Bridge to the Heavens

My nail art has been much simpler lately due to both time and challenge prompt constraints, but this design is as extra as I get using 9 polishes, 5 stamping plates, and 11 advanced stamping decals (for just one hand). You’ll understand why when you see the prompt image that Read More

Peachy Pink Poppies

February 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back tonight with a soft floral look featuring Pantone’s Peachy Pink shade. I was really excited to make a look for such a pretty color and spent way too much time going back and forth through my stamping plate collection. But I finally settled on poppies because alliteration is Read More

This particular design also ended up on Instagram before the blog to make the deadline before #pantone2019winterchallenge switched to the new week. Technically, I think I posted around 3 AM so I was still too late. Luckily, Ine is forgiving (or is polite and can’t stop me anyway 🀣). I’m Read More

Seasonally Inappropriate Flowers

January 5, 2020 Lisa 1

I am back with another design for #Pantone2019WinterChallenge. If you only read my blog and don’t follow me on Instagram, you’ve missed the last two. But I promise I will write a post about them soon and even throw in a third design. All of them are for Christmas though. Read More

Blue Bird of Autumn – BP Review (stamping polish)

[press sample] I painted this in September, but it really felt more fall-like than summer so I have held it back until now. Unfortunately, that meant holding back my review for Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” as well, but… Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” …it ended up looking so similar to their “Orange Autumn” Read More

Flowers of Eden

Today’s nail art is supposed to mainly use Pantone’s lovely forest green shade: Eden. I have had to paint this one three different times. The first color I picked was too dark so I decided to try again. The second one (this one) is too light, but I decided to Read More

It seems like I only paint coral nails when it comes from a nail challenge prompt (#LigaNailistaChallenge) and then I just want to go full on coral. So today I have another coral monochrome. You can see the one I painted in 2017 here [Edit 1-16-2018: Sorry, it was a Read More

Glittery Poinsettia - Hermit Werds - red manicure with a pink accent nail covered with iridescent glitter and freehand painted holly leaves and poinsettia flowers (Robin Moses)

Glittery Poinsettia

Well, I’m going to be getting out of order, but I haven’t forgotten the nail art prompts that I missed! I really wanted to paint some Robin Moses nail art this month, but I wasn’t interested in snowmen (which is what the prompts were for on Instagram) so I asked Read More
