Fox Among Daisies

September 19, 2018 Lisa 0

I’m feeling like a complete-ist this month, but I knew I wasn’t going to be able to finish all of the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts and everything else I wanted to do unless I got a little bit creative. So I decided to combine daisies and foxes. It also conveniently meant that Read More

Dusty Rose & Green Wedding

Okay, not the most original title, but it’s exactly what this nail art is about! Also, I was going to say this is my first set of wedding nails, but I have a #NailFail with wedding birds that I’m just not going to link to… /whistle I do have, like…one(?) Read More

The best weather for using thermal polishes is rapidly fading away so I thought it was time to use Shinespark’s “Snowfall” before it became too difficult to photograph in all its glory. And with my luck the day I used it was rather warm and I still had to dip Read More

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I have two manicures to share with you today and there will be another post tonight. To start, I thought it would be nice to paint my poor cindy hand again. It still weirds me out that my nails are so short and I haven’t been taking care of them Read More

Can’t Hug Every Cat

September 22, 2017 Lisa 4

I was going to do a different song for #31DC2017 Inspired by a Song, but with my cat’s brief disappearance this month, I am a little obsessed with cats right now. Plus, I’ve loved this song ever since one of my co-workers added it to our group playlist. Can’t Hug Read More

August 18, 2017 Lisa 2

I really wanted to participate in this month’s #NailAddictsCollab. The theme was 2 Cwl 4 Skwl and since you’re supposed to include a bit about why you chose your subject, I really thought about what I wanted to say. At first I wanted to paint Bart Simpson nails because he Read More

Ride the Carousel

August 17, 2017 Lisa 2

I adore carousels. I still have a calendar that is over a decade old, but I won’t let go of it because it has carousel horses. I have a cross-stitch that is even older than the calendar that’s about halfway finished. I work on it every couple of years. Maybe Read More

August 17, 2017 Lisa 0

I haven’t been very good about keeping up with the alphabet challenge prompts on Instagram. This month it’s because I’m trying to keep up with too many challenges. By the time of this posting I have published 16 different manicures this month and I have 2 more that are going Read More
