Zodiac Collection: Sagittarius

Today I have another late mani, this time for Sagittarius (though technically we haven’t moved to another zodiac sign yet…). I’m really loving how today’s look ended up. This kind of finish with a magnetic polish really works for me. I was a little stuck about what to stamp outside Read More

Dinosaur metaphor nail art about the stresses and pressures of Christmas shopping as the dinos battle it out on red backgrounds.

Shop to Win

Black Friday has changed a lot over the years, but generally speaking I think it’s gotten less deadly but ultimately not more relaxed. The stress of it has just stretched out across the whole month. A kind of long wander through sales with a few extra good prices tucked in Read More

A camping nail art with stamping images that progress through leaving the city to go camping in the mountains on a shifty olive base polish.

It always make me laugh how every summer we all go tropical and ocean-y instead of camping, which is far closer to what most of us end up doing in the summer. That and picnics. 🤤 So I was quite happy to paint a camping nail art and actually had Read More

Last night was the Buck Moon and it was so big and beautiful in the sky. We left the theater after watching Thor: Love and Thunder and were about to go home with a box of yummy cookies in hand when the kids pointed out that you could see Mount Read More

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

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

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

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.

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.

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
