It’s time to play catchup! I’ve participated in three different collabs on Instagram and posted nothing. To be fair, a family member was having heart surgery so my brain could straddle work and that before it was Done. Surgery went well, though, so let’s get into my first fall look Read More

Summer nail art with melting popsicles and ice cream stamping decals on top of a crelly that resembles chocolate mint ice cream.

You Make Me Melt

August 2, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s not terribly original, but I totally had to paint ice cream nails when given a “melt” prompt. Luckily no one else chose to use the Creative Shop-120 stamping plate with the perfect phrase “You make me melt”, which made for an easy themed nail art. My greatest hardship was Read More

It’s been a while since I painted a new mani for my Witches of ‘S’ series, but it feels like a good time to paint nail art of women with power(s). Today’s design is also my make-up mani for ‘K’ is for Kingdom. Because of this, I decided to highlight Read More

I’m still trying to catch up on the few AZ Challenge prompts that I missed (especially since this is the last round). Today I’m covering ‘J’ is for Junk Food, but I also painted for ‘L’ is for Lucifer just in case I didn’t get to that one. However, I Read More

I’m back with another mani where I try to use the items that came in the month’s Mani x Me box. This time it worked out for me and I used everything in the box but the extra item. (A cuticle tape used to mask the area around your nail. Read More

Simple French Cuisine

August 8, 2021 Lisa 2

It’s funny how the French are associated with cooking that takes many specialized cooking utensils and techniques and also the simplest and most delicious of foods. (Mind you, I am aware that making your own croissants would take a lot of work. So many layers…) I definitely can recommend all Read More

I’d intended to paint more mermaid nail art this weekend, but relaxation got in the way. 🤣 Instead, the first thing I managed to paint this week is sunflowers. I feel like I’m already channeling fall with this sunflower nail art, but the time for sharing it is now. It Read More

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

Snow-deer Reindeer

Today’s theme is cute and snowflake-y, but the prompt that inspired this design was #NailsWithIG Friend’s Winter Animal. Now Maniology’s BM-S156 is a stamping plate with nothing but winter animals, so I was definitely using it. And I knooow that Christmas is over, but I could not resist this cute Read More
