Taurus nail art with a blue/green magnetic polish and stamping decals of oxen, fields, grain, and a Taurus symbol.

Zodiac Collection: Taurus

April 28, 2022 Lisa 0

We’re back for another eastern zodiac nail art. So for a starter, happy birthday to all the Taurus out there! Now let’s break out the false nails. Since Taurus is an Earth element and the ox is often associated with farming, I decided to paint that for my mani. I Read More

An anti-Valentine/Easter/Halloween pink/purple solar crelly mani with emo bunny stamping decals wielding indifference and a chainsaw/knife.

Emo Bunnies

April 23, 2022 Lisa 0

In the early 2000s shirts and stickers with cute animals saying or doing anti-social things got really popular. I remember thinking they were pretty fun, even though I was too cheap to buy my own. They’re no longer mainstream, but, thanks to the internet, you can still own a “not Read More

A holiday mashup nail design for Halloween and Easter with a pink/yellow thermal polish and zombie/monster rabbit stamping decals.

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 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 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 layered landscape mani of a woodland with a path running through that a woman is biking down. Includes secret Sasquatch/Bigfoot.

Woodland Bike Ride

March 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today’s look was a lesson in how difficult those layered landscape nail art designs are. Also, I am kicking myself because I forgot a few plates I had that would have offered a few better options. Oh, well. I learned a lot from painting this one and still love my Read More

A polka dot pig nail art with party pig reverse stamping decals and polka dots tucked between layers of a bright green jelly polish.

Party Pigs

February 23, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s time for a pig party where the pigs dance around in a vortex of polka dots while wearing crowns and eating cupcakes! Okay, it sounds a little strange to describe it in that amount of detail, but party pig nail art makes sense and has some alliteration, which I Read More

Soft penguin nail art with metallic black stamping images of fanciful penguins and grey-blue geometric ice patterns.

Enchanted Penguins

February 18, 2022 Lisa 1

Everything around me is saying spring (except, perhaps, the temperature of the room I’m in), but it technically is still winter so: penguins! And that makes me happy because I haven’t painted much in the way of penguin nail art and I have…so, so many stamping plates… #AZNailArtChallenge – ‘P’ Read More

A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

Bones at the Beach

August 3, 2021 Lisa 3

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More

Pool party nail art using mint polish and a soft beige glitter crelly with stamping decals of anthropomorphic animals swimming and dj-ing.

Pool Party

July 11, 2021 Lisa 1

The prompt was pool party, a very summer-y topic, and I had this cool stamping plate with little animals playing sports. It’s nice when you get to be utterly literal except I realize now looking at this nail art that it’s an introvert’s pool party. Everyone is all alone on Read More
