(Halloween) Cinco de Mayo

April 27, 2022 Lisa 0

The @halloweenForeverCollab strikes again with an awesome prompt to bring Halloween to every month. and this time we painted for Cinco de Mayo. It was a bit of a challenge to find something in my collection that worked and wasn’t straight sugar skulls, but I think this works. And I’m Read More

Crazy Plant Lady

April 21, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s amazing this first year in the new house, watching the efforts of the gardeners before me continue to unfold. There are some plants I am super excited about, a lot of bushes that need to be trimmed back when they’re done blooming, and so much more planning and learning 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

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 holiday mashup nail design for Halloween and Easter with a pink/yellow thermal polish and zombie/monster rabbit stamping decals.

Easter-ween

April 8, 2022 Lisa 0

I’ve really been enjoying the Instagram prompts from @inkednailzartchallenge. They’re just that little bit edgy and alt-culture for me. I hit a few prompts in March and I’m going to get them all this month if I can. They started off April with a bang by coming up with an Read More

A soft orange smoosh mani with cute bus and camera stamping decals with plants growing out of and around them.

Bus Ride to Somewhere

March 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought about by more Instagram prompts: smoosh marble and bus. I knew I had a beautiful image of a bus on KADS’ Flower-16 so I decided to go with that. I followed it up with talk of travel because it really felt like a school trip kind Read More

Soft penguin nail art with metallic black stamping images of fanciful penguins and grey-blue geometric ice patterns.

Enchanted Penguins

February 18, 2022 Lisa 1

Everything around me is saying spring (except, perhaps, the temperature of the room I’m in), but it technically is still winter so: penguins! And that makes me happy because I haven’t painted much in the way of penguin nail art and I have…so, so many stamping plates… #AZNailArtChallenge – ‘P’ Read More

A coppery-y floral mani with a magnetic copper base and simple stamping images of a floral field and tiny baby blue and white butterflies.

Magnetically Donna

February 6, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look was inspired by one of my Instagram friends who passed away on January 20th. Donna was a wonderful, sweet friend and I am among many who will miss her. But also, happily, among many who will remember her. Which is the gift that social media has given us: Read More

Thorny teal rose vines against a glow in the dark sparkly teal base with fairy and centipede reverse stamping decals.

Fairies and Centipedes

May 7, 2021 Lisa 1

Whyyyy do I always post my @halloweenforevercollab nail art so long after the collage is out? April’s theme was dark fairies, which is actually kind of hard to do because all the fairy stamping plates are full of cute and sweet little fairies so people had to get creative. I Read More

Zombie nail art with cartoon zombie head stamping decals and on a mustard/orange/brown tri-thermal base with orange and gold glitters.

Zombie Days

April 28, 2021 Lisa 0

What is it like to be a zombie? I really like to get in their (fictional) heads and find out. Like…are they in a kind of fugue state until something triggers them into eat mode? Is there an end game? Most zombie-related entertainment seems to focus on the pure monster Read More

A mauve and gold magnetic nail art with tarot cards, the five of pentacles, all-seeing eye, and a fortune teller and her crystal ball.

Witch of Seers

April 3, 2021 Lisa 1

I own two different–and before this mani unused–tarot stamping plates. So when the prompt of Creepy Circus came up, I had a big list of things that I could have painted, but a fortuneteller that predicts terrible futures for their customers was the perfect topic. Plus it let me paint Read More
