Well, I’m going to be getting out of order, but I haven’t forgotten the nail art prompts that I missed! I really wanted to paint some Robin Moses nail art this month, but I wasn’t interested in snowmen (which is what the prompts were for on Instagram) so I asked Read More

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more Read More

I’ve seen a few red/green thermal polishes come out this year, but I think Shinespark Polish came out with the first one for Christmas when she released it in 2017. I couldn’t resist buying it and I’m so glad I did. This is the first design I painted with it, Read More

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 Make the Best Presents

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

Press Sample I apparently needed a mental break on top of spending the weekend with family. Well, today I am back with four different nail designs as I explore the possibilities and quality of the stamping plates Beauty BigBang sent to me (I will do a review for the sequins Read More
