Halloween Owls

November 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Once upon a time I told myself a story about how I was going to find time to release two blog posts on Halloween. And lo! The gamble of saving the most Halloween nail art to post last did not pan out. That’s fine because we are Halloween all year Read More

A Halloween cat nail art with sweet black kitties climbing into things on a purple jelly polish filled with black and holographic glitter.

Show Me Your Kitties

I think there was a cat butt collab on Instagram and if so I definitely missed it, but I’m still happy to bring you a cat butt mani. Featuring the butts of black cats because today is National Black Cat Day. My personal black cat™ will be getting some extra Read More

Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

Yin Yang Koi

June 24, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

A glittery silver base polish with an alcohol ink rainbow and reverse stamping decals of cute frolicking alicorns and unicorns. Glow in the dark.

Stay Magical, Unicorn!

It’s June and I’m finally getting myself together to paint a unicorn mani for Junicorn. Naturally I had to drag some glow in the dark stuff into the party. And it is a party because this is my mani for the Saucy Collab and the prompt was Juneicorn Jubilee. I Read More

A soft orange smoosh mani with cute bus and camera stamping decals with plants growing out of and around them.

Bus Ride to Somewhere

March 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought about by more Instagram prompts: smoosh marble and bus. I knew I had a beautiful image of a bus on KADS’ Flower-16 so I decided to go with that. I followed it up with talk of travel because it really felt like a school trip kind 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

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

Pool party nail art using mint polish and a soft beige glitter crelly with stamping decals of anthropomorphic animals swimming and dj-ing.

Pool Party

July 11, 2021 Lisa 1

The prompt was pool party, a very summer-y topic, and I had this cool stamping plate with little animals playing sports. It’s nice when you get to be utterly literal except I realize now looking at this nail art that it’s an introvert’s pool party. Everyone is all alone on Read More

Zombie nail art with cartoon zombie head stamping decals and on a mustard/orange/brown tri-thermal base with orange and gold glitters.

Zombie Days

April 28, 2021 Lisa 0

What is it like to be a zombie? I really like to get in their (fictional) heads and find out. Like…are they in a kind of fugue state until something triggers them into eat mode? Is there an end game? Most zombie-related entertainment seems to focus on the pure monster Read More

Light purple and yellow nail art with swirls of darker polish highlighting freeline spring images of a bunny and flowers.

One-line Spring Flowers

April 2, 2021 Lisa 1

I had Easter in mind as I put together today’s nail art look. Since it was for a color challenge, the sky was the limit subject wise, so I went with flowers and a bunny from a stamping plate full of one-line images. If you don’t know what one-line is, Read More
