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

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

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.

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.

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 red to black gradient nail art with swirls of magic and a wicked, sexy witch casting a summoning stamped on top plus a haunted house.

Witch of Summoning

Today’s look was brought to you by learning to stop before you ruin something. See, my initial plan was to have the vertical gradient and then stamp a whole landscape of haunted houses as a kind of French tip that then fades into the black. But then I thought I 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

A freehand UFO nail art design with an multichrome olive/red and blue sky, silver UFO with glow in the dark tractor beam and stars.

UFO: Grab and Go (and glow!)

February 16, 2021 Lisa 2

I had a big case of restlessness all last week so sitting down to do anything just wasn’t happening, hence the lack of posts. So I’m a little late posting this, but I did manage to turn the mani in on time for @aznailartchallenge’s ‘U’ is for UFO. I’m in Read More

A tan nail art with birch tree trunk stamping images highlighted with white nail polish and frolicking birds.

I was all set to paint dinosaur nail art for today’s look but I ended up deciding on a simpler subject matter for today. Don’t worry, though, dinosaur nails will happen soon. I keep buying stamping plates with them! But somehow today’s color–Pantone Sheepskin–felt like more of a tree nail Read More

A watercolor nail art with a sea turtle with mandala-esque patterns and lots of kelp colored in with actual watercolor paint.

I’ve been in a bit of a funk for the past few days, but I’ve finally gotten myself together enough to write this (brief) post. And, hey, it’s also been a while since I painted something with watercolor. And it’s been even longer–almost two years–since I painted my nails with Read More

Yellow and orange nail art with the demon Luci (cat) from Netflix's Disenchanted freehand painted on top of flames.

Luci the “Cat”

January 19, 2021 Lisa 2

My husband and I have been watching Netflix’s animated tv show Disenchanted since it started. It was created by the same person that started The Simpsons and Futurama–both shows that I watched in their early seasons. So if your sense of humor loved either of them, you’ll also love Disenchanted. Read More

A rainbow glow in the dark mani of silhouetted Halloween images of bats, jack-o-lanterns, haunted castle, spiders, and eyeball candy glowing out from a Christmas tree frame.

Halloween Tree

December 31, 2020 Lisa 3

I might as well end this crap year with something that makes me very happy. So today on New Years Eve I’m sharing the mani I painted for the #halloweenforevercollab: a Halloween Tree. The Nightmare Before Christmas has forever cemented a love of blending Christmas and Halloween together and so Read More
