A sweet candy cane nail art for the Christmas season with peppermint candy canes and holly on a dark olive green holographic polish.

Candy Cane Splendor

December 7, 2023 Lisa 0

I have been trying to finish this nail art for two years. I painted the base in December of 2021 and stamped the images. Then I painted a clear polish over them to turn them into decals and got distracted. Christmas was over. I’d only managed to fill in half Read More

A Thanksgiving nail art with dancing (or fighting) turkeys against a deep orange base with magenta shimmer and copper vegetable stamping.

Turkey Dance

Alas, the gap in nail art happened as predicted, but at least you had some warning this time, my poor reader! Today’s look was obviously in celebration of the United State’s Thanksgiving. Honestly, it’s a bit of a problematic holiday to me considering the story we tell about it compared Read More

A trick or treat nail art with cute candy corns dressed up as bats, devils, witches, mummies and more with Halloween candy on the side.

Trick or Treat

October 12, 2023 Lisa 0

Woof! I had a few days there where I just couldn’t get myself to paint and then I got cold-sick for the first time in many years. Blech! But I’m mostly better and back with a cute candy corn nail design because candy corns dressed up to go trick or Read More

Squirrel nail art with reverse stamping a realistic squirrel and some walnuts and leaves but mostly a tree pattern in a fall rainbow.

Autumn Squirrel

September 14, 2023 Lisa 0

Today’s squirrely look is a fall rainbow starting with spring green and running all the way to plumy violet. Living in a different state now, I actually see squirrels fairly often as they barrel through my yard. They have managed to plant many walnut trees according to my weeding. I 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

A toasty nail design that combines stamping decals of jamming out to rock music and jam on toast for January.

January Jams

January 7, 2023 Lisa 0

I do love alliteration and so does the host of the collab I painted this nail art for. And yet I’m such a literal person that I had to have both jam and a musician jamming in my design since they were both fair interpretations of the prompt. *sigh* I Read More

Glitzy teal Christmas ornament nail art with Christmas pickles stamped in the background and Santa, reindeer, elf stamping decal ornaments.

Kawaii Ornaments

December 20, 2022 Lisa 2

I knew that I wanted to paint this ornament nail art the minute I added Maniology’s “Sequins” to my shopping cart. There’s something about alternative holiday color schemes that just feels really special. I love both the white/gold and teal/magenta Christmas looks the best. Today’s look obviously focuses on teal/magenta Read More

Happy Hanukkah nail art featuring menorah and dreidel stamping decals on a rich, green patterned background.

Happy Hanukkah

December 5, 2022 Lisa 1

It’s incomprehensible to me why anti-Semitism persists in existing, but it really feels like it’s shouting a lot louder right now. So even though I am not a Jew (or a Christian or anything but someone who can cherry pick any holiday they want), I thought it was time to Read More

A deep red and prugly green stiletto mani with the Disney-esque evil queen from Snow White and her poison apple. Eat me!

Eat the Poison Apple

October 28, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look was inspired by the second baddest Disney queen: the evil queen. I’m not sure she even had a name, but I love her nose when she goes full crone. I don’t think I’m alone in loving her elderly form so much more than the haughty younger one. She’s Read More

Summer nail art with melting popsicles and ice cream stamping decals on top of a crelly that resembles chocolate mint ice cream.

You Make Me Melt

August 2, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s not terribly original, but I totally had to paint ice cream nails when given a “melt” prompt. Luckily no one else chose to use the Creative Shop-120 stamping plate with the perfect phrase “You make me melt”, which made for an easy themed nail art. My greatest hardship was Read More
