Puppy Love

February 18, 2024 Lisa 2

Valentine’s Day is over but the Instagram prompts keep coming. I don’t mind. I still have plenty of unused things that fit the theme. One thing about working with false nails all the time. I actually had this set painted for years. I can’t even remember what my original plan Read More

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I hope you’ve found some way to make it special for you regardless of your romantic status. Honestly, I consider this a chocolate holiday more than anything else. And if you have to buy your own chocolate, remember that doing so means you are getting exactly Read More

Strawberry Moon

Well…between the chaos of visitors and breaking nails I managed to miss the collab deadline for this nail art, but I’m still posting on the day of the Strawberry Moon! This nail art turned out slightly plainer that my original sketch, but I still have lots of strawberries, a full Read More

Anne of Green Gables

April 4, 2022 Lisa 1

March 2022’s ManixMe box was all about classic literature and reading. They did a bunch of little sets for each book they decided to feature. I decided to base my nail art on Anne of Green Gables. I do remember enjoying reading the series in elementary school, though it was Read More

Olive Spring

February 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I have been sitting on this nail art for over a year just waiting for the perfect time to post it. And as we’re just heading into spring nail art season (which can be quite different from what’s going on outside depending on where you live), now felt good. It Read More

Russian Nesting Dolls

December 4, 2020 Lisa 2

It was really convenient of Ine to pick accompanying colors in the #pantone2020winterchallenge that worked perfectly for painting the ‘R’ is for Russian Dolls prompt for #aznailartchallenge. With the power of two challenges behind me, things came together pretty quickly. #pantone2020winterchallenge Honestly I felt seriously spoiled when I saw the Read More

Blue Bird of Autumn – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 24, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I painted this in September, but it really felt more fall-like than summer so I have held it back until now. Unfortunately, that meant holding back my review for Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” as well, but… Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” …it ended up looking so similar to their “Orange Autumn” Read More

I’m not terribly great at fluid art just yet, but the colors blending together on today’s nail art just make my heart so happy. Also the witch falling off her broom is pretty hilarious. Ah, the joy of the suffering of others. 🤣 Products Used Fluid Art Polishes: Celestial Cosmetics’ Read More

Have a Crelly Christmas

December 21, 2018 Lisa 0

Some people may prefer that the term never be shortened but, as a nail artist, it just feels like it would be easier to fit the whole thing on my nails. 🤣🤣🤣 So today we have Merry Xmas instead of Merry Christmas and I do still feel slightly guilty because Read More

Paisley Whale

August 2, 2018 Lisa 0

Today I bring you paisley and whales! Why? Well, #NailsWithIgFriends’ July host, Caroline (@gidwaney), picked Paisley and I just randomly added whales because it felt like a good idea at the time. This is the second time I’ve combined a large oceanic animal with a common fabric type/pattern in less Read More
