Year of the Dragon

February 10, 2024 Lisa 0

If you’ve seen my other Chinese New Year nail art designs, you’ll know that I like to bring out my longer falsies for this particular holiday. (And for some reason I favor shorter falsies for the end of December one…huh…) This year I kept my classically colored red/black/gold set very Read More

Dragon nail art with a complex magnetic green/aqua base and nail stamping of scales, a dragon eye, and an eastern dragon with flower accents.

Dragon Scale

The dragons are here and they are magnetic! Esmaltes da Kelly/Phoenix makes such amazingly complex magnetic nail polishes. It’s terrible for my wallet, but great for my nails. With a prompt like Animal Print + magnetic, it was a simple decision to pick scales and a gorgeous green/aqua magnetic. And Read More

Sturgeon Moon nail art with flying fish and a pink dolphin guided by a girl on a magical journey across a shifty pink and grey sky.

I think the moon manis have been my best project this year although it may be too soon to say since we’re only four prompts in. All I know is that I’ve been very happy with each one for different reasons. This one turned out super cute and I actually Read More

Mythical nail art with teal origami stamping decals of dragons, unicorns, and Pegasus on top of a jelly coral base and pond geometric pattern.

In a Coral Fantasy

August 10, 2022 Lisa 2

Long, long ago I bought Moyou London’s Origami Collection-05 stamping plate. It has lots of origami figures on it (as opposed to the patterns that make the bulk of the collection). I used it in three different manis, fully intending to paint three more manis and fully use the entire Read More

A glittery silver base polish with an alcohol ink rainbow and reverse stamping decals of cute frolicking alicorns and unicorns. Glow in the dark.

Stay Magical, Unicorn!

June 22, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s June and I’m finally getting myself together to paint a unicorn mani for Junicorn. Naturally I had to drag some glow in the dark stuff into the party. And it is a party because this is my mani for the Saucy Collab and the prompt was Juneicorn Jubilee. I Read More

A purple shimmery mermaid nail art that says "In a sea of fish, be a mermaid" with mermaid, mermaid tail, and fish stamping images.

Ode to Mermaid

MerMay seems to be more of a traditional/digital artist thing because I haven’t really seen any of the nail challenges acknowledge it for a few years. Luckily the Saucy Mani Squad was looking for prompt suggestions for May and June and I was watching the group chat at the right Read More

A red magnetic nail art with soft rose gold crelly accent nails and stamping decals of fairies, mushrooms, and flora.

Mushroom Fairies

June 24, 2021 Lisa 4

It’s International Fairy Day so I thought I’d share this magnetic red nail art with fairies (of course). I paired them with lots of mushrooms because I love the shape of those things and a little splash of holographic polish in the wings. So basically I went full on sweetness Read More

Teal glow in the dark nail art with a mermaid unicorn (mermicorn) stamping decal and a narwhale.

Mermicorn

June 11, 2021 Lisa 2

I’ve had this nail art painted for nearly a week, but I just haven’t felt like writing lately. Still, it’s more than time to share this nail art that helped me transition from a month of mermaids to a month of unicorns (Junicorn). I bring you a mermicorn. Okay, I Read More

A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

A bright pastel orange crelly with bunny mermaids (or bunnymaid) stamping decals with starfish and teal and white accents.

Bunnymaid

May 30, 2021 Lisa 0

Well, I thought I’d be posting this tomorrow, but I was rather slow to get my photos taken. Nevertheless, It’s still MerMay and I was determined to fit in at least one last mermaid mani. And what could be cuter than a few bunnies that are mermaids: bunnymaids! I’ve also Read More
