Elegant bamboo forest nail art with stamping images of a lady wearing a kimono and a house built deep in a bamboo forest.

Bamboo Forest Retreat

August 4, 2021 Lisa 1

I’m trying a new (to me) challenge this month because I liked its prompts the best: #Sammys2021Challenge run by @my_nail_envy. Its first prompt was Forest and I really wanted to use this image of a tiny lady in a kimono holding a giant lotus leaf and framed by some bamboo. 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

Nautical nail art in pink, black, and silver with lots of anchor stamping decals and a kiss of holographic nail polish.

Anchors Away

July 5, 2021 Lisa 2

Todays look is brought to you by prompts and whatever I have in my collection that fit them. 😆 My colors were pink, black, and silver from @WhenColoursCollide and my subject was Anchors from @GlamNailsChallenge. So that made this a nautical nail art from the start. When Colours Collide There Read More

A yellow to bright green thermal polish with sweetly flattering orange and lemon stamping decals on top and more happy food on the thumb.

Citrus Kindness

June 25, 2021 Lisa 2

Okay, the title to this mani isn’t all that creative, but the main stamping images came from the Kindness is Magic stamping plate from The Stamping Shop Collab, so I just went with it. And since my theme was already going to be citrus, I decided to go with citrus-y Read More

A stained glass butterfly nail art with an iridescent flakie topper and watercolor paint to fill in the butterfly decals.

Stained Glass Butterflies

June 17, 2021 Lisa 2

Today is this blog’s fifth anniversary. So it’s kind of ironic that I have been very distracted from it and don’t feel much like posting currently. Some of it is that I bought some roller skates and not only busted off a nail already (luckily on my cindy hand) but Read More

A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

An ultra multichrome base polish from turquoise to purple to orange with ocean floor and swimming mermaids stamped on in black.

Multichrome Mermaids

I like my rainbows so you know I love multichrome polishes, but not all of them are created equal. Some are more rainbow-y than others and the less subtle they are the more I like them. I painted my cindy hand with Quixotic Polish’s “Flying Past the Stars” during the Read More

A neon yellow crelly and black texture polish manicure with negative space black dandelions stamped on top. Glows in the dark.

Dandelion Glow

While I couldn’t complete all the prompts for @glamnailschallenge, I did want to knock out the last one: dandelions. See, Beauty BigBang has a great stamping plate with an entire row of full-nail negative space images and one of them is dandelions. I thought this would pair perfectly with the 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

A gorgeous multichrome indie magnetic polish with abstract donut shapes and very 80s patterns stamped on top.

80s Donut

March 30, 2021 Lisa 3

I really should be going to bed right now, so this post is going to be short and sweet except for the large amounts of photos because omg this magnetic polish is so very pretty. And luckily pretty easy to capture, unlike my Spirit of the Wolf mani. I need Read More
