Love in the Language of Birds

I…wasn’t quite meaning to create such a neon mani, but I was trying to match the colors to my glitter topper and that meant a lot of color because I didn’t want to paint a white base. #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt for this week is Love, but No Pink or Red. I Read More

This as my first attempt at a base for my recreation of Becky (@nail.dazed)’s nail art for her birthday. The theme was dark blue/purple/red and recreating. The mani I was recreating had a light background so I thought I would do that and make my decals really dark and that Read More

I’ve been really bad about getting anything done lately. I did manage to cut my own hair for the first time last night. I think I need to take off a bit more on the top, but so far it’s actually one of the better haircuts I’ve had. Mind you, Read More

Is it lazy to title your mani after one of the polishes you used in it if it fits? I mean, Bee’s Knees Lacquer’s “I See Plaid People” is the main polish for this mani and the prompt from #NailArtChallengeJan is plaid. Well, I guess it’s a lazy day either Read More

One of the great joys of the holiday season is the arrival of peppermint coffee creamers in the grocery store. Such an effortless way to make coffee magical in the morning. I like pumpkin spice coffee just fine, but I love peppermint coffee even more. Yum, yum, yum. So when Read More

Last month I was asked to host the next #nailswithigfriends. It was my first time hosting a collab and I think it went fairly well. I picked Time Period as the theme and I loved the huge variety of interpretations that all the ladies turned in, but I think next Read More

I’m trying to do more nail art that I just want to do and fewer challenges and what better way to manage that than to dedicate an entire manicure to beets! I love canned pickled beets. I eat them on their own and with salad, all while being ultra paranoid Read More

I started looking at buying from KBShimmer when they collaborated with one of the YouTubers I regularly watch. MissHollyBerries not only did a swatch and review of their Fall Collaboration Collection but had made a contribution of her own with #squadghouls. I knew I was getting it. It is hands-down Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – Christmas Stamping Plates

December 5, 2017 Lisa 0

Press Sample I apparently needed a mental break on top of spending the weekend with family. Well, today I am back with four different nail designs as I explore the possibilities and quality of the stamping plates Beauty BigBang sent to me (I will do a review for the sequins Read More

#GlamNailsChallenge and #FireDazedChallenge’s last prompt of the month is First Frost. Three designs immediately came to mind: blue/white/silver snowflake mani (a classic design that I painted on my mom’s nails last year), a freehand fall landscape with a teeny bit of snow, and a more abstract design with fall and Read More
