Two Year of the Ox nail art designs: one in classical red and gold (and black) and the other in the year's lucky colors: yellow, blue, and purple.

Year of the Ox (x2)

February 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

A scattered holographic mustard nail art design with tattoo-like skulls, florals, and rib cage stamping decals.

Holo-ween Skulls and Florals

January 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I’m really happy to say that I’ve managed to keep up with the #HalloweenForeverCollab since November of last year. It’s only three months, but I think that’s my longest run so far. I even turned this one in at the start of the month instead of frantically trying to paint Read More

A New Years mani with a grey background, bright green stamping of winter/spring/summer/fall seasons and "2021" on top.

Seasons of 2021

December 30, 2020 Lisa 2

The new year has generally always held hope of being better than the last one (or worse if life has worn you down that far). I remember thinking 2020 would be better than 2019. hahaha But I think most of us can agree that because of vaccines (and certain elections Read More

A champagne to rose to purple thermal polish combined with stamping decals of mugs, tea pots, and Alice falling endlessly.

Happy International Tea Day!

December 15, 2020 Lisa 5

For all the coffee nail art I have painted over the years, I have to admit I’ve been drinking more tea than coffee lately. It started with a strong tea drinking culture at work and then I started trying to cut down on caffeine later in the day. Now I Read More

Diamond themed nail art in pinks and purples with an iridescent white crelly accent nail that is covered in faceted gem stamping. "I like to sparkle."

Like to Sparkle

November 18, 2020 Lisa 4

I’m back to combining challenges today with a diamond-themed nail art for @liganailista’s diamantes prompt and a color scheme inspired by two of @inegeek’s pantone colors for this week. It’s a lot of pink and purple today. Because we are here to sparkle! (Except I didn’t use any glitter or Read More

A glow in the dark fire-y thermal red and black nail art with double stamped scorpion and flames and edgy black textured polish accent nails.

Fire-y Sting of the Scorpion (glow in the dark)

November 2, 2020 Lisa 2

While I was busy wrapping things up for Inktober I didn’t get around to finishing my last Halloween nail art and posting it. So here we are now, a tiny bit late for last week’s #pantone2020winterchallenge. Life is messy, but hopefully this glow in the dark mani with scorpions and Read More

Pugly green nail art with skeletal mermaid cat double stamping decals and a teal to green gradient.

Undead Mermaid Cats of the Deep

October 13, 2020 Lisa 1

Halloween tends to really bring my love for cats out to play. It’s probably why 2 out of 3 nail arts have featured kitties so far. I doubt I’ll be able to keep such a pawsome ratio up with Inktober going on as well, but hopefully there will be one Read More

Medium green nail art full of windy patterns and a bold winter lion slowly turning into a gentle white lamb.

Lion of March

March 13, 2020 Lisa 4

March was supposed to come in like a lion (winter) and out like a lamb (spring). Instead it came in like a lamb and I gratefully hung my wool coat in the closet and swapped to lighter fare. I’m even shedding my cardigan by mid-day! Maybe that’s why it’s taken Read More

Warm rosy-brown nail art with little chibi Japanese girls in kimonos.

Spring’s Frost

March 12, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back with a new look for #pantone2020summerchallenge and today’s Pantone color is Rose Brown. It is very aptly named. I decided to stick some little chibi girls in kimonos on top because I have an abundance of far eastern-themed stamping plates that I haven’t used yet. So…yeah…expect to see Read More
