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.

Llama Llovin’

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.

Hot Chocolate Weather

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

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.

Under the Mistle Toad

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

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

Sweater nail art with cute sweater patterns in red and green on a sweet glittery white crelly and a few sweater decals too. Almost Christmas.

I know I just said the posts might get scarce this month, but I already had this basically done except for writing the blog post itself. And I actually have two more posts after that before I have to put painting effort forth or I have nothing to blog about. Read More

Spooky gnome nail art with spider webs and three gnomes dressed as a bat-loving witch, a ghost, and a cobweb covered spider lover.

Halloween Gnomes

October 22, 2023 Lisa 0

Gnomes have become the thing. I’d say their popularity has really grown the past two years and they’ve taken the place of the unicorn plates everyone had to make. Only for some reason gnomes fit in everywhere so you can get a regular plate with a few gnomes thrown in Read More

A trick or treat nail art with cute candy corns dressed up as bats, devils, witches, mummies and more with Halloween candy on the side.

Trick or Treat

Woof! I had a few days there where I just couldn’t get myself to paint and then I got cold-sick for the first time in many years. Blech! But I’m mostly better and back with a cute candy corn nail design because candy corns dressed up to go trick or Read More
