Sagittarius nail art featuring the archer centaur and Sagittarius symbol on a burgundy magnetically pink polish with flakies and holo glitter.

Zodiac Collection: Sagittarius

December 7, 2022 Lisa 0

Today I have another late mani, this time for Sagittarius (though technically we haven’t moved to another zodiac sign yet…). I’m really loving how today’s look ended up. This kind of finish with a magnetic polish really works for me. I was a little stuck about what to stamp outside 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

December 3, 2022 Lisa 0

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

Cute owls dressed up in costumes--ghost/vampire/mummy/witch/skeleton--stamped onto a white/black thermal polish with Halloween glitter.

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

Zombie nail art on a grey crelly with stamping images of academic stuff, "Brain Food" w/brain, a zombie + a school being attacked by zombies.

Brain Food

October 29, 2022 Lisa 0

Some of the nail art I finished in September didn’t get posted before I had to take a break to focus on day to day life stuff. Today I’m sharing one of them: a nail art meant somewhat to be back to school themed, but also Halloween since it was Read More

A deep red and prugly green stiletto mani with the Disney-esque evil queen from Snow White and her poison apple. Eat me!

Eat the Poison Apple

October 28, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look was inspired by the second baddest Disney queen: the evil queen. I’m not sure she even had a name, but I love her nose when she goes full crone. I don’t think I’m alone in loving her elderly form so much more than the haughty younger one. She’s Read More

Libra nail art with a yellow sky and stamping decals of abstract faces, a lady with her head in the clouds, more clouds, and Libra scales.

Zodiac Collection: Libra

It’s been a month since my last post. I kept thinking I should write an I’m still alive post that I could delete later or even a compilation of previous Halloween mani favs with a note and it just didn’t happen. Instead, here I am sharing my nail art for Read More

Talk Like a Pirate Day nail art with cute pirate stamping images (captain, ship, parrot) on a teal to purple multichrome polish.

Ship Ahoy!

September 19, 2022 Lisa 2

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Or at least the barest edge of the end of it depending on your time zone. I’ve been keeping busy with IRL things like finishing painting the deck with my husband. It rained a few days ago and the water beading up it made Read More

Shark nail art with cute sharks who have taken bites out of hearts as stamping decals on a glitzy blue base polish.

Shark Love

August 5, 2022 Lisa 0

I am definitely the part of the population that loves Shark Week because I love sharks. Who wouldn’t love an animal that bites things because one of its major environmental inputs is its mouth. When can I get that excuse? But Shark Week is in July and I totally missed Read More

Summer nail art with melting popsicles and ice cream stamping decals on top of a crelly that resembles chocolate mint ice cream.

You Make Me Melt

August 2, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s not terribly original, but I totally had to paint ice cream nails when given a “melt” prompt. Luckily no one else chose to use the Creative Shop-120 stamping plate with the perfect phrase “You make me melt”, which made for an easy themed nail art. My greatest hardship was Read More

A sandy, beachy nail art with a sign pointing towards the beach, flip flops, and a bag of beach-going essentials plus beach-y words.

Beach, Please!

July 21, 2022 Lisa 0

Summer is the season for beach-y nail art and that generally means I go tropical. Which is funny because the beaches I’ve visited lately are rather cold and dramatic instead of warm and sunny. And instead of walking around in flip flops and laying on a towel with a thick Read More
