Happy Hanukkah

It’s incomprehensible to me why anti-Semitism persists in existing, but it really feels like it’s shouting a lot louder right now. So even though I am not a Jew (or a Christian or anything but someone who can cherry pick any holiday they want), I thought it was time to Read More

Dinosaur metaphor nail art about the stresses and pressures of Christmas shopping as the dinos battle it out on red backgrounds.

Shop to Win

Black Friday has changed a lot over the years, but generally speaking I think it’s gotten less deadly but ultimately not more relaxed. The stress of it has just stretched out across the whole month. A kind of long wander through sales with a few extra good prices tucked in Read More

I hope you were luckier than me and got to see the lunar eclipse if you wanted to. It was cloudy where I live, which is probably going to be the story of the rest of my life. I’ll take it for the rain. Still, it’s starting to get rather Read More

A super spicy mustard nail art for the Harvest Moon featuring stamping images of wheat grain and rockets flying past the moon.

Harvest Moon

It’s been a while since I painted something where I thought the difference between matte and glossy top coat would be interesting to see. You’ll see the photos swap back and forth between the two. This harvest nail art was painted for the Harvest Moon full moon clear back in Read More

Narwhale nail art with rainbow swirls on a peach background and a freehand painted narwhale painted on top "Tap that fish!".

Tap that Fish

November 3, 2022 Lisa 0

About five years ago, Adam Ravetch captured the first ever footage of a narwhal using its tusk to hunt fish. They literally tap the fish to stun them and then swim up the rest of the way to nom them down. I thought that was hilarious and, of course, it Read More

Once upon a time I told myself a story about how I was going to find time to release two blog posts on Halloween. And lo! The gamble of saving the most Halloween nail art to post last did not pan out. That’s fine because we are Halloween all year Read More

Hopefully this is a sign of how peaceful the next few months will be. That’s right, I’m posting the lastest zodiac mani soon after the date where you can be born a Scorpio. Happy birthday to a wonderful group of people! I hope you like the design I painted for Read More

Some of the nail art I finished in September didn’t get posted before I had to take a break to focus on day to day life stuff. Today I’m sharing one of them: a nail art meant somewhat to be back to school themed, but also Halloween since it was Read More

A deep red and prugly green stiletto mani with the Disney-esque evil queen from Snow White and her poison apple. Eat me!

Eat the Poison Apple

Today’s look was inspired by the second baddest Disney queen: the evil queen. I’m not sure she even had a name, but I love her nose when she goes full crone. I don’t think I’m alone in loving her elderly form so much more than the haughty younger one. She’s Read More

A Halloween cat nail art with sweet black kitties climbing into things on a purple jelly polish filled with black and holographic glitter.

I think there was a cat butt collab on Instagram and if so I definitely missed it, but I’m still happy to bring you a cat butt mani. Featuring the butts of black cats because today is National Black Cat Day. My personal black cat™ will be getting some extra Read More
