Turkeys Wanted

Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s look has taken a while to reach you. I painted it clear back in 2020 after Thanksgiving. So I told myself I would share it next year and never even got around to editing to photos. To continue the tradition, I meant to post it a day Read More

Cute owls dressed up in costumes--ghost/vampire/mummy/witch/skeleton--stamped onto a white/black thermal polish with Halloween glitter.

Halloween Owls

Once upon a time I told myself a story about how I was going to find time to release two blog posts on Halloween. And lo! The gamble of saving the most Halloween nail art to post last did not pan out. That’s fine because we are Halloween all year Read More

Talk Like a Pirate Day nail art with cute pirate stamping images (captain, ship, parrot) on a teal to purple multichrome polish.

Ship Ahoy!

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Or at least the barest edge of the end of it depending on your time zone. I’ve been keeping busy with IRL things like finishing painting the deck with my husband. It rained a few days ago and the water beading up it made Read More

A cedar green owl nail art with an iridescent glitter jelly sandwich and owl, feathers, lock, and key reverse stamping decals.

Owl Glower

Today we have an older look that I meant to share years ago. I always loved this image of an owl perched on a key with a heart lock and roses so I made it the center point of this mani. Then I just took those elements and found ways Read More

A blue and red nail art with stamping decals of pink umbrellas, singing yellow birds, and rainy clouds and two nails covered in red flakies.

Singing in the Rain

I’ve had this nail art sketched out in my nail art ideas booklet for a looong time and I was super happy to finally have an excuse to paint it for @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘U’ is for Umbrella prompt. Pretty much combining happy wild songbirds with my favorite weather (rain) and umbrellas! 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

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

Enchanted Penguins

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

A neon cool nail art of penguins gazing up at a sky of shooting stars against an icey mountain background.

Star-gazing Penguins

Several years ago there was a pair of nail art prompts from one of the challenges that had people painting a spring-type nail art with fall colors and vice versa. I had a lot of fun with the prompt and always thought I’d like to do the same with summer Read More
