A Thanksgiving nail art with dancing (or fighting) turkeys against a deep orange base with magenta shimmer and copper vegetable stamping.

Turkey Dance

November 29, 2023 Lisa 0

Alas, the gap in nail art happened as predicted, but at least you had some warning this time, my poor reader! Today’s look was obviously in celebration of the United State’s Thanksgiving. Honestly, it’s a bit of a problematic holiday to me considering the story we tell about it compared Read More

A blue on blue hedgehog nail art design with a double stamped floral hedgehog framed by light blue texture polish.

Winter Hedgehog

November 9, 2023 Lisa 1

It amuses me that I have a very blue (with a little purple) nail art to share right after a lot of Democratic voting victories here in America. I didn’t plan it that way though. This cute little hedgehog mani was painted clear back in 2021 and I just never Read More

Sheer tortoiseshell nails painted with jelly polishes in mustard and browns with some vintage Pooh and Piglet line art stamped on top.

Hundred Acre Wood

November 7, 2023 Lisa 0

I think I lost momentum somewhere in the middle of October and I just haven’t been able to get it back. The yard needs me to weed it because fall is a growing season. I have soooo many weeds. The cat needs love. The people needs love. Other things that Read More

Spooky gnome nail art with spider webs and three gnomes dressed as a bat-loving witch, a ghost, and a cobweb covered spider lover.

Halloween Gnomes

October 22, 2023 Lisa 0

Gnomes have become the thing. I’d say their popularity has really grown the past two years and they’ve taken the place of the unicorn plates everyone had to make. Only for some reason gnomes fit in everywhere so you can get a regular plate with a few gnomes thrown in Read More

A jack-o-lantern and bats nail art with tiny bats delivering jack-o-lanterns on a dusty teal flakie-filled background for Halloween.

Pumpkin Delivery

October 21, 2023 Lisa 0

I didn’t have a bat prompt for this Halloween, so of course I had to find a way to sneak them in because I love bats. I had this design sketched up last year of little bats delivering pumpkins so when the jack-o-lantern prompt came up, I knew what I Read More

Black cat nail art with cute black cats cavorting across a cityscape with tiny mice stamped on a neon green to sparkly blue gradient.

Black Cat City

October 14, 2023 Lisa 0

It feels like a black cat year since this is the second time I’ve hit on the topic on an already bare year for nail art. I even have at least one more planned before the months’ end, but realistically I have two more that I’d like to post. Alas, Read More

A glow in the dark pink Alice in Wonderland nail art of Alice falling down the rabbit hole, chasing the White Rabbit, and changing size.

Down the Rabbit Hole

October 6, 2023 Lisa 0

We wish Alice luck as she’s off on her adventure in Wonderland. Meanwhile today’s mani is in celebration of Mad Hatter Day; although ironically it doesn’t have a single image of the hatter himself. It’s a little weird that he gets a day when Alice doesn’t, but apparently a group Read More

A celestial animal nail design with decals of a silver-outlined celestial deer, rabbit, and owl on a blue jelly sky with starry glitter.

Autumn Nights

September 28, 2023 Lisa 4

The title of the post is the name of the prompt I painted for. So I’m not being very imaginative there, but I do think I’m improving on the think out of the box thing. Because if I’d painted this a few years ago it would have been some trees Read More

A sweet fox nail art using watercolor-esque fox water decals on top of a pale yellow crelly base with metallic floral prints stamped on top.

Water Decal Foxes

September 23, 2023 Lisa 0

It’s funny how we associate different things with different seasons even though they often exist all year round. Like…pumpkins being a fall thing makes sense because that’s when they are ready to be inserted into your face or plopped on your front stoop (this year I’m seeing a lot of Read More

Dragon nail art with a complex magnetic green/aqua base and nail stamping of scales, a dragon eye, and an eastern dragon with flower accents.

Dragon Scale

September 22, 2023 Lisa 0

The dragons are here and they are magnetic! Esmaltes da Kelly/Phoenix makes such amazingly complex magnetic nail polishes. It’s terrible for my wallet, but great for my nails. With a prompt like Animal Print + magnetic, it was a simple decision to pick scales and a gorgeous green/aqua magnetic. And Read More
