A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More

A plum flakie filled polish with earth-loving stamping images on top and a surprise nuclear explosion blowing up the planet. Oops!

Oops! Earth

I very much believe that we would all be in a better place if we considered ourselves caretakers of the planet instead of its rulers. So many of the things we do that end up causing us harm (like higher cancer rates in certain areas) wouldn’t be possible if we 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.

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!)

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
