A pastel vintage dog and rose nail art with giant pink rose stamping images and cute corgis in puppy love (some holding roses).

Puppy Love

February 18, 2024 Lisa 2

Valentine’s Day is over but the Instagram prompts keep coming. I don’t mind. I still have plenty of unused things that fit the theme. One thing about working with false nails all the time. I actually had this set painted for years. I can’t even remember what my original plan Read More

A brightly tacky holiday nail art with a rainbow of holographic nail foils and black holiday patterns with trees and flowers stamped on top.

Tacky Holidays

December 31, 2023 Lisa 0

There’s always at least one ugly sweater prompt floating around Instagram for December. It’s tradition and it’s fun if you’ve embraced the truth that ugly really means tacky. And I love tacky. The more I look at these nails, the more I love them. I’m always one for rainbows, but Read More

Poinsettia nail art using a bright red jelly with white glitter sandwiched inside and a dark blue negative space stamp of poinsettias.

Poinsettia jelly

Today’s look is brought to you by poinsettias, a flower that I have painted fairly consistently over the years. (Not nearly as many as roses though.) This is probably the simplest version I’ve ever done since it’s just the base and a negative space pattern of poinsettias on top. I’d Read More

A blue on blue hedgehog nail art design with a double stamped floral hedgehog framed by light blue texture polish.

Winter Hedgehog

It amuses me that I have a very blue (with a little purple) nail art to share right after a lot of Democratic voting victories here in America. I didn’t plan it that way though. This cute little hedgehog mani was painted clear back in 2021 and I just never Read More

Spider nail art of delicate, bejeweled spider webs with spider friends, framed by florals stamped on a dark musty green flakie polish.

Spiders, Spiders, Everywhere

The spiders are certainly very visible presences right now. The orb weavers are orbing all over my yard and the house spiders are shaking tail in my home. It’s a weird point of pride when I see a particularly big one. Today’s look is for the spiders in my bushes. Read More

Beautiful sunflower nail art in soft yellows on a shimmery orange background with a wicked flipside stamping of spiders on their webs.

Sunflowers and Spiders

September 30, 2023 Lisa 1

Today’s look is all about sweet, beautiful sunflowers. Until it’s not. Hee hee! I truly love both sides of this nail art for different reasons, but holy cow it was a lot of layers. One layer for the spiders. One layer for the spider webs. Three layers of the magenta Read More

A sweet fox nail art using watercolor-esque fox water decals on top of a pale yellow crelly base with metallic floral prints stamped on top.

Water Decal Foxes

It’s funny how we associate different things with different seasons even though they often exist all year round. Like…pumpkins being a fall thing makes sense because that’s when they are ready to be inserted into your face or plopped on your front stoop (this year I’m seeing a lot of 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

September 22, 2023 Lisa 0

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

A simple floral nail art in purples and browns with flower and butterfly stamping decals and the word "today".

Floral Today

September 17, 2023 Lisa 0

I was supposed to post this clear back in April. It was for a challenge. With a collage. The only colors I could use were purple and brown and I did a fairly decent job even though I was trying to come back from a painting drought. But I kept Read More

A bright yellow hibiscus and pineapple nail art with a "sexy" censored pineapple stamping decal to make it tropically funny.

Hot Tropic Pineapples

Sometimes when you get back into a hobby after a long absence you just…mess up on things a bunch because you forgot some of the “checks” you normally do. Today’s false nail set were stamped upside down from my usual. Honestly, I orientate my nail art the way I do Read More
