Anti-Valentine

I normally don’t have much to do with Valentine’s Day beyond chocolate eating but #NailCraziesUnite’s prompt was Anti-Valentine Hearts and so that’s what we’re doing! Anti-Valentine hearts are an amusing response to the holiday. I think Singles’ Day is a better one (the sales are about more than just delicious 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

December 5, 2017 Lisa 0

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

#GlamNailsChallenge and #FireDazedChallenge’s last prompt of the month is First Frost. Three designs immediately came to mind: blue/white/silver snowflake mani (a classic design that I painted on my mom’s nails last year), a freehand fall landscape with a teeny bit of snow, and a more abstract design with fall and Read More

It’s unicorn time again and so it is also time to bring out my lovely Cupcake holo glitter polishes. This time it was for a fall gradient so I had to supplement the strawberry red and yellow with an orange and a bright green. Fortunately my holo collection has grown Read More

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I have two manicures to share with you today and there will be another post tonight. To start, I thought it would be nice to paint my poor cindy hand again. It still weirds me out that my nails are so short and I haven’t been taking care of them Read More

Monsters’ Ball

October 29, 2017 Lisa 2

The ghouls are out and dancing! I had two stamping plates with cute monsters from the SP line so I decided to double stamp randomly from them for this nail art. I did this on my cindy hand with its nails filed down really far because I was tired of Read More

Guys, I missed International Coffee Day. I am so sad. But I turned that sorrow into a calendar reminder for next year so as long as I don’t do the 31 Day Challenge again, I think we’re good. And I won’t. Because the 31 Day Challenge this year left me Read More

This nail art is over a month old. I have been saving it for a day when I needed something to fill the slot but then I did so many challenges last month that I never used it. Now is the prefect time since I need a water marble for Read More

Geometric Autumn

September 15, 2017 Lisa 2

Well, I finally dug out my Born Pretty Chameleon Holo Flakes Powder pot and some no-light gels and top coat to see if I could make it work. Results were patchy and I really, really hate the black. It’s gotten very goopy very quickly and takes three coats for full Read More
