Happy Sushi Day

Its International Sushi Day and this time I’m not missing out on posting this sushi nail art. I actually celebrated a day early with sushi for my husband and I while the kids nommed on McDonalds (their pick). Ah, well, not everyone loves sushi. We’ve found a great place that’s Read More

Flower Moon

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

Taurus nail art with a blue/green magnetic polish and stamping decals of oxen, fields, grain, and a Taurus symbol.

We’re back for another eastern zodiac nail art. So for a starter, happy birthday to all the Taurus out there! Now let’s break out the false nails. Since Taurus is an Earth element and the ox is often associated with farming, I decided to paint that for my mani. I Read More

Back to school nail art with chalkboard stamping images about education topics (esp science) on a charcoal rainbow flakie background.

I typically don’t paint back to school nail art or anything of the sort because I’m out of school and I’m not even remotely in charge of my stepchildrens’ schooling. Plus by August my old office was so hot. It was really hard to get much nail art done. So Read More

A dark blue steampunk nail art with a Westernpunk theme of sheriffs and horses stamped with an old gold stamping polish.

Westernpunk

March 8, 2022 Lisa 0

I have waited two years to post these. Why? It just never seemed to be the right time and it just kept on being so until “steampunk” popped up as a prompt in Instagram. Of course. And somehow the timing seems even more right because Cowgirl Style posted recently. I Read More

Quartz crystal nail art in soft corals and whites with a reverse stamping images of quartz crystals with purple spring flowers.

Quartz

I meant to get this written up sooner, but I made the mistake of wandering outside to weed for a bit. The new yard is much bigger than the old and the abundance of rain has kept certain plants growing all winter. In other words, I was clawing things out Read More

Baby blue Pisces nail art with two large purple and silver fish stamping decals marked with the Pisces sign and wave french tip stampings.

Zodiac Collection: Pisces

Late post today because I adult-ed and did some yardwork. I’m in the process of ripping out some of the invasive (but lovely) ivy growing in my yard. It’s super fun because I’m in terrible shape right now. 😆Today is the start of the Pisces astrological sign and so the Read More

A Valentine's Day nail art with rosegold lace stamping on a pink thermal jelly with reverse stamping decals saying "Call me! XOXO".

Call Me! XOXO

February 6, 2022 Lisa 0

And we’re back to the holidays with Valentine’s Day coming up. This one was a simple lace + something fun mani. I paired a “Call me! XOXO” stamping decal with more “XOXO”s and a mobile phone. Really in many ways my favorite part was the lace stamping image paired with Read More

Dramatic purple rose nail art with a magnetic purple polish peeking out from negative space rose patterns and token butterflies.

Magnetic Purple Roses

February 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought to you by the color purple, the subject roses, and the strange feeling that we kiiiinda posted something similar not so long ago. However, the use (finally) of a purple magnetic polish I’ve had for years hopefully brings enough of a different element to this so Read More

A witchy Valentine's Day nail art w/stamping decals of a cute witch brewing up a love potion with lots of hearts on a lilac flakie polish.

Hocus Pocus

January 25, 2022 Lisa 0

Once upon a time I painted a love potion-esque nail art. It was pre-blog and there was pink. I can even wave the stamping plate I used uselessly in the air. You can’t see it because this isn’t a video, but all the parts are there. Anyway, I sadly cannot Read More
