A pearly grey nail art with a soft swirl of green and stamping image of a dandelion puff on top. Done on false nails.

Dandelion Dreaming

February 25, 2021 Lisa 1

I can’t think of a better nail art design to follow a dark and magical mani than this simple almost watercolor-esque floral mani. 🤣🤣🤣 Probably having my floral as a dandelion puff is really the icing on that cake of subject change. But, I love variety so I’m just living Read More

A dark burgundy to nude with glitter baby boomer French tip with silly hungry cat stamping decals on top and "Love at first bite" nail art.

Love at First Bite

February 15, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look is another design I’ve been wanting to paint for a few years. It’s also one I wanted to post around Valentine’s Day as both an alternate perspective of the day and an anti-Valentine mani. And if you follow me on Instagram, I actually did manage to post it Read More

A tan nail art with birch tree trunk stamping images highlighted with white nail polish and frolicking birds.

Birds in the Birch Trees

I was all set to paint dinosaur nail art for today’s look but I ended up deciding on a simpler subject matter for today. Don’t worry, though, dinosaur nails will happen soon. I keep buying stamping plates with them! But somehow today’s color–Pantone Sheepskin–felt like more of a tree nail Read More

A dark blue nail art with metallic blue decorative swirls stamped in the background and little white cat silhouette stamping decals.

Cats in Blue and White

I enjoy a color challenge, which is why I follow the pantone challenge so much, but there’s another nail art challenge with color prompts that I used to follow on FB called When Colours Collide. I think the last time I joined in there was August 2018. The major difference Read More

Fruit-themed bright orange nail art with orange slice and orange stamping decals on top.

The Orange-iest

January 22, 2021 Lisa 2

The only way this nail art could get orange-er is if I’d used an orange stamping polish instead of black. Kinda wish I had, but avoiding black stamping is my personal and eternal challenge so I can’t say it really needed it. 😆 I actually painted this one clear back Read More

A dusty dark blue mani with transparent jellyfish stamping decals swimming in the sea with little bubbles and flashes of holo.

Sea of Jellyfish

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

A champagne to rose to purple thermal polish combined with stamping decals of mugs, tea pots, and Alice falling endlessly.

Happy International Tea Day!

December 15, 2020 Lisa 4

For all the coffee nail art I have painted over the years, I have to admit I’ve been drinking more tea than coffee lately. It started with a strong tea drinking culture at work and then I started trying to cut down on caffeine later in the day. Now I Read More

A soft blue, purple, and pink nail art of cute bunnies living in the clouds with an aqua glow in the dark special effect.

Sky Bunnies, Cloud Meadows

December 1, 2020 Lisa 2

Happy December! I’m back with some glow in the dark goodness! A great way to start any month on the blog. I posted this a little early on Instagram to finish out @liganailista’s monthly challenge with a cloud prompt. And Beauty BigBang’s XL-082 stamping plate had the perfect scene with Read More
