Today I’m combining #NailCraziesUnite’s prompt of Pastel Watercolor and #WNAC2018’s prompt of Feathers. I’ve been enjoying this opal white gel for the lovely translucent effect it can add to your nail art. So far I’ve tried it with glitter, jelly polishes, and now watercolors. The only thing that sucks about Read More

So #clairestelle8 has all mythical creature prompts this month (like /cough unicorn) and that’s pretty hard for me to resist. Happily, I already had designs I wanted to do for most of these beasties, especially the phoenix. I have already painted a few phoenix designs before, but I bought OS-03 Read More

I’ve been meaning to use these images for years and apparently this was the month. Sushi Cats! I am trying out a new (for me) challenge #AdultsColoringBookNails (Your Favorite Pet). I think these turned out rather well even though I used a glossy top coat and had a really hard Read More

I’m not sure why but Harunouta seems to think that cats in cups is a very good thing. There are at least six small ones on their stamping plates and one big mug with three kitties. And since I like making colorful coffee nail art I decided to do one Read More

So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More

This post was brought to you by pre-planning and vodka. I just knew moving would break my blog and I’m doing what I can to fix it, but I have over 250 blog posts and probably three times that in pictures to fix. One day at a time, eh? Definitely Read More

I certainly meant to have this come out yesterday (esp since I’ve already posted it to Instagram), but I guess that wasn’t in the cards. So this is my first post of the day and there will be another around noon MT. I live in America so elephants have definitely Read More

Since I’d already painted a Phoenix and a unicorn this month I decided to tackle a different Mythical Creature for this month’s #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by Christine (@shortywhatwhat). I ran through a few classics, but I’ve already done dragons a few times as well. So I thought I would tackle Pegasus Read More
