Dinosaur metaphor nail art about the stresses and pressures of Christmas shopping as the dinos battle it out on red backgrounds.

Shop to Win

December 3, 2022 Lisa 0

Black Friday has changed a lot over the years, but generally speaking I think it’s gotten less deadly but ultimately not more relaxed. The stress of it has just stretched out across the whole month. A kind of long wander through sales with a few extra good prices tucked in Read More

Santa’s Preparations

Yep, I’m still behind on posts. But! I’ve still got a schedule for new nail art for Christmas so I’m gonna intersperse the catch-up with the keep-up. Monochrome can be so hard but so fun. In 2020 I started a little collection of nail art in different monochrome color schemes Read More

It has been a while since my last post and I’m happy to say that it wasn’t more dark days preventing me from posting but selling my home, buying a home, and moving to another state (see also replacing my phone on short notice, unpacking my Too Much, and fixing Read More

Snow-deer Reindeer

February 2, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s theme is cute and snowflake-y, but the prompt that inspired this design was #NailsWithIG Friend’s Winter Animal. Now Maniology’s BM-S156 is a stamping plate with nothing but winter animals, so I was definitely using it. And I knooow that Christmas is over, but I could not resist this cute Read More

A rainbow glow in the dark mani of silhouetted Halloween images of bats, jack-o-lanterns, haunted castle, spiders, and eyeball candy glowing out from a Christmas tree frame.

Halloween Tree

December 31, 2020 Lisa 3

I might as well end this crap year with something that makes me very happy. So today on New Years Eve I’m sharing the mani I painted for the #halloweenforevercollab: a Halloween Tree. The Nightmare Before Christmas has forever cemented a love of blending Christmas and Halloween together and so Read More

Reindeer Holiday

December 25, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

Olive Christmas art featuring accent nails with poinsettia stamping decals and a wee bird and holographic olive polish.

The Poinsettia

December 22, 2020 Lisa 2

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

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

Red Reindeer Christmas

December 17, 2020 Lisa 3

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More
