Yin Yang Koi

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

Happy Sushi Day

Its International Sushi Day and this time I’m not missing out on posting this sushi nail art. I actually celebrated a day early with sushi for my husband and I while the kids nommed on McDonalds (their pick). Ah, well, not everyone loves sushi. We’ve found a great place that’s Read More

The time of the Gemini is coming to an end so I finally got myself together and took the matte photos I needed to post. This is just one of those looks that works well with matte and glossy so I wanted to share both. Of course this is a Read More

Keeping Cool at the Pool

I really thought I’d post more last month. I had all this nail art I wanted to do. And instead I’m posting one of the last two things I painted super late. Well, it’s summer and we’re not only getting the kids all to ourselves but we had a bunch Read More

My Favorite Weather

May 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is very reptilian since it features an anthropomorphic alligator (or crocodile if I misidentified it) and is all about my favorite weather: rain! No one should be surprised that I painted this at the end of April which is generally considered to be the rainy month in the Read More

I’ve had this nail art sketched out in my nail art ideas booklet for a looong time and I was super happy to finally have an excuse to paint it for @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘U’ is for Umbrella prompt. Pretty much combining happy wild songbirds with my favorite weather (rain) and umbrellas! Read More

I typically don’t paint back to school nail art or anything of the sort because I’m out of school and I’m not even remotely in charge of my stepchildrens’ schooling. Plus by August my old office was so hot. It was really hard to get much nail art done. So Read More

Thailand Meditations

March 29, 2022 Lisa 0

My husband spent two years in Thailand when he was much younger and still speaks a little Thai. So needless to say we both would love to visit Thailand. Mind you I am not fond of the high humidity high heat combination so we’re definitely not staying, but I want Read More

Zodiac Collection: Aries

I’m back with another mani where I try to use the items that came in the month’s Mani x Me box. This time it worked out for me and I used everything in the box but the extra item. (A cuticle tape used to mask the area around your nail. Read More
