Easter-ween

I’ve really been enjoying the Instagram prompts from @inkednailzartchallenge. They’re just that little bit edgy and alt-culture for me. I hit a few prompts in March and I’m going to get them all this month if I can. They started off April with a bang by coming up with an Read More

A spring floral mani with yellow, red, and pink tulips and a watering can stamped over a bright green holographic polish.

Spring Tulips

April 6, 2022 Lisa 0

There was a tulip prompt last month that I didn’t have time to paint even though I knew what I wanted to do. Naturally I was able to get to it this month since April tends to have lots of flower and rain prompts. You’ll have to wait on the Read More

A book/tv/movie inspired Anne of Green Gables mani with stamping decals of the book cover and Anne with gold decorative nail stickers.

Anne of Green Gables

April 4, 2022 Lisa 0

March 2022’s ManixMe box was all about classic literature and reading. They did a bunch of little sets for each book they decided to feature. I decided to base my nail art on Anne of Green Gables. I do remember enjoying reading the series in elementary school, though it was Read More

Lrn Gud (at School)

I typically don’t paint back to school nail art or anything of the sort because I’m out of school and I’m not even remotely in charge of my stepchildrens’ schooling. Plus by August my old office was so hot. It was really hard to get much nail art done. So Read More

A green glow in the dark nail art with a long snake stamping decal stretched across the nails and a hidden snake-y message.

Snakes Go Hiss

March 30, 2022 Lisa 0

To my surprise, I really haven’t painted that much snake nail art for the blog. Then I realized I had two snake-y Witches of S designs drawn out and they hadn’t been painted yet. In my head, though, I’ve added them to my count and so I’ve done sooo many. Read More

A brocade-like Thailand nail art featuring Buddah meditating over a lotus blossom + a Thai flame fabric pattern over a flakie purple polish.

Thailand Meditations

March 29, 2022 Lisa 0

My husband spent two years in Thailand when he was much younger and still speaks a little Thai. So needless to say we both would love to visit Thailand. Mind you I am not fond of the high humidity high heat combination so we’re definitely not staying, but I want Read More

A fiery brick rose crelly nail art with red zodiac stamping images of stylized goat and girl with horn and the symbol for Aries.

Zodiac Collection: Aries

March 28, 2022 Lisa 0

I’m back with the third installment from the Zodiac Collection. We are in the time of Aries, a firey member of the zodiac that is also associated with goats and the color red. I went with a flame motif and used Maniology’s ManixMe zodiac stamping plates to guide this look Read More

A silver magnetic bad luck nail art with reverse stamping decals of broken mirrors, mirror shards, and butterflies.

Bad Luck

March 23, 2022 Lisa 0

No Patty Day manis for me this year, but today I have a bad luck nail art that really ended up being bad luck for me! Or perhaps I should say I had bad luck with it because I slammed the door on my nail art-ing hand’s middle finger. So, Read More

Orange Rock 'n Roll nail art complete with nail stamping of snakeskin animal print, a guitarist, and singer/dancer, and Pixiedust polish.

Rock ‘n Roll

March 18, 2022 Lisa 0

Music is today’s subject. Particularly rock ‘n roll. I spent a little time looking up different rock groups. It’s amazing how tacky and fun their outfits were. So many crazy patterns and animal prints to go with the long hair. In the end I found myself coming up with a Read More

A glow in the dark nail art of a Caribbean half octopus half shark monster, lusca, attacking against a black/red duochrome teal sea.

Lurking Lusca

March 17, 2022 Lisa 0

On this blog we always try to celebrate Shark Week with some nail art and I also loooove the octopus. So when I purchased a stamping plate that had a strange creature with both octopus tentacles and a shark’s head, I knew I had to use it. The lusca is Read More
