Bunnies in Black

July 20, 2018 Lisa 0

Sometimes you just get a funny idea in your head and you have to do it. I had a stamping plate with these weird suited bunnies and they gave me a brain worm that I just couldn’t shake. I had to riff off of Men in Black with them. I’m Read More

Love is Love

June 22, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s Pride Month and I’ve been itching to paint some LGBTQ positive nail art since it started, but the challenges I was following really didn’t fit with that until now. #26GreatNailArtIdeas‘ prompt of graffiti fits well with a rainbow theme so I grabbed Born Pretty Valentine’s Day BP-L005 and got Read More

Flowers for Molly

Molly is the indie maker behind Shinespark Polish. We were not close friends, but I had purchased from her several times and we had interacted on Instagram. I admired her so much and love her polishes. I heard about her murder two days after it occurred. She was going to Read More

I normally don’t have much to do with Valentine’s Day beyond chocolate eating but #NailCraziesUnite’s prompt was Anti-Valentine Hearts and so that’s what we’re doing! Anti-Valentine hearts are an amusing response to the holiday. I think Singles’ Day is a better one (the sales are about more than just delicious Read More

Part of me wanted to go super elaborate for this one, but I made myself take a step back and simplify because I did not have the time. So I went with lots of pink with silver snowflakes and red stamping for my decals. Given the theme, I picked images Read More

October 27, 2017 Lisa 1

This black cat nail art is for #26GreatNailArtIdeas Halloween w/Negative Space. I was going to do something more complex, but then I asked myself, “Why am I making my life hard right now?” And the answer is that sometimes I think if I don’t struggle I’m not doing a good Read More

Cat Memories

September 23, 2017 Lisa 2

Last Wednesday, my cat swarmed up over the fence after another cat and went missing for several days. I spent a lot of time knocking on doors, hanging up signs, and wandering around the neighborhood at 2 AM in the morning. After five days of wondering she finally showed up Read More

Retro Cherry

August 30, 2017 Lisa 0

Whenever I think of retro patterns cherries are one of the first things I think of. Red is the favorite retro lip color. And I’d always gotten the impression that soda fountains were a major hang out spot for a pretty big length of time in there as well. Of Read More
