Celestial Butterflies

When I first got started in nail art, galaxy manis used to only mean some kind of sponged gradient with stars added on top, but these days there’s such a wide range of techniques to play with. Instead of a gradient, why not use a magnetic polish? Especially a gel Read More

Monstrous family portrait nail art with a sweet green wallpaper background and reverse stamping decals of framed monster strewn with cobwebs.

Dead the Halls

January 8, 2024 Lisa 0

Today’s look just didn’t want to come together in my head. The prompt was Dead the Halls and I had plenty of ideas that I could paint for it, but nothing really stood out to me. My sticking point was that I had this monster Christmas wreath image I wanted Read More

A simple orange magnetic Halloween quilt nail art with cozy quilt patterns of everything from pumpkins to black cats to spiders in black.

Cozy and Creepy

I already had a tiny backlog of nail art to post and instead of posting those, I finished another collab mani that I wanted to post today. And it’s not for Thanksgiving because that’s barely a holiday to me outside of yummy food and seeing family. No, it’s Halloween. Because Read More

A golden, orange, and brown magnetic mani of fall leaves gently blending into each other for a soft, abstract look. + one bastard stink bug.

Fall Nemesis

November 10, 2023 Lisa 0

I think I’m sorting out the frustrations keeping me from nail art-ing. It’s a combination of three things: First, having too many designs in a row that were struggle and the results were not true love. Output garbage = feel like garbage, I guess. Second, Google Chrome sucking and making Read More

Sheer tortoiseshell nails painted with jelly polishes in mustard and browns with some vintage Pooh and Piglet line art stamped on top.

Hundred Acre Wood

I think I lost momentum somewhere in the middle of October and I just haven’t been able to get it back. The yard needs me to weed it because fall is a growing season. I have soooo many weeds. The cat needs love. The people needs love. Other things that Read More

Spooky gnome nail art with spider webs and three gnomes dressed as a bat-loving witch, a ghost, and a cobweb covered spider lover.

Halloween Gnomes

October 22, 2023 Lisa 0

Gnomes have become the thing. I’d say their popularity has really grown the past two years and they’ve taken the place of the unicorn plates everyone had to make. Only for some reason gnomes fit in everywhere so you can get a regular plate with a few gnomes thrown in Read More

A glow in the dark pink Alice in Wonderland nail art of Alice falling down the rabbit hole, chasing the White Rabbit, and changing size.

Down the Rabbit Hole

We wish Alice luck as she’s off on her adventure in Wonderland. Meanwhile today’s mani is in celebration of Mad Hatter Day; although ironically it doesn’t have a single image of the hatter himself. It’s a little weird that he gets a day when Alice doesn’t, but apparently a group Read More

Spider nail art of delicate, bejeweled spider webs with spider friends, framed by florals stamped on a dark musty green flakie polish.

Spiders, Spiders, Everywhere

October 3, 2023 Lisa 0

The spiders are certainly very visible presences right now. The orb weavers are orbing all over my yard and the house spiders are shaking tail in my home. It’s a weird point of pride when I see a particularly big one. Today’s look is for the spiders in my bushes. Read More

Beautiful sunflower nail art in soft yellows on a shimmery orange background with a wicked flipside stamping of spiders on their webs.

Sunflowers and Spiders

September 30, 2023 Lisa 1

Today’s look is all about sweet, beautiful sunflowers. Until it’s not. Hee hee! I truly love both sides of this nail art for different reasons, but holy cow it was a lot of layers. One layer for the spiders. One layer for the spider webs. Three layers of the magenta Read More

A simple floral nail art in purples and browns with flower and butterfly stamping decals and the word "today".

Floral Today

September 17, 2023 Lisa 0

I was supposed to post this clear back in April. It was for a challenge. With a collage. The only colors I could use were purple and brown and I did a fairly decent job even though I was trying to come back from a painting drought. But I kept Read More
