French nail art on a flakie-filled cream crelly with stamping decals of delicious French food like wine, croissants, and french press coffee.

Simple French Cuisine

August 8, 2021 Lisa 1

It’s funny how the French are associated with cooking that takes many specialized cooking utensils and techniques and also the simplest and most delicious of foods. (Mind you, I am aware that making your own croissants would take a lot of work. So many layers…) I definitely can recommend all Read More

Teal/blue-green nail polishes with soft watercolor-like water decals of yummy ice cream dishes (sundae and milkshake) on top.

Teal and Ice Cream

July 17, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look really shouldn’t have been so hard to get right and I’m not entirely happy with it, but it’s time to post it and move on. I had the nail challenge prompt ice cream and a few water decal sheets that fit. I figured it was time to use Read More

A yellow to bright green thermal polish with sweetly flattering orange and lemon stamping decals on top and more happy food on the thumb.

Citrus Kindness

June 25, 2021 Lisa 2

Okay, the title to this mani isn’t all that creative, but the main stamping images came from the Kindness is Magic stamping plate from The Stamping Shop Collab, so I just went with it. And since my theme was already going to be citrus, I decided to go with citrus-y Read More

A turquoise to white thermal nail polish with stamping decals of a mermaid and crab enjoying watermelon and a full-nail watermelon pattern on the thumb.

Oceanic Watermelon Picnic

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

Nail art of dinosaur eggs (one broken with yolk, one glow in the dark with a baby dinosaur, and one just hatched) stamped on a blood red glitter filled base.

Life Finds a Way

April 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I have managed to get my hands on all four of Moyou London’s Jurassic Park stamping plates. So instead of painting typical Easter nail art for the #AZNailArtChallenge ‘Y’ is for Yolk or even more Gudetama nail art (which I do want to do more of some time), I went Read More

Easter nail art starting with a soft grey crelly with pastel glitters and a cute anthropomorphic bunny wearing a carrot t-shirt and carrots!

Rabbits and Root Vegetables

April 5, 2021 Lisa 1

Just like we shouldn’t be feeding ducks bread, we shouldn’t be giving rabbits carrots regularly as they are too high in sugar for them. Rabbits should be nomming the greens on the carrots instead (which by the way you can eat in your salad as well; one half of the Read More

A cupcake nail art with a cupcake water decal accent nail and creamsicle-like water spotted nails in white, orange, and coral.

Creamy Cupcake + Water Spotting Tutorial

March 21, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s nail art was brought to you by cupcakes, the water spotted technique, and water decals. Today’s tutorial brought to you by my desire to figure out why I wasn’t getting larger spots. It’s funny how things come together. I could have done advanced/reverse stamping cupcakes as I have tons Read More

Two baked goods manis: one pink with sprinkles donut mani of people "hunting" a donut and the other a yummy chocolate chip cookie nail art with a hungry bunny.

Two Baked Goods Manis

March 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I’m pretty sure now that trying to lump these posts together isn’t working for me. LOL Oh, well. Everything you do is just practice for the next thing. Today I have a cookie nail art and a donut one. This shouldn’t be a surprise since the challenge I’m following this Read More

Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

Three Sweet Manis

March 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

A pale mint and chocolate chip nail polish base with rice, fish, and miso soup stamping decals as a Japanese breakfast.

Fishy Breakfast

February 19, 2021 Lisa 4

I used to be all about the French toast and the crepes stuffed with whip cream and fruit. Like…give me the dessert breakfast, please. And there’s cereal or the typical platter of pancakes/hash browns/bacon/eggs. Those are nice, but that’s not what I typically eat for breakfast anymore. Yesterday I had Read More
