Bridge to the Heavens

My nail art has been much simpler lately due to both time and challenge prompt constraints, but this design is as extra as I get using 9 polishes, 5 stamping plates, and 11 advanced stamping decals (for just one hand). You’ll understand why when you see the prompt image that Read More

As much as I enjoy being able to include the next prompt collage for the Pantone challenges, today’s design was ready to post so here we go. It’s been a while since I painted polar bear nail art and an even longer time since my Gone Fishing nail art design. Read More

Peachy Pink Poppies

February 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back tonight with a soft floral look featuring Pantone’s Peachy Pink shade. I was really excited to make a look for such a pretty color and spent way too much time going back and forth through my stamping plate collection. But I finally settled on poppies because alliteration is Read More

I managed to paint several manis in December that I didn’t have the energy to post. It worked out well because this one fit the prompts for both #NailsWithIgFriends’ Winter Animals (hosted by Tricia @artisanloom.nailz this month) and Catherine’s (@mrscronall) monthly prompt for 2020 #mymonthlynaturalmani’s Snowflakes.

Today I have some nail art depicting Santa’s last vacation before it’s all about getting ready for Christmas. Hit the slopes while you can, Santa! 😄 Today’s colors were inspired by Pantone’s Sugar Almond for #pantone2019winterchallenge. I did have other colors that might have fit the bill, but these were Read More

Frosty Candles

Generally speaking I post my nail art to the blog first. This design has been on Instagram for a while because it was last week’s #pantone2019winterchallenge: Frost Gray. So I had to post it on Sunday even though I didn’t have the energy to write up a blog post. Products Read More

Autumn Owl – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 13, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today the color is pink! (And mustard, which I think looks fantastic combined with pink.) Born Pretty’s “Cosmos Bouquet” from their Candy Color stamping polish set is that perfect pink between this might be red and dark enough to work perfectly against white and black backgrounds. Here’s my Read More

A quick update this morning with a soft, neutral-colored nail art. I painted this for Ine’s (@inegeek) #pantone2019winterchallenge. KBShimmer’s “Tiers of Joy” was the closest I could come to a shade that matched Patone’s Crème de Pêche.

Hope you’re having a Happy Holo-ween! Halloween is just about over so let’s end this with a jack-o-lantern planet full of candy. I’d become an astronaut in that world… …as long as astronauts get good dental plans. 🤣 Products Used Base Polishes: Black Heart’s “Teal Galaxy“, Color Club’s “Beyond“, and Read More
