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

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

Sugar Skull Cat

December 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’ve been wanting to paint a sugar skull cat and accompanying fish for at least two years. In fact, the false nails I used for this mani have been sporting their black jelly base since 2019’s Day of the Dead. I am good at intimidating myself out of freehand painting. Read More

Avocado My Heart

Because I love avocado. Maybe it’s considered basic to love them, but so what? Load up your toast with some mashed green goodness and maybe enjoy this Comedy Central skit defending being basic. Because we all need the little things to help lift up our spirits and keep us from Read More

Ages ago I had white gel polish on my nails and I decided to paint this design real quick and save it for a rainy day. I’d seen several images like this on t-shirts and bags and anything with four letters goes well on the nails. This was inevitable! I’m Read More

But I think this turned out to be a great combination: Ghost and Astrology. I love the little crabs that symbolize Cancer so I used that along Read More

A B C…Zzz

March 14, 2019 Lisa 0

I’d drawn up this design to use the ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ that one of my stamping plates had. I figured I’d pull it out if I had to do another Back to School prompt. But then #AZNailArtChallenge restarted with ‘A’ is for Alphabet and, well, I couldn’t not use Read More

Polar Bear Smooches

December 18, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s always amusing to see what subjects I return to. I still haven’t painted penguin nails, but this is my third polar bear nail art. My first one was also for Christmas so maybe this will end up being a tradition of some sort. Either way, when I had the Read More
