Zombie Panda Cocktail

March 24, 2021 Lisa 1

This nail art was brought to you by earlier delusions about how much nail art I could paint this month. Hence I combined a panda prompt from a challenge I’m definitely not completing with a prompt from the glamnailschallenge for cocktail. It was this or do something with shrimp because Read More

Fruit-themed bright orange nail art with orange slice and orange stamping decals on top.

The Orange-iest

January 22, 2021 Lisa 2

The only way this nail art could get orange-er is if I’d used an orange stamping polish instead of black. Kinda wish I had, but avoiding black stamping is my personal and eternal challenge so I can’t say it really needed it. 😆 I actually painted this one clear back 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!

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

Funny coffee nail stamping decals over black baby boomer french tips with rainbowy bar glitter.

Coffee Makes Me Poop

September 29, 2020 Lisa 4

Happy International Coffee Day! Was I being too tmi? Well, what else can you expect from me. I’ve been wanting to paint this exact rainbow coffee nail art for a while because the contrast between the cheeriness of the rainbow-y bar glitter and the wording (carefully crafted by removing the Read More

[press sample] Today we take a break from our regularly scheduled reviews of stamping plates (heh) to talk about these great little metallic foils in gold, silver, copper, and gold/blue that come in a set of twelve jars. Now, Beauty BigBang describes them as “12 Box Gold Silver Copper Metallic Read More

[press sample] It’s time to get back in the reviewing saddle! Today I have two stamping plates for you BeautyBigBang XL-031 and BeautyBigBang XL-032. I asked for the whole winter holiday set of five stamping plates so you will be seeing the other three soon. 😉 I’m very sad that Read More

Today is National Milk Day so I thought it was time to share this mani. Also, my apologies for lying about posting new nail art the next day. I had a design planned out and partially painted, but my heart wouldn’t let me finish it until I made a few Read More

Well, I guess I can say definitively now: unless everything is ready and all I have to do is hit “Post”, the blog and social media do not get touched when I’m visiting family. That’s probably for the best, but it’s a little hard when you’re trying not to keep Read More

Happy International Coffee Day! Or…belated America’s National Coffee Day… (Seriously, America, pick up your skirts and shuffle over a few days so we can all be together.) I thought I’d celebrate by making sure the end of my “year” of coffee nail art fell on this day so there’s been Read More

Iced Coffee

I both love how this design came together and feel oddly meh about it at the same time. The amusing reason is that #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt for this week is Least Favorite Color. This is extremely difficult for me because my favorite color is rainbow. I’ve been saying it’s rainbow for Read More
