Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

Three Sweet Manis

March 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

Olive Spring

February 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I have been sitting on this nail art for over a year just waiting for the perfect time to post it. And as we’re just heading into spring nail art season (which can be quite different from what’s going on outside depending on where you live), now felt good. It Read More

A red to black gradient nail art with swirls of magic and a wicked, sexy witch casting a summoning stamped on top plus a haunted house.

Witch of Summoning

February 24, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look was brought to you by learning to stop before you ruin something. See, my initial plan was to have the vertical gradient and then stamp a whole landscape of haunted houses as a kind of French tip that then fades into the black. But then I thought I Read More

A pale mint and chocolate chip nail polish base with rice, fish, and miso soup stamping decals as a Japanese breakfast.

Fishy Breakfast

February 19, 2021 Lisa 4

I used to be all about the French toast and the crepes stuffed with whip cream and fruit. Like…give me the dessert breakfast, please. And there’s cereal or the typical platter of pancakes/hash browns/bacon/eggs. Those are nice, but that’s not what I typically eat for breakfast anymore. Yesterday I had Read More

Two Year of the Ox nail art designs: one in classical red and gold (and black) and the other in the year's lucky colors: yellow, blue, and purple.

Year of the Ox (x2)

February 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

A dark burgundy to nude with glitter baby boomer French tip with silly hungry cat stamping decals on top and "Love at first bite" nail art.

Love at First Bite

February 15, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look is another design I’ve been wanting to paint for a few years. It’s also one I wanted to post around Valentine’s Day as both an alternate perspective of the day and an anti-Valentine mani. And if you follow me on Instagram, I actually did manage to post it Read More

A Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

February 3, 2021 Lisa 2

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More

An aqua magnetic baby boomer french tip nail design with green to rose gold gradient snowflakes and a cute reindeer stamping decal.

Snow-deer Reindeer

February 2, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s theme is cute and snowflake-y, but the prompt that inspired this design was #NailsWithIG Friend’s Winter Animal. Now Maniology’s BM-S156 is a stamping plate with nothing but winter animals, so I was definitely using it. And I knooow that Christmas is over, but I could not resist this cute Read More

A magenta-purple mani with tons of blue and magenta flakies with a wee little smiling banana stamping decal.

Banana-rama

January 27, 2021 Lisa 2

There was a time when I was making myself a green smoothie every day and my home was full of the overripe bananas from the store because I could get them cheaper that way. And while bananas were thriftily in all of them, I was making the real deal green Read More
