More

Happy Thanksgiving nails with turkey and turkey feather stamping decals on a yellow/orange/brown tri-thermal gel with a flakie topper on top.

Turkeys Wanted

November 24, 2022 Lisa 0

Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s look has taken a while to reach you. I painted it clear back in 2020 after Thanksgiving. So I told myself I would share it next year and never even got around to editing to photos. To continue the tradition, I meant to post it a day 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

A devilish junk food nail art with stamping decals of a devil donut and "eye" scream, which were also stamped onto the yellow background.

Devil Donuts and “Eye” Scream

June 28, 2022 Lisa 0

I’m still trying to catch up on the few AZ Challenge prompts that I missed (especially since this is the last round). Today I’m covering ‘J’ is for Junk Food, but I also painted for ‘L’ is for Lucifer just in case I didn’t get to that one. However, I Read More

A pale mint green treasure map nail art with reverse stamped islands, monsters, and ships and the final palm tree with 'x' marks the spot.

Treasure Map

April 18, 2022 Lisa 0

Possibly today’s nail art look will make up for missing Talk Like a Pirate Day last year. It’s always a little frustrating when I miss a holiday that I want to cover, but selling my home so we could move took precedence. This year, though, you should be able to Read More

A soft, golden brown art nouveau nail art with a beautiful art nouveau woman, florals, and accompanying sparkly accent nails.

Magnetic Art Nouveau

January 31, 2022 Lisa 0

I have a joined an ongoing collab run by the amazing @denise.nailed.it that tries to use their ManixMe box in the month that it arrives. I need this because I’ve been sucking really badly at getting to my boxes and FOMO means I can’t not get the ones I’m interested 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

Brown Stamping Polish Comparison

Dark brown stamping polish comparison

December 13, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s time to compare those browns! For reference, colors are described as warm or cool depending on if they are yellow-leaning (warm) or blue-leaning (cool) or in the case of these browns orange and purple. Also, I apologize for the lint. I am lint woman and I can only be 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
