One of the great joys of the holiday season is the arrival of peppermint coffee creamers in the grocery store. Such an effortless way to make coffee magical in the morning. I like pumpkin spice coffee just fine, but I love peppermint coffee even more. Yum, yum, yum. So when Read More

Kitties really do make the best presents. Unless we’re talking waking up Christmas morning to find out that your cat vomited on the carpet. Hard pass on vomit presents. I decided for the red/black prompt from #firedazedchallenge that I wanted to cover presents so I used some cute kitty images Read More

I actually had this done in time to post on Friday, but I was too busy running around or being tired from running around to write all this out. The prompt from 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Christmas Childhood Memories. I wasn’t raised religious so that took out all Read More

For some reason this feels like a mani I have done before, but apparently I have not unless you count the blue ornaments on Blue Ornaments. LOL Maybe it’s because I kept getting the wrong balance of colors and had to repaint my ornaments a few times. I still kind Read More

I looked at Harunouta’s L031 Christmas-themed stamping plate last year and gave it a pass, but this year I decided I wanted it after all because the stamp images are so darn cute. Naturally, that meant I had to use them asap even though they are not Christmas-specific and I Read More

I started looking at buying from KBShimmer when they collaborated with one of the YouTubers I regularly watch. MissHollyBerries not only did a swatch and review of their Fall Collaboration Collection but had made a contribution of her own with #squadghouls. I knew I was getting it. It is hands-down Read More

You may not be aware of it yet, but I am a jerk. So instead of doing a normal Christmas theme, I chose to spend hours on this instead because it amused me. It all started with the jack-in-the-box Santa. I knew I had to do something terrible with it. Read More

Pastel Christmas

December 23, 2016 Lisa 2

The challenge was pretty simple and so I decided to keep it simple and use patterns that reminded me of Christmas wrapping paper. I dug through my nail plates and found a few Christmas-specific patterns and a few that fit given the right colors and surroundings. In contrast to my Read More

I didn’t want to do presents or trees or holiday ornaments. So I thought I’d do a Christmas date night theme instead. I wish I’d stamped some background holo snowflakes on all of the nails instead of just my thumb, but I think it still worked out okay. Base Colors: Read More
