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

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

I was all set to paint dinosaur nail art for today’s look but I ended up deciding on a simpler subject matter for today. Don’t worry, though, dinosaur nails will happen soon. I keep buying stamping plates with them! But somehow today’s color–Pantone Sheepskin–felt like more of a tree nail Read More

International Bird Day

January 5, 2021 Lisa 3

It’s International Bird Day today, so of course it’s time for some bird nail art! Now I don’t have a bird feeder because I don’t want additional bird poop around my house, but I do love little song birds. Particularly in art. They’re just cute little pops of nature and Read More

Today I proudly prove that I not only have enough green nail polish to paint yet another monochrome green mani, but I have enough olive polishes to do it. *high fives self* I’ve rather struggled to put together monochrome looks with other colors, but this olive mani came together like Read More

Nail art of Santa handing out fishy presents to cute penguins for Christmas and another penguin celebrating New Years on a blue crelly background.

Presents for Penguins

December 20, 2020 Lisa 2

Santa doesn’t just give out presents to all the good boys and girls. Surely all the good penguins also get a fishy treat for Christmas. Although…I am very uncertain what kind of cookies they would leave for Santa. 🤢🤣 When I was little my mom went through a crocheting phase Read More

Cardinal and Holly

December 12, 2020 Lisa 2

It has been one of those weeks where I just can’t find the energy to post even though I have plenty of nail art to post. So here we are on my first of two posts on Saturday with some winter nail art of a bright red cardinal and lots Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 5. Hide is a pelt stretched to dry. Music is a set of kitty ear headphones. Float is death floating on an inflated flamingo, scythe in hand. Shoes are a pair of flats. Ominous is an elephant about to eat a peanut. Crawl is a sloth on the ground.

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 And we’re done! Inktober can now be crossed off my bucket list for ever. Which is good because even beyond the does digital art count debacle, there was even more drama about this challenge Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 2. Blade is an armed praying mantis. Rodent is a kangaroo rat. Fancy is a polish chicken. Teeth are a bunch of teeth. Throw is a blanket. Hope is sharing birds. Disgusting is slimy okra.

October 12, 2020 Lisa 4

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 The first full week of Inktober has passed and I have already had a few moments where I rather resented that I had to draw today because I drew yesterday. On the other hand, Read More
