It’s late, but it’s still Tell a Fairy Tale Day for a bit longer! I chose The Swan Princess for #NailChallenge’s Fairy Tale prompt because #GlamNailsChallenge also had a Swan prompt and I thought that made a good fit. There are several tales involving swans in the common fairy tale 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

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

I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

Call me a dork if you will, but I have so many Things I want to paint for Halloween. Oh, the lists I have made trying to plan things out so I wouldn’t miss a big want-to-do for a small one. I have lists for polishes, stamping plates, and color Read More

I’m feeling like a complete-ist this month, but I knew I wasn’t going to be able to finish all of the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts and everything else I wanted to do unless I got a little bit creative. So I decided to combine daisies and foxes. It also conveniently meant that Read More

You may remember that I reviewed these stamping plates back in December 2017. So even though I’m not sticking the [press sample] notice on the top of the post because this isn’t a review, you should be aware that I did not use my own money to buy BeautyBigBang06 and Read More
