Cats in Blue and White

I enjoy a color challenge, which is why I follow the pantone challenge so much, but there’s another nail art challenge with color prompts that I used to follow on FB called When Colours Collide. I think the last time I joined in there was August 2018. The major difference Read More

A dusty dark blue mani with transparent jellyfish stamping decals swimming in the sea with little bubbles and flashes of holo.

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

Purple and blue rose-themed nail art with layered stamping roses on a matte blue glitter background.

Winter Rose

It’s funny, I have a lot to say today, but none of it feels like it belongs in the intro. This is a new rose-themed nail art that uses layered stamping, a technique I avoid because it’s extra labor intensive for me. No more! (kinda) Also, photos were taken of Read More

True blue nail art decorated with a rising zombie cat and glow in the dark ghost cat.

Spooky Cats

September’s Mani X Me box had a Pet Cemetery theme so, of course, I could not resist. And once I realized that I could actually put a hold on my subscription and skip the boxes where I wasn’t interested in everything (generally the stamping polishes are colors I already have Read More

Classic blue magnetic nail art with adorable fish-loving polar bear stamping decals.

Gone Ice Fishing

As much as I enjoy being able to include the next prompt collage for the Pantone challenges, today’s design was ready to post so here we go. It’s been a while since I painted polar bear nail art and an even longer time since my Gone Fishing nail art design. Read More

Blue metallic nail art with tribal stamping decals in a light blue.

Tribe of the Bluestone

February 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I do love it when the title of the piece comes from something simple like the prompt that I used to inspire it. In this case, I combined #Pantone2019WinterChallenge’s Bluestone shade with my last unused Nee Jolie stamping plate: NJX-002, a tribal stamping plate. I’m actually still debating just destashing Read More

Three monochrome Christmas manis in purple, blue, and yellow.

Rainbow Christmas part 1

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Autumnal nail art with a little blue bird against a robin blue crelly full of pink/orange/red flakies.

Blue Bird of Autumn – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 24, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I painted this in September, but it really felt more fall-like than summer so I have held it back until now. Unfortunately, that meant holding back my review for Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” as well, but… Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” …it ended up looking so similar to their “Orange Autumn” Read More

Blue nail art with holographic silver squares and a glamourous lady shopper

Retail Blues

Can it be? Am I posting my mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge’s Evening Blue shade on not-Sunday? 😂 My design was inspired by this month, which, as discussed with others earlier today, is really more about the buying of the things. Black Friday and Cyber Monday become increasingly spread out as stores Read More

Blue Lily - Hermit Werds - cobalt blue nail art with pearly white lily nail stamping and flower decal

Blue Lily

September 2, 2018 Lisa 0

Oh, I love this blue. It’s bright and yet not absolutely saturated and obnoxious. It’s dark but not so dark that it doesn’t show up as blue in most lighting situations. It is probably one of the few polishes that I would get a backup bottle to. Most other polish Read More
