Year of the Rabbit

January 21, 2023 Lisa 0

I’ve been painting nail art for Chinese New Year since 2018. It kinda terrifies me that I will have to paint for five more years before I can rest on my laurels and just repost the nail art I already did (optionally, mean 😜). In previous years I painted at Read More

Snowman nail art with cute snowmen playing around (like juggling) and preparing for a trip to Hawaii on a bold yellow glittery background.

Don’t Eat Yellow Snow(men)

Today’s look features snowmen on a yellow thermal background. So while I normally would have thought about adding banks of snow for them to exist in, I decided to just lean into the whole yellow thing with the post title. As happy as these snowmen look in their dubiously yellow Read More

Merry Christmas! Today’s gifted look is an older design. One that I painted several years ago on my natural nails. I’ve actually already destashed the black polish that you are seeing because I hated how gritty it looked in real life. (Also, Nee Jolie’s formula stinks really bad, so any Read More

A Halloween-esque Christmas mani w/spooky pastel stockings hung up against pine boughs + bone reindeer on a red to clear thermal w/flakies.

It’s Christmas Time

I have been posting a lot and kinda crashed a little, but there’s more Christmas nail art to post so it’s time to dust myself off and share today’s look: a nod to my favorite Christmas movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. I don’t have a Christmas tradition that I perform Read More

I knew that I wanted to paint this ornament nail art the minute I added Maniology’s “Sequins” to my shopping cart. There’s something about alternative holiday color schemes that just feels really special. I love both the white/gold and teal/magenta Christmas looks the best. Today’s look obviously focuses on teal/magenta Read More

Pokémon nail art with open pokeballs containing Charizard, Pikachu, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur and trainer Ash Ketchum himself on the thumb.

Gotta Catch ’em All

December 19, 2022 Lisa 0

We are catching ’em all by finally catching up. That’s right! I am now fully back on track just in time to collapse from exhaustion. Haha I watched the original Pokemon anime. I didn’t have a Gameboy or anything so I never got into the video game aspect of it, Read More

A high fashion runway nail art design featuring slick abstract runway models in dresses and an orange/purple thermal polish full of flakies.

Here’s something that should have been posted clear back at the beginning of November (but at least I only have one last catch-up post left!). Today’s look features an orange and purple thermal polish that I wasn’t sure I would love until I tried it and now we’re married. LOL Read More

Dinosaur metaphor nail art about the stresses and pressures of Christmas shopping as the dinos battle it out on red backgrounds.

Shop to Win

Black Friday has changed a lot over the years, but generally speaking I think it’s gotten less deadly but ultimately not more relaxed. The stress of it has just stretched out across the whole month. A kind of long wander through sales with a few extra good prices tucked in Read More

A Halloween mani based on the Children of the Corn book (and movie) by Stephen King with a gradient from black to red to orange.

I am sooo behind on posting. To the point where I rolled a dice to decide which nail art I would post first on my way to catching back up. The happy thing is that I still made all my group deadlines so I was able to be in the Read More

A periwinkle frost moon nail art for the full moon in November with a frosty ice castle stamped underneath.

I hope you were luckier than me and got to see the lunar eclipse if you wanted to. It was cloudy where I live, which is probably going to be the story of the rest of my life. I’ll take it for the rain. Still, it’s starting to get rather Read More
