Leo

It’s funny because in some ways I’ve been trying to make my nail art fancier lately with more layering of elements and kinda amping up my backgrounds. And here we are today and it’s just a magnetic and one stamp per nail. But, wait! This is part of the zodiac Read More

Sturgeon Moon nail art with flying fish and a pink dolphin guided by a girl on a magical journey across a shifty pink and grey sky.

I think the moon manis have been my best project this year although it may be too soon to say since we’re only four prompts in. All I know is that I’ve been very happy with each one for different reasons. This one turned out super cute and I actually Read More

Mythical nail art with teal origami stamping decals of dragons, unicorns, and Pegasus on top of a jelly coral base and pond geometric pattern.

In a Coral Fantasy

Long, long ago I bought Moyou London’s Origami Collection-05 stamping plate. It has lots of origami figures on it (as opposed to the patterns that make the bulk of the collection). I used it in three different manis, fully intending to paint three more manis and fully use the entire Read More

Shark nail art with cute sharks who have taken bites out of hearts as stamping decals on a glitzy blue base polish.

Shark Love

I am definitely the part of the population that loves Shark Week because I love sharks. Who wouldn’t love an animal that bites things because one of its major environmental inputs is its mouth. When can I get that excuse? But Shark Week is in July and I totally missed Read More

Today’s look has been living in my head for a while. I snagged several bottles of Just Add Sun polishes (which I’m quickly reviewing) when they were on sale in my local grocery store and have been slooowly using them all. I thought they would look really neat in a Read More

Last night was the Buck Moon and it was so big and beautiful in the sky. We left the theater after watching Thor: Love and Thunder and were about to go home with a box of yummy cookies in hand when the kids pointed out that you could see Mount Read More

Chinese New Year of the Tiger nail art in their lucky colors (blue, grey, white, orange) w/nail stamping decals of tigers & Chinese characters.

Lucky Year of the Tiger

July 9, 2022 Lisa 2

I’ve fallen into a pattern when it comes to Chinese New Year. It’s always a good idea to paint one in red/gold/black colors. They are the tradition and are a better resource for others later on. However, I like bringing rainbows where people use neutrals (or in this case a Read More

A space cat nail art with a cat drinking planet milk + UFO abducting a cat on a pink to white thermal with pink/purple/blue glitter.

Cats Conquer Space 3.0

July 6, 2022 Lisa 1

I seem to have a thing for cats in space and I have been led there happily by stamping plate designers. Along with the stamping plates from the June ManixMe box, we already had Born Pretty’s Outer Space XL 1 & 2, Creative Shop 191, Moyou London’s Crazy Cat Lady Read More

Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

A sterling silver magnetic (zodiac) cancer nail art w/reverse stamping decals of crabs and a swirly ocean/shell background pattern.

Cancer

June 23, 2022 Lisa 0

It was really hard for me to not make this a red/blue nail art, because crabs = red and water sign = blue. But. But! Supposedly the colors for the cancer astrological sign are grey, white, and blue with a goal for the colors being soft. So I went with Read More
