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

One-line Spring Flowers

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.

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

A raspberry and electric green nail art painted to represent a cocktail called Zombie Panda (by Micah Melton) with cute drink and panda stamping decals.

This nail art was brought to you by earlier delusions about how much nail art I could paint this month. Hence I combined a panda prompt from a challenge I’m definitely not completing with a prompt from the glamnailschallenge for cocktail. It was this or do something with shrimp because Read More

A green gold circuit board mani with "PUNK" French tips and a cyberpunk mohawked lady on the thumb.

Once again I get to crow that I’m finally getting to a design that I’d planned out ages ago. It is brought to you by four letter words that work really admirably across one hand. (In this case “punk”.) My excuse came from the #WhenColoursCollide challenge that had a green, Read More

A pink to gold multichrome with holographic nail art featuring Nintendo's Mario dodging multiple Bullet Bills.

Mario vs Bullet Bills

So January’s Polished Gamers Box was Mario-themed and they started back up the tradition of having a group collage due by the end of the next month (because by then most people have gotten their loot). No one has put the collage together yet. But I’m to the point where Read More

Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

A red to black gradient nail art with swirls of magic and a wicked, sexy witch casting a summoning stamped on top plus a haunted house.

Witch of Summoning

Today’s look was brought to you by learning to stop before you ruin something. See, my initial plan was to have the vertical gradient and then stamp a whole landscape of haunted houses as a kind of French tip that then fades into the black. But then I thought I Read More

Two Year of the Ox nail art designs: one in classical red and gold (and black) and the other in the year's lucky colors: yellow, blue, and purple.

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

A tan nail art with birch tree trunk stamping images highlighted with white nail polish and frolicking birds.

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

A Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

February 3, 2021 Lisa 2

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More
