Okay, not the most original title, but it’s exactly what this nail art is about! Also, I was going to say this is my first set of wedding nails, but I have a #NailFail with wedding birds that I’m just not going to link to… /whistle I do have, like…one(?) Read More

I’m back with a new #TheInspirationChallenge nail art. This time we had an image of a model in a skirt with a lot of sheer black tiers. I loved how the bright aqua color of the wall behind her blended with the sheer black on the skirt to create this Read More

It’s the 27th day of the #31DC2017 and I am finally caught up. Also, I am tired because instead of keeping things simple, I decided to make really complex advanced stamping decals. Like an idiot. #31DC2017 – Inspired by a Pattern (Day 26) #Clairestelle8Sep – Metallic (bit late, oops) #FireDazedSept2017 Read More

This is the last catch-up manicure hopefully. I still have to get today’s nail art on my nails and out, but hopefully I haven’t picked something that will take too long. So the 25th #31DC2017 prompt is Inspired by Fashion and I debated quite a bit on what to do. Read More

The Girl in the Leopard Print Bikini

September 13, 2017 Lisa 2

I really admire the whole vintage Bettie Page-esque look. I occasionally come close to wearing it, but I am too lazy with hair and makeup (and my hair is too long). So I was really excited when #firedazedsept2017 included a Bettie Page prompt. Since I had to combine it with Read More

Clueless-ly Back to School

September 7, 2017 Lisa 2

There were a lot of Back to School prompts at the start of September and since I’ve already done two other manicures based on it, I was just going to skip the prompts this month. But then I thought of the iconic outfit from Clueless (and Iggy Azalea’s music video Read More

The subject for this #clairestelle8june challenge is fashion. I had these fantastic paisley water decals and I came very close to using them with some stamping on top. However. Behind the scenes I am doing a lot of nail art in a few days to catch up to all the Read More

I’m continuing my series of the mane six manis to celebrate My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 7 airing in mid-April with Rarity! She and I both have a love of fashion (although her love is mainstream and mine tends to be niche). I used the second half of Read More

Steampunk Fashion

October 24, 2016 Lisa 0

I usually plan these challenges out way ahead of time so ideas for my subject can percolate in the back of my brain for a while, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the topic of fashion. Initially I was going to keep it simple with Read More
