I don’t know about you but I’ve been operating with a personal list of holidays I celebrate for a while and it’s now bleeding into my nail art. So I had to paint some shark nail art for Shark Week (July 22-29 in 2018). I was looking around without much Read More

I love playing with transparency and depth and this jelly polish by Ms. Sparkle with all its delightful glitters was a delight to work with. I was so sad when this design chipped off my nails before I could throw some gel top coat on top. Must remember to time Read More

It’s important to include key words in your title. *cough* Yep… So this was a wonderful blend of prompts: #AZNailArtChallenge’s Indie and both #SummerToxicVanity’s, #Beautometry’s and #GlamNailChallenge’s Mermaid (very common theme for this month). Now I only had to include an indie polish as my base, but I also wanted Read More

So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More

I think #NailArtChallenge’s Blue/Purple prompt is the perfect time to share this mani. This is not the first time that Born Pretty’s gorgeous Chameleon Cat’s Eye 24 appeared on this blog. In fact, what you are seeing right now is the same application of the polish. Hey, it’s a gel. Read More

#NailsWithIgFriends is a group that has just one prompt a month and the person in charge of the prompt and the collage at the end changes each month. This was my first month participating and @nailcraftaddict was running the show and picked Arctic Wildlife. Now being me I kinda wanted Read More

The other nail art prompt that I wanted to cover yesterday was Water for #StampingMasterAugust. Now Jaws had water in it, but it was all painted freehand so it didn’t really fit the name of the group. Plus I had this beautiful stamping plate from CICI & SISI with an Read More

Jaws is not one of the games my parents bought for our Nintendo, but they did rent it for us one of the few times we had a babysitter. I loved it and we did manage to get them to rent it for us one more time. I beat it Read More

I love doing manis with ocean life. And I’ve been doing a lot of serious-looking nail art lately so it’s time to switch it up for a bit. I did this for Nail Crazies Unite Ocean Life theme. I had some super cute patterns on CICI & SISI’s Children’s Park Read More
