This is the first post on the blog that is not safe for work and honestly it’s a little garbage that it’s getting stuck in that category but apparently women’s nipples are athema so here we are. I want to be clear: this nail art is meant to be silly. Read More

Love bird nail art with tons of newsprint, hearts, "love" and two sweet blue birds in flight on a grey/blue or holographic blue background.

I really wasn’t sure if I would ever get around to using the Maximalist ManixMe plates that were in last year’s February box. They kinda fell under things that are useful, but aren’t particularly my style and so it’s a dice throw if I will think to use them. Luckily, Read More

Hot pink llama nail art with a crazy sweater print background and stamping decals of llamas kissing and llama puns for Valentine's Day.

I feel like we transitioned very suddenly from desaturated winter nail art to a neon punch in the face and I can’t apologize. It’s February and pink is in the air. Today’s look is all about loving llamas and llamas in love. I don’t know where my love of llamas Read More

A hot chocolate nail art with reverse stamping decals of marshmallows leaping into a hot chocolate mug and people holding warm mugs of cocoa.

It’s already so warm where I live that I’m not sure a hot chocolate mani really fits, but a prompt is a prompt and I already had this painted. Two days ago I noticed the first snow drop bud in my yard. I went to take a picture of it Read More

Monstrous family portrait nail art with a sweet green wallpaper background and reverse stamping decals of framed monster strewn with cobwebs.

Dead the Halls

Today’s look just didn’t want to come together in my head. The prompt was Dead the Halls and I had plenty of ideas that I could paint for it, but nothing really stood out to me. My sticking point was that I had this monster Christmas wreath image I wanted Read More

The great thing about not prioritizing getting all my finished Christmas nail art posted (many tasty things were made instead) is that now I’m ahead when it comes to next year. Woo! Today’s look is all sorts of Christmas, but I’ve decided to share it anyway since it’s part of Read More

A pink magnetic Christmas pun nail art with cute mistle-toads instead of just mistletoe and a couple kissing beneath the toad anyway.

Today’s second look is a marriage between two Instagram prompts and my ongoing interest in using all the puns on Moyou London’s Noel Collection-10 stamping plate. Picking my pun was easy. One of the prompts was mistletoe which perfectly matched the Mistle Toad. The next prompt was ornament. The toad Read More

I have been trying to finish this nail art for two years. I painted the base in December of 2021 and stamped the images. Then I painted a clear polish over them to turn them into decals and got distracted. Christmas was over. I’d only managed to fill in half Read More

A Thanksgiving nail art with dancing (or fighting) turkeys against a deep orange base with magenta shimmer and copper vegetable stamping.

Alas, the gap in nail art happened as predicted, but at least you had some warning this time, my poor reader! Today’s look was obviously in celebration of the United State’s Thanksgiving. Honestly, it’s a bit of a problematic holiday to me considering the story we tell about it compared Read More

A golden, orange, and brown magnetic mani of fall leaves gently blending into each other for a soft, abstract look. + one bastard stink bug.

I think I’m sorting out the frustrations keeping me from nail art-ing. It’s a combination of three things: First, having too many designs in a row that were struggle and the results were not true love. Output garbage = feel like garbage, I guess. Second, Google Chrome sucking and making Read More
